Hello There, Midgar!

Way back in the late 1990s or early 2000s, I borrowed my friend’s copy of Final Fantasy VII to see what the hype was about. I popped the game into my system, and I was greeted to a bunch of sprites going on a strange mission. I was bored within the first three minutes of the game. Don’t ask me why — I just was, so I turned it off and never went back to it. Never fear, though! I’ve always had the intention to try again, and I’d even bought the greatest hits version of the game.

Fast forward to 2011. I saw on Amazon that they were selling Final Fantasy Advent Children Complete, the Blu-ray version, for a reasonable price. I bought it and watched it, and that fuelled my interest in the FFVII series again — albeit I’m mostly interested in Reno, the other Turks, and Shinra. Regardless, I’ve decided to get the PSN version of the game — including FFVIII and FFIX — just so I can play it on my PS3.

At the moment, I’m still stuck in Midgar. I was told that the game gets interesting when I leave Midgar, and I hope that’s true! I do like what I’m playing so far, and Barret cracks me up, but something about doing all those bombing mission in Midgar doesn’t excite me!

Now, let’s see how far I play this game before it gets abandoned. I swear, I love the FF series, but I’ve yet to beat any of them! I’ll beat one of them these days.

    Great game. Yeah, I’d also say it gets better after you leave Midgar. Right now, it’s kind of confusing as to what’s happening. IMO, it got interesting for me when Cloud explains his history with Sephiroth.

      *nods* And of course I already know the whole story, so yay? XD But yeah, I’ll just keep playing for a while. 😀

    FF7 is a game I need to go back to and finish. I think I stopped somewhere after going to Cloud’s home town…? Somewhere around there XD;;

    Like you I’ve never fully beat a final fantasy game even though I love them! I always got stuck on the final grind run before the final bosses, and kinda move on to something else before I faced the final boss.

    Indeed the game gets so much better after you leave Midgar, as it is mainly a tutorial level and building up the story line.

    Stay strong, you can make it! The first time I played the game I borrowed it from a friend and I got further than he did that day, I actually made it to Tifa’s bar.

      Hee, I am persevering! I’m at Shinra’s HQ for the first time now!

      I can’t wait to get out of Midgar. I don’t mind it, but the dystopic society and the architecture is getting old . . . .
