What's Up With All The Capital Letters At The Start Of each word?
Anyway, I love how they play the overworld themes of the respective games when a character is on the story-board. Though I wish they'd kept the classic "Victory tune!"
Force of Habit
(This is in response to everyone asking why people just don't like FFVII anymore, not one specific response or another)
WARNING: Anti-FFVII Rant follows. Please do not read unless you either also do not like FFVII, do not care about FFVII, or you can respect someone's opinions. Note that I do not bash the fans in the following rant, so rest assured!
! I will admit that FFVII was decent, but here's the deal. Take away it's advances in graphical and musical quality for just a second, the storyline just wasn't that great in comparison. Most of FFVII's hype started out with it's enhancement in graphics and music over the past Final Fantasies. That hype was further proceeded by a villain they supposedly thought whose personality and appearance was 'unique'. That was an illusion. His personality was pretty much a rehash of Kefka, just adding in emo tendencies and mommy issues. His appearance was a rehash of Setzer, just with less flash and more black to them. Everyone thought his 'One Winged Angel' form was badass and also unique. Kefka's god form did it first and did it better, sorry to say.
! The Storyline of FFVII, as I have said, isn't all that great. You start out as a former soldier for an electric company (In FFVI, you were a former soldier of an Empire) who seeks to stop said electric company from seizing control of a power source (Empire taking control of Espers from FFVI…? anyone?) Along the road, the main character has a flashback to a person who had a very high rank in the electric company's military (Terra had a flashback which had Kefka in it about as early on... yeah...) Throughout the story, they gain a colorful cast of characters including an airship pilot with a very large ego (Setzer...?), another fellow traitor from the same electric company (Celes...?), a ninja (Shadow...?), a talking animal from the mountains (That qualifies as either Mog OR Umaro), a person whose past is shrouded in mystery (Gogo or Shadow, take your pick). Along the way, they find that the president of said electric company has been struck down by said antagonist (Emperor Gestahl was killed by Kefka)...
! I need not go on. But can you see my point, with the exception of a few specifics, a number of changes to the cast to make them seem more unique, the entire story of FFVII is so much like FFVI, it's not even funny. There are only two differences that make FFVI better. First, Kefka actually attained godhood. Second, FFVI's storyline was written first. Also, the writing quality of Advent Children seemed more fanservicey than anything I could really say was good. Do you guys want more Final Fantasy VII? Sure, we can do that! Want more Angsty Cloud scenes? Fantastic! We got just the thing for you! Want Aeris/Zack/Sephiroth to make an appearance in the movie? We can do that! We can even throw in a Cloud vs. Sephiroth scene for you just for kicks!
Now you can keep a hold of your liking for Final Fantasy VII in any form that you've played it in, be it Playstation 1, PC, even one of the many spinoffs on DVD, PS2, and/or PSP… I won't hold such things against you personally because I don't enjoy doing so. However, I think I'll hold onto my Final Fantasy VI and I believe I adequately explained why above, thank you.
I Completely Agree &
The Whole Compilation of Final Fantasy VII Bullshit Pisses Me Off
