FF VII on PSN- Do I dare?


I may be a little late on this, but I just noticed Final Fantasy VII in the PSN store for 7.99. Now I can honestly say that I've never played this game before, But I've heard a ton of stuff about it both ways (and quite frankly, its fanbase scares me).

The only thing that really bugged me about this game was the fact that they replaced Yoshitaka Amano (An incredible artist, with gallery shows all over the world and who has worked on classic animes such as Gatchaman, Tekkaman and Time Bokan) with Tetsuya Nomura (Someone who imitates the so-called "anime style", and not very well I might add, and who started a trend of stupid, girly-looking protagonists in games), honestly, only about three of his designs look slightly appealing to me (These being Barret, Tifa and Cid).

But I suppose I really have no idea what I am, or am not, missing. I've heard the soundtrack is quite good, and I mean, it has to have done something to earn such a rabid fanbase, right? (then again, maybe not)

Maybe I'll just wait until I have eight quid that I reeeaally don't need.

About Avalonone of us since 4:37 PM on 06.11.2009

I'm a Londoner who enjoys the amusements of the video


-Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistance
-Final Fantasy VI
-Shadow of the Colossus
-the Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
-Megaman Legends
-Fallout 3
-Mother 3
-Street Fighter Alpha 3 (even though I suck)

I also watch a lot of, usually older, films. My favourites are those of Kurosawa, Leone, Kubrick and John Hughes.
I sometimes take pictures with the big old Nikon camera my dad gave me, but I don't consider myself a photographer, as my main interest lies in drawing. That said, I'm an avid fan of comics (both eastern and western; I'll read anything from Osamu Tezuka to Mike Allred) and am currently working on my own of the web-based variety.
And if I watch any anime at all it's usually from before 1990. I don't play many sports, but I do boxing every now and then.
