Hey how's it going @Andy and @Creaky I hope everyone is well. I would actually be active here some more andy if you decided to try and get things going again. You didn't have to archive the posts though but I guess that's just your preference. Plus I'm extremely interested in talking to people from the United Kingdom. They seem to be more genuinely educated.
FF8 was my first foray into RPGs. My friend played FF7 and I used to watch, but the characters were all very blocky and I didn't get it. He then started FF8 and I just fell in love with the visuals. FF9 is my favourite but FF8 was great. Don't forget - don't load Seifer up with too much good stuff!
