I think it's one of the top FF games but not the best. Definitely think it's the most overrated.

I don't think it's the best Final Fantasy ever, but the game was released at the time where I was just getting exposed to the series (I was a Genesis guy as a kid) and to 32-bit hardware, and the game had an epic scale, grandiose music, great graphics (at the time), fun battles and an extremely interesting story. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced, and it was just so polished and memorable every step of the way. Some of that might be nostalgia talking, but it was a matter of right place, right time, right game. It might not be the best, but it's the most memorable for me.

It's the most revolutionary for sure. It has a great cast(unlike some of the newer Final fantasy's), a great story, good gameplay, replay value, quite possibly the most iconic villain in all of gaming and it has Vincent Valentine.

I didn't know Wesker was in FF7? Nyahahaha! Kidding... But yeah Sephiroth is the badass of all badasses.

Wow! I had almost the same setup... I bet you would've also gotten a Sega Saturn had it been in a solid competition with PS1. Come to think of it, FF7 was a big reason for Sega's (hardware) demise! WTF Square?!?!?!? You killed my fave company with one of my fave games!!!!

@ssejllenrad: I actually own a Sega Saturn to this day (I got mine a year or so after I got my PlayStation). Still bust it out from time to time to play some Daytona USA & Clockwork Knight.

DON'T JUDGE ME

FF7 was my first Final Fantasy after Final Fantasy III (which I believe is technically FF6 or something like that).The story line was a amazing and it held my interest the entire time.Most RPG's i've played that haven't been made by Square have failed to do that,especially ones that are turn based.I start playing and then half way through it becomes a job.Although it was turned based there were so many combinations of equipment you could use,it had the best "limit breaks" of any FF before it because at least this time you actually get to see it how it's really supposed to look.It had the best cast of any FF game IMO from the heroes to the villains.Cloud is my favorite leading hero of any FF game.I even liked the soundtrack in the game.Final Fantasy since hasn't had a cast that I really liked.FF13 is close.

Why is FFVII the greatest video game of all time? Easy, because it's just a perfect game.  
 
The gameplay is tremendous, and hasn't aged. The cast is the best of any game ever, with some really lovable characters who stick with you for decades after the release, and Cait Sith; one of the most loathe-worthy characters ever in a video game. Sure, the graphics need work, but if you only care about graphics in a game, then you suck. The music is perfect, the villain is the most iconic of any video game, the story is genuinely gripping and has the best "shock" moment ever.  
 
Then we have the journey of Cloud, the best VG character of all time, and it's nature as a beautiful Existential Bildungsroman.  
 
Simply put, FFVII is the best game ever, and the only one worthy of being considered a literary masterpiece.

Lol. The fantasy you have before you get a reality check. On topic: FF7 was the best because of Sephiroth. and Tifa.

I'm not big on the whole FF series but as far as FF VII goes. It was revolutionary. Games to this date are going after the model that game set. Engaging characters with a plot heavy gameplay and gorgeous cut scenes. IDK if it's the best, but it was definitely the most influential.

And that is why this is the best game ever...
