What's the big fascination with FFVII? Why do people think that this is the best of the series? Just because of Sephiroth and his big sword? Cloud and his big sword? Vicent, or Tifa's huge tracks of land Honestly the story is good, but not that great. I think FFVI and FFX had a much more involved and better story. Also there are more and cooler characters in 6 like Shadow, Cyan, Setzer. The materia system was ok, but too much customization leaves less defined characters. I think FFX got it right with the sphere grid. No real experience and smaller gradual changes. And to those people who would say because of Tifa's breasts, Lulu's are better.
