In this case:
"I loved it" means that you, obviously, loved the game. You consider it (one of) the best and (one of) your personal favorite(s), a masterpiece, or something along those lines.

"I liked it" means that you liked the game though not enough to consider it (one of) the best. "Pros" outweigh "cons"; you liked many things about the game, but there are things that you didn't like.

"I disliked it" means that you didn't like the game, but you didn't hate it either. "Cons", however, outweigh "pros".

"I hated it" means that you quite literally hated the game; you consider it one of the worst, if not the worst game in the series.

(I think this is enough for now. I don't wanna be marked as a "bot", "troll" or whatever. Others can copy/paste and make it for other games if they want to. If not, I can make a few more tomorrow.)

One of the best in the series, easily. Probably the most unjustly-bashed, too.

Love the setting, world and sountrack. Dislike the story, hate characters, and I especially hated that forced romance.
Overall... Eh, it's not a bad game, so I picked 2nd option.
now playing (waaay too many games): Final Fantasy XIV ARR (PC) / Octopath Traveler (Switch) / Legendary: Game of Heroes (Android)

Hated the scaling in that game and the draw system. Beyond that I enjoyed it.

The game had potential and good foundation but was horribly executed and the romance was horrible to me.

Way better than XIII and XV and whatever crap Square pulls out, but VIII back in the day was somewhat in the same place as them for its time. It was praised widely at first, and for those who started it as their jump into the series they loved it the most. But in retrospect it began to get a lot of complaints and for good reason

The combat system is broken, yes you can choose not to break it but still I ended up doing that anyhow on one particular run without even trying.

But the worst of it all is the cast. Squall is just meh and has barely any personality traits but he was the most developed ironically out of anyone else. I honestly would have said Laguna almost got more depth to me than him had he got more backstory

Rinoa is trash, Quistis, Selphie, and Zell were interesting but pushed aside in favor of the horrible ship that is Squinoa
