A beloved Final Fantasy favourite heads to PC in Japan next week

Similar to the PC version of Final Fantasy VII, FFVIII on PC includes several booster modes that increase spell count, damage dealt and an option to speed the game up quite a bit.

Final Fantasy VIII

faunyoudork 8th-May-2014 05:46 pm (UTC)
uh yeah, you think Nintendo FFs are the only classics?
wauwy 8th-May-2014 05:49 pm (UTC)
That would be the definition, yes.

FF7 and beyond is next-gen or Silver Age, f y i
manubibi 8th-May-2014 07:05 pm (UTC)
I'd say "classic FF" means "when Sakaguchi was still in charge/a producer". IMHO. So I'd consider all the game until FFIX "classics", and the others I'd define them as new school or something. So to me, you are right.

hdu, Squall's emo character was flawless and the Junction system was an innovator of its time

nnn bitch the nerve
manubibi 8th-May-2014 07:06 pm (UTC)
FFVIII was awful tbh. Probably the weakest chapter I've ever played. I mean, even FFI was more interesting lol

I don't give a shit what anyone says about this game, it's still my favorite Final Fantasy.

faunyoudork 8th-May-2014 05:47 pm (UTC)
Stan it <3

I haven't played it in years, so I don't count myself as ever playing it. I was so little when I beat it, I don't remember a thing. But I know I loved it and I need it in my life again. I'm just too poor to order it online right now :(
cordyceps 8th-May-2014 05:48 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it happens. I mean, it's such a mindfuck and not the most 'fun' Final Fantasy but I love meme theory and time travel shenanigans (hence why MGS2 is one of my other all-time favorite games), and I really identify with Squall, so... it has a special place in my heart. Definitely worth playing again, if not just for the iconic line: "And Rinoa was lost in space... forever."

PS1 emulators are super easy to find and unless your computer is also from 1999 it should be able to run FF8 on one just fine
hauntao 8th-May-2014 05:55 pm (UTC)
Mine too! I get so much shit for it.
lostinshalott 8th-May-2014 06:06 pm (UTC)

I like your flawless taste <3
mezelphie 9th-May-2014 08:39 am (UTC)
I LOVE FFVIII, it's the Final Fantasy game that got me into the series <3. Selphie!!!!!
beatofmy_drum 8th-May-2014 05:47 pm (UTC)
I can't believe I've never played a final fantasy game. It never really appealed to me. Probably because I never knew the plot for any of these games.
wauwy 8th-May-2014 05:49 pm (UTC)
Don't start with this one
saintvlas22 8th-May-2014 06:18 pm (UTC)
I started with this one. It was haaard
beatofmy_drum 9th-May-2014 04:36 am (UTC)
lol this is the one everyone was freaking out over when i was young.
immaflirt 9th-May-2014 04:19 pm (UTC)
lmao yes
faunyoudork 8th-May-2014 05:50 pm (UTC)
Aw man, I feel like there's a Final Fantasy for everyone who doesn't hate RPGs. Some of the most loved FFs are still so very hated by many fans, and some of the most hated are still so very loved.

Are you interested in ever playing Final Fantasy?
onhold4u 8th-May-2014 05:50 pm (UTC)
I only like X and X-2.
Mostly X-2.
cordyceps 8th-May-2014 05:51 pm (UTC)
I would start with FF10 if I were you, maybe?
celestinaketzia 8th-May-2014 06:04 pm (UTC)
Start with X. Everyone seems to hate on it, but in terms of the world's universe, it's one of my favorites. I've never gotten so invested in the characters despite the annoying voice acting.
gorlplz 8th-May-2014 06:39 pm (UTC)
start with ix or vii

followed by viii or x
manubibi 8th-May-2014 07:13 pm (UTC)
I recommend you start with FFX or FFIX if you ever wanna get into it. FFIX relies more on "classic" fantasy imagery, while FFX is a bit more modern. Or then, if you can stand outdated graphics I strongly recommend FFVI. It's very, very easy all in all, but you'll probably need a guide especially from the second part onwards. Not to mention it's considered the best Final Fantasy by basically everybody :)

My first Final Fantasy omigahh, changed my life

I still remember all those Anti-Rinoa fansites
faunyoudork 8th-May-2014 05:51 pm (UTC)
lol those always made me so sad, I thought she was qt and I loved her wardrobe. So comfy looking
blissey 8th-May-2014 05:54 pm (UTC)
and they were always like "Squall belongs with Seiferrrrrr" and it was so OTT for a character who was just kind of bland at the worst
gorlplz 8th-May-2014 06:39 pm (UTC)
my first too <3
onhold4u 8th-May-2014 05:49 pm (UTC)
I tried to play this but like most final fantasy games, the battle system is too slow I can't handle it.
vapor 8th-May-2014 05:50 pm (UTC)

I actually never finished this game and I don't know where my copy is, though I still have my original PS
chibi 8th-May-2014 05:51 pm (UTC)

exalting Re: <38th-May-2014 06:01 pm (UTC)
You're making me feel nostalgic for the days when I was young and had an abundance of games I actually wanted to play.
splatney Re: <38th-May-2014 07:50 pm (UTC)
That backdrop though. It's essentially a tiny room with a wall with nature motifs. It's interesting how we didn't notice this as kids and thought it was some huge plains back there.
atomicdogmeat 8th-May-2014 05:51 pm (UTC)
Here for Quistis

vector_pole 8th-May-2014 05:55 pm (UTC)
I never really cared for X-2's story but I loved the battle system.
faunyoudork 8th-May-2014 05:58 pm (UTC)
I thought the same until I replayed it through the remaster. It's really flawed. They tried to make it look busy and like nonstop fighting, but it's still a turn-based system when it comes to commands that require a wait time.

What's worse is when you desperately need one of the girls to make their move (usually healing) and they just have to throw in one of their battle quotes, which extends the wait-time, and highers your chances of getting hit/killed.

They should have fixed that in the remaster.
blissey 8th-May-2014 05:55 pm (UTC)
OH OH OH! and its fandom introduced me to dirty fanfiction, I still remember the name of the site I always went to aw gawdd teenage flashbacks
iprevail 8th-May-2014 05:56 pm (UTC)

celestinaketzia 8th-May-2014 06:02 pm (UTC)

I remember stumbling onto Ozuma by accident and the results were terrible.
rakugaking 8th-May-2014 06:12 pm (UTC)
I cried after meeting Ozuma for the first time.
gorlplz 8th-May-2014 06:40 pm (UTC)

saintvlas22 8th-May-2014 06:19 pm (UTC)
I'm not over Vivi's ending =(
quiveringbeaver 8th-May-2014 06:37 pm (UTC)
I was so hoping that this was going to be for IX when I first saw the title. :(
manubibi 8th-May-2014 07:16 pm (UTC)
Bless this comment. FFIX is my fave right after FFVI :")
splatney 8th-May-2014 07:53 pm (UTC)
Literally my dream
minervention 9th-May-2014 05:44 am (UTC)
They need to do this and make a remake of VI.
celestinaketzia 8th-May-2014 06:01 pm (UTC)
hrewhgdfs I am here for this and ship Squall x Quistis. Move the fuck out of the way Rinoa.

I want FF9 on the PC tho. :(
