  1. It's been 23 years since Final Fantasy VIII released. That's a long long time! This is still my favorite Square RPG of all time and perhaps my favorite game of all time. It's definitely in my top 5. I truly believe that one day it will get the full remake treatment. Square has to know that they're sitting on a goldmine with Final Fantasy 6-10. They could a honestly remake all these games and make a ton of money. I'm not just talking remakes either. They could do sequels, anime series and movies. They could charge $60 for each one and fans would still buy it. I truly believe that.
  2. This list was a lot harder to make then it looks and I'm still not totally satisfied with it. That being said, I feel like it covers a lot of ground and probably looks a lot different than most other people's top 5. Fallout, The Witcher and Mass Effect get honorable mentions. I know Mass Effect fans will roll their eyes. For the record I love the Mass Effect franchise(I've even warmed up to andromeda) but I can only pick 5!😅 I tried to get into Baldur's Gate back in the day and I just couldn't do it. I think Bethesda's upcoming RPG Starfield is going to be the next classic! So without further ado, in no particular order, here is my list! Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Everyone was taking arrows to the knee when Skyrim first came out! It's a modern day classic. The expansions only added more goodies to the mix. The perfect open world game for its time! Final Fantasy 7 I think Final Fantasy 7 has been released on every PlayStation console since the original came out way back in 1997. Due to its popularity we've gotten a movie and multiple spinoffs and finally a 4k remake! For many this game is the greatest RPG of all time. Final Fantasy 8 This is probably my most controversial pick. Final Fantasy 8 has plenty of fans but there are a number of Final Fantasy fans that seem to have a love hate relationship with the game. I loved the story even more than Final Fantasy 7 as this one felt more personal. In 7 we are trying to save the world, in 8 we are trying to save our notion of time itself! Mixed in between are a few young adults trying to recover their memories and find themselves. Dragon Age Origins I wish the Dragon Age franchise would go back to this style of storytelling. Dragon Age Origins is easily the best Dragon Age game in the entire franchise. I like the improvements to combat that have been made in Dragon Age Inquisition but their is something special about the way the plot in Dragon Age Origins is connected to the gameplay and player choices. At the start of the game your character has a unique origin story that plays out over about 15 minutes. This origin will have an impact on how your story unfolds later. And then of course the overall choices that we make in Dragon Age Origins feel way more impactful then the other Dragon Age games. Especially the ones we make at the end. Star Wars Galaxies This is still my favorite MMORPG of all time. Players had a number of professions to choose from. You could be a bounty hunter, commando, trader, smuggler, medic and more! Players could survey for resources and set up mining operations, we could design weapons and armor. And if you were extremely lucky, you accidently unlock the force and start training to be a Jedi. It was a well thought out game that attempted to bring the Star Wars universe to life for players.
  3. Additional Things I'd Like to See Living The Garden Life I would love to see an expansion of Squall's time training in the garden. In this game I feel like Square did a great job of making the player feel like they were the main character. Not only do we make choices as Squall but we also get treated to little thought bubbles showing what Squall is thinking of inside his head. I always felt like the events in FF8 happened so fast it would have been nice to kind of just live the garden life, training and then really take that time to show why Squall is exceptional and really give the game some time to ratchet up the rivalry between Squall and Seifer before everything goes crazy. Think of it almost like Harry Potter Malfoy we get to see those two despise each other through the years and really snipe at each other as they grow up. Laguna's Story I've read in the past that Laguna's story was supposed to be longer. It would be nice if it was a little more fleshed out. I'll readily admit those parts weren't my favorite bit but they always did feel a little incomplete. Give Squall and Rinoa a Little More Time Together As much as I enjoyed the original their relationship seemed a little rushed almost as if a switched had been pulled and it was time for Squall to start showing a lot more empathy. There are some really beautiful moments in this game, I think of the railroad scene when we are walking to Eshar, the Ragnorark scene while going back down to earth or the I'll come running scene at the orphanage their is some great stuff in there that will look absolutely amazing with next gen graphics. The Sorceress' and Their Power There is a popular fan theory that links Rinoa to Ultimecia and based on some of the earlier scenes in the game these actually do have a decent amount of meat to them. I'd be 100% on board if the devs decided to make this theory 100% canon in the remake it would be an awesome twist. But this idea brings me to a larger question. Where does Ultimecia's power come from? Where did Adel's power come from? Why is Ultimecia so powerful? If any Final Fantasy game was remade with different or simultaneous timelines it should have been this game as time travel and future event altering is already part of the fabric of the original game. That's not a gripe on Final Fantasy 7 Remake but I thought that it was an interesting thing to point out. The Mysteries As awesome as Final Fantasy 8 was, when compared to 7, one thing I felt it was lacking were secrets and mystery's that you could discover. In FF7 it was nice to discover Vincent. It was an out of nowhere surprise and having him join your party was totally optional! And then discovering Knights of the Round was awesome as well. Not to mention fighting the planetary weapons, or even the Midgar Zolom. On my first playthrough, I didn't even consider training enough to beat it. My point is FF8 needs a few more random, optional moments like these. Let's hope that Square is already hard at work on the design docs to make a remake a reality!
