We deserved a Final Fantasy 6 remake before a Final Fantasy 7 remake. There, I said it.
Final Fantasy 6 (Final Fantasy 3 to the Western audience) and Final Fantasy 7 are widely considered to be two of the best RPGs in gaming history. The original Final Fantasy 7 was a great game and the remake is pretty darn good so far. That doesnt take away from the fact that a Final Fantasy 6 remake could have been even better. The sixth installment in the franchise is of higher quality and deserved to receive the remake treatment first.
