The original Final Fantasy VII might seem a bit dated, but playing it is key to understanding its hype and the story of its sequels and remake.
Nope I won’t.
Yes I will.
Still have the entire story etched into my mind, lm good ^ ^
same haha i play the og every year
I could probably stand to try it again. My first FF was 8 (fluke, friend got it as a gift & gave it to me since he didn't like RPGs). I missed 9, and then played X and practically every version since.
I tried to go back to 7 & 9 in the PS2 era, but had a hard time getting into them. I still can play a decent chunk of 8, but I never tend to past maybe halfway. Pretty sure nostalgia is doing the heavy lifting there. But, as sacrilegious as it is, I still just can't get into 7 (or 9). I've gone back and played FFXII plenty of times, no problem, but I do struggle going back to PS1 for *some* RPGs (plenty of other retro stuff I go back for).
Think that's also why I didn't have any issues with FFVII Remake. I didn't have that nostalgia & feeling of ownership over a part of my youth that was being twisted or tainted. I'd be curious as to how I'd feel if *somehow* the same treatment was ever given to FF8.
Nope. It was a masterpiece at the time, now its clunky and hard to deal with. The story was excellent, almost as good as VI, but not worth the pain of playing the original to catch every little detail.
to each their own i guess.
i still love it. i dont find it clunky at all.
I still find it more entertaining and engrossing than some modern games, I've even gone back to play Xenogears on the PS3 and having a good time with it.
I'm currently playing it right now on my phone whilst I'm visiting in India. It's still a sick game!
Tbh I'm skipping all the story/dialogue...I'm more interested in getting great weapons/accessories via stealing and collecting enemy skills, i never bothered with them back in the day
I’ve played it a few times already . I will play it again sometime but probably after the next game . I also want to go back and play 8/9/10
FF8 is good FF9 not my favorite but it is also good and pretty popular with fans has a retro FF vibe to it. And FF10 I thought was good it's one of my favorites and if you can try Xenogears, Chrono Cross and Parasite Eve.
Play it how you want to play it. If you choose to go FF7 first then go Crisis Core all you are doing is playing a story as Zack that leads up to Cloud and FF7. I am just curious if Square might release Dirge of Cerberus since they seem to be in a FF7 mood.
It's pretty much vital when you consider FF7R is a sequel and not a remake, the original game should be played for context if SE keeps going in the direction that part 1 of FF7R was heading in.
