So I was going to save this for the Remake when I got there, but this made me want to share this now.Pretty sure FF7 was the first game that made me cry. And it wasn’t the infamous death scene that did it, but the game’s ending. After the long, memorable journey getting there it was just…fucking beautiful.
When I was a kid my Grandpa used to watch me play games while reading the paper or whatever. He never played with me because his hands were pretty arthritic so it was too hard for him to play. But he liked to watch. And he used to comment on story or graphics or whatever. And I remember when I played FF7 for the first time he couldn't believe the graphics, especially the cut scenes, and I remember him saying, "There is no way it's going to look better than this."
Sadly he passed before HD stuff really became a thing, he was gone by early PS3 era. But I'll never forget the first time I saw the intro cinematic in the Remake. I heard his voice say "wow" again and I lost my mind. I miss him so much.
