In terms of reception, legacy, characters, gameplay (from what we've heard so far), music, designs, story, and just being overall memorable?

Or at least, in terms of how its shaping up to be?

I wouldn't say any of those options, but it has a chance. Of course it also has a chance to fail miserably too.

A very small chance that will surpass FFVII in popularity. The thing about FFVII's success was that it came out at the right place at the right time. Times are different. I doubt we see any game leaving an impact like FFVII did nor leave behind a huge legacy (and annoying diehard fanboys to boot).

FFXV could be a better game to someone but I highly doubt it will match FFVII in popularity. At most it could reach FFX's.

I doubt it will, either in quality or legacy.

Here's to hoping though.

Reception: maybe
Legacy: nah
Characters: If Stella and black-haired woman aren't playable then nope.
Gameplay: For sure.
Music: maybe
Designs: LOL FFXV already won this. Considering DoC and AC they're both pretty similar.
Story: Potentially.
Overall: Maybe.

How about eclipsing the lowly XIII first?

Never. I don't think it will ever have a successor in the next decade.

Pretty much this.

Given how inflated market expectations in the video game market is compared to 97, especially by Square's own standards? No.
