The thing with FF games (and every other RPG for that matter) is that people's opinions on them are very, very different. I, personally, enjoyed FF8. It's well-made with a good story, pretty good characters and I really like the Junction system for magic. However, a lot of people don't like it, because to them the story is boring, the characters are cliche, and the Junction magic system is tedious. FF8 is also a lot lighter than FF7, it's not nearly as dark and depressing, and as a result it's not as deep (in my opinion anyway). I really liked FF8 though, it's fun and enjoyable, so hopefully you'll enjoy it as well.

Yeah! It's a cool game. But not as good as FF7 or FFX.
