Final Fantasy VII was one of the first majorly epic games to grace home consoles. Previous installments of the Final Fantasy series were released on the Nintendo Entertainment System and Super Nintendo Entertainment System, but FFVII was the first in the series to jump ship to the Sony PlayStation platform; a startup system in the video game industry. The game shipped on 3 discs and contained hours of game play and breath taking CGI cut scenes; a relatively new convention for home consoles. The game tells the engaging tale of protagonist Cloud Strife, and the rebel organization AVALANCHE's quest to stop the world-controlling megacorporation Shinra, which is draining the life of the planet for use as an energy source. As the story progresses, Cloud and his allies become involved in a larger world-threatening conflict and face Sephiroth, the game's main antagonist.
One of the most popular characters of the game is Tifa Lockheart. Tifa
is the owner of the 7th Heaven bar and a childhood friend of Cloud
Strife, the main protagonist of the game. Tifa has been considered by
many to be one of the hottest characters in video games, and subject to many cosplay treatments. Just check out today's cosplayer at the park.
