Reading through the Villa page, I noticed the comment that buying the Villa would be an achievement if FFVII were remade today. Thinking about it, I believe that is probable accurate, and that got me thinking, what other things would become achievements?

Lady's Man - Being chosen as Don Corneo's lucky lady.
Materia-listic - Obtain every Materia.
It's Huge - Obtaining the Huge Materia.
Fortification - Winning every Fort Condor mission.
WEAPON Slayer - Defeating the WEAPONS.
All that is Golden - Obtain a Gold Chocobo.
Double Agent - Earn the top prizes in the Shinra March competitions.

What other ones can you think of?

Are they not still achievements in original game? I personally think they are if you haven't done it yet.

Hopefully, the achievements won't include as many typos as this thread ;).

And ergh at giving out achievements for things that are impossible to not do. I hate that trend.

I think it'd be better to give you a trophy if you beat Emerald without having Underwater Materia equipped? In exchange, probably set the timer to 10.00 or something like that.


Fallen One - Defeat Sephiroth
Peacefullness - Finish Final Fantasy VII normal mode


???
What's the difference?


Interrupted by Fireworks - Date Aerith and Tifa


I think it would be better if you could get all ingame trophies in one go (except for the 'complete in normal/hard mode')


The Joy of Travelling - Make the Man in Kalm leave his house for his Worldtrip


Uh... doesn't this require you to beat the WEAPONS...? And beating them gives gold trophies...?

Anyways...

One Winged Angel - Defeat Sepher Sephiroth in 5 minutes.
Dragon Lord - Obtain all 3 Bahamut Summon-materias.
Treasure Hunter - Held every weapon, armor and accessory at least once in your hands.
Unsneaky - Defeat the Midgar Zolom. (trophy color may vary if Zolom's difficulty is changed)
Full Power - Reach Lv 99 with every party member.
Ancient Spirit - Complete the Ancient Forest.
The Wall of Fame - Get 5000+ points in Speed Square.
Pro Jockey - Win 10 races in Rank S with one chocobo.
Cactus on Ice - Unlock the Cactuar ghost in the Snowboarding minigame.
Crazy Motorcycle - Get 10000+ points in the G-Bike minigame.
Your Fortune - Seen every one of Cait Sith's "Reels"-results.

I don't mind it so much - although I disagree with the idea of an achievement/trophy for starting a game, I do think that you can generally judge how much of a game has been played through by their achievements/trophies, and with that in mind it makes sense to have them be given out as you get through 'stages' of the game as well as when you complete sidequests etc.

There are two Emerald WEAPON trophies. One of them is the one you want to exist.

It's the trophy/achievement in some games. You get a trophy for the final boss and one for finishing the game itself. Darksiders for example has such trophies.

I don't. And if you are okay with a normal and a hard mode trophy you have to finish the story at least twice so it is the same.

No. For the Kalm Traveller you need to give him 3 items. The trophies are connected, but not the same.

I know how you make the Kalm Traveller leave. It just seems strange to me that that is merely a silver trophy.

Please answer my question; Why are these not already achievements? Is it because it's an old game? You don't have to remake a game to play it.

I donít see anything wrong with one for starting. I make sure that all my achievements have timestamps, so I can see how long I messed around trying to beat a game for the first time.

XBOX360 included a section for "Achievements" that the designers decide what should be an achievement and gamerpoints and etc. and etc. The thread is asking if FFVII was to be remade, what would the designer made "Achievements" be?

All Pain, No (Materia) Gain - Obtain all character's ultimate weapons

Don't Like Suits - Encounter (and defeat) the Turks in all optional locations that you can find them

ZolOMG - Defeat the Midgar Zolom BEFORE entering the Mythril Cave for the first time

Sharpshooter - Score 100 successive points in the Gold Saucer basketball game

Digital Champion - Win the 'rock-paper-scissors'-style fighting game in the Wonder
Square

Bless You - Collect 99 Tissues

Skillful - Obtain all Enemy Skills

Memory Jogger - Get the full story of the Gold Chocobo from the Chocobo Sage

Armageddon Fist - Yeah! all of Tifa's 8 reels

(or alternatively)

Armageddon Fist - Win the Scarlet vs. Tifa mini game on the Sister Ray without getting hit

Makings of a Hero - During the Kalm flashback, Cloud must not die in any battle (this is kind of silly, because it is pure chance if you survive or not)


All I can think of for now. It's fun coming up with the names of these! =]

A bronze trophy each for collecting each characters full list of limit breaks, and a gold for getting Aeris's.

Oh, I see. I just thought it meant what the PLAYER would concider an "achievment".

Wouldn't the logical place to look for that be the in-game timer?

The in-game timer measures time playing. He means time inclusive of when the game is off. Also deaths return the timer to what it was at the save point iirc.

If you ever have seen me play an FPS, you'll realise pretty quickly that there is no way in hell, even if I had three of the best EoFF has to offer on my side, I would finish all campaigns on expert. I'd be lucky to get through one. xD
