I think I didn't feel this much cringe when I played FF7 in Japanese. Playing FF8 in English or Japanese is just cringe. I'm having buyers remorse. 8 is the worst Final Fantasy..

12 wasn't too bad. The story was pretty okay. I might like it more now that I'm into the occult and esoteric religions.

I've seen cringey dialogue, and VIII doesn't even come close. X, certainly, but not VIII.

As with any rpg imo, dialogue sucks.. Gameplay matters.

It's just the opposite in my view. The characters in this game have a reality to them that is lacking in FFVII and IX; it is one of the games biggest strengths.

If you think "dialogue sucks" in "any RPG," you haven't played many RPGs. And yes, it does matter; engrossing stories are what separate RPGs (especially JRPGs) from other genres.

I certainly have played many rpg's. I'm waiting for a remaster of chrono trigger ')

Yeah, as much as I love FFX some parts in that game were pure embarrassing. One that ALWAYS comes to mind is that stupid laugh scene between Tidus and Yuna. Goddd. *facepalms* Nothing in FFVIII even remotely comes close to that level of cringe.
