What if Final Fantasy VIII had trophies?

B2G writes: What if Final Fantasy 8 had trophies?

I came up with that specific thought because FF7 was re-released this week with achievements. And then I thought, what if FF8 has achievements? (Final Fantasy VIII, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

FF VII now has Steam achievements and they are lame. Mostly for beating each disc, using 1st and Final Limits, and beating the Weapons. Nothing creative whatsoever. If FF VIII were to come in to consoles or PC with achievements/trophies, please be more creative.

It should've had an achievement for Cloud being Don Corneo's special lady for the night haha.

It would awesome if trophies were patched into ps one classics. I think its possible, because one of the ark the lad games for ps one on psn has some kind of online arena fighting add on to it too.

Imagine these games with trophies:
Castlevania sotn
metal gear solid
Mgs vr missions
Soikoden
And just about any other game u can think of (sorry, im just a huge konami fan).

Also PS2 trophies. :O

Nothing

I have always wanted a Hd remake of 8 instead of 7, and the Trophy list in the article would be a fine addition.

7 is better than 8 though.

Same as you MrAnderson, but some people do like the old Trophies and Achievements

To each their own Zanarkand I suppose, I'm a FF7 > FF10 > FF8 guy. Although the three of them are some of my favorite games anyway and are very close. They also have there ups and downs.

FFX is better than them both IMO

Personally i preferred 8 to 7
DOMination-  +   986d ago
I felt FFX was the start of it all going downhill. Linear corridors going from one area to another, no world map, crap voice acting.. it gets a much easier ride than FF13 simply because it's fondly remembered as a PS2 exclusive but the game was nowhere near as good as 6-9 imo. The battle system in X was great though.
ToZanarkand86  +   986d ago
Yeah i agree about the linear nature of FFX but i thought the story, voice acting and battle system were awesome. There was a lot more to do and more to explore in FFX than FF13 though, and FF13s story was soo boring.

Oh, and the music... To Zanarkand alone makes FFX a beast of a game.

Yeah you are both right, FFX had everything except the world map, FFXIII had no distactions/minigames etc either which meant you could do nothing but combat, also the combat sucked for the 20 hours I played, cept boss battles and Summons
ToZanarkand86  +   986d ago
Yeah i gave up after 20 hrs on FF13 too, the forced drama, shitty characters and TERRIBLE battle system killed it for me. Dunno what theyre thinking making FF13-2 and now possibly FF13-3! Dumbasses or what...
doogiebear  +   986d ago
Nope. Be enlighted:

Ff 5-8, 10 > FF 11, 13, 14

FF 9 I didnt think was all that spectacular, but I dont know anyone who disliked it as much as me, so i'll just have to respect the fact that it's a classic to fans nontheless. 12 was alright too.

I've never seen the appeal of trophies, I don't care personally.

get all GFs to max level? wtf!

I still get nightmares of Diablos and that magic lamp...

there were so many "hidden" GFs in the game. I heard you could draw Siren when fighting that giant blizzard bug on the Communications Tower in Dollet?

You can also draw Siren from one of the bosses in Ultimecia's Castle if you missed her in Dollet. But it'd be a pain in the ass trying to max her out that late in the game.

Yes, and you get Carbuncle the same way at the end of the first CD when fighting the lizard/lion things. If I remember well, Fujin or Raijin got another GF as well, Pandemonium.

And there are really cool secret quests regarding Grasharaboras (Doomtrain), the UFOs, Odin, Tonberry King and many other things.

Great game, I would love to play it again, too bad it aged in a ugly way unlike 2D/sprites games from the same time. Played Legend of Mana again and it's still gorgeous, even after 13 or 14 years.

Without a guide, many of them are very easy to miss, but you can draw some of them again in the final dungeon, although it's kinda too late.
aiBreeze  +   987d ago
Getting doomtrain should definitely be a trophy.. took me freaking ages.
FinaLXiii  +   986d ago
Having all the cards in the game is definitly one the hardest things to do because is quite time consuming.
