Fans of this revolutionary RPG are a peculiar bunch. Oddly, they tend to share the same opinions about each title as if they were all connected to the same brain. There's rarely an edition that FF fans will be split on, they either love it or hate it. Square Enix takes this into consideration as they always stick to the core features that their fans love and build upon them. For example, the game's turn-based system has gone through a number of changes throughout the years but never strays from it's original mechanic. Although the stories can be hit or miss at times, you have to just mark it up to experimentation. From it's 8-bit beginnings in the late 80s to today's graphically intense eye-candy, Final Fantasy VII is still championed as the crowd favorite. The people know what they want.
