oh crap this makes sense.
so, this guy on youtube makes up these type of game theories as to how something happens in a game.
This theory he brought up here kinda makes aeris' death pretty silly or shocking.

I was re-listening the FF7 soundtrack. What a coincidence.

I hated Aerith, but in all seriousness the graphic impalement of a girl is different then some blood on the face.

Temple of the Ancients sucked. I never used Aeris for the whole game and then I am required to have her in my party. She had no materia and had shitty equips.

I never found her death sad at all. people over exaggerated, I just shrugged it off and continued.

I might be a hypocrite for saying this but damn, what a nerd!

Although he does presents his case in a good way, and make it at least seem somewhat believable. But it is still over analyzing details that the developers themselves probably didn't even pay much attention to.

That is what makes this youtuber so interesting. I myself watched this video a few weeks ago also when I first disovered the Game Theories series, and I have to say there hasn't been a single video in that series which I have been unimpressed with. His over analyzing is truly awe inspiring and endlessly amusing and interesting. More people need to put this much effort into their theories when they give them.

My favourite thing he does is the "How fast is Sonic the Hedgehog?" episode, where he uses Sonic 2006 to get an accurate height for Sonic by comparing him next to the human girl in a cutscene then using that height to span the sprite of Sonic 1 across the first level, seeing how long the level is as a result so he can take the speed run time for the level and calculate what Sonic's miles per second speed. Then does a similar thing in Sonic Unleashed using a real world building length as the distance on one of the levels based in a city.

It is that type of over analysing which makes his videos so amazing to watch, no one else goes into so much detail while at the same time still being interesting and fun.

I expected this to be about how Sephiroth's physical form was trapped in the north crater, but it ended up being much, much cooler. Awesome theory, subscribed.

It's obviously not canon but it was an interesting watch regardless. He certainly put a lot of thought into it so credit to him.

Alright, let's pretend this wasn't a creative oversight.

Nothing too shocking - I must have had 20-30 of those heart-restarting, organ-regenerating, blood-replenishing, bone or brain stem-restoring Phoenix Downs in my magical chest of wonders by that point in the game.

And did Cloud think to use one? Noooo...

The video was funny, and informative since I know virtually nothing about the human body short of how to blink, breath, and burp, but... come on, nothing "revelatory". Mistakes were made.

No it doesn't.

She died because everyone has fucking amnesia in cut-scenes, anyway her death was just convenient bullshit I hate forced stuff like that when the game it self has a instant revive tool that magical brings everyone back from the dead but is completely forgotten in cut-scene just because it would ruin the story it shouldn't be there in the first place then.

So every game should just have permadeath, yeah, that's a great idea.

Yes they all should why have a item that can bring people back if that item disappears from the world in cut-scenes, I love RPGs with perma-death on characters why love fallout"Although hate children being indestructible but a quick dl of mods can fix that" .
