Definitely don’t start your Final Fantasy VII experience with Rebirth

Start at the beginning.

Well that's how it should be, but too many now buy sequels rather than starting at the beginning. That's why more sequels now have no mention of the previous game.

SDuck47d ago

I already used to do that back in the day. Bought both God of War 2 and FFXIII-2 without knowing anything about their prequels

typically if theres a 2 or a -2... there's source material...

jeromeface47d ago

Too many people need to be told this anymore... it really blows my mind.

GoodGuy0947d ago

Square didn't name it Remake 2 to maximize sales anyways lol

jznrpg47d ago

Yes play the first game it’s really good

The first game was so bad i couldn't finish it. Endless fetching, nonsense additions, etc. Cool visualization of Midgar, but it's all filler.

"Endless fetching" - Don't do the side quests then, they do kind of suck.
"nonsense additions" - Most of the additions are actually very welcome to some parts that NEEDED fleshing out.
"it's all filler" - That isn't even the least bit true...

There were some lacking moments in Remake, and some odd choices at times I'll give you that. Trying to say the game was "bad" though is very far off the mark. It's a fantastic game.

RonnySins47d ago

Bad my a**. As for the fetching quests, don't do them. Simple.

NukeDaHippies47d ago

absolutely true. i coulda still accepted the less desirable stuff if the story didn't shit the bed in the last hour

Rebel_Scum47d ago

Yeah hard disagree on this. If you skip remake you wont miss out on anything. The story truly kicks off when you leave Midgar.

Snookies1247d ago

The heck do you mean? You will miss out on EVERYTHING if you skipped Remake, lol. Who the hell goes into a story driven series without playing the first part of it? There's absolutely no point in jumping on mid-way through something like that. You'd have no context for any characters or their relationships, nor their goals or plot of the series as a whole.

Rebel_Scum47d ago

Just watch the story catch up video in Rebirth. Remake just wasnt a good game.

To anyone new to FFVII I’d suggest the play the original then rebirth.

hard disagree, midgar sets the plate for the rest of the the story

Rebel_Scum46d ago

Nothing that the “story so far” video in Rebirth can’t fix.

Original Final Fantasy 7 - Is it Worth Playing in 2024?

Final Fantasy 7 has come back under the spotlight thanks to the release of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, but is it worth replaying the original?
