      If you mean FF7, it has a notoriously bad translation. You can play FF7: Reunion mod and get a translation somewhat closer to the Japanese original. It's still not some kind of writing masterpiece. But there's a bunch of parts that make more sense than the official English translation. Especially Cloud's flashbacks.

      Western fans created an entire headcanon based on how the English translation was ambiguous in some parts and flat out altered in others. And decided Cloud's entire character based on one "let's mosey" line. But these things didn't exist in the original Japanese.

      The whole point of her character since the original game was to be a red herring. You're suppose to think she's a prostitute based on how she looks and her simping for Cloud. And then as the game goes on, her personality and role in the game proves to be the opposite. While the demure, chase looking girl Aeris is actually the horny one. It's basic contrasting design.

      > “We are finally going to link up with Advent Children, that is going to be part of canon,” Kitase said. “The overall storyline, the developments, will not go wildly out in a way that will not add up to Advent Children in the end. I don’t think anyone wanted that, that’s not what we’re looking to create here. [But] to make sure it doesn’t become stale and people know exactly where it’s going, [that it] doesn’t just follow the original word for word, we add in extra elements which add that little bit of doubt.”

      True.

      Totally false. He and the staff didn't want to. Because the Final Fantasy staff is all about change for the sake of change. But the vast majority of the fanbase just wanted the same game with better graphics. (Which was never possible because changing the graphics and adding voiced dialogue was going to mean it's nothing like the original game. But FF fans are stupid).

        I'm not saying that the fans wanted something new, I'm saying *he* said that the fans wanted something new. He made up his own headcanon to justify changing the story insisting that "we have all the original guys working on it so we definitely know how much can be changed and how much can be left the same." Except, even the people that are okay with the changes don't even call them good; they just say, "why would you want the same story from 30 years ago anyway? It would have been worse if it was 1:1."

          They're still just mysteries. It's hard to form an opinion on their effectiveness or impact if we don't see their payoff and they left 95% of that up to the final game.

            The problem is, with Nojima writing it, and the typical FF formula, most of the mysteries won't get answered. They'll just pull some plot twist out in the last chapter that invalidates 90% of what came before. Or worse, just drag it out endlessly like Nojima's other baby, Kingdom Hearts.

                Zack in intermission is a perfect example. It didn't make any sense at the time and amounted to nothing. They only do this to make people discuss and theorize for years to hype them up to buy the next game, not because they actually have any story to tell.

                They could use it to actually force Cloud into reconciling her death prior to AC but they could do a lot of things. If she does live which is much more likely they could write it where Tifa learns of the other worlds and realizes saving Aerith means she doesn't get Cloud to herself and she has to decide to do it anyway for her friend so they can be happy. They could do lots of things, but they probably won't. The simplest expectation (Aerith living, perfect happy ending) is their obvious intent and their most likely course of action.

                Though the final "goodbye" she says was delivered very melancholic, it seemed in a way that it was possibly a final one, like she knows she's dead and she's just trying to comfort him. That wouldn't violate the Red feeling her part either because she's part of the lifestream so he might still feel her even if she is dead. But I don't believe that she is.

                Yeah. I guess there is the hint that even if the worlds are but formed out of memories, aspects of it can be transfered into living reality like they did with the white materia.
                I'm a bit torn on the direction of things. When Remake first started I felt her death is so important to the story they need to keep it, but now that they've done this whole challenge fate thing and made her death scene so vague they almost just kind of have to go through with the fan pleasing end for it feel in line with the rest of the story.

                I still feel that way, but they're doing this anyway, so nothing can be done about it. It definitely feels sort of cheap to me if both her and Zack are just back to life like it doesn't matter.

                I think she exists within those other tangent dimensions and is projecting herself through Cloud's shattered mind, but she is most definitely dead in Cloud's true world.

              There will be 12 hours of disappointment but before the acceptance that they wasted a decade obsessed with trash the cope programming will kick in and they'll start forming theories like R=U that explain how the story isn't shit, its ACTUALLY genius. So genius in fact that the writers and directors didn't even realise it was there.

        Speaking of which, I did not expect Cloud's ENG VA to sound like his character naturally. I think he was in one of the Euphoria director's movies but he did not sound like Cloud. I think he lowers his voice for all of his roles but this one. Niece was in the room while I was playing Rebirth and it took her awhile to recognize Cloud's voice from Teen Wolf.

                Well, the point is more about how sephiroth even in ac comes back with the concept that Cloud needs to remember him because his existence is tied to Cloud. Then remake starts with sephiroth saying the exact same thing, how he should hold on to that hatred, remember him, how he cant let Cloud cease to exist.

                That's not the issue, the issue is how even if a current cloud forgets sephiroth there will always be a version of cloud post nibel that will remember him. It is as if the whole memory of Cloud that lives in the planet is infected by sephiroth because of that event.

                Should have been obvious from the beginning too. Shinra destroyed Wutai in the war, they would never sign a peace treaty, makes no sense to do so. When you do the math, having Shinra put someone in control of Wutai keeps them under their control while giving Shinra another tool to spread propaganda.

        To be fair, i really dont see why Sephiroth should care about Zack. I blame cc that tried to give friends to Sephiroth when he was always supposed to be a very lonely character. His obsession with Cloud makes sense because Cloud killed him in the moment he became "free" of his shinra chains. This is more a consequence of cc making Sephiroth a character that was supposed to be a friend of zack.

        When Cloud was a kid, he had a crush on Tifa. It's a plot point in the original game that he left to join SOLDIER to impress her. In the dumb way a young kid thinks a grand gesture will get a girl to notice him. What's really dumb is that Tifa later admits she also liked Cloud as a kid. While at the same time saying she never talked to him because he was a loner. The unrealistic part is not Cloud, but Tifa. In the same way, Aeris grows to like Cloud for unrealistic reasons.

        But these ideas came from a team of writers who get all their knowledge of love from guys like George Lucas and Tomino.

          In the original it was that the night he told her he would join soldier was the night she thought he was cute. She didn't even remember his face until that night too. In reality, the "dumb" grand gesture really did make her notice him.

      In the original game, it's because they were both scientists in a similar field of study. And isolated in a barren region with little to do but talk to each other. In the remake, you'll probably have a 2 hour event that doesn't give any reason for them being close besides lots of melodramatic cinematic shots and symbolism.

            Yeah, and they've said since before even Remake came out that they know the game will have an extremely long sales window and aren't worried so much about immediate sales.

            Remake sold what, like 3 million the opening month? It recently crossed 7 million sales. Rebirth will do the same, as will the third game in the series.

              While you're technically true, and Remake is probably getting most of its money from exclusivity deals and hedge fund money and not customer sales, it still is kind of embarrassing that "the most anticipated remake to the most popular game of all time" isn't even matching the sales of the original. Let alone getting beaten by tons of other games like Animal Crossing or BotW or even Dragon Quest XI.

              FFVII Remake may surpass the sales of some of these in the long run. But the FF brand is clearly not as strong as it used to be. And that should worry SE. They either need to improve the brand name or reduce the development cost/graphical focus of future games.

                And you're just proving my point. That the FF name is not as strong as it used to be. And they should be either working to improve it or stop having Hollywood level development/marketing budgets for future FF games. Other series like Dragon Quest and even Mana have seen increases in sales while lowering production budgets and marketing. While Final Fantasy keeps having to increase their costs just to maintain a fading fanbase.

                Of course, the main problem with FF is they're driving away their fans with shitty games and "change for the sake of change." But as you can see with FFVII Remake, Nomura, Kitase and Nojima aren't going to change their stance on that. So maybe they need new blood.

                >remake to the most popular game of all time
                in what fricking world? FF7 is popular among jrpgs, but its numbers of even the original game come nowhere close to the biggest gaming franchises today

                It's a joke. A dig at the FFVII fans who kept acting like it was because of shit like gamefaqs and IGN polls (which they rigged).

                It sold okay. But not "very well." This is mostly because of it being limited to PS4 for 2 years. And then them purposefully limiting it to a PC platform most people don't use before finally putting it on Steam, long after its hype window was over. But it still is a fact that it didn't sell as much as it could have.
                >rebirth has sold meh because it’s exclusive to a console with an install base not nearly as large and is a sequel too. My guess is sony gave them a lot of money to keep it exclusive
                It's that and the sequel effect and mixed reception of the first episode and the general apathy of the FF IP and the controversy over localization/censorship changes and dozens of other things. FFVII Remake just isn't as hype as it should be. And Square knows it. That's why they're trying to squeeze money out of exclusivity deals and DEI money before the customer.

                FF gamers are overwhelmingly PS and it's barely worth bringing the other platforms up.
                Remake sold decently, but people were open about not liking the Kingdom Hearts tier bullshit. Rebirth's ending all but cements R3 is going to do abyssmally sales wise.

                kek it's getting beat by DS3 no streamer gave a shit about Rebirth except for Max. Like it or not Twitch is the popularity measuring stick for Zoomers. FF16 had way more hype for playthroughs than Rebirth. I've never seen anyone actually get past the grasslands in their playthrough they all quit. The only popular streamer playing the game was Unironically Ninja but that's because he's a diehard old-school ff7 fan he was talking about all the obscure shit you see in ff7 not just the shit you see from glancing at a wiki page.

                it's kind of insane how good the combat in remake was, and the couple of actual issues that people had with it were completely fixed in rebirth. between those couple of changes like making it so cloud/tifa can easily hit air targets, and the synergy system, and ease of swapping between party members it may just my favorite jrpg combat system and favorite rpg combat system of all time.

                The combat has a lot of depth and customization. Yes on easy and usually on normal you can spam shit but on hard the game really shows it’s deep systems and customization. A lot of love was put into this game. It’s telling comparison with 16 which had good combat but no rpg elements at all and godawful side quests and pacing.

                It's a shame that ff7 rebirth didn't do so well. There is a lot about this game that was overdone from the padding to the sheer amount of minigames or stretching of a few sections like the temple. But there's also a lot of soulful moments to balance it all. I don't think we'll get a AAA game like this from square enix ever again.

                I hate this in retrospect because AC is canon and that means this scene happened and Cloud told her all that romantic bullshit and even probably stuck it in her and then <1 year later he's back to moping about Aerith. I'd rather see it just cut, because it also devalues the whole soulmate star-crossed lover angle if that's what they're going for and it turns Tifa into nothing more than a spare who is essentially turned into an abused housewife getting dog piled with kids while Cloud fricks off. If she can't win the Cloud bowl she at least deserves a better ending than that. Tifa as a single mom babysitting kids and staying home all day? That doesn't seem like her or even fair to her, does anyone really want to see that shit again? She should be doing her own thing, maybe even get a spinoff DLC or something.

                I think some anon in previous threads said it best that cloud shouldn't have been too mopey post-ff7. He was too hyped and revenge-fueled after tifa's death that he even motivated everyone to find their reason to fight sephiroth before actually committing to the deed. Then we're supposed to believe that he's a sad boy that can't even talk to tifa? If anything he should be hurting himself not because of self-inflicted loneliness, but because he is burdening himself by doing too much and carrying more weight than he should rather than a deserved hero's rest.

                It seems like Square finally found the one thing they've been trying for after many iterations. I'll be interested in what they do for future games if they stick with this combat.

                You're going to have this scene.
                It won't be optional.
                It won't have two versions or options like who to give the flower to.
                It's going to be a good day.

                Cloti? TRASH. I hope they go all the way with this scene. I think both Cloud an Tifa deserve it, giving their first times to each other.

          It is the consquence of being optional and affection based, even worse because it is only in high affection. So it becomes the optional behind optional. They wont carry that event to the next game becuse of this design.

              So the most they can do is maybe talk about it in the final scene of tifa's resolution in the final game. Or implement a mechanic that asks about who you went to a date with in gold saucer. That's it.

                I think Aerithgays spamming the picture taking and handholding segments from equally "optional" scenes is also worth a giggle.

                Why didn't Cloud kiss Aerith?
                Why did she die a kissless virgin again?
                Why didn't Cloud say anything back to Aerith when she half-confesses?

                Just motorboat these breasts and stop jerking off to ghosts.

Maybe most anons here, still don't understand that woke SE confirmed races for the characters, Cloud and Aerith are white, Tifa is asian and Barret is black.

                Or maybe you are some Discord roasties who raid the threats here,

                Under Twitter posts i saw a lot mystery meat brown women who are so thirsty for massa's White wiener, that they spend years talking about Cloud's white wiener fricking a non white pussy?

                I hate this in retrospect because AC is canon and that means this scene happened and Cloud told her all that romantic bullshit and even probably stuck it in her and then <1 year later he's back to moping about Aerith. I'd rather see it just cut, because it also devalues the whole soulmate star-crossed lover angle if that's what they're going for and it turns Tifa into nothing more than a spare who is essentially turned into an abused housewife getting dog piled with kids while Cloud fricks off. If she can't win the Cloud bowl she at least deserves a better ending than that. Tifa as a single mom babysitting kids and staying home all day? That doesn't seem like her or even fair to her, does anyone really want to see that shit again? She should be doing her own thing, maybe even get a spinoff DLC or something.

                This isnt even a matter of shipping, just pure logic. They're crafting a game where you can remove 90% of your romantic interactions with Tifa if you dont want to.

                Cait sith is the best example ever because it is the lowest affection date, probably the date most players will get because they wont grind stuff like affinity. A considerable amount of people probably got him and the boys.

                They sort of can if they continue to lead into the many worlds bullshit. They are converging after all. He even has a date with Aerith in another universe and we know memories can transfer now. I'm not saying they will or that it's even a good idea, but as you said they're not resolving it completely yet, Tifa will get a lot of focus next game. In fact I'd argue she's the deuteragonist or tritagonist of the entire story. Sephiroth keeps targeting her specifically for a reason. It wouldn't surprise me if they throw a line in the next game about it somewhere. They do still have to take their trip into the lifestream where they're gonna see all sorts of weird bullshit.

    All these people keep going "omg why did they do [x]! it doesn't work with the plot or characters!" When in almost every case, it's the same answer. The producers said "put a cinematic cutscene here" or "put a mini game here." And the artists/writers have to come up with some reason for it.

    This is also how the original PS1 game did it. It's how every FF game has done it. It just wasn't a problem in games like I, III and V because they weren't trying to have a serious tone and deep writing.
