Final Fantasy: A Cult classic? A game the revolutionized RPG platforms.

 

Final Fantasy 7 is a PlayStation (PsOne or PSX)  role playing game (Rpg).  It’ was one of the most involved games of its time.  It was completed on a lot of symbolism, also relationships that dealt with mythology of different cultures.

Final Fantasy 7 had an apparent story, that to filled all gaps that others had left undefined, unanswered and created a rather tragic story for its heroes & Herione. In which case the story did unfold itself in a very unorthodox manner, throughout
the game in fragments and arranged in order of 3 discs. The story in which
crucial revelations come at points in the game when we least
to expect them.

The game had 9 playable Characters, each to be added to your team throughout the game play. The main character name being Cloud Strife, A former member of Shinra’s SOLDIER Unit.. Who is now a member of the group titled AVALANCHE, in which you learn is an anti-Shinra group led to bring down the Shinra Corporation. Which opened the intial 1st disc, with multiple raids Mako (Energy Reactors) Reactors surrounded by the city of Midgar. Though the 1st series of missions are successful, the group AVALANCHE becomes trapped at a reactor during a mission. The reactor had a bomb set to explode, launching the main character Cloud from the upper part of the city Midgar to the slums under. Where he lands on a flower bed, where we are formally introduced to Aerith (In which we can rename the character as we please.) which then Shinra’s group of enforcers known as the “Turks” operatives sent to capture Aerith.

    Final Fantasy 7 is definitely one of my favorite games of all time. It took all the super awesome mechanics of previous Final Fantasy games and made it more awesome through superior character development. The good guys were good and the bad guys were awesome. The way that Cloud is developed from some random guy to an individual that could take the One-Winged Angel on was intense. The way that Sephiroth developed was also extremely impressive. He goes from kind-of-off to bonkers to let’s-commit-some-genocide. I remember the first time I saw the Midgar Zolom impaled on a tree and heard that it was Sephiroth that did that. I was absolutely stunned at how powerful he was. I feel that the engaging storyline of Final Fantasy 7 set it apart from all the games before and all the games made since and the level of immersion was greater than any other game except half life 2!
