Unpopular opinion time!

The death of Aeris is a garden-variety fridging that is played for every ounce of manipulative bathos that could be wrung out of it, yet still rings utterly hollow. Also, it kills off the only remotely interesting or likeable character in the cast, solely to give Spikehair McPopeyeArms something to angst about since the game is barely half over and they’ve already run out of ways to cover for his complete lack of a personality.
