In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Why Final Fantasy VII is a generic and overated game
Posted on Sunday, June 3 2007 @ 21:24:11 Eastern

   You know what annoys me? The Final Fantasy "geeks". You see their kindof like Goth kids. They say that they are anti-conformists, but they really aren't. The FF geeks claim to be radical fans of FF, but in truth, they aren't. Why? You see when you ask them what's their favorite FF game, all of them would say "Final Fantasy VII". I'm probably one of the 8 people in the world who would say that FF VII is a generic and highly overated game that shows how retarded humans are. One may say "what's so wrong with VII?" simple, it's a downgrade from the previous versions of FF.

   You see, it's gameplay is very kindergarden. The battle system is nothing new, it's very linear, and includes little depth. "what about the materia system ?!", one may ask. You see, the materia system sounds like a good concept, "have characters choose the amount of spells and abilities they can be equipped with depending on the weapons and armor that they are equipped with", but in practice, this is stupid. This is because of the fact that your party doesnt have any distinction from one another, other than their appearence and stats. This wasnt an issue in the previous games in the series that was released in the U.S. Pitiful.

   "but the story and characters are fantastic" another may say. ok, 1. Why should they story change the opinion of mine when i'm talking about the gameplay (I mean, last time i checked, the gameplay was the most important thing about a video game), and 2. the story is decent but the characters arent interesting. I mean, they are pretty much the same characters you would find on a generic teen drama series (well, all of them are generic). Another response that would likely occur is "what about Aeris?". (i should also also mention on how she is having an identity crisis, as people are calling her aerith and/or aeris). SHUT THE FUCK UP ALREADY !!!!

    More intelligent people would ask "why is FFVII the most popular game in the series anyway", simple, to most, VII was the first game that most people were introduced to Final Fantasy, and would hold special memories to one. Another reason is that it had graphics that were very appealing at the time, which would mostly have a huge effect on peoples thoughts on a game. That is why Final Fantasy VII is a very generic and overated game.
