Let me start this off...
This is my First Forum Topic and i'll base it on my all time favorite game--FF8!
I'd say that this game is the best among the rest! :p
theories? well, i read a lot of theories about the ending. many people say that Squall died in the end. there's also one big theory about rinoa and ultimecia being one single person... i know these are old theories. but i just wanna feel the ff8 spirit again and of course--i wanna read your opinions! :p
as for me, i don't think squall died. but i sort of believe in the rinoa/ultimecia theory.
So what do you think?

As a heads up, just about any and every final fantasy thread turns into a debate about whether or not they all suck, how much square sucks, how KH and FF are either the shittiest or greatest games of all time, or any of that. The same old people will come in and bash and think that it's all been downhill since RPGs started being made on anything other than the SNES. So don't take the flaming personally.

That said, FF8 has one of my favorite combat systems for the PS1 generation of RPGs. I really liked the draw/junctioning system, especially how you could really abuse it. I liked the realistic spin they took with the character design, and overall I thought the character design was pretty good. The music was excellent as well. I just listened to the soundtrack the other day and was impressed with it even now.

The characters were interesting enough in my book, though Zell was really annoying. The plot is what was downright terrible, probably the weakest FF plot I've personally played. It was supposed to be a love story, but the romance felt awkward and juvenile, and I played this game quite a few years ago so that's not just a jaded older fan talking.

I don't really think Squal is dead because of the "hidden" (as in not really hidden at all) movie in the credits that show them goofing off with a camera. Sadly, I don't think Square gave any real thought to the plot of this game to warrant many of the ideas you're talking about. Just fans desperately wishing there was more to this game than there was. They just kinda threw something together, made it look pretty, and called it complete. I do think it was the best battle/whatever system in the PS1 generation though.

Untill they bury all the unsold copies of FF8 in a desert landfill (which they literally did with E.T.), then it can't be the worst game of all time.

About the only thing I really ever complain about when it comes to FF8 is how weak the last boss is...

Most FF final bosses are really easy. If you want a challenge, you have to dig around and find the hidden bosses. They don't actually drop anything good, they're just bragging rights so I never bother going for them.

I agree, 7 is way overrated. It took so long to begin even a semblance of a story...I quit playing about 2 hours in. 8, although I am sure isn't the best game, was my favorite. I liked the characters and the game play. I was satisfied with it overall. I liked 9..10 blew chunks, and I never could bring myself to shell out any more money for the games beyond that... Now, FF3 for DS? Cheeya!

whoever thought of the theory that squall died is the most dumbest noob who didn't watch the clip in the very end.
the theory aboout rinoa and ultimecia being together is another stupid one (of course they were but not anymore), if you *read* and not scan through it, the end at where squall went back to the past. it tells *clearly* that ultimecia went back to Edea. Ever think about why Edea knew about squall and SEED before it was ever created?
now you know why they are "old" theorys haha.

wow, apparently there are alot of haters on this game. well, i really liked it and it was the first final fantasy i ever played and i loved the music, characters, and the storyline. come on, you cant deny the greatness of laguna and julia. she made the song eyes on me because she thought laguna was dead, great stuff. and about squall being dead, dont be stupid, he kisses rinoa at the end on the balcony of the garden, right after they are celebrating. he is alive.
