Final Fantasy 7 Remake is almost here, this is why the original is so loved 1

And, in gaming terms, it’s akin to the way that many speak about another Square Enix IP – Kingdom Hearts.

It’s a game that came at a perfect, formative time in our lives which reshaped how we view games and what we expect of them.

This is underlined by how the launch of the FF7 back in the 90s was literally unlike anything gamers had ever seen before.

In this day and age it’s common to see games backed by huge marketing campaigns, with ads on TV, magazines, on billboards.

But back in the day this wasn’t commonplace, until the launch of FF7.

A staggering $ 40million was spent marketing Final Fantasy 7 around the world, with $ 20million in the US alone.

This marketing campaign was unlike anything gamers had ever seen before, positioning FF7 as a landmark, pop culture launch.

Which only helped build pre-launch excitement to fever pitch, and making the game’s release feel like a never-before-seen event in gaming.
