Anyone with at least passing acknowledgement of E3 and basic knowledge of games before 2000 will know the cult classic Final Fantasy 7 is getting a remake after many years of begging. It was one of those wishes people would conjure up on a ???if you could have any game at all, what would you have???? list. After all, the writing would already be there (which has somewhat been a weakness of Square Enix as of late) and it would be combined with their strength: Graphical prowess. It was one of those wishes no one thought would happen.
…And then it did, along to smoky narration that sounds like Wayne June (narrator of Darkest Dungeon).
Needless to say, A LOT of people lost their minds. You had people proclaiming right there and then that E3 was finished and Sony had won it. Destructoid had a make-shift banner at the top of the page announcing with excitement this was going to be a thing. There were also videos being posted up of reactions to the trailer. Which, unlike most reaction videos, aren’t the worst thing in the world to watch. So let’s have a look-see at a couple of them.

Ah… The wonderful sounds of screaming…
