I just like the fact that Square put John Carpenters alien from The Thing and made it the central antagonist. Not an evil emperor, not a demon, a shapeshifting biological life from that absorbs others and turns them into its slaves. When you think about it, this game has more in common with a sci fi horror flick then a typical fantasy story. Even outside of Midgar, you see some of the failed cronenberg experiments roaming the world. IT really was never just about some blonde spikey haired dude fighting a silver haired anime killer. Not to mention, most of the time you fight Sephiroth, it's not him but Jenova taking the appearance of him and mutating into a grotesque freaky monster thing. It's just after playing the compilation, I think the developers forgot what made FF7 unique and special so I apologize if I seem a bit critical.That sequence was very special and creepy to me for two reasons
The fact that we hadn't seen Sephiroth yet.
Not sure how they're gonna handle that sequence in the remake. I would have really wanted them to not show Sephiroth in the first game, but that's just my opinion. This is not a 1-1 Remake so who knows what's gonna happen.
