I voted for "No, I've played other Final Fantasy titles, but never FF8".

I never really got into the series, though I did play about half-way through the Japanese FFV.

I've never played even a bit of VIII. I don't think I've ever seen any footage of it either.
I like video games. They're pretty good.

I answered as if it was FF XIII, but, I guess, pretty much the same... played just the intro of XIII and shelved it, played halfway in VIII. I become less and less tolerant of Final Fantasy, wastes of time when there are so many better games.

Yes, played through at least 3 times over the years. It took a very long time before Triple Triad and the Junction System finally clicked with me.

Yep my favorite game of the series and one of my favorites of all time. I play it at least once a year and its really the only reason my PS2 is still hooked up. Wish theyd bring it to PS4 already. Just ditch the worst song of the game if its copyright is actually whats causing the issue.

I have played VIII, and every other numbered title except the MMOs (and only played a tiny bit of XII), and I've played many of the spinoffs.

Only played VIII once however, story was alright but the gameplay was kind of weird, it's a lower tier Final Fantasy for me.

Yes, I've played through and beaten it multiple times

My first FF game and still my favorite. The Junction system took some getting used to (Especially since my English wasn't that good back then, so I had little idea of what I was doing and if I was doing it right) and I didn't like how monsters leveled up with the party, but I still kept coming back for more.

Hell, I still remember setting limits for myself in order to keep things challenging, such as keeping the party at a low level (Not as hard as I would've thought), going for the final boss at a high level (I was around level 70~ IIRC, I don't remember if I succeeded this one to be honest), and limiting myself to only Magic and Guardian Force summons.

Triple Triad was the icing on the cake, though. Back then, Pokemon Trading Card Game and Yugioh were all the rage, but for me, I was quite satisfied to sit indoors and challenge NPCs for their cards. Balamb Garden and Fisherman's Horizon seemed to be my favorite for some reason.

Great game with an amazing mini-game. It really has been too long.
