Fact 19: It will never get a remake.
This game is a pure classic, its the only game in gamefaqs that has been in top 100 for more than 5000! days (with FFX being over 4000 days)
"There is a surprisingly offensive line of dialogue between Tifa and Barret if you opt to sneak into the Shinra Building the back way." So offensive that you can't even tell us what it is...? Really...?
Possibly this: Barret Why they gotta build these buildings so damn tall? That Shinra... They're just no damn good. Tifa ......... Barret huff... Man, I'm beat... Marlene, Daddy wanted to see your face one more time... Tifa Would you stop acting like a retard and climb!? It's just a bit more!
What, because they use the word "retard"? Give me a break.
Well it is an English site. Hell, when TMNT came out in the early 90's it was called Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles. Its a bit of a nanny state with vocabulary like that.
dont forget the original english version translation are not very good..maybe refer to japanese version...or maybe that part already being cut out or adjusted or something was quite offensive for people's of 90's
There's not much that was offensive in the 90's, that's not offensive today. People's skin is getting thinner and thinner. It's ridiculously easy to offend someone, these days.
One of my favorite games ever.
is 18 even a significant year? is there any point in this?
They're impatient turds who couldn't wait two years to write a proper memorial.
It's legal now?
FF7 is now of legal age. Expect nude pics and maybe a porn appearance soon. ;)
That airship has long since set sail. ;)
Pretty certain there'll be one of these next year, too.
FF7 can smoke cigarettes now.
17 RONG YEARS AGO
Who made this list? It's full of errors and has no sources... First of all, Leo, from ff VI is the first prominent black character in a Final Fantasy game. http://img1.wikia.nocookie.... His sprite didn't look that way, but it was very clear from the portrait and from Amano's art... http://lparchive.org/Breaki...
Wouldn't get too worked up about it. The Metro is a free newspaper they hand out at train stations in the UK. It's a light read that has tabloid elements to it.
Ah. That explains a lot!
Leo is clearly white.
maybe they mean 'playable' characters
I say we get the remarke announcement in two years... and the game in 7...
How about the fact you never actually fight Sephiroth? The final battle takes place in Cloud's mind. The other battles are just Jenova manipulating forms of Sephiroth that the player battles.
Wrong.The Sephiroth you fought after Jenova synthesis is the actual Sephiroth. The only battle which took place in Cloud's mind was the one with the shirtless Sephiroth, just after defeating two of his forms. And one more thing, it was Sephiroth who was manipulating Jenova, not the other way around.
The true Sephiroth is in the Mako. His true body never leaves that. All battles are Jenova cells being manipulated by Sephiroth, as you said. The player never fights the actual physical form of him.
Bizarro and Safer Sephiroth are not made out of Jenova's cells since the Jenova you fight prior to those battles is composed of her remaining cells. You get to fight the actual Sephiroth afterwards in his evolved forms.
It truly is the sign of a great game when you can discuss it's story even after 18 years
That was a great year after I finished FF7 then played FF8 Xenogears and Chrono Cross man Squaresoft made great games back then.
Nothing beats the period between 1997 & 2000 for me, during those 3 years we got the best JRPGs of all time, I'm talking for: 1. FFVII 2. Xenogears 3. Suikoden II 4. Chrono Cross 5. Legend of Dragoon 6. Breath of Fire III 7. Parasite Eve 8. Tactics Ogre 9. FFVIII 10. FFIX & the list goes one, PSX was truly the best console for JRPG fans ever, nothing gets even close to the quality & quantity of JRPGs we got back then.
I can't believe that it's been 18 years since I received this, Crash Bandicoot Warped, and a PS1 for Christmas. Those were the days.
if FF15 doesnt bring back that great feeling of playing a jrpg, i will give up all hope for FF all together
some more fact i remembers: -sephiroth originally was to be aeris brothers...see the hair resemblence -a large percent of original ideas for ffvii being pulled for chrono cross -aeris death was last minuted decision involving conversation in phone between developers(dont remember between who and was) -aeris death was to avoid usually unrealistic hollywood style dramatic death...nomura is frustrated with these,and tried to approach with realistic situation in real life -there posters around town for yuffie with different face and originally player need to find him and 'the yuffie' we will get based on the which one poster we choose either different face or gender together
Final Fantasy X might've been my entrance to the series, but Final Fantasy VII will forever claim my heart – well, if not for IX, that is.
