OoT

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)
  • FF12,10, 6, 4, 3
  • 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...

EDIT**

Damn, forgot Kingdom Hearts 2!

Xenogears, most of DQ and ToS better than FF VII? FF IV/III/XII better? WHAT?

Look, FF VII is overrated, but it's still better than any of those.

Also, Chrono Trigger is superior to 99.9% of RPG's anyway, it's not a fair fight at all.

A difference in opinion, as I think Dragon Quest, FFVII, FFVI, and ToS are all better than the overrated Chrono Trigger. Chrono Triiger just an inferior Dragon Quest knock-off. It's easily the most overrated JRPG of all time.

You couldn't have said it better.

Final Fantasy VII. OoT was an ok game but nothing that I find amazing like a lot of people.

  • Grandia
  • XENOSAGA series 
  • Dark Cloud
  • Dark Chronicle
  • Rogue Galaxy 
  • Persona series
  • PSI, PSII, PSIV

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...



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

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.



It's close, as they're both the 2nd best titles in there respective series' released that gen.

I would give it to Final Fantasy VII though, because I'm bored of OoT being the undeserving winner of all these competitions.

Yeah, I suppose. But as Carl said, neither of them are the best in the gen, so...

Ah, OoT is still better IMO



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

FF7 eats OOT for breakfast, without salt. (but I hate salt in my food anyway...well beyond the amount already put in...blame Xen for this)

So FF7.

But like Mr T-tar said. Wind Waker and FF6 are better in the respective franchises!



All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

FF7.

It has also aged far better than OoT.



Bet with Dr.A.Peter.Nintendo that Super Mario Galaxy 2 won't sell 15 million copies up to six months after it's release, the winner will get Avatar control for a week and signature control for a month.

lololololol!

IX > VI! Big ugly clown Queen > Clown.



OoT in my opinion has aged extreamly well. It is one of the few games from that gen i can still sit down and play from begining to end.

FF7 was good for its time but not so much now. Hence the reason why everyone wants a remake for it.

 

OoT wins this one for me.

A better face-off would have been between

Chrono Trigger

Legend of Zeldz: OoT

Legend of gaia/time. Name changes depending on what side of the pond you live on



Nobody's perfect. I aint nobody!!!

Killzone 2. its not a fps. it a FIRST PERSON WAR SIMULATOR!!!! ..The true PLAYSTATION 3 launch date and market dominations is SEP 1st
