Final Fantasy VII, released in 1997, is a console RPG developed by Square. It is known for its complicated and unintelligible storyline as well as for the anatomy of its female character, Tifa.
Final Fantasy VII is a game that revolutionized the RPG world with its unrevolutionary battle system. It utilized the Active Time Battle system (first seen in Final Fantasy IV), the use of spells (first seen in every other RPG in existence), and the limit break system (first seen in every other final fantasy game, albeit under a different name). The world can be explored either by plane, by submarine, or by foot. Philosopher Socrates famously said "I hate all the travelling time and shit in Final Fantasy VII, it's pretty gay."
FFVII boasted polygons, not 2D sprites.
It made the game a lot more realistic-looking.
