Come on, I'm a PS1 guy myself, but why is it so hard for many others to admit that the N64 was more powerful and had better graphics?
Because it didn't? I've never seen an N64 game that has as good graphics as Final Fantasy 8 had on PS1. Sure a lot of what made it look great is the cutscenes, but there were times when the cutscene would seamlessly move in to gameplay and there would be no noticable drop in graphics. It really looked awesome!
