Final Fantasy VII is role-playing video game created by Square for the PlayStation. The game is about a group of mercenaries against a sinister conglomerate. Released in 1997 with worldwide success, it helped mainstream Japanese Role Playing Games in the western market.
Flicking through the pages of EGM, Gamefan, Gamepro, you couldn’t miss an ad for Final Fantasy VII. It’s a masterpiece, no doubt. First game to bring tears to my eye and make a brother emotional.
Final Fantasy also introduced energy drinks to some gamers. I distinctly remember a few energy drink ads in random gaming magazines pushing these caffeine filled beverages with Final Fantasy. I was totally oblivious to energy drinks until this game.
Game broke new bounds in interactive, emotional story-telling.
