Final Fantasy VII was one of the most groundbreaking videogames of the ’90s. Costing over $40 million to create, the project was a significant gamble for Japanese videogame developer Square.

I'm not a fan of the game, but a lot of people are and I'm sure this will do very well.

I may be in the minority as far as this forum is concerned. I love Final Fantasy VII. It was easily one of the most important games of my youth and shaped my expectations for years to come.

Yeah it's a hugely popular game and Zap and me are definitely in the minority.

I tried the demo of it when it came out but I wasn't huge into RPGs at the time and the random battles were just too much for me. Trying to escape that building and every 5 seconds you would have to fight another battle and it annoyed me so much I didn't buy the game.

After that I slowly started playing a lot more RPGs, to the point where it's now my favourite genre so I did try to play it again on the PSP years later but I just couldn't get into it. Had to be there at the time I guess.
