“Remaking Legitimacy in Final Fantasy VII” -Article for First Person Scholar

Check out an article I wrote for First Person Scholar entitled “Remaking Legitimacy in Final Fantasy VII: What the Remake Can Learn from a Pirate Demake

Issues about fan labor, peripheral game development, and bootlegs games are increasingly becoming important topics to me, and this paper touches upon a lot of concepts and ideas I find interesting. Broadly the paper argues that games developed outside of the traditional games industry are wrongfully denied legitimacy because of lacking certain western-centric notions of “gaming realness”. I hope it’s an interesting article for you all and (hopefully) I’ll have more articles to share in the future.
