Well that certinly was different from any other review I read about the game. Interesting viewpoint. Well writen too. But I never thought the game was a 10.

This site tends to be quite easy on RPG's it seems. At least based on my very minimal time here. FFVII is actually my fave game of all time (FFVI comes close), so I won't dispute the score (not that it even matters one iota), however, I have to agree that the written article is all over the place and lacking in substance. It veers on tabloid or teen mag esque at times. Emo? I mean...really? In any case, for a game as rich as FFVII, more effort and time could have been given to the review. Would have preferred something much more meaty, a modern day in-depth analysis of a riveting but still not ancient (as far as gaming history is concerned) classic.

I mean, you're welcome to write one. I personally would find such a thing pretty boring and I think maybe 5 people in the world would be bothered to read it.

Note that this comes from the man who wrote this so I have some experience in the matter.

Lol wolfqueen, charming.

Also Zipp, I think I'll give it a miss. I waste far too much spare time procrastinating on numerous forums to find additional time for such reviews. Also I fear if I did, Zig would have me for breakfast with wolf biting away at my duck lol.

Actually, Zig is one of the fairest and most honest people I know. I doubt he would take the opportunity to childishly "get back at you" for your comments about UC2. And as long as you don't change your name to something like "huge raping penis," WQ probably won't bite you, either.

In any case, if you do get in the mood to write a review, please do so. We're all about differing opinions here on HG (except EmP).

Wait, you gave Persona 3 an 8 , but FF VII a 10 ? Different opinion is one thing, wrong opinion is another.

Hey, I'm all about differing opinions. Just so long as people are aware that if they don't coincide with mine they're silly, childish fantasy.


For us. For them. For you.

-_- I really wasn't talking about MHG with that remark. I really hate these vulgar usernames and refuse to type them if possible. Why there isn't some sort of restriction there is beyond me. It's really quite pointless to make your name something disgusting, not to mention just wrong and repulsive.

I'm not sure I ever actually wrote a review for Persona 3. I'll tell you this much, I've played FF7 five or six times all the way through since its release. I played Persona 3 once and never will again.

What can I say? I like big manly swords. I wouldn't expect you to agree with me. After all, I also like sleeping with transgenders and walks in the rain. I particularly enjoy sleeping with transgenders in the rain.

I'm with Zipp on this one. Exactly the same scenario as well, played through FFVII at least 5-6 times since release and will likely play again in future. Played through Persona 3 once, and have no drive to play through it again, though admittedly I did love the experience whilst I was having it.

FFVII was good if for anything then because it brought the jrpg experience in mainstream to the western audience. Yes, some people played jrpgs before(though that number is largely fictional, and why people make up to prove they are "hardcore" to have played something before FFVII from the genre is beyond me), but for most it was the entry into the world of jrpgs.

Me, my first jrpgs was Knights of Xentar and it was awesome.

My first JRPGs were Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior II and I loved them immensely. I promise that I'm not making that up to appear hardcore.

It's hard to believe that I've essentially been playing and loving JRPGs for just a hair under 20 years. It was the perfect time to start, I guess. I was old enough to understand what was happening in the games, old enough to enjoy solving the puzzles and wandering fantastic wastelands, old enough to catch great franchises in their infancy and to grow up along with them. I feel kind of sorry for people who started with FFVII and don't appreciate how good a real JRPG can be.

Actually Zipp, Jason still has you beat because Dragon Warrior One sucked.

I played it when it was new and was all like, "what is this primitive jibber-jabber? Gimme a man's RPG!"

It's an interesting point, Jason. Not about FF7, but about how young we were when we started playing RPGS! Honestly, I didn't play much of Dragon Warrior and Final Fantasy. I didn't get it. The first RPG I really took seriously was FF4 (released in the states on the SNES as FF2). I still didn't understand EXP, but I knew the Meteor Spell rocked. I also got freaked out by random battles and used to have panic attacks wandering through dungeons.

So, yeah, maybe I didn't get the mechanics. But you know what I totally understood? The story. I understood Cecil's feelings for Rosa. I got Edge's flirtatious motions towards Rydia (I liked her, too). I understood the sorrow in Cecil when he SPOILER! realized his enemy was his brother. I got enraged when Kain betrayed us for the umpteenth time.

It was the first time I felt that video games could be art.

How many NES games actually have a cameo with Nester from Howard and Nester? That alone makes it at least worth playing.

By the way, I did purposely name drop Howard and Nester to sound oldskool hardcore. I'll admit it. I'm still an NES junkie.
