Cloud's always been a favorite of mine, even though I've never played his specific game. I mostly know of what he brings over to Kingdom Hearts, but I also own the Advent Children movie(both DVD and Blu-Ray), so that helps
Both of which really doesn't do Cloud's character justice, imo. Kingdom Hearts and Advent Children involved a lot of pandering to a specific audience in comparison with the direct story of FF7. I'd recommend playing it to get a good sense of his character as he was always intended.
Perfect! I shall check it out once I get money in there(I'm saving for Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, so it'll be a while. Plus, I'm leaving for college, so I may not be able to get it so soon for a while)
