Cloud or Sephiroth?

This is a discussion on Cloud or Sephiroth? within the A Brief History of Cprogramming.com forums, part of the Community Boards category; I was thinking about this the other day. Who would you rather be -- Cloud or Sephiroth?...

    Neither, though Sephiroth's hair is quite trendy.

    I think so - I've never played the games, but I remember people who had talking about a "Cloud" character. Doesn't he have a gigantic sword bigger than him? If so, I'd rather be him .
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.

    It still amuse me how he can wield a sword like that without getting tired in a few swings.

    We're talking about a superhero and a supervillian here. They wield magic and die and are brought back to live by potions and magic; yet what you find least believable is that he can wield his own sword?

    They say that if you play a Windows Install CD backwords, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing; play it forward and it installs Windows.

    should I?
    Depends do you like spending half of the 60+ hours most of them take to beat watching cutsceens? Played the orginal Final Fantasy and I think FFII. Played 7 and some of 8 but got annoyed with all the cutsceens.
