FFVIII: Find Your Way by Lukael-Art FFVIII: Find Your Way by Lukael-Art
8th one! I'm.... not really sure if I like that one... Kind of a clusterfuck, but... oh well.

I know I'm gonna get heat for this but... I really don't like FFVIII. :I To me it's probably the worst of the series. I don't like any of the characters and the plot just makes NO SENSE. The world is boring and empty, and the battle system is just annoyingly complicated. But oh well, some people like it, and that's okay.

Kind of went with a design more similar to his Kingdom Hearts one for Squall, because it looks WAY better than his Dissidia or FFVIII one. It's kind of a mix of all of them.

Personally, the story kind of lost me after disk one (you know after Squall gets impaled with the Icicle by Edea) and it got all "wibbly wobbly timey whimey" on me. At least that wasn't as bad as say XIII-2. Ugh, that was a headache of a time travel story. "You change the future you change the past" was just plain silly. At least FF8 didn't do THAT.

As for characters, Squall kind of lost me when he started getting obsessed over Rinoa, never cared for Rinoa, Meh on Zell and Irine, Seifer was a pain in the ass, Quistis was underutilized, Selphie belongs in the "Insert annoying kooky girl" jar and Laguna was awesome.

Agreed with the battle system though. One of the worst due to the over complication of it.

Well...one good thing about ffVIII was the Moombas. Funny thing is...Axel looks like he's modeled after a Moomba (the red spikey hair) and his Organization number was VIII....haha just something i noticed.

For not liking Squall, you did a wonderful job drawing him :clap:

I must admit... I have the game but have never really played it, though in the Kingdom Hearts series, I really liked Leon xD
Well... I liked him when I liked Kingdom Hearts I guess I should say, lol. The series just got way out of wack.

Bwahah, well I can't let my personal tastes affect my series :B I had to draw him along with the rest, for there are fans of VIII as well! I also liked him in KH, but you're right, that series got real ridiculous.

...Yeah, not a fan of VIII. The only thing that kept me playing that game was Laguna's backstory.

And I dislike Squall and Rinoa's romance. Felt forced and out of the blue. Apparently, whining and angsting about yourself is bad, but whining and angsting about a dumb girl who always needs rescuing is AOK.

I totally agree. :I
It really pisses me off that the selling point of 8 was OMG romance, they had them hug in the logo and stuff, but actually, ANY OTHER ROMANCE IN THE FINAL FANTASY SERIES is better than this one. This one is SO forced, and SO sudden, eugh.

I don't like FF8 either. I like some of the characters like Squall. The story & battle system could've been better. I hated how enemies would level up along with the characters, which takes the fun out of things.

I particularly hate Squall. I hate the empty world map. I hate the way they have fucking slingshots that throw you in space but haven't had working TVS in years. I hate how all the characters come from the same place, which is amazingly lazy AND stupid story writing. I hate the fact even though the romance is supposed to be the main point in the plot, it's completely spontaneous and unexplained. And I hate about 298356369865 other things about the game. The only thing I like is the music.

Don't forget that they didn't really explain Ultimecia & Adel very well either which was annoying. I hate how baddies like Ultimecia, Necron from FFIX, & Cloud of Darkness from FFIII appear out of nowhere. You're right about the crappy story. Out of the 3 FF games released for the original Playstation, FF8 was the worst. FFIX was a lot better.
