FF7 will always be the core of my nerding

when i was in elementary and middle school, i secretly played Final Fantasy on my NES. it was apparent to me, even at that age, that the rest of the girls i knew were not playing video games, let alone rpg video games, for hours and days on end. because i wanted to fit in (just like every other middle school girl ever in life), i kept it on the low.

in high school, i got Final Fantasy VII for Playstation and played it all the time. like, ALL the time. but again, totally on the down low because i didn't want my friends to know what a super nerd i was. i'd stay up late playing FF7 on weeknights. if there was nothing going on during the weekend, i'd have a secret FF7 marathon. seriously, it was an addiction. the worst part is when THE BAD THING happened, i had no one to go to with my shock and tears. damn you, Sephiroth!

but now that i'm older and have fully embraced the nerd that i truly am, i can share this with you.

and in case you wondered, Red XIII is my fave according to this flowchart of awesome.

in related news, i think an epic replay of this game is in my not too distant future. sadly, my original Playstation is long gone (RIP friend), so if you have any helpful info for helping make that happen, let me know! 

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.


  1. I'm rereading some of your blog to come up with some better interview questions, and I just saw this! LOL. I didn't really ever play this game, but I do love games too.

    I loved King's Quest! Did you ever play that one? Spyro too. I loved the older Spyro games before they were sold.

    Oh FFVII, I will always love you.

    THE BAD THING was the first thing in a game I ever sobbed over.


Hey you! What do you have to say?
