An Honest Final Fantasy VII Game Trailer [ VIDEO ]

Pretty damn accurate Final Fantasy VII video game trailer. Though I do think that Egoraptor nicely summed up Final Fantasy VII in his Awesome Fantasy VII parody video.

Still, as a huge fan of anime, I can honestly say that there is not a more accurate line in that entire video than:

“Barrett, who’s what Japanese people think black people are like.”

    I don’t really think the Aeris death scene was a retread of previous ones…
    Minwu knowingly sacrificed himself and (I don’t remember perfectly) the surprise was that he didn’t tell his allies he was doing that.
    Tella stupidly and pointlessly sacrificed himself, spawning more derision than anything.
    Galuf’s death scene was so stupidly incredibly awesome it’s difficult to find it anything but triumphant (and it had no gameplay effects.)
    Shadow’s… death? Was not a thing that happened to me.
    Aeris was the most tragic because you really felt the loss and the character lacked agency in it. The others sacrificed themselves, Aeris got OFFED…

    Not that I am particularly a fan of it, VII doesn’t break my top 3 Final Fantasies, it just seems questionable to marginalize the significance of that scene to the series.

    Those who played the FF games before FFVII, probably liked the previous ones much better. My top 3 would be FF1, FFVI then FFIV.

    I find that the majority of the time the first FF you play in the series is your favorite. This is the case for me, the first I played was FFVI as FFIII on the SNES and loved it. I kept renting it from our local video store and thought I had it beat when I was on the floating island only to get my own copy for Christmas get back to the island and then find I was only halfway through the game. I’ve let shadow die only once in my play throughs. I have waited for him every time in the others.

    I agree with Z2, the death of Aeris was straight out unexpected murder of a character I felt attached to, even though I had 99 phoenix downs on me at the time, and the rest of the animation of her dropping the materia and the music made the experience much more felt than the other deaths.. Fun story, as I had just got to that part, my mom and grandma had come into the room to watch what I was playing just as she got stabbed, I’m almost in tears and my mom says in a huffy voice “Oh that’s nice.” She thought she had gotten me a game of burny burny cut cut because she didn’t know the rest of the story to go along with it.
