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.
Music, world, characters, story...all so beautiful.

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, 13.

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.
