10 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Final Fantasy VII

Ever since its release in 1997, the first of the Playstation Final Fantasy games is equally considered one of the best role-playing game ever made, or a completely overrated piece of crap that hogs the spotlight from more worthy entries. There's not a lot of middle ground among gamers.

Regardless, such an iconic title, whether beloved or denounced, has been thoroughly dissected for 16 straight years. How can there possibly be anything left even in such a comparatively massive game for the time that remains hidden.

Well, there are a few little odd corners. (Culture, Final Fantasy VII, Retro)

You were right. I'm slow @_@

Great work! I approve ;-)

The one about the cow level doesn't apply as it was added to the game last year for the SECOND PC port. The blog is incorrect when it states that the game was "finally" ported to PC as there was already a PC version of the game before the Steam re-release.

It also says Aeris' death was the first permanent death of a main character... which is wrong. Even reviving dead characters. When did that happen outside of battles in Final Fantasy?
**CLASSIC FF SPOILERS**

IV: Tellah
V: Galuf
And I haven't gotten that far in it but I saw someone play II and I'm pretty sure more than one playable characters die (Enough to make up a whole party)

**/SPOILERS**

I won't deny that her death was an iconic moment though but it's not a series first ;p

Don't forget General Leo in VI, he's 'playable' in the sense that you play as him as he dies...
One_Eyed_Wizard  +   220d ago
You're right I completely forgot about General Leo. I used to love that Shock attack he did.

As a FFVII fan I knew all of them. I would think that any FFVII fan would. Yes, we believe it was the best of the series.

However... some of those things you mentioned are not facts, and some others are actually additions added YEARS after the it was originally released. I only say this because, well, tella VII fan that VIII was better and watch the lightning strike. State a false fact... same thing.

Another fact.. Tifa Lockhart has large pair of.............. Gloves, yeah!

I do remember reading somewhere on the web back in the late 90s that Aerith was, in fact supposed to be resurrected. But because demand for the game, at the time, was so great, that Squaresoft rushed development of the game to meet consumer demand and tied off that part of the game. I guess most people didn't realise that she was supposed to be brought back to life. It's too bad we'll never see the game end the way the developers had originally intended. :)
