To put it into greater perspective, FFIX sold 5.3 Million compared to 4.47 of this one and 4 million came from Japan alone. The same can't be said for FFVII-IX.

The fact is, Dragon Quest is still more popular than FF in Japan, where JRPGS are king. Need I remind you, Enix the developer saved Square, developer of FF, as they were about to go bankrupt even with FF, which resulted in the creation of Square Enix. If Dragon Quest kept going in the West like FF did and bear the poor sales like FFIV and VI, and eventually reach legend status like FFVII, it'd be at least half as popular.

Yeah, but selling great ONLY in ONE market (Japan) is not so great. Final Fantasy is evenly popular throughout the ENTIRE world. Now THAT is great. It's every bit as popular in NA as it is in Japan. You gotta appeal to the entire world to TRULY be great. :)

Bought it in an impulse buy but I dont mind

For Japan alone it is the best selling in the series
I wonder if DQ9 can change that
|Sky Render (on 26 June 2009)|
Ah, good old DQ7. One of the finest entries in the series, and one of the best illustrations of why the series never took off outside of Japan. In Japan, it defines the turn-based RPG. Outside of Japan, it's remarkably niche.
The overall pace is slow, the story is borderline episodic in nature, and the battle engine is pretty fast-paced, which is good given all the fights you get into. This all adds up to a great game to those who embrace the JRPG mindset, and a dull slogfest to fans of more Western-tailored game experiences.

Bought it last week on Ebay in mint condition. Can't wait to play! I'm really into this series after IV, V and VIII.

Lets say there are better RPGs out there.
At least FFXII is an even worse game compared to this.
|Domo-Kun (on 06 June 2008)|
