After the way things went with part 1, and the way internet gamer discourse always goes, I just wish people would be nice to FFVIIRB. You know, the catalyst for me realizing who Tim Rogers is, what he and Insert Credit stands for all along, their subtle influence over the years, and me coming to this forum was entirely because Tim’s Positive nuanced video review of FFVIIR was the only one I could find that matched my opinion at all, and lead me to look into his work.
Please, at the very least, mark your spoilers. I’m probably not going to be able to play the game any time soon, and it means a lot to me.
If saying that I think people are overly harsh on FFVII Remake for what it is makes me a “Stan” (whatever the fuck that even is supposed to mean gdi), then so be it. There’s so much room for a nuanced conversation of meta narrative here that I feel very few people are qualified to have an informed opinion on. If that’s gatekeeping, again so be it, man. Noobs can enjoy or not enjoy, but they don’t get to tell me it’s a “shit game” or not when they are lacking context. -The understandably heavy and deep context here. It hurts to see typical gamerbro groupthink hyper critical knee jerk shit takes strictly from the context of “what’s happening in gaming” these days.
It’s the sort of thing that I say a lot— I think it will be decades before we really have a clear understanding of what is really going on here.
And maybe I’m being a little over dramatic here, but I hella miss syzgy’s posts in a thread like this.
This isn’t crisis core, this isn’t advent children or whatever SOLDIER PUBG, this isn’t The Third Birthday, it’ FINAL FANTASY fucking SEVEN REMAKE— PART II
