Final Fantasy VIII turns 15 today: Happy Birthday Squall

Games in Asia: "Cards on the table: I love Final Fantasy VIII (FFVIII). I love Squall, I love Rinoa, hell, I even don’t hate Irvine. I love the overly-dramatic love story, I love the ridiculous weaponry and I love the fact the mercenary badasses are called SeeDs (pronounced seeds) and are trained in a Garden. It’s over-the-top-awesome and today is its fifteenth birthday.

In Scotland, birthdays for a loved ones usually involve heavy drinking and swapping stories. I’m all out of beer but I have a thing or two to say about the game I remember so fondly." (Final Fantasy VIII, Retro)
