I played the game... just never beat it LOL. So I read up on it and just took out what I thought was interesting. Explain to me the point? Cause I like my interpretation. And in my opinion, it could be a direct satire.
Sin was created and controlled by Yu Yevon, as you find out later in the game. That changes everything, yes?
Their religious leader was the one killing all of those people. The Al Bhed were in the right.
I was thinking about playing Final Fantasy VII again and finally beating it, [I’m only a few battles away from beating disc one… then I’ll beat the other two over the next 30 years], and the thought of the character Sin came into my mind. I forgot that ‘SIN’ was a character in number 10 and not 7, but I remember thinking about how it all tied in to what I was noticing around me, as I played Ten the first time around. So I read this article and it is a DIRECT satire on how we are placing high values on possessions or ‘Machina’ [an obvious pseudonym for Machines]. Reading this, I realized it’s all one big satire on our failing society. SIN was created because we held our ‘cities and possessions and machina’ at too high a value. Sin was created to destroy those who praised the Machina. Sin is created by the greed and desire for possessions! Yevon [a possible pseudonym for maybe Yaweh, hebrew for God?] is thought to bring us to the light that these possessions are destroying us, and Yuna [a priestess] taught the people to repent and that by repenting for their greed, Sin would be destroyed.
This is so interesting to me.
this guy just missed the point ENTIRELY… Must not have actually played the game.
