|If I see another goddamn "VII" behind these final fantasies..|
When it first came out for the PSX - I was wow-ed with the graphics, the combat system, the characters, the cutscenes and the story. It pulled me in and kept me playing until I finished the game. Newcomers would come and ask me what games to get for the PSX. "Get FF7, man! Its awesome!", was my reply.
Square-Enix.. or back when they were known as Squaresoft (before they had sex with Enix), realised FF7's potential and popularity. Even after successful releases such as FF8, 9 and 10 (oh and it's god forsaken dress-up sequel) years later, they would still return to FF7 because of it's huge fanbase.
This is when they decided to milk the cow.
