Is playing the original FF7 necessary to fully appreciate the remake?

From everything I’ve seen, playing the original is absolutely best before playing the remake. But I don’t know, it just hasn’t aged very well. From the 8 directional movement to the 2D backgrounds to the confusing world design, I’m not enjoying myself as much as I think I should be. I can totally see how good it must have been 20 years ago, but now…eh. The trailer for the PS5 FF7 Remake upgrade reminded me that I had it and have never played it. So what do you guys think? Is it absolutely necessary that I fully finish the original before playing the remake? Or will I be fine without it? Just looking for some guidance here.
