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

It's all relative. If you hate RPGs then you're gonna hate FF7 regardless. Personally I loved the game and it does rank up there as one of the best. You should give it a go, I doubt you'll come away thinking you've been robbed of your time :)

Final Fantasy 7 was one of the games that shifted from the old style Final Fantasy to the new style Final Fantasy where modern technology shows up.
In addition this was the 1st time they killed a main character as part of the plot in a Final Fantasy series.

I think it's a great game, but don't think it's the "greatest" game.

Too bad the "old" style was so much better :/

Not a chance.

Final Fantasy 3/6 was the best of the series.

So you can't accept your coworkers opinion and come to Neowin to ask what ours is? lol :p

Seriously tho there is no right or wrong answer. As you've seen above some believe FF6 is the best FF of all time but that is just opinion as well. Ocarina of Time? Opinion. I'm not gonna vote nor state what I believe, because it doesn't mean anything.

Nope, while it was a game I've put over 100 + hours into it, it does have it flaws! It would be in maybe my top ten games of all time, but it's not the greatest.

It all depends whether you played it when it first came out or years later because your friends told you about it.

For me it was my first epic RPG and the shock of a main character dying during an entirely emotional and compelling storyline makes it my personal favourite.

However if you're coming to it late you're less likely to have appreciated the ground breaking aspects of the storyline.

It's like someone who played Half-Life for the first time today - they'd wonder what the fuss was about because all those original ideas have been copied by other games.

The first two are better and harder.

FF7? No i don't believe it's the best game of all time. That honor clearly goes to FFXIII.

I voted no, but it probably IS my favourite game of all time.
I think alot of it has to do with your age when you play. I was only 12-13 playing Ocarina of Time and FF13 they were my first truely EPIC adventures and I think no matter what game I play no days no matter how good I won't remember it as fondly as games from that era as that was the time when things were still new and awesome to me.

Reading this thread reminds me I do gotta get round to playing through ff6 on my dingoo, have yet to have played it...
