Cyberpunk 2020 (which 2077 is based on) was published in 1988. The US version of Final Fantasy I was released in 1990.

Is Final Fantasy originally a US based game? Could have sworn they were Japanese.

Final Fantasy's original Japanese release has nothing to do with how it was recieved or its cultural significance in America though. Hence me using the US publishing date.

Even people who aren't huge into tabletop roleplaying games (which is where Cyberpunk hails from) will probably get into it based on CDPR's fantastic reputation and the hype-train and aesthetic alone.

Speaking of aesthetics, I also agree that Cyberpunk has the edge over FFVIIR in the West. The typical Westerner doesn't find Cloud's Japanese design all that appealing.

You realize that these games are getting released in more places than just the US right? There was absolutely nobody here trying to just use the US before you because it isn't really relevant to the discussion. There are more countries out there that play video games than just the US.

I think given the increasing popularity of anime and its design choices (Yaiba and MHA seem to be picking up steam pretty quick) the more 'realistic' aesthetic FF7 has is probably not going to turn anyone off unless they're literally only interested in large manly men who look like refrigerators ala Gears of War.

In which case their first experience of Final Fantasy would actually be FFVII in 97. Not counting Japan of course.

I'm not sure I understand your point. We're talking about the age and significance of FF and Cyberpunk, yeah?

Exactly, and FF is older and has a much wider spread and significance. Again, not even everyone on this site is American. When we talk about when something originated we don't talk about when it just came to America, we talk about when it you know originated.

I mean, there are many many people who played Final Fantasy before VII worldwide so no.
