"With the bonus I got with FFVII, I bought a PC and started browsing the net. I was curious about what players thought of Square’s games so I started reading FFVII bulletin boards. The negative remarks which came back the most where “there’s too many flashbacks” and “the story is too sad”. Taking this into account, I decided to write for FFVIII a story where none of the main characters would die. And I really like using flashbacks, giving puzzle pieces to the players. And then make the players realize what really happened later on".

ff8's flashbacks were cancer. what with Ellone and all her shit magic tricks. god.

The flashbacks were some of the best bits in FFVII. Utilised really well. But in FFVIII, well the whole story was a clusterfuck.

All I'm hoping for after the FFVII and FFVIII talk and hype is for FFIX to get some love.

I hope FF8 does get a remake in the future. Favorite FF of all time.
