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.

That FF8 academy was effing gorgeous and forever tainted my view of any real world institution. I got to Disc 3 before getting stuck and quitting.

@Verrayne: Good luck with it! I look forward to an update on the proposal. :)

@Verrayne: Fantastic! Congratulations!

I know you knew she would say "yes", but I'm sure it's still a relief to know know. ha. :)

I had a similar experience but with FFVII, it was the first RPG I played and it blew my mind

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.

Congratulations duder! As for my experience with FF8, I played it back when I was 11 years old. I was enjoying it up to the part where you had to find the White SeeD ship. I spent hours looking for that thing and ended up giving up.

Awesome story, I'm happy for you and for your experience with FF8!

I had a similar 'breakthrough' with FF6 back in the days and while it's not related, I am happily married now.

I love FFVIII; what a feel good thread. Hope we get some sort of remake/polish job on it soon to make it a bit more playable in the HD era.

@Verrayne: I know it isn't Final Fantasy VIII, but it's close enough. Have you considered this for your wedding music?
