According to SCEA, Final Fantasy VIII will appear on the North American Playstation Store soon.
It's about time that they shed some light on the matter.
aye. My fav. PS-family related Final Fantasy. The reason why I got hooked to FF-series. FF6 with Locke the Thief was the best FF i've played. Too bad they dont make games like they used to.
Theres no point in hacking a PSP anymore. Sony delivers all the PS1 games I've ever wanted!
This was the first FF game I ever played. I actually still have it and I'm staring at it right now wondering why I'm not playing it...
IX! Where's IX?! FFIX is my favorite of the PS1 FF's.
Please tell me that I'm not the only one here that feels FFVIII was the worst of the PSone Final Fantasy entries? This is the only FF that I never completed to its conclusion. I beat FFVII, FFIX, FF Tactics, FF Anthology, FF Chronicles, and FF Origins. Final Fantasy VIII just felt sort of "Meh" to me, mostly because I hated the Junction system and having to draw spells from enemies which got really ponderous really quick. Hell most people claim FFXII is the worst in the series. Oh no I like FFXII, I say part 8 is worse. Bringing any one of the FF retro compilations (Anthology, Chronicles, Origins) or FFIX would do the PSN users the most good.
^ Final Fantasy VIII was my least favorite of the PS1 FF's too. It was totally forgettable. I bought it the day it came out, finished it by the end of the following weekend, never touched it again.
Didn't like FFVIII at all back in the day, but it's slowly been growing on me the past months
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa y I never got to play VIII.
yes finally i love this game. my personal favorite
It's about DAMNED time! I've been waiting every PS Store update for months for this one. Score for Sony releasing FFVII on PSN, now bring this one please!
Awesome, even more games...
Bollocks 2 the yanks release it in the EU 4-me
8 had the stupidest game mechanics. Drawing spells from monsters and making too much of the game rely on the card mini game put within. Card game wasn't bad put together, but it shouldn't have been the mechanic to getting final weapons for characters.(You could get items off cards, some of which are key components to making final weapons and can't be found anywhere else) Plus that card game had a lot of BS surrounding it making it so you had to reload saves often because you lost cards. Too much luck based scenarios with it. 8 had a well paced story though and great cut scenes...but some very poor ideas. I mean Renoa shoots a dog at enemies to do damage...da hell ?
My favorite from the psx era. The depth and customization of the junction system and upgradable espers made it fantastic.
Square decided they wanted to get away from the dark and depressing atmosphere of FF6 & 7. It was the first FF to have anatomically realistic characters and the color pallets chose for this game were bright and lively. The card game introduced in FF8 were well executed and fun. I rate FF8 as my 4th favorite FF game.
This was my favorite of the PS1 Final Fantasy's. I know people really look to 7 as the big one of the time, but man, 8 just blew me away when it was released. I'd love for this game to be remade in Hi-def. Squall ftw.
Squall definitely FTW! Best FF ever, in my opinion. I'm surprised they took this long. Must have something to do with SE? I have the disks but i'd rather just have it on my HDD. I'll collect all the cards again. Another good one to release to NA and EU is Vagrant Story for those that missed out. It's a weird game at first but it's deep. I just hated losing my weapon affinity after perfecting it.
Yeah a lot of peeps shunned this one but it was also one of my favorites. A mix of the old/new technology in one game.
i tried downloading it on my old comp but it would lag so much maybe it was the emulator i dunno anyways ill buy this game when it comes out
Dude, if you were going to pirate it, why not just get the PC version? Better graphics.
Or you could BUY it. I'm all for pirating (MW2 anyone?) but come on, it's [email protected][email protected]#
um its a ps1 game i really couldn't care less about its graphics there really was no where i could buy it im not an ebay user or amazon so my options were little to none
My LEAST favorite FF game is heading to PSN. Wake me up when FFVII is remake.
whats wrong with ff8?
The swords aren't big enough and the haircuts aren't stupid enough.
Squall is annoying as hell and I constantly found myself rooting against him, I did not want him to be happy. I did enjoy the gameplay though, just wish the storyline was more interesting. I mean come on the damn villain in the game doesn't even show up till the very end. I will still buy this off the PSN on Day 1, but please oh please SE hurry up with IX.
I remember not liking the battle system of this one, all I remember is there is a LOT of numbers involved.
SE you screw up ff12 battle system now don't screw up ff13vs. b1tch please!!!!
Brings back memories. ^^ Though it's a shame that I lost disc 3 and 4. But, still - for those that love JRPG's and have not experienced this title yet should purchase it when it comes out. =]
I remember how exited I got when I final beat the damn t-rex. I was so pumped.
Maybe even longer because I always use Draw to suck the magic out of the monsters 'til it's maxed out to 100. :[ It requires a lot of patience, but it's worth it!
it is a wonderful game, i highly recommend anyone who likes jrpgs to pick this one up
The only thing bad about this game other then lovey dovey storyline is having to draw/make magic and if you use it you get weaker. Other then that it's a good game.
Yes, thanks for reminding me, now I remember the magic items were always stocked at 99, and all those junctionings....it's the most complicated and stupid battle system in all final fantasies.... But then it was the first 3D RPG with realistic characters and settings. The extensive love story was a hit or miss, but nevertheless, the graphics and music were amazing......a ground breaking PSone game.
I agree. Even if the drawing/junctioning irritated me, I still beaten the game over 3 times from start to finish. FF9 is the only playstation final fantasy that I never finished. I was so bored that I quit.
FF8 is a great JRPG, and I hope they bring it to the EU store like they did with FF7.
i love this ff. cant wait to get it. good old times.bring them all.
Now thats what i'm talkin about, this is MY favorite FF
Hooraaaay! I'm playing FF7 right now. While they're at it, they can add ff9 at the same time :)
My thoughts on FF series: FF1-FF5: Never played them FF6/FF7: Tied for second best FF game FF8: Best FF ever and still one of my all time favourite games FF9: Half-assed. Beginning of the downfall of the series. Overall mediocre. FF10: Terrible FF11: Online = /ignore from me FF12: Close, but no cigar. Battle/upgrade/menu system not deep enough and lets it down. But a glimmer of hope returns for the series. FF13: ??? I remain cautiously optimistic
ff10 is terrible??? It is my favorite out of all of them. Even if you don't like it you shouldn't think it's terrible.
10 and 9 are actually my personal favourites. Besides the easy junctioning systems, I felt the games were less hectic, and the game gave me enough time to absorb all the ongoing material, in terms of the environment changes and character development.
Thank god this one is coming finnaly the only thing i kinda have against it was besides FF9. It feels a little bit to easy. Other then that i loved it.
FF VIII was always my favorite. I think what did it for me was how very real and believable the characters were, it didn't matter to me that they were radically different from the style of art in FF VII. Both have a special place in my personal gaming history, but VIII's love story totally wins over Cloud and Aerith's from FF VII. And the junction system wasn't bad at all, you just had to work a lot more. What's wrong with an rpg battle system that makes you earn your battles? Even at level 100 you could face an enemy somewhere that would put your team out of commission if you weren't preemptive in setting up your crew for the area you're trekking through.
I can still remember how many times I died killing a f'ing Malboro. :D (Screw the haterz!)
I love this game. The people that don't like it probably found the levelling up system hard and were to stupid to take their time with it or like Rocket Sauce said the swords aren't big enough. I loved this game more than VII actually, don't get me wrong VII is awesome but I personally enjoyed this one more
Where is FF IX? They better release that in a while. You can't just leave out the best FF game.
My favourite Final Fantasy too. I actually completed this one in Japanese even though I can't read the language. I loved the characters, the art style, remember my jaw hitting the floor when I had control of Squall and team during a cutscene. I really enjoyed the gameplay too, taking my time wandering the world looking for draw points. One of my favourite mini games from the Final Fantasy series too. I've had it on my PSP for a while and it translates wonderfuly. I agree that they need to bring it to the UK too. Gunblades are cool! =p
@ Anorexorcist I only disliked FF8 due to the tedious drawing magic system. Other than that, it was a great game (at least a 8.5 out of 10). I LOVE THE INTRO CG!
FF8 is an amazing gem often overlooked because of its big brother FF7.Definetly a must buy.
FF8 is my fav FF made and was also my first, will definitely buy this since my 60gb ps3 won't read the game I currently have!
