Guys, help me out here. Me and a guy at work always get into this debate of what's the greatest game of all-time. He keeps insisting that FF7 for the Playstation 1 is the greatest game of all-time. I have not played it so I can't comment. Please help us out here to settle this once and for all.

No. Its one of the greatest if not the greatest RPGs of all time but its definately not the best game of all time and thats coming from someone who REALLY loved FF7.

Why can't you just agree to disagree considering this is based purely on opinion.
I loved Final Fantasy 7, but I wouldn't put say it was the greatest game of all time, but someone else will disagree, I can't say they are wrong because everyone has different tastes.

Its not even the greatest Final Fantasy game of all time. That would be FF3(6) on the SNES

no it is not.

the best thing about ff7 is that at the time, it had killer graphics.

otherwise as far as ff goes ff6 was the best one.

best game of all time is probably half life 2, in terms of singleplayer. half life 1 on other merits. wow is the most successful/profitable game of all time, cs is probably the most hardcore/best online fps game of all time, sc1 is probably the most hardcore/best online rts of all time. tony hawk pro skater 2 was probably the best extreme sports game of all time.

idk, it all depends on your criteria. and there are going to be games that are better in different genres and ways than others. there is no one single game that's the best in every way. and if there was some kind of mutant fps rpg rts world map turn based strat driving flight space sim mmo it would probably suck so bad and do everything in it so badly no one would play it.

i would say that that 7 is defiantly one of the best RPG games out there and still is, i just wish square-enix would hurry up and do a remake, but to be a traditional fan of FF i want the classic sprites back :D

Superman 64!!

No game will ever top that one.


Tales of Arcadia was WAY better than FF7.

Not even close IMO. Honestly, it all comes down to what type of games you enjoy. I like RPG games, but I never completed FF7 because I got bored with it, I honestly like Kingdom Hearts better than any of the FF games I played. That being said, I enjoy a good FPS more, UT IMHO was way better than FF7.

Greatest game of all time No, My favorite game yes, however there have been some games that as far as the game have been better, but the story will always ring true in my heart as the best i have played through, too bad they wont just remake it will the graphics of Advent Children (or the PS3 tech demo)

I enjoyed it immensely, but best of all time? No, not even close. It's not even the best Final Fantasy of all time. Hell, it's not even the best JRPG of that console generation in my humble opinion.

But like Corris said, the whole debate of which game is the "best of all time" completely comes down to opinion. If a person hates JRPGs, then absolutely nothing is going to convince them that Final Fantasy VII is a good game.

No. The greatest game of all time would be Ocarina of Time.

I voted no,

Reason is even though FF7 was really good, it really didnt change anything as a whole. Which game " of all time " should.

ATM that is still held by Commander Keen, Wolfenstein 3D, and Doom. They created a whole genere, The 3D FPS, they are the Grandfathers of shooters, and no mater how muh i like FF7, it cant take that crown

For Consoles Only, just look at mario, people that dont play games know about the Red Plumber, Cloud Strife, yea only people that play FF know about him
