As I finished the anime post yesterday, I added a paragraph the novel, but a nudge pulled me to my Steam library to play one of the classic JRPGs, Final Fantasy VII. I started playing it months ago when bought, during last year’s Summer Sale, but with all the game pad shorts that I’ve had, wanted to get a backup before trying to play it more. It can’t be said how good it was to play on PC, & guess you can classify this as a comparison post between the old PS version and the PC port.
Before going further, it needs saying that JRPGS never interest in the slightest before, but I asked my mom to get FFVII for either my birthday or Christmas and for it’s day, the game blew my mind! Sure, the graphics tied with CG cut scenes stung me, but the story and game play drew me in as well. The original PS had its drawbacks, there was no denying that, but compared to the 16 BIT era, man! 🙂
The biggest con for me, (& I know others will say something different), but the biggest issue for me were the cds getting damaged, though I took good care of them, having me go rebuy the game. It got annoying as hell, which I’m sure made my mom annoyed to no end!
(PC Steam Version)
I had the Windows 95/98 disc version of the game, but it ran like garbage, even though our computer specs were in that minimum column to run the game. I will not count that version, so yeah.
You could say I wanted to get FF7 on Steam because I wanted to see how it’d run on my computer & the nostalgia. Well, yes and yes! 🙂 Right off the bat, the game brought back the memories, having me back in the 90s, but not sure if I don’t remember or if things were added to this version, but the characters seem to be more flushed out. Up close they have a better mouth, where as the PS I don’t think had that.
Graphics are much better, which is a given and the game runs better, from what I see, certainly better than the old windows 95/98 crappy port.
If you own either the original game or the Steam version, what do you prefer, notice between the two?
