Final Fantasy VIII is a strange beast; a master of nothing, but a powerful lion of an experience.
Hehe just started playing this. I need to complete this after having stopped and started this like a jillion times. I remember when the CGI was so impressive to me and now, our gameplay visuals in games have surpassed that! Insane. Just finished the ceremony bit- memories!

Best of the PSX FFs even if the combat is lackluster
Try a no leveling playthrough. The game was essentially made for it. At the start, during the Dollet mission with Seifer, equip Seifer with all 3 current GFs & kill the other 2 party members, then train on the bridge with just Seifer. You can get him and the 3 GFs all up to lvl 100, and get 3 full stacks of all the -raga's in about 16 hours. After the missiion, play trip-tri in Balamb garden and the harbor to get as many cards as you can, and convert them into more magic and items. then just use run, card, break, or level-down on everything in the game to avoid gaining exp. It mixes things up enough to make the game more enjoyable and it is actually easier that way, as the world scales to the parties average level, enemies gain stats at higher levels, while the player characters do not, and player stats are based mostly off of equipped magic. It all works together to actually make the game easier at low CB levels. You can do another GF power level when you get Edea as a temp char.
16 hours are you kidding me? Just learn some abilities that convert items into magic, Cura to Curaga, junction to stats, leave Squall low health and limit break every enemy
Gardenia - 16 hours is nothing. If you do the angelo search exploit you can easily put hundreds or even thousands of hours into the game. It's one of the only ways to stock up on hero's without using up your Laguna card. Which is a big deal if you're trying to finish the game with every card.
Is it strange that I think this game is better than FFVII? It's a graphically superior successor that ditches the noob-friendly approach to provide a deeper, more engaging system for an RPG veteran. About the only reason I can think of as to why FFVII is so popular is because it's the first JRPG many people played. It sure as heck wasn't my first though. The only annoying thing about FFVIII for me is having to draw MP, but the hoarder in me wouldn't let me miss a single draw point and refrain from draining it for all it's worth so I just got used to it.
simply stunning this game was. some parts were really tough too tough imo especially the part where you fight them colours propogators and last boss was piss take
If you have an inclination to play this game I say go for it. I personally detest it, but a lot of people enjoyed it.
I remember having a blast playing FFVIII up until when we get the spaceship, or a wee bit after that, then he really went downhill IMHO. But for a game made by the same team within Squaresoft that handled FFX, it certainly was way better. And the graphics were top notch back then, it really felt like a big AAA game with huge production value. When are SE going to re-release it on the PSN? It was one of the few PSOne game that never worked on the PS3 for some reason, so I'd definitely like to have it on the PS4, provided they don't give us a sh!tty smartphone version with a menu pad that eats up 1/3 of the screen, that is.
Why do I feel like every week there's a "retro review" of FFVIII being posted here? It receives more reviews than any other game. I get the strong feeling that its fans, deep down, realize it's just not very good, and keep making these reviews to try to convince people (and themselves) that it's better than it really is.
It was certainly different from VII, more focused on the characters than the world. It was the same with FFX that was made by the same team
