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

IX had a much better story and characters I thought. It wouldn't kill them to implement some new features and more interesting gameplay. Make it optional too, so the purists can be happy too. Hell, port the VIII as well if they can fix the gameplay in that one.

definitely 9.

Definitely IX for me

I really didn't like the draw system in FFVIII , to be honest 8 is the only FF game that I couldn't play for more than 2 hours... I tried to like it but I just couldn't.

FFIX had more of that old school jrpg feel to it, just the fact that you had a little black mage as one of the main characters sold the game for me.

In fact I think I'm going to play IX again soon, I miss the time when FF games had overworld maps, tons of city, merchants, side quests, minigames and secrets. Ahh the golden days, when Hironobu Sakaguchi was in charge of the good square jrpg.

ix by far, few final fantasy games compare iv and maybe vi are the only ones that come close

I haven't finished 9 but I say that one, I love 8 but it takes a special person to like it.

8 is good but the Draw system is annoying.

8 had a better story
9 had better gameplay and mechanics

I like VIII, but IX is my favorite entry in the series.

They both suck.

Play VI or VII.
