I enjoyed that game, but other Zelda's are better...
As for FF7? I think it gets far too much credit than is deserved. I went back and tried to play it again about 5 months ago, and I just found it impossible to even get off the first disk. There's been FAR better RPG's than FF7, but there hasn't really been any better Action-Adventure games since OoT. Therefore OoT wins.
Name some RPG's you think are far better than FFVII. I, too, think there are better JRPG's than FFVII. But when it comes to linear story based RPG's, I think FFVII does it best. I'll always prefer JRPG's like DRagon Quest and the earlier FF's rather than the Kingdom Hearts/FFVII/FFX type.
Well, you've already named some. Here's some more:
- Chrono Trigger
- Dragon Quest (most the series)
- FFXII,X, VI, IV, III
- Xenogears, Xenoblade
- Tales of Symphonia
That's probably most of them. Like you say, it does a great job, but in the era of the PS2, there were just many better RPG's, sadly, many I didn't get a chance to play. FF7 sits right in the middle. Some are better, some are worse. But there's no denying it's a good game, but it isn't the 'best' like so many seem to claim...
Damn, forgot Kingdom Hearts 2!
You forgot yo mention
- FFV, FFVIII, FFIX
- GENSO SUIKODEN III, GENSO SUIKODEN V
- Tales of the Abyss
- XENOSAGA series
- Dark Cloud
- Dark Chronicle
- Rogue Galaxy
- Persona series
- PSI, PSII, PSIV
and meany more.
I apologise, I only put down the ones I've played and the ones I think are better
@Xen/Riot, yes, it's my opinion. If it wasn't, then there wouldn't be this thread at al would there
Go back and play FF7 now, and then see if it's still as good as you remember it...
I played and finished it 2 years ago, and it wasn't all that amazing even then. Still, better than the games I pointed out. Xenogears, for one, is an absolute travesty and abomination as far as gameplay goes. They just fucked it up. I'm not really defending FF VII, but it's still better than Xenogears and any DQ. And easily better than FF IV, there's no element in that game that is better done than FF VII. FF XII is very debateable, since that game does a lot of things extremely well. So does ToS.
