Cause apart from the ridiculous Barrett (or as I always named him "Mr Farty") the main characters were pretty relate-able.
Of course nobody back then expected Mr Farty to become the sidekick in gears of war or that characters in games in general would become more and more stereotypical unlike-able twats as the years went by.
FFVII and FFIX are part of a dying breed of games with nice, fun, characters who emotionally involve the players. These days most of the 'heroes' are lumps of meat with biceps bigger than they're necks. If I saw somebody with biceps bigger than they're neck walking down the street I'd cross the damn road!
