There’s no shortage of opinion on Final Fantasy VIII, a fact that surfaced in a big way when Square Enix gave the game a PC release via Steam last week. It was great to see people passionately discussing the game’s virtues and ills still in 2013. It seems like the excitement around its release is greater than mere discussion, though: as of this writing, Final Fantasy VIII – a game originally released just over 14 years ago – is the number two best-seller on Steam. It’s beating out the likes of Assassin’s Creed IV and Call of Duty: Ghosts. Surely a lot of those buyers are and have been fans of the game since the PS1 days, but it made me wonder about the inevitable percentage who are completely new to the adventure too.
