Final Fantasy VII Rebirth: My Journey So Far

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth from Square Enix released this past Thursday, 2/29, for the PlayStation 5. My physical edition arrived on Friday, and since then I’ve managed to make it as far as Costa Del Sol. I haven’t been this excited for a game since the 1997 original, and the story and gameplay have easily exceeded my expectations.

One thing that I find hilarious is not all chairs and tables are bolted to the world. I found this out when I sent a chair from a sidewalk café in Kalm into the street. The sound of crashing furniture follows me and my companions wherever we go.

And that’s all I’m going to say because spoilers. However, I can’t help but share some photos from my journey so far.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is a must play for fans of the original game and anyone looking for a gaming adventure.
