Final Fantasy VII Playthrough

I really got into the Final Fantasy bandwagon with VIII. While I have actually played through VII once and vaguely remember it, many of the details are fuzzy, and I recall being extremely confused by the whole Cloud-Sephiroth backstory (clone, puppet, wha?)  Also, I didn't entirely grasp where I was or what I was looking at the first time through most of Midgar, since I was playing with a lousy TV or a confused Mac Molar trying desperately to emulate a PS1.  Now, armed with a PS3, good speakers, and a screen I can see, I'm trying it again.

So yeah. I don't know if I'll get through it, but for the moment I have joined in the group playthrough here in ff7_oldschool .

I've always been fond of VII, but it's never been THE GAME the way some other games (RIVEN, FFX) are for me.

I'M SO HAPPY YOU'RE JOINING IN!

Even if you can't play along, check out let's plays or just join in the conversation with all of us as time goes on.

I WILL EXPLAIN THE CLONE THING LATER.

GOOD.

I ALMOST FIGURED IT OUT
except really not quite.

I will say that my ignorance spares me from all the grief of the Cloud/Aerith Cloud/Tifa teeth-gnashing, except that I have a bad habit of sticking with "Aeris" since that's what the game said.

FF7 is our FAVORITE. Except for FF9, which is REALLY our favorite.

I need to play IX again and get why. I still feel vaguely embarrassed that it wasn't mine.

I like bits and pieces of it very much, but it didn't grab me the way the more angstbucket ones do. I think I have a sweet tooth for bad angst and melodrama. (No, reaaaaally?)

I liked the beginning of VII a lot, basically the whole first disc, and especially the entire portion in Midgar. But after Aerith dies, I kind of lose interest.

FFX will always be my Number 1.

FFX was the 1st console game I ever played and it hooked me hard. It was like 'the 1st taste is free', as a chum loaned me the game and a PS2 to try it out. Wandered through the start and after getting to Besaid, I lost it completely, went out and BOUGHT a PS2 & FFX because no -way- would someone get it away from me. ^_^

Shortly after this I learned about FF7. It wouldn't play on my PS2; sighs. But I was about to find a really cheap PS1 and was hooked on it, too.

IMO, FFX is -still- the prettiest game I've ever played - but FF7 has the best plot & story, hands down.

Didn't know about that community! So, yeah, I'm totally in. :-) Granted, I belong to the hoary old school of people who started at FF1 in 1990, but I still have a soft spot for FF7 as it was back in the day.
