It's simply amazing that a game could, after more then a decade, be topping the charts in the HD generation, but that's the power of Final Fantasy VII. Despite what many purists say, this classic is the pinnacle of Final Fantasy and RPGs for millions of users, as evidenced by the fact that the downloadable version is the PSP's most popular digital purchase of 2010 thus far. 

What's the second most popular? Why, that would be Final Fantasy VIII! Yes, even more polarizing than VII, but only slightly less popular on the download front. Both of these ancient games have beaten such modern titles as Chains of Olympus, LittleBigPlanet and Grand Theft Auto

We're so used to the popularity of these games that it's hard for us to be amazed when we hear that VII is a chart-topper. However, when you truly stop to consider the age and graphical prowess of the game in question, it really is something to be astounded by. We talk so much about the graphical superiority of the PS3 and PSP, but it's these clanking old PSOne games that are still selling in droves. Amusing. 

Hit the jump for the full list, as generated by PSN's Pulse.

What's Up: Final Fantasy All the Lamest, Nintendo pre-order peril, and don't drink Fireball

I'm back and feeling better. I got sucked into the shady money scam known as Final Fantasy All the Bravest, got annoyed by Hyrule Warrior's retail-exclusive pre-order bonuses, and recount mistakes made with Fireball whiskey.more
