I use amazon.com when shopping for anything myself. It's looking very expensive to buy a copy of FF7. Being out of print and the fact that Gamestop is no longer taking trade-ins for PS you are looking at about 60+ dollars for the game based on it's popularity. There are even sealed copies for a couple hundred.

Hey random sorry but have you ever played final fantasy vii and if so what did you think and do you think they will remake the game?

I have played FFVII and personally did not think it is worth all the hype it gets. To me it was a great game, nice plot, and good battle system but in my opinion it is not God's gift to RPG's. (Am going to get shot for this one XD). Squeinx may remake the game but I would not hold my breath. Before you invest all the money into buying your own copy I would borrow someones copy and play it for yourself. Make your own decision of the game.

Yeah, go to places like Fry's Electronics, Target, or Wal-Mart.. you know, places that still stock Greatest Hits versions of PSone games. You're better off getting a copy at places like those than more uhh, obvious places like GameStop or Best Buy. If there's a Fry's near you, that's an especially good option, as I've found so many older, obscure games there. Another alternative would be a mom & pop game shop, one that sells older new and used games. You never know what treasures you'll find there.

But speaking realistically, you'll probably find FFVII terribly overrated, playing it 10 years after its release. I love the game, but I bought it when it came out. The reason it gets so much credit is because it's really what started the RPG craze for a lot of westerners. Games like FFIII/VI and Secret of Mana had a niche following in the Super Nintendo days, but it wasn't until Square went Sony and got their marketting to back it up that RPGs got big in the US and Europe. Don't get me wrong, the story and characters are great, and if you've seen Advent Children or played Dirge of Cerberus, you'd probably be interested in it so you can get the back story on the characters. Just don't expect this revolutionary experience that'll blow you away. It's pretty outdated by today's standards. You really had to be there. But it is a great game.
