Andrew Kliem, journalist: Seeing as we have a couple of people in the hated Zelda camp, I need to represent the better side of console RPGs. For many Gen Y people growing up, Final Fantasy was one of the seminal console series and VII was the pinnacle of that. It was the first fully three dimensional title in the series and was the most cinematic game of its time. The story, the mechanics, the characters were all out of this world. Anyone my age who didn't have a few nightmares involving Sephiroth and a wall of flames probably wasn't a real gamer. VII also featured what is regarded as the saddest moment in gaming history. I won't ruin anything for the sacrilegious few who haven't actually played it yet, but if any game is going to drag a few tears from your eyes it'll be this. Image credit: www.ffonline.com.
