Final Fantasy VIII

Beautiful and beloved by those who got to know her, Final Fantasy VIII will always be the step-sister of the PlayStation Final Fantasys. This music video of a JRPG opens with a blast of hot, weird style which wouldn’t be attempted again until The Bouncer. It could have changed the whole trajectory of RPGs with its GF and Draw systems. But they were confusing in their shipped form, explained to the player but never really taught. A shame that its elaborate animated environments, unimpeachable music, and mystic sci-fi story of personal politics would never be enough to follow VII. Alas.
