Let V and VI rest in peace. There is no need for SE to butcher them with remakes.
Thats a stupid thing to say. Making them more accessible to others is not butchering them. What if someone wants to play those games on the latest handhelds or wants them all in one location? All they're doing is giving the new gen an opportunity to experience classics. Also if it wasn't for remakes we wouldn't have the ULTRA SUPERIOR FF3 DS/PSP, 4 DS, 5 and 6 gba.
There are some points where Slattery's literal translation was better (The Opera and Celes' Suicide Attempt), and others where the Woolseyisms were better (all of Kefka's lines). The GBA also just had a poor-quality sound system in which the same 10 instruments or so were often reused.
