Game that singlehandedly caused the N64 to lose to the PlayStation and propelled Sony into their current position as the number one game company in sales. While most said that cartridges cost Nintendo the battle it wouldn't have stopped the FF fanboys from buying the hell out of FF7 if it came out on N64 (look how fast Super Mario 64 sold in Japan when it came out despite the $100 price tag it carried) It was a good game, though.
If Final Fantasy 7 came out for the N64 instead of the PS1 then the PS2 and X-Box wouldn't exist today and Sega would still make their own systems. Before Square announced that FF7 was PS exclusive even the Saturn was outselling it in Japan (which was being outsold by the N64 with only three games avalible at the time).

The first game in the Final Fantasy series to leaved the Nintendo console and the creation of "cut-scenes" (scenes where heavy computer graphics help embellish the story-line). This book is also inside of the Guiness Book of World records for its incredible sales.

Many people call this game over-rated. It's not over-rated, people are just sick of hearing how good it is or just rebels with a cause to start frivolous arguments. If people come past that they'll acknowledge how the side quests (adventures the party goes on that isn't a requirement of completing the game) really help garnish the story. In order to know the ENTIRE story, the side quests must be completed. Though the side quests are nearly infinite, it's a fantastic way for Final Fantasy gamers to know the entire history behind EACH character. This is rare in RPGs since the minority party members are usually in the background and nothing to help embellish their character.

Final Fantasy VII is arguibly the best game in it's class. Paying attention to the story-line and not negative comments on this will tell you this.

A subject of controversy between "old-school" and more recent FF fans. Those who started with FF7 almost invariably say that it is the best one in the series, while those who have played the earlier games mostly think that while FMV scenes and improved graphics are nice, they don't make the game. This latter group tends to consider FF7 to be, while good, highly overrated.
Final Fantasy 7 was a good game. I personally like FF6 better though.

A very popular video game that is unfortunately overrated by fanboys and fangirls alike. They obsess over the game like it's a gift from heaven or something when they don't realize that it is infact, just a game like Mario or Zelda and nothing to get excited about. They think Sephiroth is god and have delusions that he is in fact real and will come to fuck them in the ass.
Stupid fangirl: Oh Sephiroth I want your big cock in my mouth.
Intelligent individual: Sephiroth has no cock. People who wield long ass swords have no cock.

Stupid fanboy: OmG THy R lYk RemAKiNg FInAl FaNTasY 7!!!!!
Me: Nobody gives a shit.

Final Fantasy 7 is one of the most overrated games of all time. While overrated, Final Fantasy 7 is an extremely solid RPG, however, the fan base has made the game out to be FAR MORE than it actually is.

Also see: Dragonforce

This game follows the Adventures of a couple of kids as they set out to take down a evil corporation as well as a very Emo main villain. This game got so many stupid fanboys to have organisms, that a movie was made by Square called Advent Children. This movie, as you can probably guess, is also extremely overrated, the difference is that the movie isn't even any good.
Set "I played some Final Fantasy 7 last night, and it was a very enjoyable game i must say."

FF junkie "WTF are you talkin' bout dude!?! IT'S DA BEST GAME EVAR!!"

Set "Jesus man! Don't blow your fucking load over it!!"

An over exaggerated game that has too many fanboys. Some say is the best but is not rightfully so. Fanboys start with this game and because it is their first 3D FF game, think its godlike, which is far from the truth. You have a childish hero, a villian with confusing motivation, and a bunch of teenage drama. Fanboys need to get over it.
Fanboy: OMGZOR Final Fantasy 7 is the best!! <<<(Never played another FF game after VI)

Game in the series for which the terms "fanboy" and "fangirl" were coined.

Before FF7, the series was above criticism, and enjoyed a small, yet loyal fan base. When FF7 was released, all of a sudden, every wapanese child that suffered through high school found a new foothold and began fucking up the internet with their mindless drivel. Most of said children are now adults, have never played any other game in the series, and have moved on to other annoying activities such as cosplay.

FF7 is the worst game in the series. Still, 8 years after its release, my heart still yearns for the days when people that liked anime were completely ostracized, and sat alone at lunch, and the days when nobody had a computer to spew anime/FF7 nonsense all over the non-existent internet.
