Thank you so much everyone for the kind words and for watching it :] about me not talking there are multiple reasons. The main one would be that I had 2 great commentators and I didn't feel like I had much to add to it, then I was also really stressed before the run and that I wanted to focus on the run as much as possible, I guess a minor reason would be that I didn't sleep much before doing this run -_-

You did a great job. I just restarted not to long ago. Watching you win with ease makes me love the game more. And trying to explain things to my kids while playing I lose my train of thought easily.

In all my years playing this game I never questioned the fact that Tifa has been in *three* comas in her life. One. Two. Three. Never gave it a second thought. This run is brilliant on all levels.

I hope in the remake you can date all the party members. I want a date with Vincent. Vincent will spend the entire date having no idea it’s a date and being awkward and edgy.

Next time this game gets run, they should get some people to readings of at least the more important cutscenes that get skipped.

People who think that a 7h speedrun is a veeeery long time, 7h is pretty doable with a game this great. Besides, it took me like 7h to get out of Midgar...

Watching this in the background while playing though FF7 original on PS4 before I get into the remake, right now I’m 42 hours in & ust about to send Cid into space to get the huge materia, right now I’m level 82 & have mastered 42 materia. Aiming for a 100% & Platinum trophy run.

I discovered speedrunning and GDQ for the first time earlier this year. I haven't watched a session live but have been hooked on this video. FFVII has been my favourite game since I was a kid and this speedrun is an amazing video to watch. Great gaming and an awesome commentary from the couch.

My second time watching this run, only this time: It's from the midst of a global pandemic, but I am finding it comforting and it is making things feel a little less hopeless. Thank you. This game meant absolutely everything to me.

Watching these old videos and seeing everyone also say 'Make-Oh' instead of 'Mach-Oh' like they do in the remake is so validating of my entire childhood. Glad it wasn't just me saying it that way all those years.

Coming back to this after having played the remake. They really fleshed out midgar a whole bunch. An hour in here they are already talking about dropping the plate. That took me almost 20 hours of casual gameplay to reach in the remake. Amazing.

No the text at the Guard Scorpion says,, "Barret, be careful! Attack while it's tails up! it's gonna counter attack with it's laser." It's all one sentence, The breaks just have ending punctuation which makes it seem like you have to attack it to prevent the counter attack, but the meaning of counter attack should've made this simple enough for any kids playing this...I know when I first got here as a kid it was pretty obvious.

Luliby 9 måneder siden
This is an awesome run and the couch here is one of the best. HOWEVER, I must correct you on Cid and Shera's relationship. She is not his wife. They say so in the game where Cloud asks Cid about his "wife" while they're all chilling on his plane in the ocean and he basically says that she's not his wife and that he'd hate to marry her (isn't Cid great? :P). You can tell from their relationship shown in the game too. She never calls him her "husband" or her "love" or anything like that, she just calls him the "captain". His "I'm the boss" attitude combined with his bitterness over the junk the Shinra have caused him shows how she is his assistant who works with him. Also, quick story time, the first time I played this, when I faced the Carry Armor, I actually got the unlucky double Lapis Laser and died right at the start. I thought that I was going too fast and was underleveled or something, so I trained and gained a whole chunk of them. When I fought it again, I realized that I must have gotten some bad luck and was now set for most of the end of the story. Yeah. Sweet.

At one point just after 6:53:01 he explains materia, almost saying that you can't have more than two basically, which is untrue, when you master a materia, a new one is born. 20+ Master Materia are possible easy.

This is my favorite run of all time. Amazing work by the runner on my favorite game, and by far my favorite couch commentary. Everything just "clicked" and I'm sad that it may never be topped in quality.
