Yes, every time I have played through that part made me cry a little. It's the music that does me in.

I had an old signature. Now I've changed it.

Hiya! I saw you enter Discord the other night, but I couldn’t click over to it fast enough to greet you (was in the midst of a cutscene in FF Brave EXVIUS).

Unfortunately I didn’t have the same emotional reaction, but it’s entirely because I was spoiled for the event. Since I was anticipating it happening for most of the game, my reaction was pretty flat. Honestly, I feel somewhat cheated. It *should* have a great impact.

Watch me play games on Twitch!

I was pretty observant during the first commercials on T.V. before FFVII's initial release. I recognized the girl in the church as the one to die later on. When I played the game and beat it for the first time that death had no impact on me.

Aeris's theme is very beautifully poignant and really makes the scene work.

The music by itself brings me to tears, even without the game.

And I say this as someone who has never actually played FF7 far enough to get to this scene, and only knew of it many years after I first heard the music.

It's definitely a powerful scene, even 20+ years on. I'm playing through the Steam version now, and it still stirred emotion in me, despite knowing what happens and seeing death_unites_us pick apart how bad that actual cutscene is quality-wise

It upset me pretty badly the first time I saw it. For some reason, the normally incorrigible Yuffie suddenly wailing and leaping into a stunned Cloud's arms hit me like a ton of bricks. I wasn't a huge Aeris fan, but she was a major character and it seemed so sudden and unceremonious.

"So, are you a fan of the Fett?"

"Nah, I'm more of a Star Wars guy."
