My thoughts too. If you look at this list objectively, its pretty good. And if you can only put one Final Fantasy game on there, there's no denying that VII is the most important game in the series, given how much critical and commercial success it had. I like other games in the series more, but I'm happy to see FF VII on the list.
And FINALLY, someone gives Metroid its props! It seems every "best of" list has Super Metroid on it, and while I don't deny it's the better game, Metroid has become criminally underrated in the last decade, and not enough people give it credit for everything it pioneered.
