Final Fantasy X producer talks about the game's infamous laughing scene

The good kind of cheese

Sometimes you create a game with moments that define the experience, and stick with players for years to come. Sometimes those moments become memes, and that's exactly what happened with the 'laughing' scene in Final Fantasy X. Now that a new generation is getting to expereicne that laughing moment in a new way with Final Fantasy X HD Remaster, Game Informer decided to ask Producer Yoshinori Kitase about his feelings on the way the scene is regarded nowadays.

Even in the real world, actions taken by two people in a budding romance are generally embarrassing memories when you look back on them. I believe that this scene depicts that mental state very well. This scene of course is still made fun of by fans, but I imagine that it is because it greatly touched “something” in everyone’s heart for it to be such a memorable scene even after 18 years.

What annoys me is most people take the scene out of context. The laugh is supposed to be forced and fake and horrible, that's actually the ENTIRE point.

Yep. I actually love the scene. Its a very understandable scene. I believe its right after Auron tells Tidus that Sin is Jecht and due to this he's conflicted and upset by the news. Yuna notices his bad mood and tries to get him to smile and laugh through hard times. I think its a great scene, and the fact the other party members ask them if they lost their mind just adds humor to the whole situation, which on the outside is pretty strange.

I haven't played the game, I can assume many didn't either.

Exactly. I never understood the hate. It was supposed to be awkward.

"Let me tell you my story... My old man's a garbage person... I got one pant leg shorter than the other... I like to do my math underwater."

I think RMC's caption of "the right kind of cheese" sums it up. But I always felt iffy on Tidus' voice actor.
