If the first one was good then I'm gonna keep buying the sequels.

Even if they totally screw up the franchise (DMC, COD, BF4) I still will play or buy them hoping they fix things.

So far I have never given up totally on a franchise.

*Correction I No longer play Madden LMAO!

No, even today The Legend of Zelda: A link to the Past, Final Fantasy 6, Metal Gear Solid 3, Shadow of the Colossus, Castlevania, Megaman 2, and (well not yet but I'm sure it will) The Last of Us hold up both visually and the stories are amazing. I've gone back and play games that I thought were fun but then realized they weren't so great.

Pong is still the greatest game ever. I don't see why we needed any more game.

people seem hung up on FFVII for some reason, so yes... nostalgia has an unfortunate impact on people's favourite game selections.

I played FFVII for the first time in 2012 when I was twenty-three. It is one of the best games I have ever played. It dropped my jaw several times. In my personal experience, nostalgia had not a bit of relevance.

FFVII is just that damn good.
