The graphic design, the colors, the writer's personality. Looking at these, I feel the wonder they would've imparted on to-be players. There's a mysterious, yet vibrant texture to the original game that I feel like can't be reproduced today. Viewing FFVII's puzzle piece story through the window of a fuzzy CRT TV undeniably ignited an entire generation's imagination. It truly felt like every screen held a secret.
