I got FFVIII around the time I was 14 too! GameStop had a buy 2 get 1 free sale, and I got FFVIII in mint condition for free. I played until the end of the first disc when I was about 15, and didn’t get much of it either. Now I really want to play it
ooh if you do play it I’d love to know your feelings about it, it’s a game very close to my heart!
