      Why is FF7 considered better than FF6?

      many reasons, materia is more engaging than learning spells because it allows for combos and allows you to switch characters whilst retaining what you've worked for. it also doesn't split your party up and make you play shit sections hardly anyone likes that slows the game to a halt until you get your party back together.
      plus advancement in technology, equipping different weapons actually looks different. 99% of the weapons change nothing in 6 unless you equip an atma blade or something, it just looks the same anyway. the world was better to explore due to being a 3d overworld so it has depth and not snes parallax cancer or whatever. music was better mostly, and story was better ultimately because at least the "villain wants to be mad and rule the world" had lore behind it, jenova being an alien, lifestream, planet having its own will etc, rather than that just being the end of it. kefkas shit doesn't have lore behind it, goddess statues yadda yadda i fuck them up so now i rule, no reason i just wanna.

    it's more successful and well known due to its relatively complex narrative and plot

      PS1 Babies is why

      It's almost the exact plot of VI but Dieselpunk instead of Steampunk.

        we've had this discussion before and no pertinent similarities could be made
        feel free to try though

    ff7 has a bit of a tighter and more interesting story. ff6 meanders around a lot with side characters and the lack of a true main character damages the narrative somewhat

      >lack of main
      ???
      It seemed like locke and celes were main together. not really all that different from cloud and aerith.

      what do you mean by no main?

        except when edgar is front and centre for ages, or when terra is your defacto main character and who the plot revolves around
        it's pretty massively different anon
        locke was never the main character, and if he was meant to be he's a fairly shitty attempt at one

          wait which one was esper?
          it's been awhile...

          edgar did take up a bit of time to be not a main, but the dynamic between the thief and the "human" esper was there.

          at worst the esper was the main

            terra was the esper, and who the game opens with as your playable character. she should have been the main.
            locke and terra do not have a dynamic though, lockes dynamic is with celes mostly. the games a mess in terms of having a real lead, it tries to make too many of them the lead and ultimately none of them actually are and so nobody cares about any of them as much as they should

        what a weird evaluation as celes isn't remotely the other main character, terra is

        there's no main. there are 2 main characters. you want to have 1 main character. that's why it's the main character. that is what the word main means.

      >according to 15 lists, shenmue is the best game of all time

      what a useful metric that reflects real-world sentiment.

      in reality, ff7 is substantially more popular and probably more respected than ff6. period.

    FF7 got way more hype. Was basically used to sell a brand new console and media format. It was 3d, had full FMV cutscenes, was more 'cool', less high fantasy. Battle screen was more dynamic. The opening area was a huge fucking city you wander through for ages before even beginning to explore the wider world. One of the girls had big tits, especially in the cutscenes.
    FF6, on the other hand, was the last game of the series on an old system, and also the old style of FF games, not too dissimilar from the ones before it. It didn't make any huge leaps in design or innovation from 4 or 5. It didn't have a well defined protagonist, and while its villain did stand up well against Sephiroth as far as being memorable, kids will pick the cool guy with the 6 foot sword and the leather coat over a dancing clown who turns into Jesus every time.

      that's actually wrong as FF6 was objectively the best looking video game with the best music for a console when it came out

        Not huge leaps though. It was the FF X-2 to 4/5's FFX. A bit more polish, some slight improvements in graphics, but not all that different. It used the same battle screen and general gameplay mechanics.

          you don't see it as a huge leap retrospectively, we did at the time, it was the largest cart by far and that was a leap, the graphic design of the pixel art was a leap, etc

          it's seen as an iterative improvement by you in today's eyes, was not so back then. ff7 was obviously a bigger leap but that was 4 years later almost

    I don't know that it's considered better.
    I think VI is still considered the king by a short margin between the 2, it's just that VII came out with the PS1 and a whole sensational jump to 3D for videogames, while VI came out towards the end of the SNES era and not as many people got a chance to play it.

    In other words, it's just that people don't really know about VI.

        because this sd3 style has soul. or maybe its tales of phantasia style. either way that also had soul
        ff6 style doesn't actually have much soul to it at all, whilst sd3 was fucking overflowing with it

    More people played it
    7 got a touch overrated, despite still being good, because it was one of the first JRPGs a lot of people played
    Hipsters relying on that fact gave 6 a massively overinflated reputation to the point that, over time, it became even more overrated than 7
