It isn’t usually examined or discussed even by its creators as social commentary. However, when looking deeper one finds a disquieting, accurate picture of a world brought to the brink of ruin by maladies all too familiar, and frequently inching ever closer to home. Here are five reasons Final Fantasy VII is not only a profound social statement from it’s time, but might be more relevant now than it ever was. (Culture, Final Fantasy VII)

Well, there's been two sequels and neither of them expanded on those themes. And if that hinted-at sequel to Dirge of Cerberus ever happens, it'll probably be much of the same. :(
