Revisiting Final Fantasy VII: What Party Size is the Best Size?

1up - Final Fantasy VII wrought many changes on the RPG genre. The move from four to three characters wasn't as huge as some of the other changes, but it certainly invited its share of controversy. Now, with Final Fantasy VII about to be released on PC, it's worth revisiting the issue of party size. (Final Fantasy VII, PC, Retro)

One thing I've always hated in ALL rpgs is how you're limited in your party. You've got nine people, but only three of them can fight(in most games). And if they go down, it's game over.

A few games I've played have deviated from that. In Breath of Fire IV, your reserve members acted as a sort of support line behind your main party, sometimes healing your front line. And at least in FFXII, the game wasn't over when your current party was wiped out.

I want a game where, even if you're not controlling EVERYONE, the people you're NOT controlling are still actively supporting those directly in battle.
