Somebody I know told me that Cloud's girlfriend was Aerith, although I doubt that. Does anyone know who it is? I dont want to start any trouble. I'm not a big fan of the Final Fantasy series, but can somebody answer this for me?

Edit: I should have been more clearer, I didnt sound like I was. I should have asked who is clouds girlfriend.

  • What pissed me off the most about Advent Children bar the poor story, was honestly Cloud himself. What happened to the character development in FF7 which made him a better person? It seemed like it had been chucked straight out of the window.

    0. Oh wait. 1. The demo of FF7 on the PC. I was not impressed.

    The thing that bothered me most about AC is how incomprehensible it was even to people who actually finished the game. The first time I watched it, the whole time I had no idea what was actually going on. Just like the game, without reading any materials from the limited edition, you'll be easily lost.

    The PC demo was my first experience with not only a Final Fantasy game but with a role-playing game in general. Like yourself; I was unimpressed with what I played. A couple of months later I went into HMV to buy a new game. I picked up a copy of Unreal and took it to the counter. The sales assistant enquired what gaming rig I possessed, I told him my PC's specs and he informed me that they weren't up to scratch for Unreal.

    I took the game back to the shelf and tried to locate another game to purchase. I really couldn't find anything to buy but I was determined to buy something and that's when serendipity kicked in; for some reason I bought a copy of Final Fantasy VII. From the moment I started playing through to the emotionally charged finale; I was hooked. It was and still is one of my happiest gaming memories.

    In short; the Final Fantasy VII PC demo is not indicative of the actual game. Part of what makes Final Fantasy VII such a great game is it's interesting (if highly convoluted) storyline and it's charming characters, which are aspects that the demo completely failed to convey.

    It would be such a shame to miss out on one of the greatest games ever made due to one of the worst demos ever made. I strongly recommend picking up a cheap copy of the full game and seeing if you enjoy it.

    All I had to do to play it is get the old PS1 of my cousin and his copy of the game. But I don't think I can play his german PS1-version in English.

  • Time for me to chime in...not out of any real reason, just felt like dropping in here. :D

    I didn't get into Final Fantasy VII until a few years after it was out. My copy of the game was used, but I didn't think much of that fact at the time. I was too used to my cartridge games working solidly. Anyways, made it through the whole game, got up to the final boss battles without maxing levels, without Omnislash or any other final limit breaks, and no Knights of the Round. JENOVA Death? Not hard. Bizarro Sephiroth? Difficult. Safer Sephiroth? HOLY CRAP. Managed to beat them, then did that little pre-scripted, "there's no way you can effin lose here" fight, then sat back and waited for the ending to roll...and waited...and waited...stared at the black screen like it was a spatial anomaly intent on devouring my soul...and then spouted swears at the screen for a good solid hour. Tried again, couldn't beat Safer Sephiroth if my life depended on it. So, I did what any sane person would do. I took the game out of my PlayStation, put it in its case, and hit YouTube to watch the ending.

    Then a couple years back, the game hit the PlayStation Network. I bought it, and played it on my PS3, this time taking great care to follow guides, get every weapon, and generally max out the party as best I could(except Aerith...who cares what level she gets to, she dies anyway). Still never got Knights of the Round, but got everyone else's ultimate weapons and final Limit Breaks. Then at level...I think 70? I went to give one more go against Sephiroth. I didn't think I had a chance. JENOVA? Piece of cake, took maybe a minute. Bizarro Sephiroth? Didn't stand a chance against the might of three different Bahamuts. Safer Sephiroth? Omnislash and Final Heaven pretty much took care of him.

    Verdict on the original? I love it.

    Now, onto the Compilation stuff. Before Crisis is a dumb phone game, so never played it. Crisis Core was pretty good. Advent Children Complete(the Blu Ray version) is a fun movie to watch. Dirge of Cerberus was a decent game. And of course, the oft rumored remake is a topic of some interest to me. Particularly after the success of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. If Square follows that formula, just updates the graphics and gives the game a fully realized world, but keeps the gameplay the same with some enhancements, then it'll be great. If they try to make it like the later Final Fantasy games, it'll be a hardcore failure.

  • I'd rather them just leave Final Fantasy VII alone.

    I thought that I was the only one this happened to, that was the day my brother and I lost our innocence.

    Also I remember finishing FFVIII and I got a phonecall from my friend, which my mother insisted I take immediately. I missed the entire ending. I still resent you for that Michael Traynor.

  • I remember shouting at the screen after Final Fantasy VII's ending. Not because it froze or anything... but because I was extremely disappointed with the ending. xD I just sort of expected something more than 1 minute FMV. Like what happened after etc.

    I suppose we got that eventually with Advent Children, but as we discussed already, that was hardly spectacular in terms of story.

    Oh, and as for missing endings. I missed the entirety of Suikoden V's True ending because someone decided to walk in my room, and then stand infront of the screen while talking about something, and wouldn't move. Really pissed me off, because I'd gone to the trouble of getting every character so I could see the true ending. Not to mention the last save point was a good 2hours prior to that, along with quite a few bosses along the way. I finally watched it on youtube last year.

  • It's a good game, but its god complex is forever in infinity.
