Of course fans are furious about Final Fantasy VII's NFTs

Despite linear gamers snubbing NFTs, Square Enix is doubling down on its commitment to non-fungible tokens with the launch of two projects designed to support next year's Final Fantasy VII 25th anniversary. In a major show of confidence in its decision to invest in blockchain technology, Square Enix is bringing NFTs to its biggest and most prestigious games franchise, Final Fantasy VII.

Yet, fans aren't happy with the decision. They took to Twitter (where else?) to vent, with @confusionmydude typing: "Yo, why are you guys making NFTs? Especially FFVII ones? That goes against the messaging of the game and the way you’re packaging them somehow doesn’t fully jive with the logic of NFTs either. This is a product for no one. Do better."
