During Chapter 16 of the game - The Belly of the Beast, at some point you will be able to choose how to reach the top of the Shinra building. You can use the fast elevator or try to climb the stairs. Which choice is better? In this section of our guide to FF VII Remake we answer this question.
In this case, the choice doesn't have any impact on the plot. Taking the stairs is a troublesome task because you have to run for almost 10 minutes to the top. Your character will start moving at a lively pace and run the stairs. However, with the next floors you will start moving slower and slower. There's going to be some funny dialogue between the team members. The elevator, on the other hand, is a safe and quick choice - you'll quickly get to the top, have another dialogue and save some time.
