am i the only one who played "star ocean the second story"? that game was way better than FF7 in my opinion...and the graphics were way better..honestly the graphics on FF7 were crap...so i dont know wat u mean by pushing the bounderies of the PS1...especially since FF7 came out in the beginning of the PS1's lifespan

Since when did FFVII have an intricate combat system? Somebody needs to play some Atlus games, or heck, even Pokemon.

Polite conversation should never include Politics, Religion or what constitutes an RPG.
Playing a game for it's story is like watching porn for it's story.

Then I remember that FF7 it's a REALLY overrated game, not a bad one, a overrated one. We have so many amazing games nowdays, Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne, Persona 3, FF10, Dragon's Dogma, The World Ends With You, etc..
And it's kinda funny you talk about graphics, because I think that's one of the main reasons that made the game so overrated and such a success.
The plot it's not that great (Crisis Core really improved it, now, THAT'S a amazing game), it's a ok one.
Don't get me wrong, I do love FF7, but it wasn't that good.


WORD SON!!!!!

Thank you. I'm not a big fan of Pokemon anymore, but yeah that and the stuff Atlus makes are just fun. FF VII was a good game. A good RPG. But it's not the only good RPG. It's just super popular. There's been games that came after this that blew it away. I don't have a favorite RPG, because there's so many great ones. Megaten, Tales, etc.

Actually as far as revolutionary goes.. I would say something like Pokemon or Monster Rancher was a lot more revolutionary... they introduced people not only to JRPG's in general but a whole new breed of them.. sorry Good Graphics and FMV with good story.. and Lego Characters and mini game bonanza does not make a revolutionary game. I mean really if you stop and think about it it was basically a Lego FF meets good FMV/Background games with a party game mixed in...

There's one key thing that people need to remember:

"Revolutionary" and "influential" are two different things. The former is something that is decidedly different (or at least such an aspect) than its predecessors. The latter means that it was the catalyst for change.

FF7 is very influential in what it did for JRPG industry, and I'm sure for the overall video game industry in America. Thanks in part to that game, we got many more JRPGs pouring into the market.

However, to call it revolutionary is a stretch. The most that you could call it revolutionary for was the way it brought pre-rendered cutscenes into the Final Fantasy franchise. Most people who played the game all those years ago still remember the gorgeous cinematic where the camera started on simple street, then slowly panned out to reveal a rather large and impressive (for the time) shot of Midgar. At the very least, in Final Fantasy, something like that hadn't been seen before in quite that way.

But beyond that, there really isn't much revolutionary about it; though, it still remains one of the most influential games of all time.

Skyrim was more revolutionary. EVERYONE who was anyone was playing Skyrim, and it had that kind of water cooler feel where you could talk about it with friends and co workers for months. You JR[PG kids don't talk about what games you play because other people would think of you as weirdo outcasts.
