No matter which version you choose: Final Fantasy VIII is great entertainment!
i remember i played ff7 back then and i couldn‘t wait for ff8 and when it was finally there i was rather disappointed. ff8 as a successor to ff7 is pretty underwhelming, to say the least.
That's because you expected FF7. Thing about these titles is that they are all spiritual successors, not sequels.
It's kinda funny how things work. I played FFVIII first and loved it. Time went on and I tried to go back and play VII since I had heard so much great stuff about it and, sadly, just couldn't get into it.
