Ah, Final Fantasy VII the game that brought the series in to the mainstream… I also want to note that VII is my third favorite of the collection as well (VI is my favorite with X as a close second, though I acknowledge that X is the best overall game). The thing about VII that always bothered me, besides that “Knights of the Round Table” made it too damn easy, was that I didn’t care about Aerith. I always wanted Cloud to hook up with Tifa, so when Aerith died I thought “Good. No more competition.”
I know she was a main character and at the time it happened, stuff like main characters killing off just didn’t… but I wasn’t that choked up.
Boo Aerith! Long live Big Titty Tifa!
