“To this day, Final Fantasy VIII remains one of the least popular title in the series.”

One of the best selling games in the franchise is one its least popular entries?

What a facetious moron

FF8 is actually my favourite, I know it has plot holes but the main thing is I had fun playing it and have replayed it several times fully.

@ harmny

I’m not a fan of FFVIII either but let’s not pretend it’s some niche entry in the series

harmny39d ago

Ok. Let's not pretend that. I apologize

TheRealTedCruz39d ago

It also came off the heels of 7. Definitely didn't hurt it there.

harmny39d ago

Exactly. Nine on the other hand. Amazing

All anyone can say is that it was one of the most polarizing entries in the series, it's never done badly or been especially hated.

Written by one guy without a backing of millions. Nope FF8 is not the worst.

Oh come on, VIII is far from the worst, it’s one of the best. Just constant nitpickers who want to put it down for whatever reason

FFXII, FFXIII, FFXV, FFV, FFII etc are far worse and there’s more but those are debatable

Kados39d ago

V & XII are both good games. II, X-2, XIII, XIII-2, LR & XV are all worse though.

TheRealTedCruz39d ago

XII is my favorite in the series.

FinalFantasyFanatic38d ago

XII is probably my most disliked in the series following XV and then XIII (yes, I actually like XIII more than XV).

You like one game?
More than a different game?!

Razmiran38d ago

I cant belive someone who calls himself the final fantasy fanatic would like one final fantasy product more than another final fantasy product

pietro121238d ago

XII wasn't bad what so ever

IMO it was one of the best just like FF7

Knightofelemia39d ago

Besides FF10 FF8 has always been my fave. If FF8 is that bad then stop trying at the game and give up you're just butt hurt some boss probably owned you in the game.
