I don't see how anyone could possibly say that FFVII took a step back in story compare to FFVI. It delved into topics VI barely even scratched the surface of. Mega-corporations exerting more power than they should in a government, terrorism, and environmental messages that were pretty fucking heavy coming from a video game in the 90s? Seriously.

Yeah I agree, that was pretty much the thing I remember blewing my mind when I played it for the first time in 2008 or so. I was asking myself while playing the game randomly "This was really made in '97?" I honestly couldn't believe how compelling the narrative was at times.

Best track in the entire game!

Haven't read this thread too much but, I was reading a little bit about the series in Wikipedia and saw Grandia Online.

What happen with that?

Playing a ton of Final Fantasy IX and loving the soundtrack. To think that FFIX along with Metal Gear Solid got me into gaming and to learn English... what can I say other than it has been a lot of fun. :)

Did that same Ultimania book mention how Tifa sucked Cloud's cock while he was vegging out in Mideel?

I like the part where that girl gets atabbed with a large sword.

You know, Tifa, right before you go demolish the end of the game. Cloud and her all cuddled up, you KNOW he hit that. Fuck squeenix, fuck fanboys, no straight man would not have hit that, I don't care if meteor was 3 inches from my dick and I had on a flammable condom covered in petroleum based lube, I'd still hit that.

That actually happens, and it is even mentioned in one of the Ultimania books published by Square Enix I remember correctly.

I loved the music in 7. Can't really remember anything else except the motorcycle mini game

This might refresh your memory.

I was still kid when FFVII came out and I don't have memories from '97 (not to mention that I was not into video games yet), but I imagine the effect of people opening their eyes seeing how good the game looks must have been the same as it was with FFX.

Man, the first minutes of FFX are probably the best I've seen in a JRPG.

Got FFIX from the PSN Store. More than 10 hours into it and I'm in Disc 2 already, after all these years this game is still as great as I remember being.

In other words, this was money well spent. :)

I've been wondering if any of you guys consider the Compilation of FFVII it's own thing or you actually see all that compilations of games, movies and what not part of the story of the original game.

Watched Advent Childrenm more than 3 times to understand it, and it wasn't until the "Complete" version that the movie started to make sense... still, I enjoy all the other FFVII stuff that SE has done but they been messing with the story so much that a lot fans don't even know what the story of the game is about at this point.

And after playing FFVII before watching AC I never saw the need for any type of sequel for FFVII since everything makes perfect sense and it ends fine. Then again, that happen with FFX too.

"On January 31st 1997, the seventh (roman numeral) installment of the Final Fantasy series was released in Japan. This old PlayStation title remains one of the biggest video game obsessions of all time, as proven by the still active fanbase."

Source: The Lifestream.net

I am not the appropriate person to make a topic like this since I got into the series around FFX-2 came out by playing first in those days in my PSone FFIX. It wasn't just for curiosity after reading all the rage that FFVII caused in the Internet that I bother my mother to buy me the game. And oh boy, I really wasn't prepared for such a huge experience... I think that even by today standards FFVII is a pretty huge RPG with tons of secrets and little details to enjoy and discover.

That said, is personally not my favorite Final Fantasy but it is without a doubt one of the memorable in the series.

It helps me to appreciate from another angle the music I enjoy and learn something in the process. Many times a review has helped me in enjoying and/or discovering certain things that makes that album that I didn't liked that much in the beginning one of my favorites now.

nvm.

"Why was Front Mission 5: Scars of the War never localized in English by Square Enix Co., Ltd.?

There are a number of reasons why Front Mission 5: Scars of the War was never localized to English by Square Enix Co., Ltd. There is a general belief that the sales of Front Mission 4 in North America is the main cause of this situation. However, this is merely scapegoating rather than pinpointing the real causes behind the game's lack of a localization. Only one main cause can be pinpointed: Square Co., Ltd. and Square Enix Co., Ltd.'s extreme neglect and poor handling of Front Mission outside of Japan.

Please read the following article for more details."
