If you have the time to get into a story then please make it a Final Fantasy game. These games have always been known for their beauty and revolutionary turn-based gameplay.
Though Final Fantasy 8 doesn't bring much new gameplay to the series, it brings characterization to a whole new level. You will learn to love the characters in FF8 and you definitely should play it on PC, even if you had already played it on the old PlayStation.
Rated 10 out of 10 by TravisAKAWolf Best Final Fantasy EVER!
Sure there was a lot of hype for 7 but I feel 8 is the best one yet. The graphics are superior, story is superior, and not to mention character interactions. For example, there are point of times in the game where YOU decide what he says/reacts in the game. When it was released on the original PS one, it was a 4 disk game to give you a idea of how long it is. And yes, I still have that copy. You won't regret this game. This is perhaps my favorite game of all time. Enemies level up with you. So you're always at a challenge in battle. Cut scenes are just mind blowing. Just when you think you have the concept of the story you get side struck by a sudden twist. You won't regret this purchase.

I have played this game since the original release date. I have played the game countless time from beginning to end and im still not tired of it. You can not play this game like final fantasy 7 or you will be highly disappointed but i have never played a final fantasy game that have been completely similar. Give this game a fair chance and you will see for yourself!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Leo1Dude One of the best Final Fantasy games. FF8
Final Fantasy 8 is such an excellent game. It came out with for PlayStation One. They remade a version greatest hits which also sold out fast. Online PlayStation network Final Fantasy fans can download this game for PSP GO, PlayStation 3, and I heard also for PSP Vita. Final Fantasy fans, you will love this game. Just because I am such a big fan of Final Fantasy 8. Some of my friends already bought the downloadable version of Final Fantasy 8.
Rated 1 out of 10 by what216 Horrible Game
FF8 was nothing specia. FF8 had a really bad story that lacked substance and aside from squall the characters were very boring and uninteresting. I felt like I was trying to play the video game version of a teeny bopper movie.
Rated 10 out of 10 by nauxwarr Great Game
It is my personal favorite final fantasy game. It takes time to beat, a few months if you do not just play it. But it has great character development.
