Caspius and SiliconNooB celebrate the 25th anniversary of the North American launch of Final Fantasy VII with a look at both the original release and the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII spin-offs, including prequels, sequels, and so-called remakes.


  1. Frasier: Remember when you used to think the 1812 Overture was a great piece of classical music?
    Niles: Was I ever that young?

  2. I still don’t know why I was mailed the Final Fantasy VII short commercial film VHS in 1997. I was already a big fan of Squaresoft, but wasn’t part of their Fan Club or anything. I had subscriptions to Nintendo Power and PC Gamer, but no general VG interest or PS magazines – I didn’t even own or plan on owning a PlayStation until FFVII changed my mind right quick. Still, I watched that tape and looked at the Versus Books strategy guide for months until I did get a PS for FFVII in 1998. That game meant the world to me before, during, and after its release.

  3. How much you want to bet that in part the third, Final Fantasy VII: Redintegrate, Cloud wakes up from being a veggie after the Lifestream exposure and realizes the first two entries were a dream?
    Or else this: forget Tokyo, New York, Paris; too hackneyed. The final scene is Cloud and Aerith on a date going to a church carnival in suburban middle-America. They go on the ferris wheel and there’s fireworks and pony rides and test-your-strength and shoot-a-basketball, win-a-prize and Cloud wins Aerith a big white whatever-it-is plushdoll and a small cat plush from a older blonde guy with an attitude smoking a cigarette while working the booth named Cid. Then they see their friends Tifa and Barret with their big red dog and the view pans out to the stars, ~FIN~, and Limp Bizkit “I did it all for the nookie” plays over the credits.
