Final Fantasy VII....yeah

HEy...DUN this name sounds FAMILIAR?? ever heard of this game or movie of Final Fanstasy ??? be it from newspaper, game magazines, heard from friends who are game freaks......, or somehow came across it somewhere but just don't know where?? Nevermind, if u don't, make sure u read the followings.......WHy?? SEE BELOW

I would like to comment on the game i love the most, Final Fantasy VII (ファイナルファンタジーVII, Fainaru Fantajī Sebun)which is a console and role-playing game developed and published by Square (now Square Enix), and the seventh installment in the Final Fantasy game series

"It has been said that everything in the universe is fundamentally composed of energy. What we think of as matter is really nothing more than a certain type of energy. And since energy cannot be created or destroyed but merely transferred, some speculate that living beings never truly die. Their life energy is simply returned to the universe in its simplest form."--Joe Rybickii & Dido Perez, P.S.X. Magazine

This is where the story of Final Fantasy VII begins. It seems that an evil power company called Shinra, Inc. has found a way to mine this life energy, draining it from the earth, and using it to control the universe. Fortunately, a resistance organization know as AVALANCHE, has vowed to put an end to Shinra's destructive practices. The story focuses on Cloud, an ex-soldier of Shinra, who teams up with AVALANCHE, and along the way, encounters some very mysterious and powerful allies who help him fight against the deadly creatures Shinra has created to protect its empire. You, as the game player, will decide their fate.

Final Fantasy 7 has been labeled by reviewers and true Final Fantasy fanatics alike as "Quite possible the greatest game ever made." In 1997, Square had released a part of the ever-growing franchise that quickly became a legend and arguably the greatest achievement during the Sony Playstation 1 era; an utter masterpiece to the video game world. Gamers worldwide would experience their first Final Fantasy ported to the Playstation from the beloved Nintento and would be treated graciously with astonishing graphics, memorable characters and a compelling storyline. The game contains one of the most controversial and emotional plot twists in the history of Final Fantasy and possibly all games: the sudden and early death of Aeris. Fans would mourn the surprising loss of a beloved character, only to sit awe-struck at the outcome. This event, among numerous others, created a unprecedented bond between player and game that demanded your full attention and heart from beginning to end, making the game an instant legacy.

Not only was Final Fantasy 7 a complete astonishment to the eyes and to the heart, but the Official Soundtrack left an incredible impression on the ears. The melodies are simply indescribable - the ever popular One-Winged Angel being a prime example of Square’s unmatched composition of an astounding orchestra intertwined with powerful vocals; The theme did not need to be formally translated from it’s core language of Latin in order to expose the depth of the fierce, pitiless, soul that is Sephiroth, the unforgettably vengeful villain of Final Fantasy 7.

Square’s great accomplishment had made Final Fantasy 7 into more than just a video game. They have taken the RPG and extended the title to unexpectedly surprising heights. Square-Enix had most likely never imagined a movie, though it was quite obvious after the outrageous popularity, something had to give! Square-Enix had released Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children, a CG animation movie sequel to the legendary game. So on, they made other games such as the cellular phone game, Final Fantasy 7: Before Crisis (also known as Crisis Core) and Final Fantasy 7: Dirge of Cerberus which ended on the next generation console of Sony Playstation 2. The admirable and endearing characters were even featured in later Square-Enix titles such as Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II. Arguably an unmatched feat in all of these aspects combined, Final Fantasy 7 is still being purchased by many Final Fantasy fanatics.

It is an incredible RPG that combines the efforts of misused human ambition in the pursuit of knowledge with the strength of virtue in the select few souls who are committed to saving what is left of the barely breathing planet. Final Fantasy 7 created an RPG revolution to say the least. It will always be remembered as one of the most beloved achievements in gaming history. It sold more than nine and a half million copies worldwide! With fans wanting more after finishing the game, Squarenix finally decided to work on a project entitled, "Compilation of FFVII" which consists of four titles based around the original FFVII's storyline - the recently released CG movie FFVII: Advent Children, a PS2 game named Dirge of Cerberus , a PSP game Crisis Core and finally a mobile phone game Before Crisis.

So far, there are a series of prequel and sequel of Final Fantasy VII.....there are:
Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII
