Now that I think about it, Squall and one or two others may have been closer to 30. Still pretty low, though.

I ended up starting VIII three times before I played it through to the end.

1st Time - Game card crashed and I lost my save.

2nd Time - I was playing around with the card game and suddenly realized that I had abandoned the main quest - so in a hurry to catch up I pushed through to Disc 3. Trying to beat bosses on the Lunatic Pandora at level 36, not a good idea.

3rd Time - I went out of my way to level extensively as much as I could. I picked up every GF, and I maxed out everything. Everything became cake then.

I still have my very first ps1 game card, back from 1997, where I have stored: my FFVIII save just before Ultimecia castle, with all gfs, skills, and triple triad cards, my harvest moon save married with the long hair blondie and like all 7 helpers helping at once...


I have a suitcase that could as well pass for a safe, with 2 passwords, a key and a fingerprint detector, where I keep my documents, precious magazines and THAT game card.
I'd kill, should that gamecard take any damage.

The game is easiest if you DON'T level. The enemies level with you. Get No Encounter ability, draw stuff but don't kill. Makes the game a cakewalk.

Yes, but if you don't level enough to get certain abilities to level with you, it makes it very hard to get by bosses.

I could get to this one point on the Lunatic Pandora where you had to fight Mobile Type 8, and I just couldn't survive long enough to kill him b/c my ability to use Quetzecoatl and other abilities was subpar even with the enemies being closer to my level.

I tried going out and leveling on the monsters from the moon, but it actually was harder b/c the enemies ramp up to higher difficulty once the Lunatic Pandora is loose.

It was actually quicker (and safer for all in my house) with me restarting and just doing everything. Besides, I got to see much more of the game that way.

Phantasy Star was such a better series. The one where you had to play multiple generations with multiple endings being the best.

FF is just one long cutscene.

I got hooked on them at the first Game Boy one. It was great! I played until FFX2. That was seriously the worst game I've ever played in my entire life.

My first FF games I played were for the original Gameboy. I played FF:Legend II and FF:Adventures (which really is The Secret of Mana). I can recall to this day sitting around with my clunky old Gameboy playing both those games. I used to love to play those games.

Ultima Worlds of Adventure: Martian Dreams is hilarious (even if just for the cast).


UO was hot.

Ultima IV was pretty cool.

But that's about it.

Next thing you'll tell me is that SOE should invest in EQ3, the direct sequel to EQ, where as EQ2 will be renamed to EQwtfblackhole.

UO should have been called Anarchy Online. It was a lawless wild west with crossbows and halbreds, and I loved it. Fond memories of blowing people up with trapped boxes.

Played Ultima 8 and had nightmares trying to create the firey enchanty spell things.

I actually played Ultima 4 after 8, and really enjoyed it. Kind of nice to have a game with the entire premise being personal improvement.

UO was the shit.

I remember getting up early on Sundays to catch Chesapeake Bay reset and solo Cave of Despair (where all the earth elementals were, could be wrong about the name) and running out of the place with 10k+ in gold just to have money.
