How Final Fantasy VIII Changed my life
But it was because of this great game that I've been dating the woman of my dreams for the past 2 years! Tonight I'm getting her ring and will ask her to marry me this weekend. Were it not for this game it might never have happened.
I hope she says yes!
That game also hit me at a pretty interesting time in my life. I think in our early teenage years we're more open to storytelling of that nature. We haven't yet become cynical bastards and can enjoy a cheesy, sappy love story like FFVIII. Good read. Makes me yearn for more innocent times.
As an aloof, introverted teenager with abandonment issues who spent the majority of his time alone in his room wrapped up in his thoughts, Squall was something I'd never played as; myself. It wasn't until about five years later when I realized what was really going on in that game.
