“Freedom. Boundless, terrifying freedom.”

From: Final Fantasy VII Remake

Genre: Video Games

Who said it?: Aerith Gainsborough

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes the Square Enix game, Final Fantasy VII Remake. As the name suggests, the game is an enhanced version of the original 1997 game that was released on the PlayStation. The game follows Cloud Strife, a mercenary who gets wrapped up in a plot that will destroy the planet.

The quote comes near the end of the game. Cloud and company encounter Sephiroth but Sephiroth leaves through a portal he creates. When deciding if they should chase after him, they wonder where the portal will lead. This is when Aerith delivers the quote.

Geek wisdom: Freedom is good but also scary as it hold so many unknowns. But this is what freedom entails as the choices we make do have consequences.
