Let's talk about FFVIII
Posted: Posted July 9th, 2017 by Angemon
FFVIII was my first final fantasy. I was just 11 back then. I do not understand the Junction system nor the storyline. They were too complicated for me back then.
However, I love FFVIII. I guess everyone falls in love with their first FF, regardless of its flaws and shortcomings. For me, FFVIII is beautiful in every way. The graphic took me away and I never tired of watching the GF attacks (I found myself using Shiva more than i should. Sorry Ifrit). Most of all, it's the storyline and characters. God Square was good at them. I was completely drawn into FFVIII and felt genuinely happy playing them.
I returned to FFVIII a few years later when i was in high school. I understand the Junction and storyline (the time compassion and whatever holyshit) better this time. I enjoyed the game on a completely different level then.
I will never forget how Rinoa and Squall play a part in my life. I liked Rinoa's playful and bright personality so much, as a kid, that i grew up searching for outgoing and bright girls too.
And the music. Well I do not have to go into deep details about that. Everyone loves it.
On a side note, i missed everyone from the original Game Talk, especially those who were in the FFVIII forum. (Silver Wolf, where are thee?)
So guys, how did FFVIII played a part in your life back then? I would love to hear.
