Finished FFVII the other day. Didn't do Emerald or Ruby, but got everything else possible. Will have to exit North Crater and grind the KotRT and Mime to finish that.
Started FFVIII. The biggest turn off from switching to VII to VIII is that VII starts off awesome in Midgar and when all is said and done, is a solid story, ending sequences and adventure with lasting appeal. Finishing it, then going to VIII is a shock because VIII doesn't start off very well at all imo. It is good later and does a lot of different stuff throughout that is interesting to master, but it is a much harder hook to bite coming right off from VII. If I finish this, it will only be the 2nd time I've finished VIII also, but I am looking forward to getting into it again.
I like MMA less because of this forum
