Cloud's emotions after Aeris... FTW!!! that was done so well, what happened?
I found it underwhelming, after all the hype I'd heard about it. She's brutally murdered, and Cloud just spouts nonsense like 'she'll never laugh or cry again' as if he's reading a poorly written poem rather than bemoaning the loss of the girl he (presumably) loved. It didn't feel real, and if it hadn't been for the admittedly beautiful music which played I wouldn't have noted it as something deserving of 'saddest scene in a game ever.' Her character wasn't developed enough for that.
Was Serah's death sad? No, because it's a story with time travel and alternate dimensions and it's obvious she'll return to life to wed Snow because that's the tone of the XIII universe. I don't really think Final Fantasy's had any death scenes which wrought a tear out of me; Tella's was pretty sad but the circumstances were rubbish, Terra's was depressing but then she washed up a few seconds later... Zack's is probably the saddest I've seen, and even that was populated with cheesy poetry. Killing a character is the easiest thing to do in the world; it's the context and response of those who remain alive afterwards which make or break it for me. Death shouldn't be poetic or long and drawn out; most of the time it's sudden, unexpected and over before you can blink.
I was venting. Anyways, instead of throwing witty comments, why dont you answer me on some of my points, i find it funny how i had one paragraph about final fantasy vii which i used as an example about emotion in a game, i could have used a lot of other examples but most will know about aeris and cloud, but instead of talking about the lack of emotion in the game, you are all throwing "ffvii fag" comments, I mean, do guys even discuss points or do you just copy and paste come backs that other people have used. @.simon, sequel, thanks for the spelling lesson, i forgot this is partly a literature forum. So instead of acting like hypocrites, explain to me
how can they actually change the future without it affecting noel, without causing a paradox?
what happened to snow, why did he want to become stronger and what was the deal with the brand on his arm... none of that was explained in the end, so answer me?
alyssa was a big part of the story, yet no character had any reaction to her betraying them, they didn't even talk to hope?
do you really think, they went out of their way with creating a new world in ffxiii-2, in regards to the future travels, that they can go 500 years into the future and we see the same layout with only a few rubble or a few trees etc?
do you think it's a good idea to end a universe with a bad ending when the previous story ending and concluded in a satisfying way, dont you feel cheated as a person who devoted how many hours onto ffxiii and ffxiii-2 just to get a bad ending that changes everything, as if ffxiii never happened?
do you hate ffvii that much or are you trying to be funny or are you just plain stupid?
out of an entire page of stuff, one line mentions final fantasy vii and i then explain that i mentioned it to talk about emotion, cause that's what's important here, same with ffx, and you still go on about ffvii, how old are you? cause that would help me out to understand your rationale, is this your thing, just search tags for ffvii and then paste comments to them?
