I was totally productive this long weekend (I was off from Wednesday until today)...until I bought FF7 on Steam on Saturday. I played it four times in high school but only 100%-ed it once. I am totally going to 100% this time around. So far I've logged about 16 game hours in two days and am at Cosmo Canyon.
I think it really is my favorite game of all time. I was worried that it would feel really dated, but it actually holds up pretty well! Obviously the graphics don't look great but the story is still really engaging. It feels like a complete world, even though it isn't the kind of hyper realistic / interact with every object kind of thing we're used to.
Last thought...Tifa > Aeris.
