Something I never want to hear again:

"I've played every Final Fantasy since Final Fantasy VII, so I know quality when I see it."

...I somehow doubt this person really wants to get into a fight about who's the biggest RPG player with me. God, I'm so tired of people screaming that FFVII is the greatest RPG ever when they haven't played a damn thing outside of Final Fantasy. It was a good game, I agree with that. But sheesh.

Yeah, I am long on the record as not even agreeing it was a good game. I bring this up only because last week marked the fourth or fifth time somebody made the pronouncement "Everybody who says they don't like FF7 is just attacking it because it's popular!", I responded with my reasons for not liking FF7, and they amended to "Everybody except Froborr who says they don't like FF7 is just attacking it because it's popular!"

Anyway, quality is entirely subjective. Even if everybody on the planet agrees that X game is good, it is still possible that there could be someone on another planet who thinks it's not, and there are no rational or empirical grounds on which to say that hypothetical person is wrong.

Also, them young'uns with their PS-whatevers and their devil-music don't know what real gaming is.

Every game is different. Every game has its merits and flaws. Therefore it is virtually impossible to judge games on anything but a personal basis.

I've played almost every final fantasy BEFORE FF7 and quit because I thought FF7 was stupid. I win!

You do win! I had to suffer all the way through FFVII-X before I realized "Hey, I really haven't enjoyed an FF since the SNES."
