I think claiming Final Fantasy 7 as having revolutionized RPGs is about the same as claiming Resident Evil 4 invented the QTE or that Morrowind invented "open world" RPGs.
RPGs with complex stories existed LONG before FF7 and FF7 was just building on the work previous (as did Planescape Torment, my personal favorite), but it didn't invent the concept. It is just the one that most gamers of this generation associate as their "first" so it is special to them.

Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed is the Daily Deal on Steam, now for €12,50. It got quite a lot of positive reaction here on the RPS forums.

I will not derail with further talk about the importance of certain games.
Anyways, what's the verdict on that Magic the Gatheringstuff that's on Steam at the moment?

The Steam daily is mis-leading. It's actually every Sonic game on Steam is 50% off (inc. all DLC).
-I strongly recommend Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed. Above thread should highlight that it's also well liked. Fantastic arcade racer, great production values, runs well. Up to 4 player split-screen. (Note: This makes getting the original sort of redundant, especially as it has no online component.)
-Sonic Generations is a great homage to the Sonic franchise and a really fun game all round. Presentation is wonderful, with amazing visuals and music. It also goes on sale at perfect timing, as a mod porting all of the console box's Sonic Unleashed good levels has just been released, so you essentially double your Modern Sonic content! That said, SG has been on sale for more.
-There's also the classics, 1-3&Knuckles. The emulator they come with works fine, so if you want them, there they are.
-The re-release of Sonic CD is best on the PC. If you liked the classics, you'll definitely want to try this out. It's a bit different, with a bigger focus on exploration, but it plays as the others.
-Sonic Adnvetures 1 and 2. 1 didn't have a great port, 2 had a much better one. Only played a bit of 1, didn't think it was very good. Haven't played 2, no interest to do so. They're generally liked by the fandom, but I do think they're indicative of the declining quality of the series.
-3D Blast is not very good, unless you're a die-hard fanatic. Spinball is something different, but not really worth buying.
-Avoid Sonic 4's two episode incarnations, especially if you liked the original Mega Drive titles.

A faithful rendition of the cardgame in PC form. The biggest downside is the inability to create your own deck from scratch. You are stuck with a number of pre-determined decks that can be modified by unlocking up to 30 cards for each one. I played the analog form of the game for years and enjoyed this digital version as well.

Okay, but what about the DLC? There's almost fifty articles there.

The "Deck Packs" each add one or two new decks to the game, which you can then play in the campaign as well as in the different multiplayer modes. The "Expansion" adds another solo campaign, although I don't know anything specific about that.

Other downside to Duels of the Planewalkers is there'll be a new version next year, and every subsequent year, and everyone you were playing multiplayer with will get that and no one will want to play the old version.

Half the DLC will unlock decks without you having to do it, the other half will unlock all foil versions of those decks.
I have the 2012 version, I never play it online, but it can be a fun little time sink. Some of the challenges are great head for getting the gears going.

Cost of buying actual MTG - your soul and hundreds if not thousands of dollars in cards.
Of course if you have fun with it, spend all the money you like, just expect to start paying out the nose for it and ending up binning/storing hundreds upon hundreds of cards that are worthless.

I bought the original MTG on Steam and enjoyed it (having not played any CCG before) - I understand the single-player bit has only gotten better and that most of the DLC is tat, just wait for the next annual update to go on sale and buy that instead...
Unless you get into playing online perhaps - then you might need some bits and the new version sooner perhaps - but then you'll be getting more from it and won't mind the extra cash?

The scenes at the funfair were amongst the most moving and powerful I'd seen from any game, let alone a cute(ish) looking JRPG. The graphics, for their time, were fantastic. Sure, the 3D parts of the graphics haven't aged well, but 3D graphics rarely do. I'm not sure it invented anything new in the genre, but it certainly did almost everything to a high standard and packaged it up in a way that hadn't been seen before. The hipsters doing down FFVII as only being special to younger (errr... late 20 something) gamers are misguided in their scorn.
