On average 3.5 Weapon guides for FFVII are submitted each month.
From: CJayC | Posted: 10/4/2005 8:30:33 PM | Message Detail
Over the last year and a half, anyway. That means that, since FFVII's release in 1997, I've probably received over 300 of them.

*sigh*

But seriously, if there were enough to drive you to post here about it, there are many indeed.

I could have sworn I just spoke with someone the other day about their next great idea being some kind of weapon guide for that game. When will they learn?

I figured there was a problem. In the last week I've seen two topics created with their respective users asking why their FF7 weapon guide was rejected.

It'd be interesting to see how many of them are:

a.) Done by first time writers
b.) Taken directly from a player's guide.

From: Gemerl | Posted: 10/4/2005 10:09:12 PM | Message Detail
And here I was trying to help someone on the help board over the same thing... So when a question like this comes up:

"My weapon guide is X times bigger than what is posted and offers a better/alternate method to the posted method."

What should we tell them, that they have no chance of being accepted as they are? Thanks.

This gets me wondering if there is really any position for such a guide at all, and if the greatest weapons guide in the universe were written, somehow tearing the game apart at the seams in order to extract billions of mathematical formulae to assist in defeating them, would it be accepted? My interest has been piqued.

From: RockMFR 5 | Posted: 10/5/2005 7:01:44 PM | Message Detail
Okay, logical fallacy time!

~300 weapons guides have been rejected. I'll estimate that each one covered approximately 100 weapons. 300*100 is a really big number. Like 30000. Therefore, because of FFVII, there are 30000 more violent gamers walking the streets. Assume that over the 10 or so years that FFVII has been out (I don't know...), each of these "violent gamers" have spread their philosophies to 2 other people each year. Avoiding all the difficult math, there are like a 100 million more violent people because of FFVII.

The ESRB has failed us ;_;

I assume he meant Weapons as in Emerald and Ruby, not equipment. Plus, why would you multiply the number of weapons covered by the number of guides to get the number of people affected?

You know, FFVII is on the Top 10 FAQ Page list, despite its age. I should play it some time... On second thought, maybe not. I'd become addicted... I wonder if CJayC has ever played it. I bet he knows more about it than any other game he's never played!

That game is about 20 years old and hundreds of Mario games have been released in that time. The effect is somewhat diluted.

Somewhat amusing, but only because it's not me going through them. I really should go replay FF7 again, but I'm being stymied by the thought of raising the golden chocobo yet again for knights of the round...and duplicating it for the Weapon fights.
