The Role Playing Games genre is absolutely filled to the brim with games from different developers each with their own different franchise that has a handful of games set in various fantasy worlds, the question is, for a beginner, where do you begin? Well folks, Today’s Deal of the Day is where.
Final Fantasy VII is the staple RPG game that any gamer even taking a whiff at the RPG genre should have at least played once in their life. I mean it. The graphics certainly aren’t the best I mean, Cloud has pointy muscles for god sake, but as a starting point for any wannabe RPG nerd, this is definitely the one.
Don’t let the number put you off either, Final Fantasy VII, as far as I can remember, doesn’t really follow any story arch from the previous FF titles – though I’m probably wrong, it has been a while since I’ve played it.. Don’t hurt me!
Final Fantasy VII follows Cloud Strife, a mercenary who initially joins the eco-terrorist rebel organization AVALANCHE to stop the world-controlling megacorporation Shinra from draining the life of the planet for use as an energy source. As the story progresses, Cloud and his allies become involved in a larger world-threatening conflict, facing off against Sephiroth.
