What’s up ya TAYter tots? It’s forum time! On my last Forum there were 9 comments. The record since I started tracking this is 23. Let’s beat that number today! We’ve made it through another week of quarantine, but we’ve got a ways to go yet. Make sure to say hello to your fellow TAYers down in the comments and keep each other sane in these tough times.
It seems like a lot of people are enjoying the Final Fantasy VII remake. I’m not one of them as I don’t have a PS4. I have a bigger confession to make, though. I never finished the original. I actually never played it when it came out as I didn’t have a PS1. How cyclical. I’ve never had a PlayStation console of any number, but that’s not what we’re discussing right now. I always knew FFVII was an important part of gaming history and meant a lot to a lot of people, but it wasn’t until I started hanging here on TAY that I started to feel the encouragement to play it from people like Z and some others who aren’t around anymore. I bought the PC port on Steam a few months after I started frequenting TAY, but because of a stupid default control scheme for the driving parts of the game, I died and of course it was just after I missed a save point. Lost progress and then never went back to try again. Z bugs me every now and then about playing it again. All this excitement about the remake makes me think it’s time to give it another shot. It’s been like 6 years, though, and I don’t remember anything, so I should start over.
