Should I play FF7?

I think Sephiroths's characters was good.  He wasn't a quasi-philosopher demi-god.  Well, maybe a little bit.  He was supposed to be mysterious, cold, heartless, madman.  And he got plenty of development in Cloud's various flashbacks, times where you meet him, and that place where his "father and mother" were.  Don't remmber much about that part, though...

Kefka: The answer to existence lies beyond chaos.

Kyle: ...Cartman, what the hell are you talking about?

Actually, I hear that if the FFVII collection (as it's being called) goes well, that they're looking in FFVI's direction for possible spin-offs/sequal things...That'd be awesome...War of the Magi...Clyde & Billy...Celes, Leo, Kefka, & Emperor Gestahl (maybe)...there's plenty of possibility there.

I thought they were planning a FFXII spin-off with Balthier?

That would be interesting. One of the most elaborate fanfics I've ever read deals with the Empire before the events of FFVI, and I must say that for all its weaknesses I enjoyed it. I like that game a good deal, and those characters.

There is one thing I admire Sephiroth for; his utter selfishness. For some reason, I find this immensely appealing.

Really? Didnt Sephiroth start his quest by trying to save his mum?

EDIT:O, i get it. its a quote from ff6... :oops:

I don't get it. For some reason, I really like Sephiroth now. There's something appealing about his character that I can't place.

Maybe because he is a silent crazy, rather than a loud crazy, like other villians.  You know hes mad in the game.  But he doesn't act like hes crazy.  If that makes any sense.

Exactly. He's the powerful, plotting killer, but he can talk so silently and thoughtfully you'll be sure he's a sane, balanced person.

There are some very insane and VERY dangerous people in real life that were/are like that.  Supposedly almost everybody that met Ted Bundy (no, not Al) thought that he seemed perfectly normal and rational.

That's actually a really scary thought.  The ones that act whacked stick out, and thus are recognized, and thus their damage potential is only so much.  It's the "normal" ones that are the most dangerous.

I don't view Sephiroth as insane; he is utterly selfish and angrily motivated. There's reason to his actions.

Under that logic, Kefka was sane as well.  He had his reasons too.
