Out of nowhere, I needed to mention that I really fucking love this game. The graphics are mind blowing for 1997 and I still really like the style and colors of it, very unique. Nothing else will quite look like it. The soundtrack still hits close to home. I remember growing up, this game gave me a more powerful sense of nostalgia than almost anything else, because it's so odd yet also so personal. Moments like

Show Spoiler

, and more all had a big impact on me. There's good bits of humor and odd charm mixed in too, it's not just drama. And as popular as it is, it's such a weird, mysterious game. In a way, I still don't feel like I "get" it. But that's part of the charm.

Good Bye It's impossible for me to pick a favourite battle system, they all have their merits.

Dr Eggnog Oh I definitely like some more than others. The system in IX is pretty blah to me. Once I got the hang of the Junction system in VIII I loved it. I also really like the Job System in V, it's okay in III. The Sphere Grid in X is simple but feels really cool. I didn't care about the materia system in VII as a kid but now I like it, it's fun to level it up. Materia fusion in Crisis Core is really cool, I can get my HP to 9999 long before the game is over, which is really important on Hard mode. IV doesn't really have a system, you just kinda get abilities as you level up.

Silent Gamer You are a man after my own heart, Egg. V, Crisis Core and X are all favourites of mine

I gotta say, this game is really, really, really fucking great. I'm about to finish it for the fourth time, and it's even better than I remembered. It's really damn great.
Lord Noddington it is possible that you were right all along.

Michael Z Best game ever, in case I forgot to mention. Actually, I have some late shifts coming up so I may as well spend my afternoons constructively by replaying this game too...

Final Fantasy VII is a game that promises a lot during the first couple of hours, but fails to deliver on the long run. First and foremost, the juvenile, or should I say, kids' cartoon plot is really engaging, I like most of the characters and the way the story (and death) was handled. The graphics are really good and the soundtrack is something worth listening during the day. I don't like the random battles, the minigames, the huge amount of filler content, but the good outweigh the bad. I didn't actually finish the game, because it froze once and the final boss killed me twice. As I was feeling like I was wasting my time (especially because the Supernova animation takes a lot of minutes), I decided to give up and just watch the ending on Youtube. When a game feels like a waste of time, the best thing to do is just let it go. Overall I enjoyed FFVII, it is not the best JRPG ever (I prefer Panzer Dragoon Saga and Chrono Trigger), but a very good one. Now I'm ready to try FF IX.

Score: 8.5 (Great!)

Leo Barbosa I hope they can correct that in the remake. It was fun in the beginning, but now it's just annoying.

Gries He Too bad random encounters aren't fun. Never were, never will be.

Silent Gamer ^ I had a higher tolerance for them when I was younger, because there was no alternative. Nowadays there is more variety, so it's time for them to go the way of the dinosaur

Finished it just before the end of holidays, last time I did I think I was 15 or so. Apart from the graphics and some pacing issues towards the end it's still a fun game. I'd forgotten a lot about the story, it has a very pro-planet message that is even more relevant now than it was back then. It's odd playing something so old that doesn't feel out of place with current events, but it was a nice surprise. I like the writing style in the older FF games. It can still be cheesy and emotional, but the dialog moves at a fast pace so you never get bogged down in it. I'd also completely forgotten about the "500 years later" scene! I'd actually like to see a game set in that period rather than a remake now lol.

Dr Eggnog The graphics are one of my favorite things about it lol.

It never occurred to me as a kid but all the Weapons are Kaiju! On top of everything else, FF7 is also a Godzilla movie lol.

Dr Eggnog The Simpsons is my number 1 show and there's a lot of other comedies on my list, but I bet I wouldn't like quite a few of them if I saw them for the first time. I'm not nearly as into comedy as I used to be and it's hard for TV to get me to laugh a lot, though I do like Frasier and American Dad a lot these days. I really like to take stuff seriously, but I also like more optimistic stuff than I did as a kid. Really, comedy is generally very mean spirited and cynical at it's core, while I find shows like Buffy and Star Trek The Next Generation optimistic, even though they're dramas and plenty of bad things happen, especially in Buffy. I find the feeling of caring to be a positive one. And I hardly need to mention how optimistic Pony is or how much I care about it. In short, it's not easy to get me to have dumb fun these days, and even as a kid I think I took media more seriously than most kids, and dumb fun is never what I cared about most. South Park is the funniest show I've ever seen and it's not in my top ten. When I was a kid, instead of silly shows being my favorites it was Digimon and Samurai Jack (though both shows seem much sillier now that I'm older).

Bob GutSmasha You earned back some points with Samurai Jack but I need to put Metal Gear Solid 3 on your homework list.

Dr Eggnog I've played a few hours into it before and I don't think I like the graphics or story or environments as much as the first two games. It feels really hard to not get caught but really easy to fight your way out of it, which is the opposite of MGS2, and I prefer 2's way. And yeah Samurai Jack was my favorite show when I was about 10, compared to when I was a little younger and Digimon was a favorite show and when I was little older and . . . Digimon became my favorite show again through the episodes I had recorded on VHS.

First time playing FF7 seriously. First time I left Midgar. A-MAZING. Engaging story and great soundtrack. I am still mourning some NPC's deaths. How did they do that? I can't stop playing. I don't really think a remake is necessary, but I would love to play this game with the same graphics and voice acting. Now I want to know what happens next and I need to play every FF ever released. Not overrated.

Silent Gamer I didn't realise so many people had never properly played it before

Returning to Nibelheim is a mindfuck. Sephiroph has such a great build up, I'm totally convinced now that it deserves a remake.

Bob GutSmasha Apples and oranges in a lot of ways. FFVI was a very theatrical game, Kefka was kind of a goofball but dangerous, like a clown carrying a pocket knife or something.

11 months ago

Dr Eggnog Maybe I don't like the theatrical style and that's why I couldn't get into VI.

11 months ago

Dr Eggnog It was one of my favorite games visually, I adore the soundtrack, I have buckets of nostalgia, Cloud, Barrett, and Tifa are on my favorite characters list, I find leveling up materia fun, and a certain famous death left me in shock for an hour. How's that?

Just got to Cosmo Canyon and finished the events there. I forgot how sad and touching the game was. Square's writing was simpler and more down to earth, easier to relate to. I guess they couldn't just keep writing these same type of stories forever though, it will be fun to see how they flesh it out in the remake though.

It's strange how the theme of this game is actually more relevant today than it was during release. The whole Planet and Mako dilemma is the same as the global warming and coal issues.

I meant to play other games today but mostly just ran FFVII, it's fun to play something which actually holds up well to nostalgia.

Damn, I'd completely forgotten about Jenova. The story really was good, paced really well too. The biggest difference so far between the older FF games and FFXIII is just sheer speed, the story and battles play out so much faster in the older games.

Dr Eggnog Neat, I'd never heard of Last Order. I might watch it later.

Silent Gamer That whole movie is a major spoiler though if you haven't played the game

Bob GutSmasha I played it when I was a kid so I was okay, great little animation too. Wish there was more, it helped to show why SOLDIER are so damn crazy, and can hold that stupid big sword.
