The draw skill was a mistake and the plot became out right silly, an example being they grew up together as orphans and the only one who remembers doesn't say anything.

Dood.... that's FInal Fantasy in a nut shell. If you can name a single FF game that didn't end up with a stupidly silly and/or convoluted plot by the end then it probably shouldn't be considered an actual FF game

Yes I know it's my fault , i get excited and then there's me the end of the game banging my head against the wall screaming Why Why did I fall for it again. at least FFXV meant i never got that far.

The only Final Fantasy that managed to hold my attention long enough and actually completed it! So definitely my favorite title.
Shame that there isn't a remake/remaster except for the re-release we got on PC.

Final fantasy emo sequal was pretty good. I remember getting all the way to the 3rd disc when I was a youngin... For it too freeze and become unplayable. Even tried a friends disc... Nothing. If a hd port was available on the Xbox, I'd buy it again and finally finish it.

Has a series ever been more famous for corrupted saves than this?

The gameplay is wack but everything else is just so glorious. If any game needs a remake it's this one.

If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

... god I'm old.

I look forward to SquEnix ruining this masterpiece too one day with a 'remake'.

Hmm, pie.

May FF8 forever remind Kapi and Wright that their tastes are horrible!

Also, where were people when the other black sheep (FFV) needed it's own Happy Birthday thread ? HUH ?

Of all the past FF games referenced in FFVIII, I think FFV gets the most and the best callbacks. Its a great game and my favourite pre-Playstation.

Happy Birthday FF8

My favorite trait: FF8 is unique in the series for having no reolors of enemies! Because of the level system, they just up the enemies level and that would increase stats and give new skills (like Pokemon). FF8 is my favorite in regards to monster design, or at least in the top 3.

If I remember correctly, it was released in the U.S. the same day as the Dreamcast, 9/9/1999.
