Final Fantasy has existed since the 1980s. It has proved to be one of the longest running video-game series of all time, along the likes of: Mario; Zelda; Sonic; Pokemon; and Grand Theft Auto. In some ways, FFVII is similar to the video-game Leisure Suit Larry...
In terms of numbers, we are now up nearly as far as Final Fantasy XVI (16). The number 16 does not include spin-offs and sequels. For example: there is Final Fantasy IV, Final Fantasy IV The After Years; Final Fantasy X, and Final Fantasy X-2; Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Lightning Returns.
The numbering system is called Roman Numerals. FF30 (Final Fantasy XXX)?
Final Fantasy XI and Final Fantasy XIV are both online games. Final Fantasy VII exists in many ways.
I've been playing FFVII on and off since my friend Zein gave me the original PlayStation 1 game for my 14th birthday in 1998, mastering most aspects of the gameplay.
Superficially, Final Fantasy video games are somewhat similar to other epic stories; Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, The Hobbit, even Star Wars. But if any of those stories are described as epical, then Final Fantasy games are epical on a whole another level.
Future Generations will see Lord of the Rings as myth and Harry Potter as legend; but the Final Fantasy series will be seen as some of the greatest artwork of all time. It will be a large part of a new Renaissance and dawning for the 3rd Millennium, of which I hope to take part in. For more, please visit my About me Page.
Final Fantasy VII is the story of how Cloud Strife, a mercenary in the slums, becomes aware of threats to the Planet's future and confronts those threats, meeting a number of colorful friends and foes along the way. FFVII features an intricate, highly customisable battle system; cross-dressing; submarines and space rockets alongside swords, magic and dragons; as well as an anti-hero in the form of Cloud who is always up for some fun even if he's not too sure what's going on; and Sephiroth, an anti-villain I can almost sympathise with at times despite him being hell-bent on destroying the Planet.

The Remake & Other Newer Final Fantasy VII Games
A Remake of Final Fantasy VII was released on April 10th, 2020 A.D. for the PlayStation 4. I am currently slowly playing thru.
Final Fantasy VII Intergrade, an expanded version of the FFVII Remake, is already available on PlayStation 5; and I find it very likely that the Remake will eventually appear on Nintendo and Microsoft home consoles. Intergrade is also now available on Steam for PC as of this year (2022).
What is of quite heavy interest is that another game named "Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis" is coming to smartphones - a kind of "alternative Remake" truer to the original game. It looks very interesting to me, and I would encourage you to check it out on YouTube. Apparently it will cover all parts of the original "Compilation of Final Fantasy VII" - Before Crisis, Crisis Core, Final Fantasy VII, Dirge of Cerberus, and Advent Children.
A remade version of the game Crisis Core, originally for PSP, is coming to PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Steam on PC. It is expected Winter 2022, and will be named Crisis Core Reunion.
Square Enix have also announced the 2nd Part of the console re-making of the original game. It will be called "Final Fantasy VII Rebirth", and is due to release for PlayStation 5 Winter 2022. It has also been confirmed that the complete remake will be in 3 parts, covering Remake, Rebirth and an as yet untitled final part.
The most disappointing aspect of the PS5 full reconstruction of the World Map part of the original FFVII, to me, is that it looks like we're not getting a full open planet at all (I hope I'm wrong). I would settle for a sandbox design like FFXV (which I really enjoyed, a lot more than Oblivion or Skyrim, 2 other sandbox RPGs). In fact it is quite likely we will at least see a sandbox environment, as Square Enix have said "Cloud will be running around a lot of nature" in the game. I just find it really irritating because if you go back as far as FFIV, or FFV (which I personally consider the most under-rated out of every Final Fantasy, because the "Job" battle system was fantastic); you get a full open planet. FFIV even featured 3 different airships, while FFV included a submarine...
