As I sit down to write this review, I cannot, for the life of me, remember why I hate Final Fantasy VIII. Then I remember that I actually don’t hate the game as a whole, I just don’t like a single character or think the story is particularly interesting. I do, however, LOVE the game mechanics, especially the customization system. Final Fantasy VIII was released in 1999, and is the one game in the series that fans in Japan want remade more than any other.
