Yep. It’s Aspilanti84 again. Now Aspilanti84 finds it acceptable to crap over one of the most beloved characters in Final Fantasy history: Vivi.
You tell a kid like Vivi that he’s going to die, and he’s somehow shocked at his death and shocked that things die (even though he spent 40 – 60 hours killing things as a tag along) I’d say that’s pretty absurd and insincere. Almost a “first world” struggle if you ask me. Vivi shutting down (or just stopping as they put it) is the equivalent to humans dying a natural death. Zidane, Garnet, Steiner, Freya, Eiko, Quina, Amarant…they’re all going to die. Why is Vivi so self-absorbed? It’s sad that he lost his innocence after knowing this, but only kids need that type of lesson in mortality…
I don’t think so. But who knows? Who’s to say that Vivi didn’t simply think all of the animals temporaries stopped?
Who’s to say Vivi’s innocent wasn’t shattered when Zidane explains what actually happens?
But this isn’t to say it’s an oversight from the developers. This isn’t to say Vivi knew what really happened. Selfish? Self-absorbed? No way. He was rationally concerned about his mortality. And kids will get this type of lesson in due time, Aspilanti84. No need to force it on them,
Vivi on the other hand, even though the game overtly tried to manipulate you into empathizing and sympathizing with him…once you use your mind and you put your emotions on the backseat, all you can really say is “what did you expect?” It’s sad that this doll had to learn about his fate.
Geez, I detect no empathy from this person.
But in the end, you’re given a life and expected to make the best of it. Why is Vivi acting so entitled to his life? He didn’t do anything to be born.
None of us did, but most of us quite like living. We want to live and will do what we will to survive, hence Zidane’s dialogue with Necron.
Vivi’s mad that he was born and now has to die. He grows up when he accepts that he has to die. W…T…F?! Anyone not stuck in perpetual adolescents would nod their head in agreement, yet roll their eyes in exhaustion.
That’s the point. Consider: Vivi is a child. We’re not. We’re teens or adults. Vivi is learning an adult lesson as a child. And that’s a cruel fate.
Sidenote, why is Vivi the only child like being Black Mage? Or does he eventually grow?
But then you do feel bad cause he’s just a kid, after all. Learning a kid’s lesson.
You should feel bad, Aspilanti84.
Vivi’s revelation of his death was a call to action to celebrate what life he had. He still dies, but we all do, so let’s all make the best of it.
A great source of insight here.
Are dogs mad that they die sooner than humans?
WELL, ARE THEY??!!
Are humans mad that they die sooner than Koi fish?
HUH!!?? ANSWER ME!!! (WTF?!)
I don’t think Vivi knew quite what he was expecting and maybe in his angst, Vivi was missing the point of life.
Aspilanti84 seems to almost get it. They’re on the verge of just understanding, and then…
I guess the next paragraph will finally give Aspilanti84 the much needed redemption I desperately think they deserve.
…grow up, Vivi. You were designed to have a “short” (for a black mage) life. At least you got to have kids as a nine…year…old???…so that they could die the same death you did. Charming. And there were like, over six of them that he left behind. Vivi’s irresponsible. It’s not as if Vivi spared his ten kids that same fate for all we know.
And there it is, ladies and gentlemen. The callous, unsympathetic attitude of someone who just doesn’t care about the plight or emotions of other people. A true troll.
God, what is wrong with this person?
