8 is in my top 3 personal favorite games of all time, right up there with Resident Evil 2 and KotoR.
"A game's worth is not measured by it's replay-value, nor it's length, but by the quality of the experience you had while playing."

9 is my favourite 3D one.
Depends on what you're more familiar to tbh.
For example, if you've played FF7 and it's your favourite, go with 8.
If you've played 4, 5 or 6 and you liked them better, go with 9.
Either way, they're both fantastic. Get them both. :)

I enjoy 8 but if you're short on time and want something familiar to the previous final fantasies, I'd say 9.

I like 8, but many don't like the junction system, draw system, but I like how enemies level up as you do, so it keeps it a challenge most of the game until you mess with the limit break system (which activates based on how much health you have). It has more of a modern theme...with magical monsters.

9 plays easier and has more of a medieval fantasy theme and and plays more like the other final fantasy titles and has a great story.

Just get both since they're on sale and play one for now until you finish it and then start the next one. Both games should be played.
currently playing: COD: Black Ops 2, Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

8 is a much more complex and rewarding game in terms of the combat system. 9 takes a much more simplified old school approach with very little customization available. As for the stories, they're both good. 9 is generally considered to have a better supporting cast, but I find the protagonist of 8 to be considerably better than 9.

Basically do you want old school or experimental?

This is the best advice imo.

I would go with FF8 but only if you enjoyed FF7 and FFX

I like 8 a little more than 9 personally, but you should consider getting both since they're great.
