If it wants to be universally loved & remade every five years, it should be called Pokemon VII.
Final Fantasy VII has never once been remade (the PC version is more of a port, and that's the closest it's ever had). And I can't think of any other xxx VII that is universally loved, or even close to it.
If you want a Final Fantasy game subject to constant remakes, you need to look at IV, not VII.
