    For those who don't know, it came out on windows a long time ago, but it barely works on current systems without heavy modding.

    I accept your opinion as fact and assume you a credible spokesperson for not only all gamers, but also the universe in all matters gaming.

    Thusly, it is true that Final Fantasy VII is the most overrated game ever in existence.



    Also, cool news. I always appreciated the upscaled graphics from the modding community and therefore enjoyed my PC port more than the original back in the day.

    Huhh.... What's the "Character Booster" button? Looks like it can max your HP/MP/Gil instantaneously with a single button press... It's something like a "super-ultra n00b mode cheat" or what?

    Also... NEED SCREENSHOTZ PLZ (look at the system requirements, they're way too high for it to be just a port)

    This.
    Just made my day.
    Now I won't have to use PCSX to play it on my PC, instead I'll have an official copy!

    There's alreadly a PC version of this game, but as our friend brandonspikes said it needs a software modding experience and patient.

    I don't mind the Character Boost button, if you don't like it, just don't use it.

    Never played FF VII, heard many good things about it, will give it a try. Will be massively overrated probably, but hey, you never know.

    Maybe they actually improved the pre-rendered backgrounds and upped the FMVs to at least 720p.
    Then those minimum specs would actually make sense.
    I also hope the BGM isn't some half-assed MIDI and at least changed to ogg.

    ff7 from the pc has been ported to the pc

    i cant tire of playing this game. this game is like an overrated old actor. very few games were this good and esp this was one of the first of its kind on the ps1. its still a great game but not as good as ppl claim it to be.

    i'd give it 9.5/10 but ppl seem to push it to 12/10.

    its never too bad to have too many final fantasies.

    I would be much happier for an HD remake, just a straight re release isnt what this game deserves.


    I did lol at the trailer. All of the adjectives they used to describe the story. The only one i really felt is one they didnt even mention; confusion lol.I mean i was happy to play it, but i was also really ready for it to be over.
    I have never been that confused at the end of a game lol

    Overrated, maybe, but you gotta admit, this game has an amazing soundtrack.

    But keep in mind that it's not nearly as overrated as Call of Duty, Modern Warfare or the Fallout series.

    Here's hoping it's for the Americas, too.
