FFVIII did come to Windows in 2000, but some players thought the port subpar.

DISCUSSION

This game is terrible. Leveling system was awful, the draw system was painful, the characters all fill the anime high school archetypes (except there's a male tsundere instead of a female), the card game was silly, and the plot was decent at best.

Do people like this game because there's a stigma against liking Final Fantasy VII (Which was all-around decent, but overrated), or is it the nostalgia factor? Because this game is in the bottom 3, along with Final Fantasy II and Final Fantasy XIII.
