...Specifically, did you hold X the entire game and keep them running? Or did you let them relax once in a while and just saunter?

...I was a "Constantly hold down the run button" guy.

So which is it? What combination of the two?

For 7. Held X the whole time. (I don't remember off the top of my head if this game ever had a single moment where it was better to walk then run).

I recently forced FF7 to run at 720p for hours on end on my PC, but given that it was the mid-2010s I don't think it was all that cruel.

Oh, was that not what you were asking?

Some would call running a PC game first intended to run on Win2K on any modern system cruel and unusual...not that I've room to talk, I got the same game you do.

...But yeah I meant player character

Hey, put the cellphone down for a while
In the night there is something wild
Can you hear it breathing?
And hey, put the laptop down for a while
In the night there is something wild
I feel it, it's leaving me

Does anyone else see this thread title, forget what forum it's in, and think it's about impatient PC gamers wrecking things out of frustration?

Actually my impulse reaction was that it was about running pc games that run up the edge of your system specs Crysis style.
