I'm afraid the graphics look awful on the FF series and MGS nowadays, in my opinion, along with pretty much any other PS1 game (except perhaps Gran Turismo). It was that iffy period that marked the transition between sprites and polygons, when the polygon games were in their infancy and thus a tad ugly. But the important thing is they're such good games in every other way (arguably with the exception of FF8) that you don't even notice the graphics most of the time.
However, if FF7 had the storyline and gameplay of FFXIII, without the eye candy that compensates for it, then we'd have had issues...
In general I'd say the HDTV revolution hasn't done PS1 or even PS2 any favours. The graphics didn't look as bad when you were squinting through a 14" CRT!
