video game of the week
Over the weekend, I got a hankering to dust off my copy of Final Fantasy VII. I'm enjoying it, as I did before; I stayed up with it past 1 a.m. the past two nights. The gameplay is mostly similar to Final Fantasy VIII, except that the differences in the magic system take some getting used to. As you might expect, the world is vast and fascinating to explore, with gorgeously rendered scenery, and the plot is complex, with many appealing characters.
I also dig that the game's opening theme is the same as the original Final Fantasy for the NES, and the battle theme and victory music are the same as for FFVII.
Here are a couple of Final Fantasy VII links:
