Same here, although I'm sure people understand I do enjoy FF7. I just prefer not consider it the holy grail of gaming series that still has loads of potential.
Yes, although I'm a huge fan of the characters.I'm not sure why its gotten so much attention. I suppose the game just becamme iconic over time. I believe the only reasons 7 has gotten so much attention was because it was the first 3D FF game.
Also, After the new millennium began, Yoshinori Kitase and Tetsuya Nomura were approached and asked for a game that could be expanded across multiple platforms and mediums. Final Fantasy VII was chosen, which led to the creation of the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII. To date, the compilation includes two mobile phone games, one sequel game, one prequel game, one full-length CGI film, an OVA, and several short novellas...According to remarks from Kitase, the Compilation will continue to be expanded upon, and will conclude on the original game's 20th anniversary.
If this is true, we still have a few years until that 20th anniversary. We could have more FF7 content on the new gen of consoles.
