DualShock Nexus: On January 31, 1997; what would become one of the most celebrated RPG games in the world, released in Japan for the very first time.
It's the 31st in Japan so that's today... unless we're living in the past or something.
It's the 30th in America.
Can't believe that 15years flew by so fast.... I remember getting my PS1 for Christmas just like it was yesterday.
I was in the military when this game came out...time flies
15 years on...look how far FF has evolved
You mean De-evolved?
My first Final Fantasy. <3
I just played it for the first time in 2011 but it was certainly one of the best.
Maybe in 20yrs of its existence, Square-Enix will finally do a remake before it's too late for them. Their Final game before they go bankrupt. @fluffydelusions Tetsuya Nomura is still @ SE. Only he can bring back the vision and talent needed for it's development.
Problem is this isn't the the same Square that made this great game years ago...
If you look at some of the individual people a good part of them are still there. Like Kitase he was the one who directed FF 6 and 7. But it is still a shame that Sakaguchi left.
They're not going bankrupt anytime soon.
If there would be a remake, i think it'll be on the 20th anniversary..but that's a big IF. A remake can only be good if its done my the original creators through a new engine and put some new Nobua Uematsu soundtrack in it along with the old ones.
I remember finishing this game and moving onto Xenogears and from Xenogears to FF8. Squaresoft really made great games back then aww memories.
Remembered xenogears too. Its plot and themes are complex and controversial since its religous in nature.. they should remake that too..especially the parts on the 2nd disc.. I want to see ID and Weltall in 1080P glory
I remember that this trailer: http://youtu.be/aSLBC1Ab0bs... made me think that FF8 was the best FF game ever and I never even tried to play FF7 until last year. And thank god I got to play it because I was missing out on one of the greatest Jrpg games ever! XD
I still have the demo disc to FF8 kicken around my place I got out of an OPM magazine or I think it was EGM the day when magazines use to have the demo discs in them.
Wow. I feel old...
What a game it was. Finally got round to downloading VII, VIII & IX the other day seeing how cheap they are on the PS Store at the moment. Just hope sony releases an update for Vita to allow PSone downloads to work on it, would love to play those 3 on the go.
well Happy Birthday Final Fantasy VII i hope they remake you now.
Wow 15 years? I was selling this game in Target when I was 15. Time sure does fly.
I got my PlayStation in 97 :)
