I don't really understand why there is so much hate against the FFVII PC port. Sure it could have been better but calling it abysmal sounds pretty harash. There were LOTS of games back then that couldn't run at any higher resolution than 640x480 and MIDI wasn't that uncommmon either. Crashes? Sure there were some, but that's something common even nowadays (and back on the day, with Windows 95/98 running on the background, what else could you realistically expect?). Compatibility probelms? Hell yes, but that's also extremely common ever since Windows XP became mainstream (and it only gets worse with every new version). And with all the job done by the commutnity, it works just great even on Windows 7 x64, an OS that can't even handle games from 2003 such as Beyond Good and Evil (due to a friggin incompatibility with the installer). I'd be glad if the guys at Square realized it's stupid trying to fix a game that it's already completly fixed. Is it that hard for them to give proper credit to the people around here and just use their work?
All in all, I'd definitely get this on Steam if they released it. But yeah, doesn't look like it's gonna happen, ever.
