Oh, God. Here's it is.
Final Fantasy VII is a great game. One of my favorites. However, this moment is heavily overrated. Here are my reasons for this.
- I didn't play FFVII until I was 19, and the game had been out for a few years, and thus had the scene spoiled for me.
- The death is foreshadowed for pretty much the entire first disk. The instant you see her standing there in the cutscene, it's obvious what's about to go down.
- I didn't really use Aeris in my party.
- I was a Tifa guy, myself (if they would've killed off Tifa, I would have been significantly more upset.)
So, one more time, let's have a look at the scene that broke thousands of gamers' hearts (or at the very least, made them lament that they had spent a ton of time leveling her up, as my little brother did. She was going to kick ass, and then she was gone).
On a more 'meta' note, was there ever any doubt that when I made the "but I had like 50 phoenix downs" tag, that this was coming? I feel like I sort of spoiled it, but whatever, you had to figure this clip was going to be on the list at some point, anyway.
