    The first half of the game was awesome. The second half doesn’t even feel like it’s the same game. Story becomes something else and it ruins the epic Edea part.

      This brings me back to playing this, ff7 and ff9 with the help of my dad back when I was around 10. Now Im playing ff15 with my son and he's having a blast fishing!

          Would you consider doing recaps of the Parasite Eve trilogy?

                By the way, anybody thought of the fact that even with defeating Ultimecia, you kinda essentially ensured that she would exist in the far future to do the whole thing again?

                  It's the best rpg system in the PSOne era... too bad that people weren't ready back then.

                  If you actually release the game mechanics of FF8 today, it would fit right in the current customizable character system.

                    You do a great job of explaining this. But I don't care what people say, this storyline is confusing AF.

                                Why did the girl he met at the ball would like to excuse herself after they dance and get along well...

                                        Thank you for explaining all of that! But this game's story is super confusing and all over the place. At least it looks much better on the Remaster. No wonder I had no idea what the hell was going on back in 1999 lol

                                            The story of the overrated FF8 is a over complicated mess, FF7 still has way better story and gameplay. I am almost 40 now, i played every single FF game as they came on the market and i never came to like FF8. The main problem is that coming after the 7 there was no way you could enjoy it as much. FF9 was again a good one, then from FF10 onward is just shit with a stupid story and gameplay.

                                                    This game is such garbage. Gameplay , story, and eyes on me are just terrible. I don’t get the fan base it has. From all of the final fantasy games this fits last place from worst to best.

                                                              Basically, if Ultimecia had minded her own business, she would have remained unopposed forever. She even helped the definitive destruction of Adel in the present time! In fact, shouldn't Ultimecia have noticed that Adel was no longer in space on her era? And Ellone easily was able to cut her from Kontrol anyway.

Obviously their magnets will always be the strongest no matter what people do, but there are situations that could benefit from their knowhow stop trying to censor these people, you're going to end up looking bad. Societies need these people to set intellectual bars/benchmarks.

                                                                                              I don't know where you get your pronunciation - Not that it's ever said but just logically - "Ellone" is usually pronounced like you say it but with a long 'e' after like "Ellony" - I mean nobody is ever named "Ellone" in real life but neither Rinoa, Zell, or Quistis. You said Quistis with a "K" sound for "Qu" whereas I say it with a Qu sound like "Quit" - One doesn't say "Kit" for "Quit", but I ignored it at first because it's close enough but hearing "Ellone" as "Ellone" as if the last 'e' is silent, I had to bring it up lol :-P

                                                                                              Also - where do you get that Squall is Laguna's son with Raine? Where's your source??
