    Just finished Hallow Knight

    Any Hallow Knight fans in here? I finally got around to playing it, and can’t believe it took me this long. After FF7, Super Metroid is my favorite game of all time. But after finishing Hallow Knight I’m having to seriously evaluate if I liked this more than Metroid. For those of you who...

    Has anyone heard this version of blue fields? Man, it gives me chills. An orchestral rendition just works so well with this song.

    Yeah, granted I’m not nearly as knowledgeable on FF7 as a lot of people on here are. But I always took it as sephiroth had jenova cells injected into him while he was growing in the womb. He is the closest thing Gaia has seen to being Jenova because of having jenova in him literally when he was...

    @ThatGuyMikey please share with us your thoughts on here if and when you get around to playing remake! All of the newcomers to FF7 I’ve seen have all been people who played remake first then went back and played OG. I’m interested in seeing how someone new to FF7 who played OG first perceives...

    @ThatGuyMikey Maximillian Dood is maybe my favorite person to listen to talk about FF7. He doesn’t have quite the lore knowledge that some people do, but his passion for the game is so obvious. I could listen to him talk FF7 for hours. He actually met part of the dev team for remake including...

    FF Newbie Starting FF7 original

    Me and my friend didn’t understand crap about the materia system or rpgs as kids. If we couldn’t bludgeon the Enemy to death by spamming attack and bolt, we weren’t beating it unless we grinded a crap load. Or flee from every battle until we had to face a boss and be totally under leveled and...

    it took about two years for us to get to aeriths death. And by then, I had been attached to her for so long. I used to ponder the story all the time while at school and how the story would unfold. And As cheesy as this sounds, when she died, it truly felt at the time like I had lost a friend...

    As a seven year old in 1997, my friend jeff and I discovered FF7 in his Dad’s secret stash of “adult games” while he was away at work on night shift. We’d secretly play it while he was at work. The plot was so over my head at the time, but I fell in love with the characters, music, story...

    I’m hoping CC comes to the PlayStation store eventually. I’ve tried to watch playthroughs but I always find myself frustrated and wanting to control the character myself so I can go at my own pace and examine stuff to my liking. I’ve never finished watching it. That would be a nice thing to add...

    Gotcha. I’ve never read the ultimanias. I’ve played FF7, remake, and seen AC. seen bits and pieces of dirge and CC. I couldn’t ever remember it specifically being addressed in any of them other than the implication of it at end of FF7. That’s good to know.

    Was aerith rallying the lifestream specifically mentioned somewhere in the compilation or an ultimania that I’ve missed? Or are you thinking that’s the likely implication being made at the end with it showing aeriths face?

    FF Newbie Starting FF7 original

    Right? I’ve never thought about that either. Or why everything was all black for her initially. Just from reading through these posts, I got to thinking - what caused the lifestream to burst from the ground and stop meteor at the end? Was it the will of the planet itself, or aerith exerting...

    FF7 along with the compilation is something I’ve never 100% grasped. But I think that’s what keeps me coming back to it. I feel like everytime I revisit it, I uncover something new. And the remake has multiplied that exponentially. It’s a very exciting time to be a FF7 fan. I’m enjoying the ride.

    I’m way late to this party, but just wanted to say I really enjoyed you chronicling your experience as you went. It was fun to read and experience my favorite game of all time again vicariously through you. Thanks for posting!

    The Missing FF Elements of FF7

    I would appreciate the battle arena in gold saucer to have an arcade game outside of it where you could do battle arena stuff in it with strictly turn-based combat. Have Cloud and the party put on VR to access it. Heck, you could even have Chadley do it or have him involved somehow since he’s...

    Top 5 final fantasy soundtracks

    I’ve only heard a small handful of songs from XIII and XII. The only ones that come to mind are the battle/ boss theme and opening piano bit from XIII and the boss theme from XII. Are there any other notable songs from these that you’d recommend? Would like to check these out sometime.

    Top 5 final fantasy soundtracks

    It’s funny you mention that...before Remake came out, me and a childhood friend that I played FF7 with in 1997 were talking our favorite FF music, and I ended up making a list of my top 20 favorite FF songs. I admittedly spent waaay too much time and thought into this list, but I can’t help...

    Who doesn’t love a good top 5? Here are mine (disclosure - I’ve only played FF 1-10, except 3): 5) IV 4) VII Remake 3) VIII 2) VI 1) VII I almost put 8 as #2. For all the flack it gets, it had a phenomenal soundtrack. Fishermans horizon is one of my favorite songs period. All in all...

    I just began playing this game again last week for the first time in probably 15+ years. I find that it’s resonating with me more this time around, now that I understand the junction system. Also the 3x speed option on remaster really helps make the grind with draws more bearable. I like...
