I've picked up FF8 on the sale. I didn't like it the first time around but giving it a second chance to see if my opinion will change. At the very least i get to enjoy Triple Triad again --- Wishes we could go back to the days of gaming where developers released finished products and the consumers weren't QA testers
[...] What about the others on sale, the PSP games, Dissidia I think they're called, are they of a similar gameplay style?
Nope. The Dissidia games are fighting games, but not in the regular sence. They are pretty unique due to their combat mechanics and heavy RPG roots. I spent countles hours on those two. very fun and full of content. It's main USP however lies in it's appeal to fans. There are countless refrences and tributes to all the FF and unless your a fan already most of the stuff isn't rally that special to obtain. There is a demo though so i say check that out. --- How's that for a slice of fried gold? PSN: GoodNewsOke
I guess some would say 8. It's not bad, but not that great either, IMO. Horrible story & characters and a battle system you can break fairly easily.
I'm with you here. I love VIII but there is no denying it's flawed on a number of levels and would frustrate new comers today. VI, VII and IX truly are the must haves IMO assuming you can handle dated graphics. --- PLAYING - Minecraft (360), DmC (PC), ZombiU (WU), Ni No Kuni (PS3) MOST WANTED - FFvsXIII, GTAV, Tales Of Xillia, Lightning Returns
FFVIII is a good game. Its oh so horrible storyline is heavily exaggerated, usually people say so just because of a single plot twist. Disc 1 of FFVIII is also easily the best single disc of a Final Fantasy title pre-PS2. It's unfortunate that the remaining discs are not as compelling but it was a satisfying experience..
