The Art of Fan Art

Final Fantasy VII Edition

It’s so hard to say that Final Fantasy VII (FFVII) is just a game. It’s popularity created a mass amount of spin offs, movies, and cameos. Were even (hopefully) getting a complete revamp of the original FFVII game if Square ever recovers from some major set backs.

Final Fantasy VII is the seventh main installment in the Final Fantasy series, developed and published by Squaresoft. It was released in January 1997 for the PlayStation, and was later re-released for other gaming and handheld platforms.  It was also the first game in the series to see a PAL release (Australia, Europe, New Zealand) and the first in the series to be played in 3D animation (it’s predecessors being in 2D pixel animation)

The game was extremely well received at release; receiving numerous perfect scores and game of the year awards for 1997. The title sold just under 10 million copies for the PlayStation, which makes it the second best-selling PlayStation game of all time.

So it’s not hard to believe with this kind of reception the amounts of fan created works based off of the game. Just on Deviantart alone I could find over 30,000 pieces of art, and that doesn’t even begin to include fan fiction and the amazing cosplays created by the fan base as well.

Lets take a look at my top 10 (it was so hard to narrow down to only 10 @__@) Final Fantasy VII fan creations!
