While I’ve never talked about Final Fantasy VIII on this blog before, I do really like the game. Or rather, I like the first half of it. For whatever reason, I tend to lose interest somewhere during the second disc. I think that is in part due to the battle system. FFVIII’s battle system, use of magic, and summons makes it a bit more confusing than other Final Fantasy games. It is, thankfully, something that you can get the hang of fairly quickly, but in many ways it was needlessly complicated. It was also nonsensical, especially when it comes to magic.
