I've read this will be sold by episodes. Not a great idea for an RPG, if you ask me...
I like the original game (Although it wouldn't make a Top 5 favourite
FF in my list. Not even top 10 if I can include spin-offs, lol), but after all the "subproducts" made around FFVII, I'm kind of "emotionally divorced" from this game. It has been retconed/changed too much for me to care.
What it's shown doesn't seem bad by itself though, (although the goofy designs kind of stand out with the "realistic" look of this game, but that never stopped things like Dirge of Cerberus), but we'll see how this thing ends.
I fear more changes and additions, though. Yet i'm kind of curious about how are they going to do the "Cloud as a woman" or "Cloud having a bath surrounded by male bodybuilders" things with all these flashy graphics. There's no more blocky polygons and simple textures to help.
In any case, just play the genres you like and stay away from genres you don't like but let people who like them do so. I personally loathe the first person shooter genre, yet I don't claim that they remake Halo as a turn based RPG or anything.
Even then I think you owe yourself to try different genres from time to time. You may find something you end up enjoying, and sometimes is good to "give a rest" to the genres you play the most.
