The ballroom dance scene will forever
and FOREVER be the greatest FF moment of
all-time for me. I never thought I'd
ever witness anything so fancy and
stylish in a video game before.
world, characters, story...all so

Was my third favorite, this was actually
the first ff I played but I like them in
this order. 9, 7, 8, 10, 6, 4, 12, 5,

topped it yet

dont understand all the hate for this FF
game this is my favorite and the best
one. I played 1-10 and 13. FFVII isn't
even in my top 5. FFVIII was great cause
you don't need MP, GIL that much, you
can get strong easily, best bosses, best
music, and best scenes.

Pretty disappointing game for me.but
only because VII was so amazing.
