Wow, that's actually a pretty impressive analysis. But holy crap, now every time I see Aeris' death scene I'll be thinking about this video. :O

iamtehpwn2475d ago

really? I stopped watching because the way the guy talk annoyed the living hell out of me. LOL

Pozzle2475d ago (Edited 2475d ago )

He pretty much comes to the conclusion that there's no way Aeris was killed by the sword stab and she probably died via drowning in the lake because Cloud didn't check for a pulse. lol

But then, I know nothing about anatomy so I have no idea if his facts are true or not. :O

After playing CC, it's obviously that she deserved it ;/

I just remember being relieved that I didn't waste my time building her up and looking for her weapons/skills.

I don't know if it makes me a bad person, but I literally felt nothing after she died. I used Tifa for all the magic stuff anyway crossed my mind

Pozzle2475d ago (Edited 2475d ago )

I felt a bit sad when she died (mostly because she was my primary healer), but it was the Jenova battle afterwards (where Aeris' theme song was playing) that was more emotional for me. I can't even explain why.

The thing is, I was quite young when I was playing Final Fantasy VII for the first time. When Aerith died it was quite sudden and shocking but I got over it almost immediately lol (perhaps because I was young like that).

However, when I was playing Crisis Core, even though I knew Zack would die at the end, his death was still pretty emotional.

I currently think Zack's death is more emotional than Aerith's death, who agrees?! :D

ff7 is my favorite game of all time but this scene didnt really do much to me emotionally.
