    No FF, [​IMG]. Not a lot of votes though, it's all about money in the end. IF game developers and publishers know that a game wont sell well, they wont go ahead and do it to a few who may even probably in the end pirate it.

    Okami has so far been my favorite game for the wii,
    so I would love a sequel, especially how they left the ending.

    One of the best imports of all time in my opinion.

    Loved the anime and games

    It's got cute girls, dating sim elements, mecha, and it's an RPG

    All win

    Nobody really wants a remake of FF7, especially not the Japanese. Mainly deluded western weeaboos/fanboys that people feel embaressed living in the same country as want it.

    Back ontopic though, I would really enjoy a ZoE sequel, even though I think there aren't many places left to go with the current story. I think I recall Kojima saying something about wanting to make a new ZoE, but about not having the time to do it. I hope if he does find time he makes it as epic as the first 2 games.

    This, as well as Breath of Fire and Wild ARMs.

    I got seriously hooked in the fan translation of the Famicon Tantei Kurabu 2 remake, and I really want to at least play the first game in English since it takes place after 2.

    Breath of Fire, that series is long overdue for a sequel. I mean, each game released so far has a 2-3 year gap in between.

    Wild ARMs, I loved the series to death! I really wish more people knew about it, because it seriously needs attention.

    That's all I want to see. Developers should listen to the survey.
