Pop-break: "When I first began this column way back in April 2013, I knew that eventually I would write a post about my all-time favorite game. I wasn’t exactly in a rush to do it, to be honest. The entire purpose of this column is to connect the game/series/franchise in focus to a bit of news that connects with it. Fortunately I’ve been able to follow this method on a weekly basis ever since and have never needed to write something up for the sake of content. This meant that I’ve had my personal top game on the back burner since the beginning, willing to dish it out if necessary but ideally keeping it back until it’s actually relevant. The ideal situation was a guarantee too, because if there’s one game that will never leave the public consciousness, it’s Final Fantasy VII."
