Default Re: Final Fantasy VII

Actually, I've just gotten my PlayStation CDs back out now, and some curious trends are emerging.

Final Fantasy VI: Not in too bad of a state, might have a go with it.
Final Fantasy XI: Some scratches, but works OK.
Ridge Racer Type 4: Disc is in pretty bad shape, probably not much left it it.
Resident Evil 3: Will not boot, too much damage.
Final Fantasy VII: Abandon all hope ye who insert disc here.
Final Fantasy VIII: Mint condition.

Bear in mind that all of the Final Fantasy games listed are second-hand games too. I don't think even Hironobu Sakaguchi could love FF8...

> A) Worth it?

DEFINITELY...I've beat this game over a dozen times. It had gotten to the point that after beating and doing everything including both Ultimate Weapons, I took to beating the weapons without KOTR/W-Summon/Mime, and fighting them physically only, and playing the entire game without materia, or sticking with the origional party. I know...I'm a sick individual that had waaaaay too much time on my hands. The last time I beat it however, was in 2001.

> B) Going to take a million hours to gain experience?

Not if you're just interested in beating the game. I've done a run through without extras in about 43 hours.

> C) Fun, considering the many strides they've taken in gaming
> the last ten years?

Insanely...if you take 40 or 140 hours, it'll keep bringing you back for more...the replay value is never ending, and is always entertaining.

What makes this game better than X is the fact that you are pretty much free to do what you want when you want after you leave Midgar. In X, you were pretty much constrained to what you could do or where you could go until the very end, and even then, there really wasn't much point to it, unless you're mini-game/quest happy. (Capturing 10 of every monster, dodging 200 lightning bolts, getting every ultimate weapon pimped out and defeating all the Arena monsters...yeah, it was a pain in the ass, but I did it, b/c I'm insane like that).

VII is a much darker and "adult" oriented in content. X was directed more to the lower teen audience b/c it was the first on the new platform and was to be more wide reaching. VII was as well, but has much more detailed of a plot and sub-plot structure.

IMHO, definietly worth your time, and if you're a FF fan, a MUST!

I'm in this boat, though it isn't because I didn't like the game. I just got distracted by something else, probably a Castlevania game. :P I then never got back into it...I wasn't that far in, I think that it was just after you 'meet' Sephy for the first time, really. On the boat.

I gotta play it, it's one of those games I've always felt I needed to play.

You know I'm kind of like both of you except, I was saved before the temple of ancients and Aeris' death so I could level some crap up before she went bye-bye. But really it wasn't the problem of not liking it or anything, it had more to do with the I had the PC version and for some reason I get drawn away from PC-gaming far more than other types. I definatly would have finished it if I had the console version.

It doesn't help too much when the PC version had crash bugs.

Well I only ever crashed for me if I hadn't restarted. My computer is/was in line with the intended moddels for the game. As such I never expeiranced the Cosmo Canyon bug, the Chocobo Racing bug, or the Battle Swirl bug just to name a few.
