GuardianTV: "Following the commercial success of Final Fantasy VII, Squaresoft released Final Fantasy VIII in 1999. The game sported a large number of differences from it’s predecessor and was not a direct sequel. The protagonist of this game is Squall, an angsty individual preferring to spend his time alone rather than with others. This game has a number of fan theories behind it, one of the biggest fan theories is that part way through the game Squall is killed and the rest of the game is a vision he sees as he fades to black. Is there enough evidence to prove this theory or is it too far-fetched?"
