Honestly, I was always bugged by Final Fantasy 7's mass over-hype. For me personally, 7's good but nowhere near close to my favorite of the series. In fact, I lean more favorably towards the non-Nomura games in general, and it's a bit disheartening to see that his design philosophy is not only overwhelmingly popular, but has pretty much taken over Square-Enix completely (or more so Square..... Dragon Quest still manages to be the pure and good Toriyama artstyle it's always been). Nevertheless, I would be remiss to not acknowledge that 7, nevertheless, IS a very popular game and has managed to retain such relevance over the past two decades. Granted, at least some of that might've just been the result of Squenix milking the god damn thing to death (be it through the Compilation of FF7 in the '00s, or now the remake that they're taking forever just to release a small portion of), but considering how well-loved it was even before such milking, I think a larger portion of its popularity may indeed be genuine.

Cloud is the poster boy for the entire JRPG genre, at least in the West.

Cloud Strife is not a generic anime swordsman, he's THE generic anime swordsman. That should count for something, right?

For gamers, yes. His recognition really drops off hard with non-gamers though.

He's one of the big icons of the PS1, along Lara Croft and Crash. He absolutely is.

Considering how many character designers after FF7 tried to copy him I'd say so. But I don't particularly care about FF to go as far as to say that I "genuinely and sincerely" believe in anything FF related, I'm just leaning towards yes on this question.
Everything will be fire.
