(Saddest Final Fantasy Moments (spoiler alert)
Hate it when spoilers are right in the title. yeah we all know the truth, but there are still quite a few gamers that never played the game.

When I played VII for the first time in 2012, I already knew of the character's demise. However, it happened so suddenly that I was still taken aback by it.
Good lord does that game earn it's reputation.

stfu FFVII came out 20 YEARS AGO and aerith's death is one of the most iconic in all of gaming
it's past the point of spoiler alerts now my dude

And some gamers were born 15 years ago and never even played a Final Fantasy, your point? With FFVIIR right around the corner, this will be many gamers first foray into a FF, why ruin it for them?

consolez_FTW292d ago (Edited 292d ago )

if a someone born 15 years ago is a gamer and still hasn't played a FF title my guess they probably don't care enough to throw a fit over finding out a character named Aerith died in a game that relased in 1997..your point?

Asuka292d ago (Edited 292d ago )


Yeah but the game is still 2 decades old regardless. Its pretty much known nowadays and is part of our culture. Kinda like how Darth vader is Luke's dad.

I mean at some point you cannot complain about spoilers, and i think 20 years is pretty fair.

To your point about some people being born 15 years ago. Well people are born everyday... and does that mean we should put off spoilers indefinitely? If not 20 years, then when?

OmnislashVer36292d ago (Edited 292d ago )

I think we should take it upon ourselves not to spoil it for new fans. FF in particular has been losing popularity with only a recent resurgence, meaning many do not know about FFVII and will want to play the remake either from word of mouth by friends or after seeing gameplay and trailers. And Star Wars has a much, much bigger following than FF, even if you were to do Star Wars watchers per capita versus FFVII players per gamer population.

Secondly, what is even the point of putting it in the title? It's just not needed.

Spoilers - Germany lost World War 1
Spoilers - And World War 2
Spoilers - The United States won their Independence
Spoilers - Slavery was made illegal
Spoilers - This list contained spoilers of events that occurred before any of us were born. Therefore they are still spoilers.

You know there's been a lot more deaths in Final Fantasy before Aerith even hit the scene

My saddest moment in Final Fantasy is when they stopped making good ones

Derceto292d ago

FF X's ending likely is my favourite "sad" moment. What an awful end to a long, long road.

Pretty sure everyone figured it out before it was revealed, but even knowing, that ending was rather well done in terms of presentation. When Yuna falls through Tidus, definitely one of the sadder moments of the series imo.

OmnislashVer36292d ago

Definitely. I still don't know why they made FFX-2 when the ending to X was so perfect.

Name Last Name292d ago

I spent like 20 minutes contemplating life after the credits rolled.

MatthewFace292d ago

Pretty daft having one of the biggest spoilers in the entire series in your headline, dude. Believe it or not, people are still experiencing the game for the first time; you can buy and play it on PS4.

Turkz7292d ago (Edited 292d ago )

Putting spoilers in the title will cause an uproar more than discussing your article. * SPOILER ALERT * would have been nice

Asuka292d ago

Nice edit. Still reported btw ;)
