I have never played Final Fantasy VII. I KNOW. I hope you don't think any less of me.

I played through most of FF7 but didn't finish it. I remember getting up to 'that' moment (gamer nerds know what I'm talking about) but I don't think I went much past that.

FF7 was ground-breaking for sure but I've always thought FF8 was a far better game. I DID finish that one and it's just an amazing piece of work.

It's okay. I got past the second disc and said, "If this is what it takes to validate my gamer 'cred,' then I'm just going to find something better that will."

I mean, I can understand why some gamers think that not having played/enjoyed/bothered with FFVII is like being a Christian but somehow not believing in Jesus. But, why let the rest of the gaming community dictate what makes you a gamer? Just enjoy what you have and what you play, and if you absolutely feel compelled to play a game just because everyone else says so, then at least do it on your own time.

That said, if you never got past the Great Deku Tree in Ocarina of Time, then GTFO!!!!!!!!!

Best comment ever. :D

Oh, I don't worry much about gamer cred, as I'll probably never have any no matter what I do. I just play what I like, basically, but I do look to other people for recommendations, and there's definitely a list of "classic" games out there that'd I'd like to dig into. FFVII is on it- whether I like it or not, who knows? I'm woefully underschooled in Final Fantasy and Metroid, and I'd like to go about remedying that somehow!

APRIL FOOLS! You almost pulled a fast one on me! ALso, I personally prefer these incredibly subtle April fool's jokes to the more obvious ones.

I did beat this one, but I prefer Final Fantasy 2 & 3 (the US SNES ones). So, did FF VII come after FF3 (again, US version)? It confounds me frankly.

FFII SNES is maybe my fave game of all time, because it actually had some difficulty to it when compared to the later ones, and I think the story was better, and it lacked any needless gimmicks. It kind of blew my 12 year old mind that you end up on the moon at one point.

While I never FINISHED FFVII, I still thinkg FFX is the superior game. I know that I'm in the minority, but there are a few of us out there!
