Re: i hate the weapon system in ff8

Who doesn't hate FFVIII's weapon system?  First of all, you need tons of materials fo weapons, some of them extremely rare.  Second of all, there is no armor or accessories in the game, which just sucks. Third of all, collecting magazines to learn the proper items is also a pain.  Ugh...

First of all, accuser, you have to be the laziest poster ever. There is a little something in english we call punctuation, periods, commas, seimicolons, etc. And of course spelling and grammar.  Look into it. It makes whatever you wrote extremely difficult to read or understand, and even harder top respond to. 

,

A game shouldn't force you to play a minigame PERIOD.  No exceptions.  I hated it in BoF III and I hated it in FFVIII.  Fishing to get items to restore AP? Whatever happened to buying acorns in shops to heal AP? FFVIII's triple triad or constant fights to get items via mugging or dropping and of course drawing. Both are terrible options for a long time RPGer. Play an annoying minigame, or be bored to tears fighting the same enemies over and over again. Rubberband that controller to draw spells! I thought I retired that tool on the NES game Final Fantasy I. Either way, both methods are completely boring and repetitive. The weapon system is horrible, as I've already stated. Vitality isn't the same as having actual armor ever.   Yeah my vitality is high! Doesn't have the same ring as me obtaining the legendary Armor of Radiance for example. Not to mention no accessories.  FFVIII is just a horrible game.

Sorry about the last response. It was a mistake. Anyways, FF8 doesn't really place an emphasis on the weapon system. Even if you get the most powerful weapon for each character, which is pretty difficult, it doesn't raise their attack a whole lot, as it did in FF7. Emphasis in this game centers around GF's, Items, and Junctioning. If you're strong in those three areas, then having the best weapon doesn't really matter.

you are right it did focus on the gf's powers and abilities but the better your weapons the better the limit break so it does matter what one you have to be more powerful

Use the card battle to get the items you need for the weapons and it'll be easier.  You need Quezacotl's card mod.
