I am creating a final fantasy game, but it's not remake or anything, it's just another game in the long running series.
Resident Evil is a perfect example of an action game and turning it into an RPG. U meet the characters, defeat the enemies with the weapons and using items and besides, it's got a long history in the series as well. I would if I could, but there's no decent resources out there.
I've seen the FFVII remake for the NES and I can't believe they managed to pull it off. The game was terrible coz it couldn't meet the requirements of the PSone classic - people on here have tried to do remake the game for RMXP, but no luck at all.
Splinter Cell RPG? That will be hard, so good luck with it.
