Why Video Games Live did not live up to my personal hype.

It's quite simple really. My favorite game (of all time perhaps) just so happens to be Final Fantasy 7. I also enjoy pretty much all other Square Enix games. I was ready to shed tears for the inevitable FF7 / FF10 sequences realized by a full orchestra and backed with the loves images of my gaming past.

Oh wait.

Square won't let them use any video from the games.

Seriously, what the fuck is that. Don't get me wrong the music was still awesome and the pianist truely made me reconsidered the capacity human hands can work at, but it was missing something. Something to fixate the eyes on an captivate, and I was left a little dispointed by that.

So what happens when eveyrone chants Kingdom Hearts? Oh yeah... they play random scenes from Disney cartoons. No sir, that doesn't work. I don't even like Kingdom Hearts but like, come on.

Other than that, it was pretty awesome and I loved it, the Metal Gear Solid bit was pretty awesome, Halo obviously, Mario and Zelda were cool too. AND I DID GET TO PLAY GUITAR HERO 3 HAYYYYYYYYYYYYy

(On a side note listen to my sorrow. I'm studying abroad in London til Dec. 18th. I have NO consoles with me. NO video games. NO DS/PSP... AND my internet connection is so shit poor I can barely play a flash game, let alone Steam and especially not my beloved WoW, so playing a real game and Guitar Hero 3 today was utter joy). I'm out pz.
