I'm wondering how much knowing a certain Final Fantasy VII spoiler will ruin the story for me.
WARNING: A MASSIVE FF7 SPOILER AHEAD, BUT PLEASE DON'T CONSIDER THIS TOPIC OKAY TO DISCUSS FURTHER SPOILERS. I'll explain but I only want to know how much of the story and ending you think I got spoiled, not any specifics of what else there is or isn't.
I've only played maybe half of a really poor em version of Final Fantasy 7, and I liked it so much that I decided to stop playing and wait until I could at least play the official PS1 version, so that the bloggy character models would be just that much more clear and I would get the best experience of this classic game possible instead of micro-partially wasting my first time with it on a subpar version. I basically took the female philosophy on virginity and applied to this game: for something so special, so sacred, as FF7, for the first time, you don't just want to experience any version, you want the best.
And now with the remake announced, man, I'd love to wait for that to experience the final half of the story. Will probably be years though. Anyway, unfortunately, SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER, every time I go to the comments section on a FF7 youtube video, someone posts about Air or Aeris or Aerith dying at the end, especially with the remake now they say all this means is Airith will still die at the en. And then I also saw someone said the black feather was Sephiroth and the flower was Aerith, hinting that Sephiorth killed her. Anyway I'd like to know how badly you think the experience will be ruined for me. Is this like spoiling (Harry Potter spoilers ahead) the Tom Riddle twist that was central to everything in Harry Potter 2, or is this just one of many things that happens throughout a long game with tons of characters and not going to hurt the experience much if at all?
