    What game has been the "FFVII" of this generation?

    What video game, in your opinion, has been the Final Fantasy VII of this generation? What game will influence the future of video games and sets a standard for games in the future and next generation? Was there any games like that in this generation in your view?

    Three Games did it for me, one is a series of three games.

    1. Batman Arkham City
    2. LA Noire
    3. Assassin's Creed II, Brotherhood, and Revelations

    Honorary Mentions:
    Uncharted 2

    Currently Playing: Lumines Electronic Symphony (Vita)

    Hmm good question.

    Maybe it's just nostalgia, but I haven't really had many of those "FF7" moments. I think the closes so far has been MGS4, Mass Effect 2 and 3 (before the ending).

    I think the Uncharted series as a whole definitely did this as well.

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    Like others have said: none. But if I had to choose something with a gun to my head, I'd probably go with Red Dead Redemption. What a game.

    Interesting. I'll have to get into that series before the gen is over - heard a lot of good things about it

    I agree, nothing for me either. i will add that while there were some good games this gen., I found this gen of consoles very underwhelming including PC games starting from 2006 to now

    I don't think I've played a game this gen at that level. I'm not necessarily saying they're not good just not at that level.

    Batman Arkham City, Uncharted (entire series) are all up there. Metal Gear Solid 4 was epic though. It transcended generations of gaming.

    Ok I have to ask. What is the big deal with FF7? I tried playing two FF games and absolutely could not stand it. I know FF7 was ambitious for the time but since I'm not a fan of the series I don't understand the obsession with FF7.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    For many it was their first FF, first RPG, or first PlayStation game period. People hold it near and dear to their heart and overrate it without even giving it a second thought. Great game but a bit overrated in my opinion for the amount of mouth watering hype it receives. Like some people can't enjoy an FF game anymore because it's 'not as good as FFVII was' according to them.

    To answer the OP. It would have to be Metal Gear Solid 4 or Uncharted 2 and 3 for me. Those weren't the 'FFVII' this generation for me. They were the FFVIII or FFX this gen for me. I liked those FF games more than FFVII.

    No way! It isn't just nostalgia I think. FF7 is just a $#@!ing solid RPG. The story was epic, characters are all awesome, the world is expansive, the magic system is cool, the music is AMAZING and there are some of the coolest minigames in any RPG game (choco breeding for example). FF7 checked all the boxes. ;D

    OT: nothing has come close imo.

    Looking back it was nostalgia for me. I can't look at the game the same anymore when it's been surpassed not only within the FF franchise but by other games in general. The block characters are terrible. No voice overs. I just have a hard time getting immersed in it these days. The story and characters were good, i'll give you that. I just can't call it one of my top games anymore when i've played much better. I guess it was just never my favorite even though i played through it probably 10 times like everyone else.

    It's still an awesome game though. That's the beauty of the Final Fantasy series. Even your least favorite games within the franchise are still great games. Everyone has their favorite. For me it's FFX and FFVIII.

    these are all phenomenal games but we won't accept them as ffvii equals until by 2025 because by then we'll feel nostalgic about this gen

    Well, let's see.

    FFVII was met both with critical and commercial acclaim. It caused many to buy a console they otherwise wouldn't. It took a previously successful franchise and single-handedly launched it into stratospheric levels of success. This success spawned many follow-ups, some decent, some terrible, some great -- all of which are still contested. The game is looked back upon with favor by some, and disdain by others. Some claim it to be worthy of its success, while others say it is an overrated piece of $#@!. There is only one game this generation that meets all of these critera.

    So without further ado, the FFVII of this generation: Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

    Any other answer is wrong.

    MGS4: the fact that you're even given a chance to play the 'old' way enforces the notion of evolution. ie PS1 section on Shadow Moses.

    romancing your nostalgia doesn't do much as it goes out the window when there is a direct comparison of how much better the game is this gen.
    hyperbole doesn't do me any justice, i cant think of a game i rate so highly across any platform, or generation.

    MGS4= top game ever! i don't see it being topped.

    Uncharted 2 & Valkyria Chronicles would be somewhere around there also.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

    Jokes aside, I can't think of any games that would fit your description. I really enjoyed Uncharted 2 and Deus Ex: Human Revolution the most but I wouldn't say they accomplished as much as Final Fantasy VII did back then.

    Well ... I'd say MGS4 for sure. Uncharted games got close, but not quite.

    I've played many good games this gen, just no games that like "touches your heart" so to speak.

    I'm assuming that the OP is saying which game has created a significant impact for you just like how VII did for millions. To me, this generation was easily Uncharted 2. I just couldn't believe what Naughty Dog had shown on E3 and the satisfying impression I had after playing it.

    FF7 was a good solid rpg. No denying that, but its still doesn't hold a candle to 6 (+3 in the us) IMHO.....

    While I feel it was a great game, I still think it is hyped up more then it should be. Mainly as other stated, It being for many gamers their first FF or RPG in general swell as it being the first FF using 3d polygons and being on the best selling console ever definitely helped matters.
    PCs are very much like Air Conditioners.
    They both become utterly useless once you start to open up Windows....
