About Final Fantasy VII

The story of 7 has multiple facets, but the main story involves the discovery that the planet is alive and Shinra's Mako Reactors are actually siphoning the life energy from a living planet. The obvious comparisons to our planet are rather obvious. That Sephiroth's ultimate attack Super Nova hits our solar system, destroying every planet but Earth, Mars, Neptune, and Uranus, by summoning a meteor from deep space that causes the sun to go Super Nova, only reinforces the paralells to our world.

As for the characters, Cloud is amnesiac, without real memories of his own, who learns the truth of his life while also chasing the villainous Sephiroth, he learns what a true hero is.

Barret is blinded by his hate of Shinra, not without justification mind you, but learns the value of forgiveness.

You learn a great deal about several characters during the game.

Final Thoughts

I'm not a big Cait Sith fan.

However, during Final Fantasy Record Keeper's 1 year run, Final Fantasy VII has been the most prominent event used, and perhaps it's just my perception, but to me, it's not even close, this allows me to get my characters from that game high for the Nightmare dungeons.

There have been 12 FFVII events. not a surprise considering it's easily the most popular in the series. Since there have been 59 events based on specific characters, that means 1 in 5 events have been involving FFVII characters. The next closest is FFVI, with 9. FFII has yet to be represented at all, and Tactics, FFXIV, FFII, and FFI have only appeared once.
