For those buying Final Fantasy VII Remake, will this be your first time playing FFVII?
Never really played VII, I put so much effort and time into VI as a kid and I never had a PlayStation at the time so it just passed me by. At this point I'm just gonna wait for the Remake to play it, I don't have the patience and time to play the original at this point.
I've watched FFVII:AC several times. Named a few of my most played characters in other RPGs "Cloud", before I even played FFVII. Played as him in Dissidia, Theatrhythm etc. Got the Strife outfit in FFXIV as glamour. Finally got a chance to play FFVII as a PSOne Classic on PS3, PSP/Vita. However, I never got far past the first boss. The game just wasn't able keep my interest. Haven't bought the HD remasters, but at this point I think I should just wait it out and play remake instead.
First played in 1997. My brothers and I would go to the mom and pop video store where you could rent gaming systems, and we rented a PS1 for a few weekends in a row and played nothing but FFVII and RE1. It was awesome.
It's going to be my third FF game after FF 13 and 13-2. Obviously, I know a lot about the story from spoilers given how popular is the original but I'm still really interested in playing the remake. I don't know if I'm going to play it Day One though, as I might want to wait for the PS5.
On PS4 this time. So that's like the 5th time i bought it. I had been thinking about a replay before the remake hits, and that trailer coupled with the current sale just tipped me over the edge. Goddamn it Square.
Technically no, as I've played the first few hours on Vita. But assuming I don't bring myself to finish it before next March, this will be my first time running through the whole (first section) of the game.
I started my first playthrough on Switch a couple of weeks ago. I want to play through the original game first, but I've had some bad luck with bugs freezing my game a couple of times. If it happens again I'm not sure if I'll finish it. I want to though.
I borrowed a friend’s copy of FF7 for PS1 probably around 1999 or 2000, but didn’t really get into it. I’m counting the PS4 release as my first play through, but I’m probably going to wait until they release the full game remake. I think I last read that it’s being released in multiple parts (exact number TBD)?
First played on PlayStation, but beat it in like 2009 on my PSP. I lost interest in the game as a kid since I barely understood the gameplay. Interest was rekindled when Advent Children came out, so I watched that, then played Crisis Core, then beat FFVII. Yeah, really stupid order there haha
Nope. I eagerly awaited FF7 back in 1997. At the time I was a freshman in high school and clearly remember having conversations with non-traditional video game players, who at the time (keep in mind, you were a "loser" on average for playing video games back then) were starting to take notice the game. It was the first RPG to really win over the eyes of non-traditional RPG fans, and I remember thinking that even back in 1997. Strange as it is to look back on them now, the graphics and animated cutscenes were that impressive.
Moreover, I was a large 1994-2000 AOL Chatroom Roleplay person. I actually ran a 40 member guild called Shinra back in 1997 on AOL. My friends and I were well ahead of the pack in anticipation of FF7's release, and had already reserved the AOL screen names Turk Reno, Turk Rude, Rufus Shinra, and a few others. It was great when the massive popularity wave hit the scene after the games US release, as we could wield those those coveted screen names in the AOL RP Scene with great arrogance (albeit mediocre roleplaying, in hindsight). I was pretty heavy into that stuff back then. Even better when we'd invade the headquarters (private chatroom) of our closets rivals; those with the names Rufus FF7, Rude FF7, Shinra FF7, Tseng FF7, Elena FF7, etc. Great times.
It was also in 1997 when Tifa Lockhart also became one of my premiere girlfriends. And still is today, though nowadays she has a lot of meaty competition. Alas, I hear she wasn't wholly faithful to little ole me, and that she frequently got around.
