Those aren’t really remakes, they’re touched up ports, though I agree entirely they were trash. A remake is a game that has been taken and been redone entirely, sort of like the FF7 remake (there tons of things have been changed or adjusted). A proper remaster would be something like the Secret of Mana one, even should people dislike the change in graphics, the visual change and gentle changes to mechanics makes it a good example of a good remaster.
I would love to see a remaster or remake if it is done right. I wouldn’t mind seeing one remade in Dissidia PSP graphics or FF12 graphics with nothing changed, but if they wanted to try something similar to FF7 remake provided core story lines and character personalities and interactions weren’t changed, it would be okay.
