Final Fantasy VII
Welcome to Wikibooks' a little bit incomplete, but slowly growing guide to Final Fantasy VII. This console role-playing game became a smash hit in 1997 and has continued to draw attention from video game fans everywhere.
This guide started August 18, 2005, and was inspired by the massively successful Wikibook to Final Fantasy VI and the dozens of guides already on the Web that aren't editable. Countless keyboards have had their keycaps faded as people worked tirelessly on walkthroughs on these games; this guide's intent is to waste some more time on this activity, hopefully for the last time ever.
This Wikibook doesn't intend to serve only as a walkthrough, but also as an in-depth guide to specific parts of the game, complete game reference, site for in-depth analysis, and collection of trivia—also trivia that is too in-depth or trivial to be included in Wikipedia.
Oh yes, as of yet, ambition is greater than resources at hand and there's only some content in this guide. So far. But it's growing!
Note to the editors: See also the talk page for some random guidelines, notes, and most of the project-related discussion. Also, the Table of Contents below is very preliminary in itself; If some article title feels bad and it's not created yet, feel free to change it. Avoid moving already created articles if you possibly can, but it can be done if you have a good reason.
