We’ve been waiting, and it feels so good to say that Final Fantasy VII: Remake has finally arrived!

The gaming world was shook back in June of 2015, when the trailer for Final Fantasy VII: Remake was revealed at E3. I mean, people went insane! See for yourself!

But what followed was years filled with excited fans of the franchise… Until today. So with that said, before you go ahead and play it, let’s take a walk down memory lane, to see how far we’ve come, and how many game titles related to the Final Fantasy VII franchise were released previously.

Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII

Before Crisis

An episodic mobile game that was released ONLY in Japan. Players assume the role of a Turk, their characters appearance, weapon, and name. The story covers a seven year period prior to the events of the present game’s setting.

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII

Crisis Core

Released for the PSP, Crisis Core told the story of Zack Fair, a member of SOLDIER. It also tells the story of the iconic Buster Sword (Cloud’s main weapon). A little trivia: The original owner of the Buster Sword is Angeal Hewley, whose father had the blade forged when Angeal joined SOLDIER. Angeal then entrusts the Buster Sword to Zack, and we all know how it ended up in Cloud’s hands after, don’t we?

Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII

Dirge of Cerberus

If you’re a fan of Vincent Valentine, then you would’ve enjoyed this one. Dirge of Cerberus was released for the PlayStation 2, set one year after the events of Advent Children (the movie), and revolves around Vincent’s past while he was still a Turk, and delves deeper into his relationship with Lucrecia Crescent. This was a title that garnered mixed feelings, but if you’re a die hard fan of the franchise, it’s still worth a play through or two.

Those were the main three titles, game wise. Of course, there were also animated movies. In case you’re wondering, it’s Advent Children, and Last Order (although the events of Last Order differ from that of Crisis Core, and are not considered canon).

Anyways, have you played any of the games mentioned above? Already playing Final Fantasy VII: Remake? If you have, let us know what you think in the comments section below!
