    It's only slow cause you're an impatient person who expects instant gratification. Slow down, enjoy life.

    The battle speed (read: loading times) is a hardware issue, not a game issue

    How come no other JRPG on the PS1 has that issue?

    Hate to break it to you, but while the loading issue for the battles is certainly a hardware issue. The battle speed is actually intentional. Sakaguchi wanted battles to feel closer to the NES era than the ATB era.

    That's why I specified loading times, the other part of the battle system's speed isn't an issue

    Agreed, I don't actually mind slower battles.

    Well maybe, just maybe, Square should have opted for assets that were quicker to load, then. Like they did in FF8.

    In the end, FFVII is the one people have been throwing themselves into volcanoes for just to get a remake happening. Best game of all time, not just best Final Fantasy. Perhaps Freya just can't think of FFVII as best FF because FFVII transcends all reasonable expectations and ratings for a mere video game, and has evolved into a beautiful, invaluable thing of it's own right. "What's your favourite Final Fantasy" almost presumes that you're not including Final Fantasy VII because the very question suggests that there is a choice, and if Final Fantasy VII is included in those choices, the question become rhetorical. If you don't include FFVII, I guess you can squabble over your IX, X and XII or whatever else.
    Bow before the mighty Javoo!
