Hmm, what are you referring to by that? I'll admit VII came out during the height of my RPG-playing days, and so I haven't had the chance to play
all that many recent RPG's. (Nonetheless, I firmly believe VII is the best of all the FF's. I have kept up with those, and felt it's been slowly
downhill ever since.)
FFVII is the most overrated RPG I have ever played, don't get me wrong I think it's a great game but doesn't deserve the title of best RPG ever....
You can flame me all you want but I prefer FFX over FFVII any day of the week... I would have to say Oblivion is a tough one to beat, but I'm
waiting on the next Elder Scrolls to see if it can be beaten ( I hope so)...
Ah, it seems people either think FFVII is the best RPG or they think it's overrated. Which kinds of makes sense. I'd also have to rank Everquest
pretty close to FFVII--far more addicting, just as fun and larger in scope, though not as aesthetic.
I'm going backwards in time to play them all. I've made a list a few pages back. Don't get me wrong, FFVII is up there, but it doesn't touch some of
the overlooked titles because of how much games overshadow others in the market.
Here's an a example of the of the very best. It's one of those games that 'expands peoples perspectives' in a positive sense. Only those who
have had the privileged to play it would know. Try not to read the comments in the video. they might spoil something.

If you look carefully at the two titles and how it's constructed "ffx and ffvii", 7 is a much more intuitively constructed piece of work and
certainly deserves praise. "best RPG ever" is usually the term used by people who started out with FF7. As good as it is, I don't blame them. But
i've played better after much exploration, but only a few that are.
Probably because the platforming was kind of broken at the tower part.
In any case, the stories memorizing enough to raise the standard of expectations for veteran gamers, and I regret having underestimated for so
If your looking for modern RPGs to touch the PS1-2 era games, NIER is the closest to that kind of game within the past year. its one of this
generations best RPG.
im gonna say ffVII, i dont usually like to admit it, as i usually get called a 'fanboy' etc. but i didnt even know what an 'rpg' was until i
played that game. and becoming hooked on rpg's since that game.i still think it was one of the best ive played.
also dark chronicle (ps2) deffinatly deserves a mention.
Oh most definitely. Yasunori Mitsuda is a legend in the gaming music industry, as he has worked on numerous titles. All of which have outstanding
soundtracks such as chrono cross.
Sadly, I cannot say the same for games today. They are all wonderful in the respect that they actually use orchestras and w/e. But you can't compare
the soul soundtracks in todays game have in comparison with an exception of a few games like NIER, which uses a made up language alltogether. hear it
dont read the comments, serious spoilers.
In any case, pick up any one of the following:
Xenogears (which I recommended the most), Xenosaga, NIER, 9 doors 9 hours 9 people "999" (NDS), Legacy of Kain, Suikoden 2, FF6&4 (considered the
best among FF veterans), Planescape torment (western Rpg)..
agh too many to name but if your looking for rpgs that take it back to the peak of its era, these are where its at.

1. World of Warcraft. The seemless world is just awsomeness. So many things you can do its just overwhelming.
2. Never Winter Nights + addons D&D rules just great.

4. Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura
Showing my age here a bit but some of my favorites:
1. Phantasy Star II - Sega Genesis (First one to actually kill off a main character mid game)
2. Legend of Zelda - NES
3. Legend of Zelda II - NES (Not many people liked this game but I thought it was great as it was one of the first
4. Suikoden - Sony Playstation
5. D&D Treasure of Tarmin - Intellivision (Way ahead of its time as it was essentially the first "First Person
