    Am I to Old for FF7?

    Hi ppl

    FF7 was the first FF that i ever played on the Playstation in the 90s. Now 16 years later i found and purchased it on Valve`s Steam for some bucks and played it now for 20 or 21 hours and i dont know but may Im with my 29 years to old because I find it harder than before, at least it seemed to me earlier before much easier. Is there anybody else so or I'm just once again become a FF beginner after so many years xD

    so far

    Nobody is too old for Final Fantasy sounds like you're just not used to it after so long but you'll get there. I kind of wish I could go back to being a beginner again, it makes things much more interesting when everything's not so easy.

    I replay it once a year bc I love it so much. It's gotten harder as I've gotten older though. I have less time to really focus with everything else going on in life. I actually ran out of tries sneaking past the guards in the shinra building on my last playthrough hahah. You are not alone my friend!

    What Sheechiibii said ^^

    I would give even older FFs a try too. They are often more difficult and off less hints on where to go next. Seeing all FF themes you love like the combat and the music made me feel like a "beginner" again. It was great

    Any game can seem much harder than you remember especially if you mostly play games from the modern era. You'll grow accustomed to the modern controls and play styles and once you go back things can seem weird, different, harder, or simply not as fun as what you remember. But you're definitely not too old for any game you enjoy playing.

    You'll just have to spend a long time leveling up. That's what really stops you from doing things in that era FF RPGs.

    Not too old for it if you can stomach an overhyped game whose selling point is a timestamp.

    You're never too old for anything. I still play Chocobo Racing, although it's aimed at younger kids and i'm 27.

    A game about crossdressing, murder, and brothels is hardly aimed at kids, mate.

    As other people have stated you are not to old for Final Fantasy, not at all. The elements of the story the games usually convey are mature and have wisdom in them anyway. In the case of Final Fantasy VII the theme is identity; knowing yourself, your reasons to live and what you feel is most important to fight for. The characters namely Cloud undergo tremendous hardships that work to shape the people they are at the end of the game. Anyway I have digressed a bit too far here, sorry about that.

    I'll most likely be playing Final Fantasy for years to come.

    I played FFVII for the first time last year. I was 27 at the time. I know that's a couple of years younger than you are, but seriously, it doesn't matter at all.

    If you enjoy something, go ahead! It matters not what age you are

    Like you, I played FFVII on the Playstation in the 90's.

    I actually started it again last week - I'm 41 years old this year!

    i thought i was too old when i played FF3, 4, 5 for the first time 8 years ago and thought i would not get into it because of the graphics.. i was wrong.

    if you are the sort of person who gets enjoyment out of an epic storyline, then you will most definitely enjoy it.

    Its all about the grinding/leveling... But as I grew older I don't like these aspect of the game anymore.

    I'm 21, and I played the heck out of FF 7 2 weeks ago since I never finished it as a kid. I don't think you can be too old for FF 7, or any FF games, or games in general.

    I personally would say this:I'm in my 30s and still enjoy games.I think very kiddy friendly games are harder to get into.Some stuff that are after my time when i was simply too old for, i didn't get into.FF7 can be fun if you want it to be.Games you liked as a child often you are bound to like it when you are older so:No i don't think you are too old to like ff7.I think it is a silly question.

    Hey there Woti :-)

    No I don't think you are too old at all. Nobody is too old to have interests/hobbies and people of all ages enjoy computer games. I personally haven't bothered with the FF games in some time, but I still enjoy gaming from time to time although I'm now in my early thirties. I probably always will!

    Same for me, I played more than 99 hours to finish the game when it came out and now I'm 29 and don't know if I'll be able to finish it again today...

    Im 32 years old, and I am about to get this on my VITA because I neved had a chance to play the game before, so lol no I don't think that you are too old

    ---------- Post added at 02:34 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:32 PM ----------

    To be honest, I am revisiting many games from the past (thanks to the VITA for the possibility to play PS1 and some PS2 games) and I find that I enjoy them much more as I can "understand" the game and it's mechanics better as I'm older.

    I played at FFVII when I was 12 years old.. I remember I was blocked in the first CD. Actually I was too young to fully understand the gameplay strategies and the story, so I got lost and didnt know where to go to continue the adventure lol. Now I'm 25 and bought the game on the PSN and I'm having a great gaming experience ! This game is amazing ! Maybe you will be shocked at first with the graphics but you will get used to the charm of it. That videogame is not for kids, it's for old teenagers and adults as its not easy to understand and manage to use the materia the best way. Moreover it's full of moral values that some adults would need haha

    If anything you can only be too young to appreciate this masterpiece and that's only if graphics make or break a game for you (which is ridiculous).

    As for the difficulty though, it's an RPG, so just grind if you're struggling. Personally I find this the easiest game in the series.

    Never too old. I've been holding off on sending in my PS3 to get fixed since i've been wanting to get my save data off the hard drive. Now I realize that it's going to be awesome losing all the data so I can relive all the games again. Unfortunately I can't do that like I used to since I don't have the time or want to spend the time to dedicate myself to it like I used to. However I will play.

    Now I'm looking forward to sending it in to get repaired
