    Incoming for the Dreamcast.

    It literally has no ending. Or beginning, for that matter. It's in a loop, haha.

    FF8 was okay, but the characters weren't my favorite. When someone is as angsty as Squall, I figure that they'll have some legitimate childhood trauma to back it up. But when you find out what actually happened to him... definitely not horrible enough to warrant him being such an asshole.

    Also, I didn't really like the world, all that much. I think I must have seen it as too similar to our own; part of what compelled me about FF9 was that it really seemed like a magical fantasy realm, in the European-style storybook sense -- but at the same time, it's all about conquest and realpolitik, which the wonk in me gets a real kick out of.

    As for the card game... I don't think I like any of the FF minigames. Chocobo racing was annoying, all the card games were annoying, blitzball was annoying.

    And all FPS.. mostly because I really, really suck at FPS games. The controls and the first-person view just really mess with me for some reason.
    Oh god, me too. I don't even try anymore.

    That was another one I could never finish! Donkey Kong Country for Game Boy Color.

    Interesting perspective! I tend to like flawed characters... and I used to relate a lot to Squall. I think he was an asshole when dealing with Zell, but for the most part, I just think he was clueless about people's feelings.

    The world was indeed pretty interesting. Still, I found the main characters too mundane... .

    Also, I love side games. Specially when the side games are even more addicting than the main game (e.g. FF7's battle arena, FF8's triple triad). :P

    @EJCC, FF8 was the epitome of PlayStation era RPG's.

    Donkey Kong land for my original old, yellow, weighs half a ton and takes 4 AA batteries game boy.

    That game was ridiculously huge...it had more worlds than the universe in a box episode from Futurama. Not to mention you died in one hit to ANYTHING. Which was great later on when the game decided to throw immortal wasps at you every 3 seconds.

    Then again I was a child when I had this game so maybe this is all exaggerated from a child memory. I also had Donkey Kong country as well on GB colour as some others here have, that was a brain ache too.

    Donkey Kong land did make up for it with this song though:



    Actually most of it's soundtrack was wonderful.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Suppose a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"
    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.
    - A.A. Milne.

    I am currently playing through dishonored at the hardest difficulty and making the ghost achievement a requirement. If someone sees me, I load the previous save.

    It's challenging, but so far not too hard.

    Also, anybody ever play Actraiser 2? Even the easy option was extrordinarily difficult, and I don't remember ever beating it.

    There is also Illbleed for the Dreamcast....I did manage to beat that, but only with extreme difficulty.

    Without Gamefaqs, I'd never have gotten past some of the puzzles in the Silent Hill series.

    Then of course, there's the original Ghost n' Goblins...

    I could never understand why so many people thought Castevania IV was difficult, however....

    Wizardry 8 on the PC, because it's huge, repetitive and frequently difficult. I get sick of being stunned, blinded, paralysed, nauseated, driven insane and then killed.

    Hard to think of anything that's actually all that 'unbeatable' (except for like old broken Nintendo games)

    Trauma Center is pretty frickin hard though. Also Advance Wars Dual Strike.

    Warsong on the Sega Genesis was also incredibly hard due to it's straight progression and no way to go back and level up. If you don't play optimally from the very start of the game, you are screwed.

    Bullet hell shooters like DoDonPachi and Touhou are also rather insane in comparison to more western shooter counterparts - Touhou being the series that spawned the mocking "Eeeeeh? Iisi Moodo?!" meme, it's mocking because easy mode is supposed to be for kids and old ladies but is actually pretty fucking hard if you approach it as a casual player. Lunatic level is also aptly named.

    He was intentionally horrible to Quistis, too. I dunno. I still crushed on him a little, but I dunno. It made more sense with Cloud and Zidane.

    The world was indeed pretty interesting. Still, I found the main characters too mundane... .
    Some of them are pretty one-dimensional... But others, especially Zidane, get WAY more interesting by disc 3 or 4! (Also, as an ESTJ, there's a special place in my heart for Steiner. )
    Also, I love side games. Specially when the side games are even more addicting than the main game (e.g. FF7's battle arena, FF8's triple triad). :P
    I don't remember the battle arena. I resent chocobo breeding, though, because a glitch in the chocobo breeding system in my copy of the game is what kept me from being able to finish it.

    More so than FF7 or 9? Why?
