So I started FF7 with the intent of actually playing it all the way through and...Iím actually enjoying it a lot.

I really dig the gameís setting. Midgar felt oppressive (in a good way), and the game tackles some darker themes than I thought it would (i.e. prostitution). I actually do like the characters. Kingdom Hearts presented these characters as  one-dimensional (i.e. Cloud being exclusively a moody ****, Aerith being really boring, Sephiroth just being...darkness?) and I think that shaped my perspective of both the characters and this game for the worse. I liked those versions of these characters when I played KH at age 12, but I stopped caring as I got older. But seeing them in this game is actually pretty refreshing, especially given my prior expectations. They actually have some personality, and theyíre all much better than FFXís characters.

And the game is fun to play too. Itís very simple to understand, so there isnít really much of a barrier. The aged, blocky graphics donít really bother me all too much to be honest. I think it adds to the charm for me. Although to be frank, the option to speed up gameplay by 3X and turn off random encounter helped tremendously. I tried playing this game a while on my PS3 without those options, and I didnít get very far. I suppose ďcharmĒ can only take me so far.

There are some interesting areas outside of gameplay where the game clearly shows its age. I donít see many games using the word ďretardedĒ as liberally as this one does, for example.

Iíll definitely be continuing with this one.
