    Characters died in games before Aerith. She wasn't even the first party member to die in a FF game. People remember Aerith because FFVII sold insanely well. For a lot of people it was their first rpg. For many it was the first game with a 'real' story to it and the marketing reflected this fact.

    You clearly don't know shit about shit OP.

          The d&d cleric might have been a more typical "young, nice female killed by the bad guy" considering how FF1 was very much a d&d game.

        Agreed. Americans cite Leo from FFVI, but that guy was a guest character, had much less screen time than Aerith (or anyone else), and didn't get to form as much of a connection with the party. I think [...] is right though, that Galuf is a closer comparison, and even has a cool thing where his granddaughter takes up the mantle to continue the fight in his place.

      How often was it from a memorable game that was the main character's love interest too? It's a little different than some elderly party member dying or some game nobody has heard of.

      Not to mention the incredibly dramatic fashion in which she dies. I’m quite certain that had a lot more to do with it than it simply being babby’s first JRPG.

    Man I just replayed this and the scene is incoherent, there is no explanation why nei and neifirst have any connection
    Also they try to make the clone clown racist about raising nei when I already raised her multiple times

    • 3 weeks ago

      That's because it was mistranslated.
      Nai spawned from Neifirst, they were two part of one being. The clone clown in reality says that the DNA of Nei is damaged and can't be cloned for this reason

        I have no idea what they were going for with that. It'd maybe make sense if Faris was naked and turned around. Probably just a really hamfisted attempt at foreshadowing.

      The boat respawns in various places depending on where you enter the overworld. Basically just teleport somewhere, walk outside, and usually the boat will be on the nearest coast. If not try somewhere else or look around more.

        thanks, I saved at the starting city and it was near that coast. I'm glad it was a false alarm; there are multiple ways to hardlock yourself out of the game in Phantasy Star 1.

    Fun fact: People only pull out Nei as the "first Aeris" because the original Versus strategy guide SPECIFICALLY brought this up as a reason why they weren't going to write the guide in a way that would spoil plot points in the game.

      Yeah because so many people owned that guide and definitely a bunch of ADHD riddled kids had the patience to read the editor's blahblahblah novel at the start of their video game guide. lol
