I'm too lazy to make a video on the subject, so I'll type out the review instead.
I recently played the PlayStation version of Final Fantasy VIII on my PS3 through PSN the other day, and I beat it last night, making it the second game in the series I've beaten. The other was VII.
Overall it was very enjoyable, but there are some minor flaws I'll go into later on.
Graphically the game looks fantastic. The CGI cutscenes were top notch, and the graphical presentation as a whole was brilliant.
In terms of music, this game has one of the best soundtracks in the entire Final Fantasy series. Uematsu really did a great job.
Gameplay-wise it was addicting. I really enjoyed the junction system but it is too easily abusable, and so I found the game to be REALLY easy. The only boss that gave me trouble was the final boss who selects random party members, and that's a shit design choice IMO.
The story, while it had plotholes, and the whole Ragnarok appearing from nowhere was bullshit, was still enjoyable. I could nitpick things but really, it's a japanese game. For all we know something was mistranslated or something. Either way, I found it to be fun.
Newcomers might be confused by the idea of GFs, junctioning and Drawing Magic.
A feature in this game I loved was the card game. It's really, REALLY fun to play, at least with the Open and Diff rules. The card game is mostly if not totally optional, but you'll want it to get powerful early on. IT's worth the time, as you can simply breeze through the game as long as you keep your levels below 20.
