So I started playing the original ff7 for the first time with mods to make it look better

Posted Over 1 Year ago by Grey Echelon

I did ask about what final fantasy I should play first a while back and got a lot of "not ff7" and initially following that advice was my plan and I understand why. But I watched a streamer play the remake which made me curious about the original.

So ya, now I'm playing ff7 as my first. So far it's pretty alright. Hoping it picks up later but it's decent at least. Also the game looks pretty bad without mods. Glad I have this option.

Most Final Fantasy games kinda start slow, in part because that's just how the gameplay works. VII was a lot of people's first, so I don't know why anyone would necessarily recommend you *not* start with it. (Perhaps because it generally is considered among the best, so if you start with it, it's feasibly "all downhill" from there? I dunno.)

I do imagine it doesn't hold up to new players just trying it today, 24 years later. Not just graphically (a result in no small part to swapping which console it would release on after production started). But also a kind of older-school RPG style of combat. I didn't play it until about 10 years after its release, but I admit to being a sucker for its blocky look, and the various different art styles throughout as well. All-time great score, at least.

If you got mods, use it lol

The remake is pretty good in my view, but the original is still better.

How far are you?

I think I'm more than half way through shinra building. If there's a 2nd time for that I think it's the first.

I figured, but I'm also perfectly fine with old school rpgs so it's no issue for me. Hell I might even prefer it.

Fun! It was my first FF. Back in Original GT days I had a GIF as Sephiroth avatar on AIM.

Not totally related, but this afternoon I finally platinum-ed VII: Remake. First game I've ever decided to do that with on PS4.
