Final Fantasy 8 or Final Fantasy 9? Which is better?

When I was 13 I thought VIII, had a better story, Now that I'm 23 I can see the maturity in IX.

Wow, just played FFIX for almost 2 hours straight and for some reason it seems a lot better on the Vita than on TV. Maybe it's the smaller screen or something but I am enjoying the game 10 times more.


If you have an hd tv then most non hd games look pretty bad. Playing them on a smaller screen actually does help them look better.


i'd say IX. the drawing system in VIII was booooring, but after a while, u can synthesize items into magic, which speeds up the process, somehow. better to farm items than trying to draw 2-3 firagas at a time...

i liked VIII's story, but for some reason, couldn't care less about what was happening to any of the characters.

whenever possible, i play ps1 roms on the pc, connected to the hd tv via hdmi. awesome graphics, even better than the best tv with the best wiring during the psone's days^^

VIII is my favorite though I like IX quite a bit. VIII is an acquired taste and receives alot of hate, sort of reminds me of the response Zelda II normally receives.

Oh god. FF9's strategy guide. Who ever thought of that I hope got fired from who ever handled that thing. That was literally the worst idea ever. If you have the internet, there's no reason to buy the guide.

fortunately for me, I didn't buy the guide, but I did borrow one of my friend's copies.


Was it that bad? Lemme guess, incorrect info right?

Things probably bad for Vita, if you discuss 15-years old games here...

They both suck, but 8 sucked the worst out of all. Hated that game with a passion. Could never pass it, story was so bad.


Agreed. FF VII is the only FF worth playing, all of the others are garbage.


Almost every game in the series is better than 7. 7 was just hyped so much more than any other game, being one of the first 3D RPGS and all. If we had already gotten 2, 3, and 5 before we got 7, opinions and hype definitely would be different.

Personally, I prefer IX, but I can see why some people would go for VIII. If you like junctioning and the spell system, go ahead and choose VIII.

I liked the aesthetic of 9 and prefer it overall, but 8's junction system allowed for some nice abuse.

I believe I was able to put zombify onto an attack-all weapon and then some other character had an mp-free life-all spell that I could aim at the enemy. Any pack of mobs would be dead in one turn. Two if my attacks weren't coordinated.
