Final Fantasy VII On PC

The RPG classic has finally made it to PC WITHOUT the need for a emulator!

That's right folks, as of now you can purchase the Square classic Final Fantasy VII for the PC for $11.99.I will not deny that that this one sort of caught me off gaurd when logging onto Steam today to see this classic suddenly being for sale on the PC.  Buying this for the umpteenth time might not appeal to most but the game comes with some new knick knacks. var adunit_index = 4000; if ((adunit_index != 1000 & adunit_index != 1001) || (adunit_index == 1000 && device_category != 'MOBILE') || (adunit_index == 1001 && device_category == 'MOBILE')) { if (active_ad_units[adunit_index] != undefined) { console.log('Dyn Unit Legacy', active_ad_units[adunit_index], adunit_index); googletag.cmd.push(function () { var adunit_index = 4000; if (typeof(pubwise) != 'undefined' & pubwise.enabled === true) { console.log('Dyn PW'); pwpbjs.que.push(function() { pubwiseLazyLoad([gptadslots[adunit_index]], true); }); } else { console.log('Dyn Direct'); googletag.display('div-sjr-4000'); googletag.pubads().refresh([gptadslots[adunit_index]]); } //googletag.pubads().refresh([gptadslots[4000]]); }); } } Achievements- For Steam and does that surprise anyone? Cloud Saves- I don't know of a situation where I need to play this on multiple computers but someone obviously will!  Also, cloud saves... 'Cloud' saves... Yup. Character Booster-  Pay money for in game stuff HP, MP and Gil. PC optimization Not really sure how much this can be optimized for PC.  Still looks the same but just on the PC. Aside from the Pay-to-win aspect, this seems ok.  It is a classic game getting brought back for the PC gamers to enjoy... Even though you can get it on any Playstation emulator and most likely they have.I see some potential if they actually allow us to get at the files such as models and maybe coding--you could do a lot of awesome stuff.  Know how everyone wants that updated version for current consoles to come out?  What if you could simply remodel the game and replace the old models with new ones?I have no answers to this but would love to know if this is possible.  It being not even a day old at the moment means people are probably poking at it at the moment.  Most likely in the next week we or so we will get our first Aerith and Tifa nude mods.THANK GOD FOR THE INTERNET!

    I'm so tempted to pick this up, it was one of the hallmark games of my childhood. I'm not sure I'm prepared to spend the next month of my life on it, though. Too bad they didn't do a graphical update on the models.

    I was actually writing an article on this earlier, and then I decided not to.

    nah i didnt know what all to put in it, because the pc version's been around forever. I played it back in 2007/2008 on the pc (to be fair I cant remember if it was an emulator or a legit pc version however Square Enix did have the pc version on their store for a few weeks at the least before the steam version was released.). So becides it being on steam now I didn't really have enough to talk about. I just thought it was funny that only a few hours after I decided not to post it. Yours was promoted so it made it up anyways.

    Most likely it was a emulator because to my knowledge I have never seen a PC version. Even speed runners would use the PC version over the console version for faster loads and less latency issues.

    Well either way I knew Steam wasn't the first legit PC version, so it really hendered my ability to hype it up. :/ However a fun fact for you. 7 used to be just hidden in the steam files, but now 8 is hidden in the steam files. We could be seeing a line of the classic FF's on Steam if this keeps up.
