From the article: "Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII is a phenomenal game, but it is really more than that. It provides educational information about the culture and lives of people living around Midgar. There are profound truths revealed to those who take the time and effort to explore environments and become acquainted with the population.

Also, before anyone asks, I can hear you thinking, "But why eight? Why not narrow it down to five, or expand it to ten?" Well, I'm 7/10ths of the way through the game.

So here, in no particular order, are eight things I've learned from Crisis Core."
