Final Fantasy VII

well i downloaded it off PSN yesterday and played it for about 2 hours(ive never played it before) and im not seeing what the big hype is about it.

does it get a lot better as i go on? or is it all pretty much the same as the beginning?

It is only the best RPG ever made!! IMO that is. But the first time i played it i hated it to death. It was when it first came out. Played it a few months later because i was bored and man i got hooked. It picks up after you leave Midgard. I'm gonna DL it tonight maybe and start playing it again.

Don't talk about it! Be about it!

You also have to realize when it was made...back in 2000 or whenever it was cutting edge. You stack it up next to ps2/ps3 games now with the way they look/control and it's no contest. But as far as storyline and the game dragging you in it is top notch.

yeah when i started to play it i thought my controller was broken cuz the stick doesnt work.. then i realized the psone didnt have the sticks.

i think ill try to stick it out- cuz everything everyone says is that its one of the best, if not the best rpg ever made...

But damn, i still love it. I still have ff7, ff8, ff9 for ps1. Love the games. Every now and then i'll feel like picking them up and seeing if i can get back into them.


Shit, now i've got to do that tonight. Thanks ass hats.

Storywise, yes, it's the best rpg IMO. The depth it goes into with the characters is great. I think the gameplay in FF8 is probably better, and the story is almost as good but not quite. Once you leave midgar and get into the history between cloud and sephiroth it gets really good.

I think they called it a gunblade in the game. The main characters name was Squall.

Yeah FF VII was the absolute best RPG I ever played. First time I played it I got about 10 hours in and my computer crashed so after getting a new HD I didnt play it till about a year later cause I was bored and I was hooked! Story line is what did it for me I think, graphics are deffinetly outdated by todays standards.

Speaking of which FF13 and FF14 are looking to be pretty damn awesome. Also unlocking everything in FF7 is insane. It took me FOREVER to learn how to be Ruby and Emerald Wpn. I actually had to look it up and once i read it i was like wtf i'm a dumbass then kicked their asses. And Knights of the Round is by far the best summon ever.

Don't talk about it! Be about it!

ya, you know what takes forever is mastering knights of the round. I know I have over 100 hrs on one file just mastering the summons lol. It was worth it once I got to sephiroth, it wasnt even a fight just used KOTR and mimic right after... Done!

When mastering materia just put the ones you want to master in a weapon that triples your Ability Points like Clouds apocolypse sword then head down into the north cave and fight magic pots. They're worth like 1000 or 10000 ap each. Cant remember which.

Sephiroth is nothing compared to the big weapons you can fight. Trick is to use W-summon, and HP absorp paired with KOTR so you summon it twice and get 9000+hp each, then mimic with everybody.

The first time i played i didn't read the materia growth info about double/triple/none. Some of the best linked wpns have no growth on them and jacked my first game through. But there after i raped everything.

Don't talk about it! Be about it!

I got all of the Eskills. I even went so far as to collect all 1/32 soldiers, I think I actually got 33 only to realize that it's a bullshit item that does nothing. I think my fastest chocobo was like 190kph or something nuts like that. I swear I have 400+hrs of my life invested into that game.
