The first of the "new-school" Final Fantasy games. Graphics took precedence over character development. Instead of having interesting and humorous characters, you had Shakey. I mean Cloud, but Shakey was a better name for him, since all he really did was shake violently for no reason.
A lot of people raised on the PS think this is the best FF Game ever, and refuse to try 4 or 6 because the graphics aren't good enough for them. However, those raised on 1-6 do usually still play later ones.
PS kid: Final Fantasy 7 is the best game ever!!!1 omg materia sephiroth so cool and dark and omg omg!!!
Me: yeah, have you ever heard of kefka?
PS kid: Who? what?
Me: KEFKA! the best villian ever.
PS kid: from what game?
ME: Final Fantasy Six!
PS kid: Ew, i saw my friend play that once. the graphics were so bad.
ME: No, they were probably the best graphics for the SNES at the time... really good for what the system could do.
PS Kid: Nintendo? That's for babies. I play Playstation! I'm a big boy!
