I’ve never played FFVII, so I don’t have a huge emotional connection to this remake’s release. But I get a lot of folks are very excited to finally get this first part of the large FFVII remake.

FF7 was THE game for me when it came out. I was 15, so the perfect age for the story, and it looked so cool compared with what had come before. I am not just a little embarrassed to say that Aeris and Tifa contributed heavily to my teen awakening, as it were. All in all, I probably put something like 150 hours into it that summer.

Having said all of that, I just can't get excited about this remake. It looks amazing and I'm sure most of you will love it, but at 38 years old I'm more interested in having a totally new experience that can wow me now, rather than trying to relive something from the past.
