Chrono Trigger was better than FF7.

I do agree you would hard pressed to find a better game overall since 7... especially when you look at the other FF games. 8 and 10 were not all that great imo, 9 was ok, 12 was pretty good.



psn- tokila

add me, the more the merrier.

Is the question whether there will one day be another RPG featuring a blonde, chronically depressed young adult with a giant sword being joined by a rag tag group of heroes and anti-heroes on a quest to stop a villian hell bent on destroying the world rather than doing the rational thing and rule it instead? Nah. That's too unique.

That's about the best brief summation of FFVII I've seen.

I Like this one.. xD

FFVII is EPIC was thnx to Playstation hardware, FFVI wasn`t epic.
The presentation of FF7 is FAR more impressive and gameplay too.
Played both.

 

Right but you forgot that graphics do not matter in RPG genre. FF VI is far superior to VII.

You sad, sad man.  FFVI was FAR more epic than VII. 

This is like someone saying Transformers the Movie, or any Michael Bay piece of shit movie, is far more epic than the original Star Wars.  Just no.



      FF7 was epic because of presentation.
      FFVII ias better then FFVI in ALL ways. FFVII s like FFVI, BUT BETTER.
      The main character in FFVII are not blank, like in VI.

      FF7 is ANOTHER level.

      If you people don`t agree, say what FFVI do better, then FFVII. :)

      IMO,
      X > VII > VI > IV > V > VIII > XII > IX > III > II > I
      I don't think VII is a cheapass copy of VI... evolution is a better word.



       

       

       

       

       

      I've already played many rpgs that are better than ffvii. Not from the present gen though.

      FFxiii looks good but I think removal of random battles take A LOT of difficulty away from the game. Think about it, before it was scary to run into a marlboro because of a likely game over if unprepared (and you never could be fully prepared) due to the ridiculous number of status ailments caused by "bad breath" but now you can see a marlboro from across the map and plan accordingly. The ailments even work differently due to the real time battle system.

      Random battles suck balls. No random battles is a step in the right way for the series.

      Btw, Marlboro FTL :( Hate that thing! It's like impossible to kill lol.

      Random battles are kind of dated and only existed because back in the NES era, letting you go to battles optionally was not possible because of the limited hardware. I personally feel that random battles can get tedious especially if the encounter rate is high.

      EDIT:FFXII got rid of random encounters and was still a relatively difficult game.

       



      thank god we will never see a damn rpg like ff7 again...i hate the damn game with a passion
