Shitty game, but a great intro.
Submitting this clip with that description is like ordering a Zima at a bar. The question is: are you actually gay or simply trying to appear gay?

Hey, I remember when this game came out! I was pissed that they were making their characters look realistic, instead of anime.
I think I still might be.
The instant Square got ahold of hardware that could accommodate real voices, they just went insane with the latin chants.
This intro blew me (away) back in '99, when CG in games was still fresh and new. But even then I thought it was kind of overblown. And it really gets your hopes up for what turned out to be the worst game in the series.
I liked 12 best. Then 9, 6, 4, 10, 7, 10-2, 1, 8. I should play 5 sometime.
FFIX was awesome. That was the one starring the Garbage Pail Kids?
Oh and only angst-ridden teens or emos like #8.
I liked 8. The plot sucked. I just loved breaking the junction system in half. If you knew what you were doing, you could turn Squall into an overpowered juggernaught.
What I liked about 8 was that Rinoa had a dog who would climb unto her arm and then she could fire him at enemies like a missile. This did not harm the dog.
I watched this intro about three times when I played the game.

9 years later, and the sword-gun is still a retarded idea.
If you think about it, it's really pretty great. You fire a bullet, the blade cuts it in half in mid-air, and that gives you two bullets to do double damage.
Wait, what do you mean that's not how it works. Of course it is, if it were any other way that'd be ULTRA RETARDED!

So to you queers who like this: do you have to tuck your junk back when you play one of these? Do you only have to tuck during the forty minute cutscenes? Or is wearing a skirt and drinking a cosmo okay?
Well I'd make fun of your edge, but, like Alton Brown, I do enjoy the occasional cosmo.
Back in 99, the only console games that had any regard for art design were made by Nintendo, Square, or NanaOn-Sha.
And yeah, this plasticine like "realistic" style is a bit played out for Final Fantasy, but at the time it was a visually huge upgrade to FF7 and blew any other game for the PSX out of the water visually.
Shame the whole romance plot and battle system were terrible.
Remember that plot twist where all the characters realized that they all grew up in the same orphanage, and that the game's main protagonist was their matron? And that they all just sort of forgot but now suddenly remembered?
That was dumb. Still a fun game though.
i was like fifteen when this came out and i still hated it. but i am not rating the game, i am rating the intro. this intro is queer and the music is bland.
From the plot to the characters to the junctioning to the combat to Triple (fucking) Triad. This game was a perfect storm of terrible.
This is a pretty definitive deconstruction (though the guy gets a bit too Angry Game Nerd sometimes):
