While browsing the web I came across a bit of information that seemed both preposterous but also very plausible. It deals with the old CBS show called Gilligan's Island and its similarities between a very dark place;
GILLIGAN'S ISLAND aka Hell
Years ago, CBS had a popular little series called GILLIGAN'S ISLAND. There is, however, a dark secret about this "comedy" you may never have realized. The island is a direct representation of HELL.
Nobody on the island wants to be there, yet none are able to leave. Each one of the characters represents one of the 7 deadly sins:
Ginger represents LUST - she wears skimpy outfits, is obsessed with her looks, and is a borderline nymphomaniac.
Mary Ann represents ENVY - she is jealous of Ginger's beauty.
The Professor represents PRIDE - he is an annoying know-it-all.
Mr. Howell represents GREED - no explanation needed.
Mrs. Howell represents SLOTH - she has never lifted a finger to help on any of their escape plans.
The Skipper represents two sins: GLUTTONY - again, no explanation needed and ANGER - he violently hits Gilligan on each show.
This leaves Gilligan. Gilligan is the person who put them there. He prevents them from leaving by foiling all of their escape plots. Also, it is HIS island. Therefore, Gilligan is SATAN.
Crazy? He does wear red in every episode.

I don't like RPG, I detest them. With the exception of Pokemon Blue, turn based combat was not my cup of tea. Having to what any amount of time more than two seconds to attack, to an eight year old, felt like an eternity.
Fast forward to 2003, by then I've had about 5 games( my parents spoiled the crap out of me ;] ) and among them was MGS 2. Til this day, I am a fan of the masterpiece that is the MGS series. However amongst these games, not a single turn based game existed. My good friend Willie lent me Kingdom Hearts. I fell in love. As a collaboration between Square Enix and Disney, I found myself connecting with the Disney characters, but confused as who the other main characters are. For instance, in the first level, you're introduced to Tidus, Wakka, and a third character I can't remember. It wasn't until later that I found out that they are the main characters to FFX. After beating the game, I became aware of many of the character's existence but had no back story on them. Still I was not so amazed that I needed to go and buy every game and play it.
Now the previously mentioned Willie actually burned me a copy of the FF7 PC game. Now I have no excuse but to play the game. However, my PC was so full of crap, it wouldn't even recognize the CD's. So I took them to a friend's house to play, only to get no farther then the first game. I dismissed the game and left them at my friend's house, who still blames me for his Final Fantasy craze.
2009, where everything is coming to fruition, I buy a new computer and decide for fill up my gigantic hard-drive with anything I could get my virtual hands on. Amoungst the vast list of downloaded materials included a FF7 game. I decided to keep it and save it for a rainy day.
Well that rainy day has come (literally and metaphorically), and now I can't stop playing that godforsaken game. Seriously, I even downloaded the official walk-through and have been on it nonstop. I hate you Japan
