This was a comment regarding our Final Fantasy VII article, which if you haven’t read, is on the main page:
“I had that post lined up initially, and then I decided to read the actual article rather than being a tool. I’m glad I did.
Up until “Final Fantasy VII and all of its abortions of “sequels” are all games you probably like (if not excessively dry hump and cosplay yearly), but shouldn’t”, everything the author had said was completely true. Every single bit. Even the following note that Final Fantasy VI was better is just as true, and Final Fantasy VII is my favourite game. I’m pretty sure that the author doesn’t actually believe that quote as apparent by the rest of the content, and it would be more appropriate if you removed the brackets and the words “like if not”, instead making it
“Final Fantasy VII and all of its abortions of “sequels” are all games you probably excessively dry hump and cosplay yearly, but shouldn’t”. I think that’s what he actually means, because that’s exactly how the rest of his opinion is conveyed.
Great article, excellently written. I’m now bookmarking that page, it was an absolute joy to read.
I think maybe you guys are doing like I almost did and not even bothering to read the article. His points consist of: Final Fantasy VII was great and should be a benchmark for modern games; the game is too often treated as the best game of all time and too many people pretend nothing will ever be as good – the pinnacle; Advent Children was good only for the point it was Final Fantasy VII related, otherwise it was good at best; Dirge of Cerberus was amateur; Squeenix are milking it because of the morons (me included) that will purchase anything with Final Fantasy VII in the title, and finally that VI is better. All of these are completely true.
I definitely think a lot of you guys are reading the article completely wrong, or with the same glasses you’ll wear when you go to buy Advent Children Complete, watch it again and think it’s the bomb, because he even admits the game is great.”
I cannot say anything other than “Thank You”. Please continue to join us as we create other columns and hopefully keep our audience entertained. Also, any games in particular you’d like us to talk about? Past or present? I appreciate your intelligence and ‘lack of toolness’ more than you know. Especially in a blog-stuffed internet culture like our own.
