Why was FF8 controversial?

GrandpaSnake1498d ago (Edited 1498d ago )

from what i remember a lot of things were controversial. i remember it being the only ff that has cursing and the ending also had a lot of weird theories going on.

DiscoKid1498d ago

FF7 had worse cursing. FF8 is probably the weirdest of the franchise, but I still love it to this day.

Magic system that worked like items, enemies that level up when you do (and their stats get even higher than yours), bad plot twist, long and unskippable summon scenes, jerk protagonist, among other things.

Squall dies halfway through the game.

It's only "controversial" in the sense that many fans consider it a "love it or hate it" title in the series.

And since FFVII was the first FF game that many Western gamers played, a lot of fans were confused or disappointed to discover that FFVIII wasn't more like its predecessor.

But that's about it. It's not really "controversial". But it does seem to get a lot more hate on forums than most games in the main series.

Still my favorite Final Fantasy out of the ones to hit the PS1.

Nerdmaster1498d ago

I started playing it again to see if some years away from it make me enjoy it more. Let's see for how long I can endure it.

The best Final Fantasy games are 6,7 and 8. Nuff said.
