It's a shame for the people that haven't played FF8. It represented a time when FF was really, REALLY good. Jun 20, 2017 at 3:38 PM

        FF8 is a PS1 game, and while the translation is rough it is far better than the previous games. However, there is no voice acting in that game so its all text. Even as a native speaker, it has some very challenging concepts to understand as far as story goes. That makes it a masterpiece, but also a nightmare for some people to follow towards the end.

        Omega Weapon was tough, but still a good challenge (could cheese him if you wanted).

        I agree, pretty underwhelming. Beyond Good & Evil 2 was the only pleasant surprise.

        ^Shadow of Colossus remake was nice as well but it honestly took me a bit to realize it wasn't just another HD port like KH because the ps2 game still looks amazing to this day so it's not a huge difference

        Yeah, it wasn't terrible. I'm excited for the Shadow of the Colossus remake, Days Gone, Horizon DLC, and LocoRoco 2, but nothing blew me away. No Soul Calibur 6, no Bloodborne 2, stuff like that.

        I will take some occasional clipping over stars, zig zags and bright blurry colors to cover up the lack of it.

      Avoid the Puddle? Uh... how about avoid Tekken. "Why can't we all..." because the Tekken community is mean and they aren't worth our time.

        @Force_of_Nature isn't this pretty much the case for any fighting game that's not Street Fighter?

        Not necessarily. Tekken elitists tend to be more defensive than say, anime fighter fans. The thing with Tekken is that it plays fairly differently to the other 3D fighters with not having a guard button and the whole LP, RP, LK, RK attack command thing. The game is also considerably more complex than the average 2D fighter. This can turn off quite a bit of people from the game.

        I've learned to stay away. They have said some nasty things about DOA, especially that puddle of mud bald ass viking guy. The perfect depiction of that fanbase.

        The Limit Break system needs to be reworked and Aura needs to be removed. Omega Weapon is always a bitch unless you abuse Aura or Hero items.

        An alternate way around Omega's unique physical attack is using the Defend ability from Carbuncle. But there's nothing you can do about Light Pillar without Hero or Rinoa's Limit Break that makes characters invisible.

        Every FF has something you can exploit. FFVI was a great but the evasion bug haunted it for years and then it was fixed but was given a meh do over... or how about just farming Genji gloves. Battles last on average 5-10 seconds... FFVIII battles can take a lot longer than that. It's your choice whether or not you want to spam Junction Ultima from Shumi.

        Item sorting, ability swapping helps with my OCD.

        At large. To make things simple -- it's really not worth it. I've learned it doesn't matter if the person I'm opening up to is incredibly smart or flat -- the only person that is going to understand any of my complexities is myself.

        I spent a long time working on my confidence and became somewhat of a dick because of it, but at least thoughtful. I felt like the saying of you must first love yourself before someone can love you was a true statement. I'm not sure that it is anymore. Maybe it's the other way around.

        Most say 4 is the best.

        Gota say though, I much prefer BoF 3. Watching Ryu grow up to be a badass through all of that trauma was cool.

    Out of all of the gaming communities out there it was clear to me that Team NINJA's offline offering and tied-in universe would be the one I delve myself into completely. Tomonobu Itagaki is my idol, and a fiery and passionate individual like myself. He has created some of my favorite games: Dead or Alive 2 and Ninja Gaiden Black. I've been writing about both series since the early 2000s and I continue to today here at FreeStepDodge and I will never leave.

    My approach at selecting a main has always been simple: the boss character. TN has done such an amazing job at crafting villains with each DOA installment. From a lightning fast energy clone to a big, snarky muscular demon, I am covered on diversity.
