There is something in the world of video games that has bothered me for many years now. It’s something that has this massive jump in logic that we have never been given an answer for.
In Final Fantasy VII, when Cloud and Friends get the submarine from the Shinra Underwater Reactor so that they can get the huge materia, there’s a segment where they have to fight other Shinra submarines. It’s this nice, if a little dull, mini-game where you swim around and shoot missiles.
And what bothers me about this scene is that you can’t also shoot those missiles at Emerald Weapon! You wouldn’t have to worry about getting certain materia or dealing with a time limit, just shoot it!
