FFVII Ep. 1 – OH GOD, WHY DO I HATE MYSELF SO MUCH

OH GOD, WHY DO I HATE MYSELF SO MUCH – FFVII Ep. 1

Well, my dear friends… because I simultaneously love and hate myself, and am greatly anticipating and fearing the remake of Final Fantasy VII that is on the way… I have chosen the original for my next Let’s Play. It’s not my personal favorite Final Fantasy, but it’s the first one I played. I think it’s a good game. I also think it’s slightly overrated, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy it. I also consider the extended universe to be slightly silly, but the game is still good. This is going to be my biggest undertaking yet, but I’ll get through it somehow… let’s get it started!

If somehow you haven’t play this game yet, this is going to be a pretty complete runthrough. I’m not making promises about doing EVERYTHING, but I’ll do most of it. And it’ll be pretty serious, though I might make fun of the game a little. I just can’t help myself sometimes.

I’m playing the version released on Steam. I still have my discs, and I could run it using an emulator, but that would bring up some graphical glitches and wouldn’t be as smooth of an experience. So to make everything easier, I’ll be using the Steam version, which also has slightly improved graphics.

LET’S GOOOOOOO

STARS! (Also, I did something with the overlay to try and take up some of the dead space)

They look archaic now, but these graphics blew my damn mind back in 1997.

The flower girl was just hanging out in the alley. That’s… that’s a little weird, but I won’t question it.
