Final Fantasy VII is Now Available on Steam

It's time to take a time machine and revisit 1997.

A year ago, Square Enix brought the HD release of Final Fantasy 7 to PC. Until recently, Final Fantasy 7 had only been available on PC via the Square Enix store.

The publisher's finally seen fit to bring FF7 to Steam's virtual shelves. Final Fantasy 7 is available now for purchase for $11.99 on Steam, the same price as it is (and has been) in the Square Enix store. However, for achievement hunters, buying FF7 through Steam means the possibility of adding another 36 achievements to the e-ego.

    I'll probably end up getting this next friday. I need a good single player rpg, and I haven't bought this yet from the Square Enix store. I played originally on the PS1 and on the PC when it came out. To me it's the last great Final Fantasy game.

    i bought this game around 2-3 years ago on the square enix store. worst drm ive ever seen. all saves are in the cloud and you have to be online and on your own account to access the bloody files. dont really know if the steam version is any different, so I wouldnt get it until verifying if the drm is the same.

    And that is the main reason to BUY it because it is not a rull remake. It is a very good game made playable on modern PC's. For me that is what I wanted to be able to replay the game I remember on my i5 3570K GTX 670 SLI. I have the original CD release but it is not playable on modern PC's this is.

    the graphic is an eye sore by today's standards. i would skip it and wait for square to bring ff12 and ff13 to the pc with properly updated visuals. :P

    I prefer quality game play over quality graphics. I'm sure if they remade this, it would no doubt suck.

    For those who don't care for the graphics (or the low quality PC music in this edition) there's always modding. A couple of mods really bring this game back to life.

    Considering how much of a nightmare FFVII-PC and FFVIII-PC were (getting those to work properly required very specific GPUs that supported palletized textures and only worked with a handful of specific driver revisions), I personally wouldn't be in much of a hurry to spend more on playing a re-release with more invasive DRM.

    If they want me to re-purchase FF7, they should remake it on the PC or PS4 with graphics on par with the FF7 PS3 tech demo.
