Surprise: The only reason dead things rot is because other organisms are using the energy stored in the organic compounds.

The script might be a little melodramatic and hackneyed, but I think the fact it's delivered in the form of an interior monologue makes it a lot more bearable. We're seeing and learning what's going on in Tifa's head, by the game effectively putting us inside her thoughts. That's a much better way of handling these episodes of character development than, say, Final Fantasy XIII's highly melodramatic exterior monologues, which just came across as downright obnoxious at times.

Couldn't have said it better myself. JRPG scripts have never been good, but they used to be delivered in a much more bearable, even entertaining way. I still blame FFX for the genre's decline, introducing continuity editing and voice acting into the genre.

the illusion of gameplay in Final Fantasy VII is a big contributor to how immersed the player can feel in the story and world. It's such a simple little touch, but the fact you take this walk yourself, rather than just watching it, heightens the tension and impact of what's coming up.

It is what I miss most about these games.

Thanks for this writeup! In a world of shiny but monotonous sequels I find myself getting drawn to this part of the gaming world more and more, the last place original digital experiences can be found. Big thanks for reminding me of Gunpoint, I saw that game in action quite a while back when it was still just one guy with an idea looking for artists, but then I forgot the name (if it even had one at that time).

Some of you wish for this money to be poured into a sequel. That baffles me. There is this very rare occurance indeed where an established house is able, willing and aptly funded to create a digital game outside of the influence of a publisher, and here we have a significant amount of people who would not want this to be an original game? What?

There is a whole website for every conceivable combination of everyone hating everything ever. It's what the internet is.

When I was 11 and my brother was 13, we saved up a lot of money to buy ourselves a PSX. Good times. The only video game console my parents were (reeluctantly) willing to buy was a GameBoy, fairly late in its cycle, and a gamegear. All the others I bought from my own money.
