did YOU cry when Aeris died in FF VII?

Yes, I wept into a pillow...
No, I'm a "real" man!
I was so close but not quite.
Thanks for the SPOILER, jerk.
Huh?

slash fic,

Isn't this usually the type of thing you need to go looking for to actually run into it? I mean I know it's the internet, but I think I do pretty fucking good not running into slash fic during my day.

You can't exactly "run into" slash fanfiction as in read the entire story accidentally, because that doesn't make sense. (Although I did once read part of a Xellos/Zel story, not realizing it was, ya know, porn. I stopped reading as soon as it got porny, by the way) You can run into the mention of it fairly easily, of course. Such as "I'm writing A/B fic." Particularly if your sister into slash, her friends are into slash, and her friends become your friends. Now that I'm older and wiser, the mention of someone writing slash fanfiction for, let's say, Yang/Tellah, just incites chuckles now. But when you're twelve, the idea that someone is masturbating to your still-in-the-process childhood effectively and neatly ends it.

4chan would be the only reasonable excuse, no offence to this forum, to delete the entire internet. Pack of utter retards.

I too have never 'stumbled across' anything online I didn't want to see in recent years, although I will confess to looking at goatse to see what all the fuss was about. Kinda gross but not as interesting as the legend surrounding it makes it sound.

DUDE IT'S CATURDAY

Actually the girl I dated last year introduced me to 4chan.  I had honestly never heard of it.  She's also the one who bought my SomethingAwful forum account, which isn't nearly as bad as 4chan when taken in its totality (the music, film and book forums are nice, do not even fucking speak to me of GBS or FYAD).

I actually found /b/ to be amusing to look at about once a month for 30 minutes or so.  Kind of like a really bloody car crash.

If I were to try and become the kind of person who writes amusing stories on blogs or whatever, the first one would be "I Dated a Camwhore".  (No offense, she's really sweet and we're still good friends, she's just a little... odd.  But then again, so am I.)

God.... I cried, but not because of the action that Sephiroth performed. I had spent about 8 hours just leveling my main team...And that main team was comprised of Aeris, Cloud and Barret.

I had that team at Level 45. my closest Secondary team member to Aeris was Tifa. At about 22. I was pissed. I had no idea about what happened to her.... I had decided that I did not want any story hints... and it was most certainly to my detriment.

Oh, it's already far too late for apologies and edits. To keep the Scrubs reference going, this is pretty likely to send Fortebass into what could best be described as a rage coma.

I didn't cry when Aeris died. She was the weakest character, I thought Tifa was cuter, and whenever Sepiroth killed someone I cheered. That's why.

I am on topic; because I am a good person.

Used to be the case for games like Dynamite Headdy or Streets of Rage -- the US versions were made harder overall.

To be honest, I hated Aeris. I never used her unless I was forced to, and I sold all of her equipment.

Yes - I cried for all the gear that was on her character and for the levels I'd worked on for her.

Beyond that, no, didn't particularly care that she died.

I am amazed at how big a deal this scene was and still manages to be.


I need to talk with my composition class instructor to see if I can post a video that used a decidedly different backing track to the Aeris death scene.

Ya know, I've been reading through old Phantasy Star LPs when I found out (sadly, I never played them back in the day) that the Nei death scene and the Alys one were better, despite predating FF7 by a few years.

I know the reason why FF7 is so revered is because for many people, this was the first (or perhaps, the first decent) JRPG they played. Has anyone played it again recently? I imagine it must be painful.

You're not alone in your opinions of the Phantasy Star death scenes, though most other people that I know that have such an opinion are big PS fans in general anyway (i.e., active on the PSCave forums).

Much like a lot of people here, I didn't cry. Why? FFVII didn't resonate with me at all; the characters were hollow, and Sephiroth was an awful, AWFUL villain, especially considering his predecessor (seriously, how many times do we have to watch him walk through fire? It wrecked the Dissidia trailer for me when he did it at the end). I didn't play any FF games from then until XII.

I give the game points for its size in terms of side-quests and exploration capacity, but that's it. One of my favourite QC jokes is Pintsize's description of his "limit break," because to me, that's what FFVII really was all about: long flashy battles, because they could do it now.

I was angry.  I almost refused to play the second disc.



And everytime that they insist on calling her "Aerith" in US releases, it is like they are twisting theat sword in her wound.  I understand the reasons, but you gave us such a resonant character that changing ANYTHING about her just seems wrong, even if it's just fixing a typo.

Although the moment was touching indeed, I found the cutscene onboard the cargo ship in disc 1 of FF IX more even more emotional, for some reason.

She was my healer, and saved my ass a few times early in.

I didn't cry, I was pissed I wasted my time leveling her up. I mean, what's the point of even showing that she has higher limit breaks if you can't use them past the first disk without cheating? That's retarded.
This. I wasn't upset emotionally, just pissed that I lost my healer. I had to rethink my strategy, and that made me angry.
