Final Fantasy 7


The most beloved game i own. I played it for like 120 hours to explore the whole world, find secrets and hidden story elements.

It was released 1997 and was the first Final Fantasy using 3D graphics. Although the graphics were awesome this time, it wasn't the reason for its great success. The plot does all the work, not only because of many twists in it.

A few infos to the story:

Cloud Strife, ex-member of SOLDIER (the fighting force of Shinra) is now a mercenary and works for AVALANCHE (an organisation to damage Shinra). AVALANCHE tries to sabotage some reactors of Shinra and partially succeed with that plan. As the story progresses, another evil force is presented. It's Sephiroth himself, a first class SOLDIER, who also dedicates himself to destroy Shinra and also the planet.

Cloud has to face his strongest enemy and himself, disbeliefing who he really is.

Final Fantasy 7 is now obtainable through PSN for the PS3 and PSP. On the PS3 the graphics may be a little brutal, but on the PSP it is nice to play. Give it a try!

  21. Man, I remember playing this back in the day. One of the greatest games for PS1, IMO. But age hasn't been kind to it, and nowadays it's pretty clunky to play, and hasn't held up in comparison to FF9... The game more or less needs to be remade, similar to its predecessors ala the 3D Nintendo DS remakes.

  22. I could never finish off the weapons... classic game though. Thanks for the nostalgia.

  23. Everyone here who likes FFVII, CHECK OUT CHRONO TRIGGER, and XENOGEARS. They're both on equal footing, if not better games. FFVII was a hit because it had better cutscene graphics, but I really don't know how well the stoyline had held up over time...Chrono Trigger, on the other hand, will be golden for years.
