Final Fantasy VIII – Part 11

The Spoony One | Jul 17 2009 | more notation(s) | 

Creator commentary is here!


In this final part of the review, I attempt to defeat Final Fantasy VIII once and for all using all of my scientific knowledge to compress time. Witness as I bring about the end of an era in this explosive conclusion to my most epic and notorious review.

Nothing will be the same again!

    Damn guess doing the whole game was too much for Spoony but hey it was great while it lasted. I’d love to see him bust out FFX but he’d probably kill himself. Cheers!

    Truly EPIC, even though i liked the game back in the day. Think you might have made a mistake in the credits, as the woman Laguna is hugging is Raine, squalls mom, and not Julia Heartilly.

  • StainedSword

    EPIC.

    A great ending to the whole review. I hope you come back to life soon. :P

    Great conclusion. The only thing I think ya missed was the utter absurdity of Seifer somehow being capable of KILLING ODIN IN A SINGLE HIT despite being totally useless for the entire game…

    But definitely a fun video, and a great end to the series. Can’t wait to see what’s next for the Experiment.

    if you really make a video about franken-spoony with Linkara you may well trump even this glorious and epic conclusion to ff8 with its awesomeness. This and the rest of the ff8 review are your masterpiece. Don’t let it stay that way. Bring us more Spoony and thanks for the update

    It…was…beautiful…

    No, not the song. That was saccharine drivel. I mean the video. I laughed out loud multiple times, and sat through everything but the credits without the desire to flip to another of my open web sites. It IS a bit sad to see the hilarity (of the FFVIII series) end, but without question it was a fitting conclusion. And worth the wait. Congratulations on your new magnum opus.

    Also, condolences for having to sit through it all. The game does, indeed, seem like crap of the highest order.

    “I sleept too loooong” haha, too easy. but that’s what you get when you drink too many drops.

    anyway *whimper* is it over already? awwww, we could have used one or two more, but alas, ’tis was a great run.
    now… you’re allowed some time to rest and gather you energies and focus for the next one… because you are going to rip FFX as well, aren’t you?

    Great review Spoony, surely a worthy conclusion to such an epic review.

    Though too bad you didn’t comment on the final scene of the game, which basically creates an entire time paradox.

    I have walked the plane of existence beginning to end. I have treaded the plain of white standing as a border between existence and nonexistence. And when I transcended into the infinite void that is Oblivion, I saw in the distance universes, and orbs of matter and energy glowing millions of trillions of times as bright as the sun. I saw the universes transcend into dimensions and parallel paths of time. Time and space became simplicities in the wake up dimensions unfathomable by the human mind. I have seen the beginning of all that is and is not, I have seen the end, and everything in between. And I have walked every form of matter that there is and I have felt every force of energy there is to feel.

    And then it all wears off, whatever I am on, and I find myself on a couch in the lounge of a four star hotel with a bottle of vodka in my hand, so messed up I can hardly speak. And I look around at all the millions of people commuting the dark, grimy and disgusting streets of New York, the lightshow monstrosities of Las Vegas, the cultural wasteland of Los Angeles and the drug induced hellhole of Miami and realize that none of it matters at all. It’s perplexing that we discovered the very nature of all existence. And in my travels across every dimension I have discovered that existence in this dimension is special for one reason: because there is Life. Life is merely a complexity of matter and energy, and nothing more. It is no force, nor a scientific condition or a spiritual being. It is not being. It is the complexity of matter which gives birth to an individual collection of matter and energy that is freethinking and capable of controlling matter in and around itself. I have walked dimensions far beyond the comprehension of any human and seen other complexities of matter and energy, and not one has been even nearly comparable to the entity of life.

    But in the end, you will find that is all we are: matter and energy. There will be nothing when you die. When you die, you will be truly free. There will be no feelings, no senses, nothing. Nothing done to you will mean anything. You will be able to do nothing. You will become one with nonexistence. You will become simply matter; free of all possible cruelty, and then you will be truly one with reality.

    You get your point across so incredibly well, Spoony. Many reviewers fail at trying to convey their thoughts and emotions using those little things called words, but you hit everything right on the head and reminded everyone why you’re one the best guys doing vids out there.

    Also I must add this was one of your more creative vids (outside the game review part) you’ve done. Good job.

    Agreed on Final Fantasy X. That game makes FFVIII look like friggin Citizen Kane.

    Had to fast forward the credits, that song makes my brain dissolve. Hope the reanimation goes off without a hitch. We wouldn’t want you to come back with the wrong head or an extra bodypart hanging from your abdomen.

    it´s over, finally. spoony has come a long way, compared with his first clips of ffVIII reviews.
    the best thing in the game was the spaceship. yeah really, the space programm and the space ship they found beats the whole love story thingy, what is supposed to be the story.

    but i can´t help but think that spoony likes FFVIII tough, he is not playing squall, he looks so cute and adorable he is squall! the beginning of an acting career with square enix?
    glory to the experiment!

    So, how about ripping FFX apart? Or maybe do a Let’s Play of FFXIII when it comes out? It just feels wrong to me to let it end like this. Like the NC vs AVGN, it should be Spoony vs FF__.

  • The LegitimateVeteran

    Nice.

  • Locclo

    Fantastic end to a truly epic set of reviews, Spoony. Of all the things I expected, seeing you walk into the room dressed as Squall was not one of them. XD

    Also, for everybody who says FFX was worse than FFVIII, I have to disagree. At least X had a comprehensive storyline, even if it got a little foggy and weird near the end. While I admit the leveling system in X was only *slightly* less abstract than the one in VIII, at least it didn’t require hours upon hours of drawing spells just to junction them to ability scores; everything you needed, you could get as you move from area to area. Plus, the characters had actual CHARACTER to them. They weren’t just blank slates that you could just tack abilities onto and use interchangably. With exception to Kimahri, every character had a good reason to be there for combat.

    Plus, I have to say that X had a decent kick-ass theme song (No, not ‘Suteki Da Ne’) in the beginning. That was a fairly awesome cutscene in the beginning of the game, with Sin attacking Zanarkand and Otherworld playing in the background. Its two biggest flaws were its voice acting and the linearity of the storyline. VIII had much worse problems than that.

    *Just my two cents*

    This is definately a brilliant conclusion. Given the pace you were going at, and how much you obviously didn’t want to keep ranting about the game, if you hadn’t summarized, the review series would probably have ended up having a half-assed conclusion, or simply stalled to death. This is just excellent. You manage to cover all the important points in a compressed time. Not to mention that the “death” of the Spoony One was the most… unexpected series of events I’ve ever seen. And I’m seen plenty of weird shit.

    After Linkara brings you back to life, you should definately get around to doing FFX, since you continually make pot-shots at it. Although I’d say that you should probably wait a while, partly due to the fact that taking on games as big and lengthy as the FF series sucks up a great deal of your time.

    Enjoy your break Spoony, although since this was the “end of the era” that you were discussing, exactly what “came up” that caused you to decide to make this video now?

    Also, I would like at least a quick bit about the ending at some point, if only as a vlog. It is one of the most ridiculous, time-paradox-causing “endings” I’ve seen in a video game. And I’m including the NES games in this, which weren’t exactly known for their awe-inspiring conclusions.

    If anybody really had the awful experience of paying attention towards the ending. You’ll understand that it’s even more convoluted and utterly stupid the ending to FFVIII really is.

    First off. Doc Odine explains that he experimented Ellone when he was working for Adell way back then, and developed a machine that allows people to send their consciousness back in time. AKA the device that allows Ultimecia does this. Now what’s even more ridiculous is that, Laguna didn’t think of this plan. That would require that Laguna has the ability to think beyond his balls. No this horrible plan to destroy Ultimecia is all Odine’s idea. Why? I guess it’s because his dick only responds to whatever machines and devices he’s made.

    And because it would be oh too simple to just destroy the machine that Ultimecia is using to send herself back in time. Laguna’s response to the plan by the way was “I have no idea what (Odine) just said, but it sounds great!” ugh…

    Ultimecia is probably the most powerful Final Fantasy Villain of all time. Even more so than the fucking ExDeath who was a concentrated black hole in the form of a tree. But she’s so head-numbingly retarded that she can’t even speak properly. Oh there’s that theory that she’s probably has some sort of accent, but here’s the monkey wrench in that theory. Everyone in the world speaks the same fucking language. Oh sure there’s probably regional dialects, but considering you’ve treked the entire world, you notice nobody actually speaks in a way where they replace their c’s with k’s.

    I think the theory that she’s just plain retard comes from the fact that when you enter her castle, you can still attack. Has anyone ever thought about this. If she could somehow seal all of your party member’s actions, why oh why can’t she just seal your ability to attack her. I mean I get magic and GFs and any pertaining abilities like Draw, but you can’t use items or limit breaks. Limit breaks which are supposed to be innate traits that pertain solely to each characters. That would mean that’s she herself is retarding you to the point where you can’t do those actions, which again begs the question, why the fuck can you still use your weapons?

    Even further, how the fuck did Squall and the others win? It bugs me even to this day. If she can manifest guardian forces from nothing and fuse herself to it. If she can cast magic that shakes the very foundations of reality, how in the name of Jesus Christ did she lose? I mean she’s up against teenagers who wield swords, nunchucks, chakrams and guns (granted Irvine can fire fucking laser beams from his rifle wtf) but seriously, she wields the power of existance itself.

    This brings up another ridiculous plot point in where somehow Squall and the other managed to survive the destruction of time and space.

    Anyway…wow, I’ve never laughed this hard at one of your reviews before. I really like Bennett’s cameo in particular. “…! FUCK!” And seeing you walk into the room cosplaying as Squall, I actually couldn’t believe what I was seeing, if I hadn’t of froze up at the sight of it I’d probably have died laughing. I recognized the bit from Star Trek 3, too, that was hilarious.

    All in all, I don’t like using the word “epic” lightly, but this was fucking epic. I can’t believe it’s over though, and after just recently discovering this site in the first place.

    I somehow saw the Squall part coming and right then I knew you were going to die. The reason is that my ideal ending was having you dressed as Squall killing you so that the review would end and I would have never guessed you would actually do it.

    Kinda sad that you had to end it all so early. I liked your multiple FF8 reviews.

    BTW, I believe that wasn’t Julia that was with Laguna in the ending scene with the rings and the hugging. I believe it was that bartender girl in that boring town from the flashback with Kiros, Raine something-or-other. But then again, WHO CARES?

    I think it would have been a great story but the potential was really wasted. First of all, people (both the writers and fans) claim that it doesn’t focus on saving the world – that it was about the love story. If that was the case, then WHY IN THE HOLY MOTHER OF FUCK does the love story suck so hard?

    I mean, I can accept saving the world with love, friendship, and happiness. I love that cheesy shit. But is this game really trying to convince me to believe in science, the properties of time and space, chaos theory, AND that love conquers all? Pick one or the other, FF8!

    I think likes to think they’re unbiased about something, looking at both the good and bad – but one can’t be unbiased about everything. THIS game… is something I am very VERY biased about. It sucks, and the only good thing that ever came out of it was Rinoa and Selphie hentai.

    Hmm I have to say I was kind of disappointed at first. It seemed like you were more in rant mode though trying to be funny. Like in the original videos you were not taking the game that seriously an had jokes like the Wild Wild West theme during the big mechanical spider chase. Seemed like you were having fun then but was just bitching about the game an plot holes in this one. But you managed to get me laughing again around the time you ruined the love story with those Seifer/Rinoa hentai images. I honestly hate that people think my user name is a reference to him or that bald guy in the Matrix.

    As for the ending I am wondering did you write the thing in about killing yourself back when you thought the site was going down for a while?

    Great finale, a little disappointing you didn’t try to make it 3 different parts but I think that would of been the end of you. You should of shown the 3 end bosses still, one that was a giant GF and the part were you were dressed as Squall was completely awesome and I think you enjoyed doing that. I’m calling foul from you though because you said whoever listened to the “Eyes on me song” was a pussy, although you couldn’t avoid the song if you wanted to read the story and see the ending sequence but you did the same thing with you’re review ending seeing that you put some effort into it so made us all listen to the song to watch the whole thing.

  • Isaacian27

    Eh, I enjoyed “Eyes on Me”, probably because I liked the whole Laguna and Julia love story, which is far better than the Squall and Riona BS love story. In fact they should have just focused on Laguna, because he, unlike Squall, has a likable personality. Sure he isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed, but at least he isn’t the brooding, whiny sap that Squall is. Overall, I didn’t like FFVIII all that much. The soundtrack is great, one of the best in the series, but outside that, there isn’t that much merit to the game. The plot is just stupid and full of BS, the character’s are not likable at all, and the gameplay is tedious, abstract, and broken.

    Great review although sitting through it and not getting mad at some points was rather hard for one thing your prejudice for people who had a different opinion than you and different personal preferences for music got really old.

    Also the bit at the end “It didn’t start getting really bad until Final Fantasy X” uhhh? ok thanks for the opinion I guess I’ll just push that to the back of my mind and remind myself that that’s all it is a close minded unfounded opinion which I have no use for whatsoever.
    I guess I just have to remember what that guy from Silent Hill 3 says “It’s just a joke”

    And after all the **** about cosplayers in the review of Final Fantasy 7 (Which by the way wasn’t actually started by Final Fantasy 7 as you claimed ever been to a Star Trek convention?) and then you come bursting into the room with that Squall outfit on was the very definition of hypocrisy but “It’s just a joke”
    And if you hate Final Fantasy 8 so much why do you have figures of the main cast? “It’s just a joke”

    Yeah great review but if I need your opinion on Final Fantasy X in the future I’ll give it to you thank you very much :D

    Also the bit at the end “It didn’t start getting really bad until Final Fantasy X” uhhh? ok thanks for the opinion I guess I’ll just push that to the back of my mind and remind myself that that’s all it is a close minded unfounded opinion which I have no use for whatsoever.
    I guess I just have to remember what that guy from Silent Hill 3 says “It’s just a joke”

    And after all the **** about cosplayers in the review of Final Fantasy 7 (Which by the way wasn’t actually started by Final Fantasy 7 as you claimed ever been to a Star Trek convention?) and then you come bursting into the room with that Squall outfit on was the very definition of hypocrisy but “It’s just a joke”
    And if you hate Final Fantasy 8 so much why do you have figures of the main cast? “It’s just a joke”

    Yeah great review but if I need your opinion on Final Fantasy X in the future I’ll give it to you thank you very much :D

    “It’s just a joke”

    Ok I usually just keep quiet and just watch your review, so now I’m going to make a review of your… review!

    Thanks for bringing me this, I always wanted to know what Final Fantasy 8 was all about. I just couldn’t play it, it haunted my childhood too, lucky for me that I gave up.
    When I brought this game I thought it was going to be the best game EVER! I played FF7 and that was one of my favorite games of all time, and this had updated graphics and was the sequel (and at that age I thought ALL sequels were better than the previous) But the battle system just threw me off, all with drawing magic, summons that are soo easy to get, have so much cinematic and still isn’t stronger than a fucking Ice 2 or something in FF7! Also the plot made no sense to me, I was kinda young, but I played trough FF7 and FF6 and they made perfect sense to me! And also it was too much running around, there was no strait line in some cases. So somewhere along the first disc I just said ”Fuck it” and I gave up. So that’s my experience with FF8.
    But later on, I always wondered what happened in this game, I played trough nearly all else (5,6 7, 9, 10 and working on 12) So its only natural to wonder.

    So again, thanks for bringing these reviews of Final Fantasy 8 that was funny, entertaining and good info!
    It feels like we share the same feeling about Final Fantasy 8, so I can’t complain about the thing you brought up really. Anyway the whole review you did was amazing, you can see that you used alot of time into this and the spin offs with Insano and all else its just amazing! And now I really got to know what FF8 was all about, and I still think, its sucks from this point of view, I would give the game a chance if the battle system wasn’t *!@=†§ up.
    Another thing, what got you to wear the Squall costume if you hate him so much? That would have burned in my skin!
    Anyways, its been a great time watching the reviews of Final Fantasy 8, it feels like its been forever and now its finally comes to an end, and I really hope you will make another very long review that includes all the details and your personal opinions about it, as well as spin offs of course.
    A request would be Final Fantasy 12 as for now its re-e-e-e-e-elly boring to play that now, its seems like I’m giving up soon.

    Oh man, Spoony, that was brilliant. Final Fantasy VIII got what it deserved. I’m sorry, I can’t believe that the plot could disintegrate into such absolute STUPIDITY! It went from really confusing and quite stupid to jaw-droppingly unbelievable.

    And I’m not trying to defend the Final Fantasy franchise here, but I borrowed FFX from a friend and played through at least half, and, well…. I thought it was a pretty good game. I really hate the real-time turn-based fighting in Final Fantasy so the purely turn-based strategy was good imo… however, the plot still made no f**king sense!!!

    I laughed, I cried, I lost my man cards. Now to watch this again at least two or three times with friends!

    Thanks for all the entertainment, I know a lot of people crit the frequency of these reviews but waiting is part of the fun. It’s like a miniature Christmas for every review – waiting for the event, the build-up, the event itself, the aftermath and resultant nuclear fallout, etc. Unlike Christmas, however, Spoony delivers on expectations (and Christmas will never be the same since Warrior had his way with Santa). Here’s hoping Linkara can bring back the Spoony One with the right number of heads and appendages so that he can have a few harsh words with Insano. LONG LIVE THE EXPERIMENT!

    One thing occurred to me. Insano said you still live with your parents and after that you blew the house up. Did you just sacrifice them to take out Squall? Man, that’s kind of desperate, don’t you think? :P

    The hell is an “anti fanboy”, new term coined just now to express fanboys who’s electrons and protons have been meticulously replaced by positrons and antiprotons, and if the two were to collide it would send a blast of photonic gamma radiation?

  • Digi-Fox

    Definitely a fitting ending to an epic review, and I certainly don’t blame you for packing two and a half discs into 1 review as you hate the game that much.

    Almost kind of sad to see it all come to an end as I like many others became fans of your work through your FF8 reviews. It will be nice to see what epic crapsterpiece you tackle next, Final Fantasy X? Final Fantasy X-2? Grandia 3?

    On a personal level I feel like it’s almost the end of an era too, as FF8 came out ten years ago and here we are 10 years later.

  • Poki#3

    Well you held to your word. It was epic.

    I knew you’d flip out over NORG. Too bad you didn’t have Odin before you battled Seifer is Lunatic Pandora. Odin, the guy that can kill anything in 1 Hit, would get killed by Seifer, the guy that you defeated a million times.

    In other news I really think this should be longer and split into 2 parts. Some thing really deserved more focus, such as the Galbadia – Balamb Battle (They also have zipline commandos :D) and the Final Battle itself. A coment on Omega Weapon maybe? :P And we didn’t get to hear you talk about the ending much in the end…

    …but I have to say YOUR ending was freaking EPIC. When Squal came into the picture I completely lost it XD. This if your best Movie/Editing moment hands down! (Too bad you’re dead so you can’t read this…)

    Personally I liked 8. It’s not in the top of my FF games list, but it’s way better then 12 <.<
    I really think you enjoyed the game a bit more then you decided to show on camera. If you poke fun at everything, and try to explain every little thing and you can make fun of anything. It's was really entertaining nevertheless ;]

    Good luck with the whole "being dead" thing ^^

    Now FF9 i played a lot longer and enjoyed it more, but like FF8 it started to get fucking weird at Disk 3 like this piece of shit game.

    EPIC ^^!

    I didn’t play the game (THANK GOD, JESUS, ALAH, WHO EVER IS UP THERE!) so i don’t know how much was explained but the “destroying time” was really lame… At least if they were so sure that’s what they were going for, they should have made up some reason… You know what here’s a reason what “kinda” (that’s Final Fantasy kinda) makes sense:

    She wanted to destroy time so nothing is left but god and she (who some how shielded her self) and then she can defeat god and become the new god.

    There! makes sense? No, but if you would wanted it to make sense you shouldn’t have asked about FF. If the title contains the word “fantasy” its more or less a commitment that “we made up a story but the stupid laws of physics didn’t like it”.

    On other side: The ship that “happened to be there just in the good secound” was called “Ragnarok”? Thats just a new level of coincidence… A level where on one dared to go before i must add, since “Ragnarok” is the End of the World or Final Battle in Norse mythology.

    But anyways: Awesome review, i look forward to the big return.

    There’s still one question that remains… What has become of Bruton? Or i could say: What if the little white plasm that contains the SpoonyOne’s DNA is actually belongs to Squall?

    An incredible way to end your review series. Some have said it before but I came on board your site when I saw the first review for FF8. I thought to myself, “Who’s this know-it-all making fun of FF8?” one of my favorite games of the series?

    I’ve now seen the light. I will never be able to play that game ever again without thinking of you. Thanks for that.

    I’d like to comment on how much your style has improved since I began watching it. I have to admit, I didn’t think highly of your review style at first since it looked so amateurish and the sound quality was TERRIBLE. I could barely hear what you were saying and almost passed you off to go find something else. However, I stuck with it and was greatly pleased when your later videos were much more polished and easier to follow. It’s safe to say that you are now one of my favorite reviewers/entertainers on the Internet. You’ve come a long way and it shows. I hope, despite the problems with your equipment, that you continue to improve and evolve. Talent like yours is something that shouldn’t be wasted.

    I think you deserve a big pat on the back for finishing FF8. I will be there for whatever else you’ve got planned down the line. See ya.

  • Aggs

    You’re a credit to your genre. I always thought it strange that I did not remember this game despite having beat it. I figured people were being dramatic when they say they block stuff out, but all of my confused and exasperated memories came back during your reviews. I was forced to acknowledge that there is a part of my life I can’t get back and FF6&9 look even better than I remember by comparison.

    Thank you for providing us with entertainment. If nothing else, it was a Hell of a ride.

  • YourFriendlyNeighborhoodSpoony

    Loved the review even though plot points were a little mixed. But you missed one crucially balls moment. When the characters travel with Edea to Eshtar, and have another Laguna flash back. Where in Laguna and his friend are locked away as slaves, with the Moomba, and all their weapons and equipment. They then travel the city to find that Odine is doing creepy sorceress experiments on Ellone, and yet in the future he still trusts Odine, and he still fails to kill Adel in the first place. Also what about when Squall walks the train track with a comatose Rinoa, just to meet the rest of his party who drove.

    And @FinalFantasyFan, if one line about FFX makes you that angry, you really need to re examine your priorities.

  • Red Silvers

    You know, FinalFantasyFan, he OPENED this whole review saying “They really start getting bad until Final Fantasy X”. It was in Part 1. So, you wasted your time on all the parts of this review only to let the text version at the very end piss you off. If you really gave a rats ass, you’d have been pissed off from the first minute of Part 1. But thats okay, we all know you’re just a troll, as I have proven, WITH SCIENCE!

    Spoony, I have to say I’m mixed on this one. It was awesome, and it was epic, but I do wish you hadn’t compressed so much of the game into one review. I think there were certain parts that could have had a little more ranting done, like the whole “We grew up together” segment. Even so, this was incredibly well done, certainly your claim “Something big is coming” did not disappoint. If I could, I would buy you a drink.

    I’m curious to see how either you or Linkara follows this up…

It feels more personal and sincere that way.

    I know you had a lot of trouble with the camera/mic and the site stuff, but DAMN! You really seemed to have put a lot of effort in this review and it was really great. It must have been pretty embarrasing and traumatising for you to dress up as Squall, wasn’t it?
    Anyway thanks for the awesome reviews and you deserve all the donations you get.

    Can’t wait to see how the resurrected Spoony will turn out.
    Good luck!

    Awesome. In fact, I think I’ll watch it again.

    I honestly don’t think FFX was THAT bad, especially compared to FFVIII. It certainly wasn’t great, but if they were to rerelease the game with completely redone voice acting, it may actually have been quite enjoyable.

    I’m still looking forward to the potential for you to rip it apart, seeing as I’m not a gimpy little bitch who cries when something I like is insulted.

    The Laguna thing was never explained but Ellone brought them together because Laguna is Squall’s father.

    Laguna was away in Esthar and Squall’s mother was alone giving birth to a baby Laguna never knew about.
    Squall’s mother (Ellone’s adoptive mother) said she wished Squall could meet his father so Ellone at like age 5 or something casts her little time unity spell to turn Squall into Laguna etc so she could tell the dying Raine woman or whatever that she made the two of them meet before she copped it.

    This is why Squall always calls Ellone ‘Sis’ yet can’t remember her. She was his sister.

    but anyways, THIS WAS NEVER FUCKING EXPLAINED! WHAT THE FUCK?

  • The UnFuckingBelievable Guy

    FinalFantasyFan is a massive hypocrite and a terrible pussy. This is scientific fact.

    First of all there’s his huge overreaction to one line at the very end of a review; going so far as to remove the site from his favourites for a throwaway comment (and even one that had been repeated several times throughout the site and on the very first video of the fucking review). Then there is his rage at people daring to have their own opinion, calling them ‘close-minded’ for not agreeing with the exact same things he does. Please. I like FFX, and even I can see why people would hate the unintentionally hilarious drama and overly complex levelling system.

    But the most heinous thing of all is that his reaction is essentially He Panned It, Now He Sucks. This refers to the fanboy phenomenon of chuckling along with a beloved critic mercilessly ripping into things, and then suddenly turning on the critic like a rabid terrier if he dares to criticise something the fanboy likes. This is the behaviour of someone who has his head rammed so far up his ass he can lick his own throat.

    I know I’m ranting, but I need to express my rage at this act of incomparable whining, especially when the target is a review as funny as this one.

    Absolutely brilliant. The best review ever. You versus your squall-self was one of the highlights (especially the gunblade part) as well as that rinoa porn part.

    And yes, I love the song Eyes on Me. My man cards have been long gone before that.

    Im disappointed to see this end. I would have rather seen you rip it apart piece by piece, but this kind of epic conclusion justifies the quick finish.

  • johnnyfog

    Being a sucker for time travel plots, I think I’ve stuck with FF all his time because of all the goofy sci-fi plot twists thrown into some of the classic games in the series. FF1 was especially cool considering that the plot was almost non-existent for most of the game, and suddenly it hammers you with realizations like “ooh, Garland didn’t die!” and “the Temple of Fiends is intact and MASSIVE in the past.” FFV is also one of my faves due to the parallel worlds, and even though the plot is arguably pretty weak, you have to admit it took a cool concept from Dragon Warrior III (later perfected in FFVI and re-used in chrono cross) and did some original things with it. Even FFX had an interesting time travel premise at the start, even though it was later replaced by “wait….did Zanarkand ever exist or was it all in his head?”.

    But for some reason, FfVIII doesn’t move me at all. It’s pretty obvious the time compression thing was stuck on at the last minute by square, and Ultemecia randomly swoops in and steals Edea’s thunder despite being a vastly inferior adversary. I can forgive the lack of motive for her desire to stop time (nobody complains about classic rpgs where the villain’s scheme is counter-productive), but Edea was a much more interesting character, having once raised all the mains while posing as the head of the orphanage. At the time, the x-men animated series was still fresh in people’s mind so my friends compared her relationship to the mains to Mr Sinister and Cyclops. If the developers wanted to shelve Edea, they should have replaced her with someone worthwhile, like a future version of Rinoa who turned evil (which would have been a good reveal if it had turned out to be Ultemecia. In fact, it would’ve lifted this game to greatness).

    Most FF games are worth playing, because even if the setup is crappy, the story is usually original and doesn’t go where you expect. But FFVIII doesn’t have much payoff, so I wouldn’t recommend bothering with it.

I can forgive the lack of motive for her desire to stop time (nobody complains about classic rpgs where the villain’s scheme is counter-productive), but Edea was a much more interesting character, having once raised all the mains while posing as the head of the orphanage. At the time, the x-men animated series was still fresh in people’s mind so my friends compared her relationship to the mains to Mr Sinister and Cyclops. If the developers wanted to shelve Edea, they should have replaced her with someone worthwhile, like a future version of Rinoa who turned evil (which would have been a good reveal if it had turned out to be Ultemecia. In fact, it would’ve lifted this game to greatness).

    Most FF games are worth playing, because even if the setup is crappy, the story is usually original and doesn’t go where you expect. But FFVIII doesn’t have much payoff, so I wouldn’t recommend bothering with it.

    Fantastic review Spoony.
    The games flaws are numerous, but I still enjoyed playing it.

    The sad part about it is that I’ve never played the game, but I own both FF X and X-2. Please forgive me for being a pussy with two games that I gave up on long ago for being hard pieces of crap they are.

    So…yeah not sure what’s gonna come up next but I hope it’s as great as this. Great video, Noah.

    Spoony-Squall was REALLY disturbing, but watching him get blown up Search for Spock style was bad ass. I loved that movie too. Odd numbered Trek movies suck except for that one.

    I loved the squall moment (although spoony missed a perfectly good opportunity to use a Emo Git joke), and the entire review not only had top quality editing for a internet low budget game review, but was as always hilarious. I’m actually kinda glad we’ve ended the era of the Final Fantasy VIII review, it’ll let spoony move on to new stuff without people bothering him about when he’s going to finish the review. All in all, a great review, but topping this is going to be next to impossible.

    Well that was worth the wait great job but on all the comments eluding to FFX.

    Come on guy we know its kinda dumb except for the one saving grace that is Auron.
    Mind you I kinda like it, basically for Auron, but Tidus there serves to piss everyone off. You think he would be less angsty given he was a sports star of some sort. Even Jecht is more fun than him, but then again being a pooka I have an affinity for rum pots. And even Riku is more entertaining than Yuna.

    I really hope that, after being reanimated, Spoony does not go after FFX basically because I think it would kill him again and Linkara may get tired of the reanimation process. Let him unwind with some classic FFVI at least for a while.

    *sorry I have trouble understanding the difference between the fiction and the reality*

    Also is a gunblade a boomstick or a boomknife?

    Nifty! What a great way to end the review! You covered everything that’s horrible about the game and you didn’t even spoil the ending. :)

    Interestingly enough, Gamespot’s FFVIII review was written by Andrew Vestal, who was a great friend of mine a few years back. I knew him for more than a year before I realized HE was the one who wrote the review. I had trouble not strangling him after that.

Way worse than FFX. I actually enjoyed playing that game…although all the characters except Auron were hella lame.

    Entertaining, but I’m glad you’re moving onto other things – even though I could watch you vent your rage over FF8 for days, it’s got to put a damper on your creativity.

    We will always remember your brave sacrifice of your dignity for our amusement. (I really hope you burned that costume after wearing it.)

    Also, great way to set up moving house. Though you didn’t have to go and nuke the whole town.

    Great review! You explained points in a way that I understood, being the FF8 newbie that I am. Never played it but I don’t think I will ever in any case. Extemely funny too, but I didn’t listen to Eyes On Me, I’m keeping my Man-card! :p

    As for FFX, I’ll be interested in hearing your points on that as that was my first RPG but I’ll look forward to you tearing it to shreds. I didn’t think the Sphere system is anywhere near as bad as the whole magic-gathering nonsense in 8 but on the voice-acting the actors have certainly moved onto significantly better roles since FFX.

    Keeping rocking Spoony!

    Excellent work Spoony. Couldn’t have had a better conclusion. I’m sort of glad that this series is finally finished though, because I wanna see your Ripper Let’s Play.

    I’d also like to find out your reasons for despising FFX though. It’s the only FF I’ve played from beginning to end, and I thought it was really good. Don’t torment yourself too much farther though, a 1-parter would be just fine.

    I’m sad to see this end. I had always hoped you this would become the Slacktivist/Left Behind of videogamedom, that you would dissect the game in exquisite and humorous detail. Because we all know that FF8 is a never ending font of this kind of stuff. And that definitely happened, but I was disappointed to see that this piece would wrap it all up.

    But this final installment was fantastic. I laughed. I cried. I enjoyed it immensely. I generally don’t like the character bits, but when you presented yourself in Squall cosplay I nearly fell out of my chair and didn’t stop laughing until the entire Star Trek III tribute was complete.

    They say you know it’s great entertainment when you feel fulfilled by the ending, but still sad that it’s over. That’s what I feel in a nutshell.

  • Deady

    I knew it! Dr. Insano is inspired by Dr.Cox! Hey he has a stethoscope and MAN Cards..what else do you want?! Also a really great Review and worth waiting the time. Hope stuff now comes more regularly as (most) issues seem to be solved.

    Ive been a fan for a very long time spoony, and this is my first written comment.

    The epic review of this game that I have been watching and waiting for for about 8 months has finally come to an end, and I would like to thank you for entertaining me.

    Great finish.

    *Reads Final Fantasy Fan’s comment.*

    *Thinks (Dear God this guy is an obvious troll)*

    *Sees other players responding to the comment.*

    *Then says, “Oh, WTF. Let’s rock.*

    “*Watches review through to the end and thoroughly enjoys it”

    Keep this in mind for later.

    “*See’s the line “They didn’t even start getting really bad until Final Fantasy X” with no proof whatsoever to back it up.”

    To begin with, that was the exact line that Spoony began his review of FF8 with, so it was more of a film-making choice than anything. And it’s a little hard to prove an opinion. You can prove that an opinion is justified, but there’s always going to be people to disagree with you, especially when it comes to video games.

    The fact that FFF didn’t even watch the full series of videos, OR see Spoony’s recent blog where he slightly attacks FFX, tells me that this guy wasn’t as big a fan as he pretends to be. In addition, it makes one think that he just came across this video, and not any of the others. That is more the behavior of a troll than a person being genuine.

    “*Rolls eyes
    *Exits out of site
    *Removes site from favorites”

    Another sign that he’s a troll- nobody would actually remove any site from their favorites due to a single sentence. They might criticize it, but nobody would go that far. So all you’re doing is making up an extreme reaction in order to get attention.

    “*Watches Uwe Bolle movie (Anything is better than the soon to be coming “Final Fantasy X review” a.k.a. “Spoonies next mindless fanboy rant”)”

    1. It was a single sentence. How can somebody be sure that a video is coming from that?

    2. You don’t have to worry about that, since you took the site off your favorites, rigfht? :P

    “*Plays Final Fantasy X just to remember the wonderful storyline, great graphics, return to and actual fantasy setting, wonderful characters, and incredible music. Just to spite all anti Final Fantasy X fanboys who are completely and utterly close minded and don’t deserve my attention in any way whatsoever.”

    Where to begin?

    “Plays Final Fantasy X”

    Big mistake.

    “Just to remember the wonderful storyline”

    Wrong. To begin with, 98% of the game doesn’t even revolve around the main character’s storyline. This just makes the whole thing utterly confusing when the two finally meet together. I won’t spoil, so I’ll just say that approximately 30% of the story is interesting, which is overthrown by the 70% of filler, and 80% of the game where they just run around, and don’t actually ask any questions about what’s going on. It’s a long ride for a weak payoff.

    “Great graphics”

    Fair enough, but graphics= the least important piece of a game. Why did you even mention this? It makes you look utterly superficial.

    “return to and actual fantasy setting,”

    I’m not sure what that even MEANS.

    “wonderful characters”

    Wow. My suspension of belief just snapped. The FFX characters are mostly annoying, childish, and brooding. There is no character development throughout, so if you disliked almost everyone, as I did, you’re going to find the game pretty insufferable.

    ” Just to spite all anti Final Fantasy X fanboys who are completely and utterly close minded and don’t deserve my attention in any way whatsoever.”

    In general, this sentence just FEELS fake.

    But again, let’s break it down.

    “Just to spite all anti-Final Fantasy X fanboys who are completely and utterly close-minded”

    To begin with, this statement itself is utterly close-minded, since you are making generalities about an extremely diverse group. In addition, stating that Spoony’s FFX review is just going to be a “fanboy rant” is pretty closed-minded.

    “and don’t deserve my attention in any way whatsoever.””

    Closed-minded statement #3.

    “*Tries to see things from an anti Final Fantasy X fanboy’s point of view
    *Fails since I can’t stick my head that far up my ass”

    Close-minded statement #4. Also, nice ad-hom.

    “Spoony Ugh whenever I need to ruin my day I can just come on here and try watching one of his reviews (Or reading them) ¬_¬”

    Close-minded statement #5. Also, compare this sentence to these-

    “*Watches review through to the end and thoroughly enjoys it”

    “*Rolls eyes
    *Exits out of site
    *Removes site from favorites”

    OBVIOUS TROLL IS OBVIOUS.

    Though I’m sad to see to see the FF8 series come to an end, this was one of the best videos of them all.

    Also, I’m a little scared just how much I enjoyed Spoony as Squall…

  • Machiavel

    Am I the only one who had the brilliant idea of muting my sound when the end credits rolled by? Mancard still safe. Booyah!

    This was an awesome video you put together there. I’ll admit I wish you continued to review the plot more in detail, as you’ve been doing since the beginning, so we could get your comments on every last stupid feature of the game (ever found out what that ufo thing was?), but I can understand that you wanted to get that awful game done and over with as soon as possible. Go, you spoony bard, you, and bring justice to the world.

    Also, for someone who hates cosplayers, you sure went out of your way to get yourself an accurate Squall costume. Is this the beginning of the cosplaying Spoony era? Also I wonder how the Linkara sub-plot will come into play in your furute videos. I’m looking forward to see what you come up with next, both on your end and on Linkara’s.

    On a side-note. You love Doom Train, do you? Enough to start singing random songs about trains when you ride on it, do you? Did you know it’s actually the same train that Sabin Rene Figaro suplexed to death like a bitch back in your other article? Yeesssss it is. Sabin he’s the man!

    Go Spoony bros. Behind you all the way.

    Still, the Phantasmagoria playthrough mostly sucked because the game itself sucked but Final Fantasy VIII is one of the best games I ever played and this review is not one of the best but the best review I have ever seen for any game, including all the AVGN and Irate Gamer stuff as well as serious reviews.
    By the way, I still have my man card, even though it’s … pink …

    “Hellooo, I’m the GF critic. I remember it, because you won’t be able to. Because you summon too many GFs.”

    Epic ending to a great series of reviews – I didn’t hate FF8 that much, but some aspects well and truly sucked ass. I like the camera work, the split screen and cutaways really add much; it’s clear that this was quite an investment in time and labor, and it shows! It’s kinda sad that this whole chapter is now over, but at least it got a great send-off… good job!

    (And I had half expected the Spoony One to have cast LIFE-3 in preparation.)

    (And I sincerely hope Linkara saved a snippet of torn clothing, too. Don’t want to see a naked Spoony rising from a bath of dripping goo.)

  • RobberBaron

    That was epic, Spoony. IMO, probably your best recording to date.

    Although I too wish Spoony would’ve spread it out over a few more videos, I got the impression he felt it was like a giant anchor around his neck, so I understand why he chose to finish it with a bang.

    I’m looking forward to seeing how Linkara brings Spoony back from the dead. I also suspect a FFX review will probably come eventually, but it won’t be a huge series like FFVIII. It’ll probably just be a one-shot deal. Spoony probably wouldn’t want to put himself through that again. :)

    I’m sorry, but after seeing all of your other FF8 reviews (since the very beginning I might add), I am very dissapointed in this one. You basically took 2 and a half discs and compressed it all into a single 30 minute review. All your other parts spent 30 minutes in just ONE part of the game. Not only that, but you skipped around a little in this one, with different parts of the game, which seemed quite unorganized. You wern’t kidding when you said that you were rushing this one, because that is exactly how it felt, rushed. Quite dissapointing, I was really looking foward to the next installment. Unless the whole bit at the end was a way of telling us the review isn’t over, and what you left the video on before you click to watch it was a hint as well. I really hope this is true, because this would be a pretty terrible way to go out, seeing how awesome all the other parts of your review were. I really, REALLY hope this isn’t the end, and was a joke like “time loop” was.

    I remember when I played this game as a kid I got the garden flying at an earlier point in the game, I think too early. At around the point when I was supposed to go to the train maybe? cant remember anymore. Well, I stopped playing the game because I couldn’t figure out how to land the garden. I was stuck in the top down view, flying around with the garden all over the map not being able to land it anywhere. That was so weird.

  • Linkyoo

    i’ve read all the 314 comment, they all say something like : ” you should review FFX ” … or great review.
    I have to agree, Yeah, it’s an excellent way to finish the review, and I’m a total pussy for liking the song at the end. Please continues to do such great vidoes, or not because so much great video like these would spoiled us.

    You know, after watching this review, it made me realize how much I actually liked FF8. I mean it’s been years since I played it and I didn’t really remember much plot farther than half of disc 2, but I remember having lots of fun playing through the game. I was surprised with seeing you in a squall outfit, hell, you even had final fantasy viii figurines. You obviously at one point must have really liked the game (maybe you still actually do, I don’t know.)

    But when you say it really didn’t get bad until FFX… I completely agree with you. COMPLETELY. God, that game is a horror story. If anyone thought FF8’s story was a complicated cluster fuck, they need only look at FFX to see just how much worse FF8’s story could have been: SPOILER ALERT (Tidus: Oh no, my dad’s somehow turned into a gigantic ball of aquatic shit that rises out of the ocean to destroy entire cities and can suck people up into his ass to transport them across time and space to a place where the world of the living is run by the dead! 0_0 WTFBBQ) I never got that far into FFXII because the boring characters and ridiculously boring battle system just turned me off from playing through it.

    My favorite one was FF9, and I really hope that XIII is a return to other final fantasys where the characters have more development and importance in the plot and that the battle system doesn’t suck ass.

    Anyway, epic as always Spoony. Hope Linkara revives you soon :)

    WOOO! That was great. Though I can understand those who were disappointed, that game was clearly torture for you and I got the idea you really wanted to finish it now. But you did so in the best way possible. Looking forward to the aftermath of you exploding and stuff. :p

    Ahahaha…Wow that was an ending I felt satisfied with. Is it a prelude to a X review? I actually thought that was a good game so I’d like to see what can be thrown at it. As for the ending I think you made a little error, the woman in the yellow wasn’t Julia, it was Raine (it’s probably already been said). But it’s not like that ruined it for me or anything.

    So…Spoony, are you going to be conducting new reviews as a piece of, what looks like, a gum eraser? Maybe you should do your next vlog like that hahah!

    Noooo! FF8 has died! (raises arms and cries) Spoonyyyy!

    Well, when you said that the next review would be difficult to make from an emotional point of view, I’d have never imagined this. You really went out of your way to make this epic. And, just as you expected, FF8 has finished you, literally. Seriously, did you have this ending planned as the series went on, or did you come up with alll this just after the April Fool special? When you come back to life, I think I’d love to see a “Making of” kind of video on this one. Even if it’s just you talking about the experience, I’d love to watch it.

    By the way, I DO like Eyes On Me, but that’s only because the first time I heard it wasn’t in the game. A friend gave me a FF Music CD, and it was in it. However, when I finally heard it in the game, my reaction was exactly the same as yours: “Could they have put the song in a more inappropriate moment?”.

    Crying moments of FF history: Opera scene from FF6, death of Aeris from FF7, death of Spoony from FF8 reviews.

However, when I finally heard it in the game, my reaction was exactly the same as yours: “Could they have put the song in a more inappropriate moment?”.

    Noooo! FF8 has died! (raises arms and cries) Spoonyyyy!

    Well, when you said that the next review would be difficult to make from an emotional point of view, I’d have never imagined this. You really went out of your way to make this epic. And, just as you expected, FF8 has finished you, literally. Seriously, did you have this ending planned as the series went on, or did you come up with alll this just after the April Fool special?

Found out about you about a year and a half ago, and have had the honor of sitting through some of the most creative, purely insane vids. Can’t wait to see what you’re gonna do next, though I’m still kinda hoping you’ll do more for The Ripper. Blessings upon you O Spoony one.

    Just so everyone knows: if Linkara sells his soul to Mephisto to revive Spoony?

    I FUCKING CALLED IT!

    Now, I actually liked this game, but I never got to the time travel part, what with the disc breaking halfway through. I also liked Final Fantasy X, even though there was the stupidity and all.

    But I liked them in a fashion that allows me to know: they’re not really excellent games. A really excellent game has the player actively contribute through the plot, not just going through the motions. See, say, La-Mulana, or Cave Story, or Planescape Torment (which is the best RPG ever). The Chrono series is a better JRPG, again, because you can affect the plot.

    Also, I enjoyed FFVIII and FFX because they allowed my in-born munchkinosity to shine through. FFVIII was my first experience with powergaming, so it has a small space in my heart.

    Brilliant just brilliant Spoony.I hope you continue your Final Fantasy Reviews with next installments such as FFX and FFXII since you’re just too good at pointing out the inconsistencies and the blatant drawbacks this series has.Concerning FFVIII I wished it would have gone on longer but considering the difficulties you’re currently facing it’s completely understandable that you would want to wrap it up so to speak.That said the original work you’re doing is really entertaining it seems you just have what it takes, you’re a true spark of individuality among a massive pool of mediocrity.Sounds like sucking up but the fact that I have taken a good look at the competition I consider it to be true.So please continue doing what you do best ^^

    Great review, but one can only expect this from the good Spoonyone.
    By the by, what is it that you mean nothing will ever be the same again? I know this is the big review we were all waiting for, but what will change? Moving in with Linkara? Moving to a new house? Reviews of new games? By the way, don’t tell me I will lose my manliness if I listen to a certain piece of music and then make me sit through that particular piece of music through the credits ever again! I need to go do something manly now.

    So it finally ends. I really have to admit, FFVIII was one of my favorite of the series, I actually put it above most of the others saying it was better. Some how I managed to miss all the gaping holes in the plot…which further confirms my theory that as a kid i was pretty freaking stupid.

    Thank you Spoony, thank you for teaching me how to hate this game more than I already hate FFVII.

    P.S.: I hated “Eyes On Me.” but I did sit through it. Twice now, thanks to you!

    Wow…didn’t expect this series to finish up so fast. I was honestly expecting more nitpicking and shit.

    Anyway, I stumbled upon these series of videos a few months back through That Guy With the Glasses. I honestly never expected to laugh my guts out in some parts. I’m kind of sad that this is over.

    Man…I honestly can’t believe I enjoyed this game so much back then, especially the storyline. After watching you making fun of it and pointing out various absurd twists, I was simply left surprised. Good for you for making it through the game and bringing us along for the ride.

    Excellent work overall, man. Very entertaining. Even though your first videos weren’t the best quality, I think that they had some of the best material. That first video almost killed me with your own dub on the cinematic cutscene, naming certain characters and GFs (Emo Git…LOL), and making fun of the Gunblade. I also love how you make fun of Rinoa’s attacks…can’t believe she used her dog that way and I never actually thought to myself how absurd that is. Making fun of Zell always got me…particularly that “Mentos commercial” FMV. My personal highlight though…was when you used that Magic Lamp and Diablo kicks your ass. That was just priceless. I can watch this scene over and over and laugh like crazy.

    While the quality of the jokes in later videos didn’t match up to your first ones, the actual quality of production and recording.was way, way better. You cleaned up pretty well.

    Now about this finale, I kind of think that you rushed through it. Liked what you did with certain parts (LOL @ Eyes on Me rant) but wished that you divided the material into two or three videos instead of powering through it like that. But all in all, I’m glad you had the time to finish up this series of yours.

    The more I watch this series…the more I can’t believe that I played through the game and liked it. Man, just when I thought of getting back to playing it for pure nostalgia…

    Sadly… the review have come to an end. it was a great ending however. i was kinda hoping for a full game bit by bit walkthough like the phantasmagoria reviews. and it was a bit unhearting to see it end so suddenly. but none the less this was what this needed. was a very epic ending that i was quite happy with and to watch. i hope to see some more review in the future!!!

    great job spooney I love every single minute. I almost cried during the credits with “eyes on me” playing. I love final fantasy VIII for life. You did forget to mention GF “bahamut” or “alexander” or even the GF Ultimecia used “Griver” which based off Squall’s pendent. I love the Squall Cosplay and action figures of final fantasy VIII

    Seifer did beat Odin in one hit but then came Gilgamesh to take his place. 7-10 and 12 were great when i get a chance I need to play 4-6 and tactics(ps1 version) we need a review on FFIX or FFX or FFXII

    Since I like “Eyes on Me,” I guess I have to turn in my man cards now :(. That and I actually sang that song in a karaoke box while I was in Japan. Congrats on completing a great video series!

    FFFUUUUUU————- I laughed so hard when Spoony dressed as Squall. OH God that was hilarious. I love you Noah.

    v__v and really?…really. God you just had to put Eyes on Me for the credits. You evil bastard. Okay granted, I can deal with it…but still….ewww…

    8D Over all great review. Don’t care if it wasn’t nitpicky- this game absolutely tortured you and as much as I seeing you pained (wait—what?) I think FFVIII was a little too much.

    Well, I really enjoyed that. These reviews were what introduced me to your site, so seeing it end is kinda bitersweet. It was awesome, but I already sorta miss it.

    I would have liked to see your comments on the actual end of the game, but seeing you in the Squall outfit was even better.

    I do, however, have to claim immunity from the pussy label you attached to people who like that song, on the basis that I had only ever heard the awesome Orchestral version from the Final Fantasy Concert Tour, nor heard the lyrics.

    Anyway, I look forward to your next project, and thanks for suffering for us.

    Great. Now all Spoony has to do is review Final Fantasy X.

    Then again, no one would be heartless enough to force him to play that absolutely fucking awful so-called “game”.

    Final Fantasy 8 was most definately a peice of shit. And I thought the same thing when I played it YEARS ago, and felt stupid for it. But Spoony’s epic review of it, after all this time was fun, simply because Final Fantasy 8 is mockably fun for it’s stupidity.

    But Final Fantasy X was the game that killed Final Fantasy, and every bit of credibility the series ever had. Startig with X, the franchise was dead. FF8 sounded the death knoll, Final Fantasy X killed the series forever, and X-2 pissed on the ashes of the franchise and raped it’s corpse. And the series has been utter shit ever since.

    If Spoony had to review FFX for more than 2 minutes, I could see him shooting himself in the head. And FFX is so absolutely godawful beyond the point of any reasonable point of mentioning, with it’s locked off, stupendously linear pigshit on narrow paths with basically zero gameplay anywhere in it, with the worst characters that the franchise ever belched up, and the most unwatchablly painful acting, no character development, and retardedly inane story, that honestly…. FFX is SO BAD OF A GAME that not even Spoony’s sarcasm could carry him or anyone watching through it’s unbelievable, painful wretchedness. FFX is unreviewably bad, and nothing could get anyone through it without wanting to puke.

    FFX was the single game that killed me off of ever liking the FF franchise ever again. I watched someone play 3 minutes of FFX-2 and I felt like I needed to take a shower, it made me feel dirty just for being in the same room of it.

    I never so much as picked up another FF game since FFX,… until I begrudgingly picked up FF12, years later, to give the franchise another chance… and it was also unplayable, shitworthy garbage.

    And FF13 is going to suck, too. Yes, it is.

    Not only does all of the screens and news of it scream to be the same bullshit from FF8, FFX, X-2, 11, and 12, which were all fucking awful. It’s hyped to the moon, but Final Fantasy has been dead, and has had it’s corpse raped ever since FF8 sounded the death knoll, FF9 gave us false hope, and FFX stabbed the franchise in the back and X-2 pissed on it’s dead rotting carcass.

    Final Fantasy sucks now, and it’s been dead for years, and though the last 4 fucking installments. Fanboys need to wake the fuck up and admit that their shitty franchise is a dead, molested, rotting corpse that Square-Enix keeps digging back up in order to profit off of retards.

    Still, however, Spoony finally can feel as if he’s put his demons to bed, with the game that signaled the impending death of a franchise that has always been at best, mediocre, average with maybe only 3 good games to it’s credit, ever. Congratulations.

    If Spoony had to review FFX for more than 2 minutes, I could see him shooting himself in the head. And FFX is so absolutely godawful beyond the point of any reasonable point of mentioning, with it’s locked off, stupendously linear pigshit on narrow paths with basically zero gameplay anywhere in it, with the worst characters that the franchise ever belched up, and the most unwatchablly painful acting, no character development, and retardedly inane story, that honestly…. FFX is SO BAD OF A GAME that not even Spoony’s sarcasm could carry him or anyone watching through it’s unbelievable, painful wretchedness. FFX is unreviewably bad, and nothing could get anyone through it without wanting to puke.

    FFX was the single game that killed me off of ever liking the FF franchise ever again. I watched someone play 3 minutes of FFX-2 and I felt like I needed to take a shower, it made me feel dirty just for being in the same room of it.

    I never so much as picked up another FF game since FFX,… until I begrudgingly picked up FF12, years later, to give the franchise another chance… and it was also unplayable, shitworthy garbage.

    And FF13 is going to suck, too. Yes, it is.

    Not only does all of the screens and news of it scream to be the same bullshit from FF8, FFX, X-2, 11, and 12, which were all fucking awful. It’s hyped to the moon, but Final Fantasy has been dead, and has had it’s corpse raped ever since FF8 sounded the death knoll, FF9 gave us false hope, and FFX stabbed the franchise in the back and X-2 pissed on it’s dead rotting carcass.

    Final Fantasy sucks now, and it’s been dead for years, and though the last 4 fucking installments. Fanboys need to wake the fuck up and admit that their shitty franchise is a dead, molested, rotting corpse that Square-Enix keeps digging back up in order to profit off of retards.

    Still, however, Spoony finally can feel as if he’s put his demons to bed, with the game that signaled the impending death of a franchise that has always been at best, mediocre, average with maybe only 3 good games to it’s credit, ever. Congratulations.

    Probably not going to be seen, but anyway. NOOOOOOOOOOOOO, I was hoping it would be padded out a little longer then that, but o well. Great job with that. I hope to see Final Fantasy X soon.

    The funny thing is, I actually found your site through Tvtropes.

    I’m glad I never played this game. Hope to come back to life soon. What are you opinion on some of the other square games at the time, like Chrono Cross :p.

    Very well done. Though I think you might have just made “Eyes on Me” a great song by associating it with the most thoroughly entertaining review I’ve seen in my life.

    Keep up the good work and know that in a million fucking degree weather with a fever, you managed to give me half an hour of sanity.

    Ah, great vid, great vid.

    It’s been long in the making, and although I wish it had gone on longer, I can understand why you’d want to just finish the game off.

    I rented this back in the day, spent a good 60-80 hours on it, was outside the final castle gates, when my parents forced me to take it back because I’d had it for so long. Needless to say, I was a tad upset. I can barely remember anything about the game other than it not making a whole lot of sense.

    After you started to review it I went and bought the game for 3 bucks (shipping included), and I’m now looking forward to diving into it again. Oh I know it’s bad, but I suppose I’m a bit of a masochist.

    Thanks for the awesome review Spoony, looking forward to seeing more from you.

    OK, so I’ll admit that I was proven wrong when it came to what I thought this was going to be about. I was thinking Spoony was going to do a retrospective of his own work to date and then tell us that he was getting an apartment with Scarlett.

    Needless to say, though, finally wrapping up the Final Fantasy 8 review once and for all was pretty damned epic, too! I’m glad I got to see a brief overview of some of the things I didn’t miss by being unable to play this game beyond halfway through the second disk.

    As for the whole “Eyes On Me” thing, I guess I just lack any real perspective on it from the standpoint of the game. Even though I knew it was from Final Fantasy 8 when I found it online, I’d never heard it in the game itself, and chances are I never will, for reasons noted above, and maybe that’s why I think that as far as sappy love songs go, it’s actually pretty good all on its own. Maybe that makes me a pussy of some sort, but I’m not sure I really care.

    Anyway, thank god FF8 can now stop being an active part of Spoony’s life. I can’t wait to see what new horrors the crazy fool will choose to subject himself to. Once he’s “resurrected,” that is.

    Just send your money to Linkara. All of it.

    I hope that he continues the bashing of FF series, since this game series seems to be like his AVGN. And to all of you who are saying this was rushed or that FFVIII wasn’t a bad game to you, remember, this game SCARRED HIS SOUL. For those of you who have never played a game like that I envy you.

    I have played that soul scarringly bad game. It showed me the darkness that resides in the hearts of men.

    What could be next? Possibly a review of X, which he has hinted at. Or perhaps a Phantasmagoria style riff on the up-coming XIII. Either one would be ducky with me.

    //That was quite the build up to something not that spectacular.
    If you already hated the game before starting the long play comedic commentary
    review ,only to get tired of it half way through, why start it ?//

    He started the first video over two years ago, plus with the recent problems he’s been having, I’m pretty sure that the review has been more of a headache than anything else. He probably figured “let’s go out with the biggest bang I can pull off, and just hit the absolute bull-shit high-lights”. He could have gone on longer, and I doubt Ripper will ‘suffer’ the same fate (he DID play Phantasmagoria 2 all the way through). I’m kinda hoping for a sequel of this and focusing on X. 9 was just meh, I hardly see anyone talk about it, be it positive OR negative, and I don’t blame anyone. It didn’t do anything drastic or had anything really epic about it. Ten though, THAT one has a fence much like 7 and 8 did with the supporters and haters.

    Not that it’ll change anyone’s mind, but Ultimecia was trying to destroy time because she was arrested as a girl before she ever was possessed by the sorceress and held prisoner by SeeD because the history texts (written by Selphie of all people) named her as the evil villain who wanted to destroy all creation.

    So being arrested and viewed as the most evil thing since whatever passes as the Hitler equivalent before she did anything wrong drove her nuts. She decided that history was trying to kill her, so she’d kill history in return. This is all borne out in the game’s script.

    Thing is, the whole story takes place in a time loop. During the first play through, a lot of it doesn’t really fall into place until (like why Cid appoints Squall a squad leader and sends him off on that mission, Ultimecia’s speech before Irvine fails to take the shot etc) much later in the game because you’re started out in the middle of the story.

    Why so much with Laguna? Squall is Laguna’s son. Ellome is Julia’s kid.

    Do you mean the same Anonymous from 4chan that’s had a number of their members end up in prison for unlawful protest, harassment, and cyber-terrorism over the last 2 years? Yeah. I don’t exactly call getting jailed and making some people sympathize with a cult “working”.

    On a lighter note, I found this to be possibly the best part of the FFVIII review. It’s a shame we won’t get a rant about the ending, but I think what we got instead was way funnier. Why do I get the feeling that “things will never be the same” doesn’t just mean “no more FFVIII”? Will we be seeing potentially a new camera, a new set, and *gasp* a new Spoony?

    I look forward to the next video.

    Now I wonder what will my brothers think of these reviews, considering they love the game…

    Heh, I can see you fooled most others, but there are a few hints throughout the playthrough that you really do enjoy some parts of FFVIII, (or else you wouldn’t have so much merchandise), you have the cards, the figurines, even a cosplay outfit! And the ending line at the end, isn’t really so much a snark at X then saying FFVIII wasn’t actually so bad, but I can see you wanted to keep this rather under wraps as… well the part of the reviewer is to be believed, but I believe I can see it’s all a matter of entertainment value, regardless a more then fantastic send off.

    This one was pretty good, but not quite as good as the other parts. Dr. Insano is getting a tad annoying, I have to admit. Still, it wasn’t a BAD video, but it would’ve been nice if you spent more time with the game than with the special effects. Of course, I can see why’d you prefer to work on the special effects, instead.

    By the way, this isn’t the last review you’re doing, is it?

    My favorite quotes:

    I just don’t see the purpose of destroying time, I mean, you’re killing everyone whose already dead..?
    He never brought up that little factoid, I mean, that he might feel a LITTLE conflicted, shooting the woman WHO RAISED THEM, IN THE FACE.
    They’re more concerned about the psychological effects of summoning GFs more than the power to SUMMON THE DEVIL whenever they feel like it!
    THAT. CAN’T. HAPPEN. You can’t just go filling PLOT HOLES with BULLSHIT! I’ve had acid flashbacks that have had more narrative coherence than this!
    NOOOO! SKIP IT! SKIP IT!!!!! Time compression!!! …………….. BATTERIEESSSS!!!!!!!!!

    And kudos to Spoony for one of the most incredible review series, ever! You’ve just outdone yourself, just keep them coming! You’re great.
    And bout the theme song, I know Spoony is jut using sarcasm about the men cards :P,or why do you think he show all the guys cruing anyway? :P. We all fell for that time to time. :)

    I think spoony officially HAS to review final fantasy X now, u cant ad the quote “it didn’t get even really get that bad until final fantasy X.” and not review it, and to do so would be cruel and inhumane, id say review X-2 while hes at it but although it probably insanely hilarious but it would mean sponny (or GnarSpoony as I like to call him) would be forced listen to Yuna in her infinite attempts to go from whale hunter to fucking pop star with “smash hits” like 1000 words. Which in my opinion is a fate worse than working for Paul Warner……………………….(I Heard That Curtis!!!!!)

    Lol, First time commenting on a video Spoony. The whole review was awesome! I liked FF8, but I am a Final Fantasy fanboy. But even though I enjoyed it, I wondered everything about the game you mentioned in the reviews, like how the hell did the Ragnarok just show up? The only thing I’m going to say, and it might have been intentional, was that the girl Laguna hugs in the ending was Raine, not Julia. Julia was Rinoa’s mom. Apparently, Raine and Laguna were Squall’s parents. As said by the game creators. Glad they couldn’t flat out bring that little tidbit of relevant information in the game. They had to talk about it in press releases. Meh.

    FYI, Fruchtchen, a doujin is a fan comic. That comic Spoony was showing of Rinoa and Seifer getting it on is a doujin.

    I get the impresion though, that the whole purpose of this review is spoony trying to overcome the HUGE soft spot he has in his heart for this game :)

    Im just glad i played this game when i was part of the target audience, as a teenager you just think
    “WOW AWESOME SPACE SHIPS AND SUMMONING GODS, WOOOHOOO!!!”
    All thats left now is nostalgia…

    …but im still glad i plyed it back then.

    If Linkara intends to bring Spoony back, then this plan begs the question of how Burton will return.
    Perhaps Spoony will complete one of his unfinished droids as a successor to Burton. I am interested to see a new partnership between Spoony and his robotic friends, however endearing Burton may be.

    Wow. Just wow. What a great ending to a series that a lot of people wanted you to complete. Loved the Star Trek III reference. I know Linkara will bring you back, but what about Burton? You may have opened up a can of worms saying that FFX was bad. Now I know that a lot of people will request you do a review of the game.

    I guess Spoony has a love-hate relationship with FFVIII.
    Not only has he the game but has action figures, a life-sized gunblade and costume…

    And actually what more proof than the credits…

    Happy Revival, Spoony! And welcome back.

    This is my whole theory, and I’m not sure if anyone’s ever stated this before really…

    A lot of ‘fans’ of the series started it all off with FF7 on Playstation, the game which pretty much has the reputation of being one of the best and most epic games of all time. When FF8 was announced, I think a lot of them immediately rushed to it pretty much expecting FF7-2… and I’m sure a lot of them were pretty disappointed with what they got. So yeah, I seriously can’t blame you for wanting to get this review done NOW!

    BTW, seeing you dressed up as Squall, a character that you seriously can’t stand… genius! That seriously made my day.

When FF8 was announced, I think a lot of them immediately rushed to it pretty much expecting FF7-2… and I’m sure a lot of them were pretty disappointed with what they got. So yeah, I seriously can’t blame you for wanting to get this review done NOW!

    BTW, seeing you dressed up as Squall, a character that you seriously can’t stand… genius! That seriously made my day.

    even though I love FFX (i’m sorry, i liked tidus), I would still love to see that review.
    great conclusion to an epic review.

    I just watched your video commentary on this video. Raine, she’s the chick you work for in the town with the giant caterpillars. And the little girl, Raine’s daughter, is little Ellone. Yeah, I had the same reaction to the ending you did, a lot of the storyline got so meshed up I lost track of the characters after the 100th one was introduced.

    Epic, Spoony, just epic. The whole series was funny as hell.

    I have to say, though, I liked FFVIII. Not the greatest game ever, certainly, but I enjoyed its battle system, junction system, and even Triple Triad, and continue to think it has one of the greatest soundtracks for any game ever. Still, I can see how some of the features that I enjoyed may annoy others, and my liking the game didn’t stop me from enjoying these reviews.

    Wow… What an abrupt end… Kinda glad this is FINALLY over though. But my god, I know what you mean by how much this game sucked. I want to buy that FF8 sucks shirt and wear it at any conventions that I go to.Hell, just in general I’m sure it would start some fights. Great ending by the way. I can’t wait to see more stuff! It’s always so entertaining, and doubly so when the good doctor is involved.

    I can see why you needed the extra time with this review. It is truly the end of an era. Your classic bashings of Final Fantasy 8 were how I and many others found your material to begin with. I’ve waited ten years for someone to give this game the torching that it truly deserved…and you were finally the answer to my prayers. :-) And I do still love occasionally going back and listening to your rants about drawing magic, because I had the same frustrations when I played it ten years ago. An awesome review, and a fitting end to a long series. A couple of comments:

    At 9:00, you mentioned the one point that may be the single worst plot twist I’ve ever seen in an RPG (and that covers a LOT of ground). None of the main characters remember growing up with each other and that their matron (or let’s face it, their nanny) is the woman they need to kill. And NONE of them remember this except Irvine. I just found it so lame and so convenient and so lazy that they just ALL happened to live with each other as children and ALL managed to come together practically at once. And I agree…what the hell is a GF Critic? And why are none of them ripping Irvine’s head off for not saying anything and wasting their time. It’s the worst plot twist because it sets in motion the beginning of all the other bullshit like Ellone and everything else, and grows out like a chimera of crappiness (to paraphrase Linkara). For me personally, it annoyed me so much that I stopped playing the game for a long time, and only finished it later because I had this stupid need to finish what I started (as an RPG fanboy). I’ve never touched it again since.

    The Seifer/Rinoa hentai pics and comments were funny as hell, and a nice callback to an earlier review where you talked about all the really weird porn that grew out of Final Fantasy games.

    And no, my man card is intact…when the song came on, I muted the computer. Nice try, Spoony.

    Woh, it’s finished.
    I thought you could have done the end of the game properly though, Spoony.
    You skipped a lot too.
    But overall great review, but I guess the AMV at the end was beautiful and that IS the ending, so everyone wins. Seifer didnt die. Never thought he’d laugh.
    And Squall smiled!! I thought I’de never imagine that but when he smiled I think I died, XD
    Great work, a slightly lazy finish but with so much more game to do, I don’t blame you.
    So it was 10 episodes, Minus counting the Aprils Fools special.
    Way to go, this review rocked, I just LOVE the party everyone had at the end haha.
    Is Squall behind the camera lol. Great stuff ;D

    I would have to say that the whole “I’m ruining this vision of ‘romance’ for you all forever” bit with the deserved thrashing of the song, the cameos, and then…*ahem*…the “visual aids” to back it up makes this THE MOST EPIC game review of all time. Period.

    Never in my life have I ever felt so simultaneously surprised, repulsed, laugh-out-loud amused, and embarrassed, all while at the same time sitting upright in my chair, fist in the air, loudly cheering on The Spoony One as he curb-stomps one of “the greatest romances in a game story EVAR”.

    The only complaint I would have over this whole “finished it off in one shot” approach is that some of the most enjoyable moments of this review series have been the skits put on, and now that kind of comes to a close. Dr. Insano for president, Spoony cowering in a corner as Selphie dooms some poor corner of the world, the “anti-magic field” sales pitches, all comedy gold. Yah, we’ll have more down the line, but who knows what other fun skits may have come out of going over the other 3 disks of this mess bit-by-bit?

    Also, how sad is it that I, as yet another poor soul who played through this crap, actually could identify the answers to some of Spoony’s rants? (Ex: How Laguna ended up as the president of Esthar.) Yes, there are some things in this game that beg the question “how the hell did THAT happen?” which could be answered if you paid close attention to things going on. On the OTHER HAND tho, this game’s storyline is SO poorly written, SO incomprehensible at times, and SO outright mindless at times that you need a goddamned SCORECARD written by scores of fanboys compiling information at GameFAQs and supplemented by developer interviews that it becomes pointless. That is not an “epic story”, that’s just stupid. And I’ll see your “Final Fantasy 8″ and raise you a “Chrono Cross” in that regard.

    And while Final Fantasy 9 suffered from just as bad a storyline, at least THAT was entertaining to play a straight, not-bothering-with-the-worst-sidequests playthrough of. Final Fantasy 10, however, was just right back to the pain. Yes, it had a couple interesting characters. Yes, it had a few moments. Yes, otherwise it’s just as awful as 8 was. And this is coming from someone who actually TRIED to do ALL the side stuff (including putting real effort into getting a real blitzball team together) to try to find any lasting appeal to it. My reward? By the last dungeon, I had so broken the game and gotten sick of the story that I just handed off my controller to my brother, who had otherwise not touched the game, said “finish this for me”, and watched him blow thru to the end and watched the ending. Yes, technically, I didn’t even finish the game myself. I had just thrown up my hands at that point.
    (PS: Yuna + Lulu with Ultima + 1 MP casts = really pointless endgame. And that’s before ultimate-weapon Auron is added in there.)

    ANYwhoo, rock on, Spoony. Damn the fanboys and full speed ahead. We’re riding this train all the way to hell.

  • Saryon

    As usual, an entertaining review. Despite being someone who actually enjoyed playing FFVIII.

    I mean, seriously, it’s a matter of opinion. Most of the things Spoony whines about are things that really didn’t bother me about the game, and the things I didn’t really buy into(such as their GFs erasing their childhood memories…ugh), well, I just shook my head and continued on. With enough nitpicking, any game will have numerous flaws. You could probably find plenty of flaws with a game like Chrono Trigger if you tried(and I’ll go on record as saying that Chrono Trigger is still one of the best RPGs ever made). That’s the nature of nitpicking.

    I may be in the minority in saying that I was able to follow the plot the whole way. However, the warning alarm on the bullshit meter was going crazy on numerous occasions.

    Did my difference of opinion alter how I viewed the review, or change my opinion at all? No and no. He had legitimate points. Even though he blew them all out of proportion(according to my own opinion, that is), the way he did it was hilarious.

    So, basically, people just need to stop freaking out whenever someone else’s opinion doesn’t match theirs. I disagreed with the vehemence of his objections in many cases throughout these FFVIII reviews, and yet still enjoyed the review.

    I won’t comment on the FFX bit…I enjoyed it as well, but can understand how some people might not have. Although, if you hated the voice acting in FFX(which I didn’t, but it had low points), then I imagine you probably couldn’t get very far in FFXII due to the voice acting(which…had some good points…far too few good points).

    One final thing…some trolls just suck at trolling. If you’re gonna troll, at least do it properly, and with at least a microscopic shred of subtlety. It is many times more effective that way.

    Hey, man, I’m surprised that of all the things that you did in this review (yeah, I know you did a lot so you couldn’t get EVERYTHING but…) you did not get the Freudian Ultimacia. That being…

    Before penetrating her “lair”, you discover that her “lair”‘s entrance is cluttered with the bodies of dead “white seed”…can you NOT get more blatant than that?! They could have been ANY color besides the color that doesn’t refer to sperm! Then top it off you reach her room and she starts spouting out “kurse all seed”. This bitch was the worst fucking (“worst fucking”, not the “worst fuckable” you fanboys…and certain fangirls I suppose) villain in ANY Final Fantasy to date and that tops both Seymour the Sailor and Techno Trance Kuja. The only reason she is even in this game is to make it longer than it already was!

    To tell you the truth, I also have heard a rumor that this was NOT the original script for FF8, that the original script was much better than what we got. However, somewhere along the lines things got fucked up and so they decided to scrap it and redo it near the end, so we got the current FF8. Can anyone confirm this?

    I also got to bring this out in the open…whenever Square fucks up on anything, it is immediately covered up by Nubou Uematsu’s music. I mean seriously, take ANY Square game and look away from the TV while playing or put on a blindfold and you’ll STILL enjoy the game just as much as you do while looking at it. However, Eyes on me is the only song in which I could never comprehend as to why they put it in this game (and trust me, I’m a pretty romantic guy and even I think that Eyes on Me is for the emos more so than the romantics.) So thank you for ruining your track record, Uemastu!

    Ugh, this game infuriates the hell out of me with its existence *Daisuke Ishiwatari’s “Existence” plays*…but at least it has decent music and a decent card game *pulls out a deck of Triple Triad cards and shouts to all the FF8 fan girls* Now who wants to play some sexy Triple Triad!? Loser strips!

    One last question before I go……….Daisuke Ishiwatari vs Nubuo Uematsu…who will win!? DISCUSS!

    (I know I kind of ranted, but it wasn’t really my intention to make a lot of sense to begin with, just to have a little fun)

    Hey, man, I’m surprised that of all the things that you did in this review (yeah, I know you did a lot so you couldn’t get EVERYTHING but…) you did not get the Freudian Ultimacia. That being…

    Before penetrating her “lair”, you discover that her “lair”‘s entrance is cluttered with the bodies of dead “white seed”…can you NOT get more blatant than that?! They could have been ANY color besides the color that doesn’t refer to sperm! Then top it off you reach her room and she starts spouting out “kurse all seed”. This bitch was the worst fucking (“worst fucking”, not the “worst fuckable” you fanboys…and certain fangirls I suppose) villain in ANY Final Fantasy to date and that tops both Seymour the Sailor and Techno Trance Kuja. The only reason she is even in this game is to make it longer than it already was!

    To tell you the truth, I also have heard a rumor that this was NOT the original script for FF8, that the original script was much better than what we got. However, somewhere along the lines things got fucked up and so they decided to scrap it and redo it near the end, so we got the current FF8. Can anyone confirm this?

    I also got to bring this out in the open…whenever Square fucks up on anything, it is immediately covered up by Nubou Uematsu’s music. I mean seriously, take ANY Square game and look away from the TV while playing or put on a blindfold and you’ll STILL enjoy the game just as much as you do while looking at it. However, Eyes on me is the only song in which I could never comprehend as to why they put it in this game (and trust me, I’m a pretty romantic guy and even I think that Eyes on Me is for the emos more so than the romantics.) So thank you for ruining your track record, Uemastu!

    Ugh, this game infuriates the hell out of me with its existence *Daisuke Ishiwatari’s “Existence” plays*…but at least it has decent music and a decent card game *pulls out a deck of Triple Triad cards and shouts to all the FF8 fan girls* Now who wants to play some sexy Triple Triad!? Loser strips!

    One last question before I go……….Daisuke Ishiwatari vs Nubuo Uematsu…who will win!? DISCUSS!

    (I know I kind of ranted, but it wasn’t really my intention to make a lot of sense to begin with, just to have a little fun)

    Epic! Although I have to say I like the SONG ‘Eyes on Me’ but not the lyrics. Hell, I like all of Nobu’s work, the first game composer I got into, and it really got me into game soundtracks. I thought the review was freakin’ awesome, top notch. When you came out dressed as Squall I was laughing like hell, hope I didn’t wake the neighbours. However, I was kinda dissapointed that you didn’t mention the other three bosses after Ultemica Greiver is one of my favourite Final Fantasy bosses, Gilgamesh being the first. Keep up the amazing work, and congratz on finally finishng. (no pun intended)

    Yeah, I admit, FF8 still has one of my favorite video game endings. Squall being lost in a time-paradox, wandering the desert until his preception of reality shatters and he dies… or does he?

    The song is lame (though it would have been GOOD if it didn’t have lyrics…), the story is all over the place and
    doesn’t make ANY sense, but the ending I thought was still pretty epic.

    But that’s me… I’ll tear up one of my man cards now…

    XD Shame it had to end but you soldiered on quite a bit here even if you did skip some of the many many many more problems with FF8. (I could watch you bash FF8 for all eternity…)

    If it makes you feel any better though, I don’t know a single person EVEN AT LAUNCH who liked FF8. Not one.

    Now, FFX? THAT is a whole other story. I honestly didn’t think it was that bad (poor voicework for Tidus aside) though hardly as good as previous FFs (though I know at least one friend who feels otherwise). Heck, I even have a soft spot for the over-hated X-2 (c’mon guys! It’s a spin-off sidestory!). Then again, I even have a soft spot for damn Mystic Quest.

    Yeah, MQ is better than 8. Fact.

    That said, I am curious as to your opinion on XII. A different team, a different focus, and I felt one of the best FFs in a long time though, of course, there’s TONS of people who disagree on THAT one. Yeah, coulda used more character development but the world was truly intriguing.

    It’s funny to me when people compare one Final Fantasy to another Final Fantasy. It just doesn’t seem like a coherent franchise to me. They just keep popping out JRPG under the same name hoping people will go buy it. More like Never-ending Bad Trips.

    “Ugh. Still don’t get how the same people who think Kefka is the ultimate FF villain hate Ultimecia. Kefka actually had no motivation other than evil.”

    Because he pulls ‘insanity’ off way better than Ultimecia and you spend most of the game witnessing just how power hungry and crazy he is. It also helps that he was first subject for Magitek and it snapped his mind.

    Anyway.. y’know, I just realized that EarthBound ALSO has a Big Bad from the future (or was it the past? I can never remember) and they come up with a better plan to deal with it than Laguna does – and THAT game was 100% pure crazy.

    “Because he pulls ‘insanity’ off way better than Ultimecia and you spend most of the game witnessing just how power hungry and crazy he is. It also helps that he was first subject for Magitek and it snapped his mind.:”

    Kefka pulls off “insanity” by killing people. That’s pretty much all he does. They never explain why he’s nuts in the game. (Let’s leave that for a bonus with the PS version!) Then he attempts to destroy the world on a whim. (Or else he’s just pissed because he wasn’t in the opera or whatever) That’s his “great” character development.

    Ultimecia pulls off insanity quite well if you’re willing to look at things from her perspective. Captured by SeeD before she does anything, she’s hated and feared ’cause of a history book written by Selphie. They passed verdict on her long before she had any reason to even attempt time compression, and basically set up their own self-fulfilling prophecy. With history against her, all she can do is try to destroy history.

    All her speeches, why she recruits Seifer, Seifer’s interrogation of Squall etc all stick to this subject. She has an actual motivation for wanting to destroy the world. It’s not just “Lulz! She’s nuts! For no good reason!” like Kefka. She’s extremely bitter and off her rocker as a result, but there’s an actual cause behind it. Kefka doesn’t even have a personality. He’s one of the shallowest, least explained and bafflingly popular characters ever.

I just hope he will not overdoit because what little humor he achieved with his Dr. Insano would become unfunny and forced.

    Excellent finale.

    You know, what really makes this whole game look about 20X worse is that the cinematography and a lot of the character and world designs look beautiful, thought-out, and directed (all weapons aside). It appears so professional on the surface that I would have bet money that the game would have been incredible … and then you get this.

    The only thing worse than a sucky game is a game that clearly had all the potential to be great, but tanked merely from the laziness and stupidity of it designers.

    I’m disappointed spoony. Part 10 and this video were just stupid. I loved your older vidoes of FF8 because they followed the plot and you shared your viewpoint as we went along, but now you just rushed it to the end.
    In particular i hated the Doctor Insano parts, the first time you introduced him it was kinda humorous, and showing him at the ending in this video was also ok, but the others scenes with him were just childish and unpracticed.

    I can’t believe that the FF8 review series is over. I expected you to put up a bit more of a fight. You just proved to your haters and FF fans that you gave up too soon.

  • mhayes86

    Just out of curiosity, if you hate FFVIII so much, why do you have action figures of Squall, Rinoa, and Seifer? Just for the sake of having extra collectibles?

    Anyway, I understand a lot of people’s dislike for this game, but I actually really liked it. It was by far not the best, no FF could outdo FFIV, VI, or IX (my three favorites, I’m not a big fan of VII and find it to be overrated), but I enjoyed it nonetheless. In my opinion, the bane of this game was the drawing of magic. That was the most boring and excruciatingly tedious aspect of it, but in a way it sort of paid off because you could junction 100 of whatever spells to your characters stats and turn them into a powerhouse.

    The only other downfalls I felt for this game was how a bosses difficulty depended upon your level, and since you could never get rid of Squall, he reached level 100 in no time. The other being the fact that 75% of the game, your party was split into two groups for large gaps of time. If you didn’t balance out their levels by using the other characters long enough, then when the group split, that party was relatively weak and made things difficult.

  • Blunderbuss

    Adding to the ‘I can’t believe you skipped this’, you missed the part where the game laughably tries to explain why Squall is such a pathetic whining man-child. Essentially, when he was five, his ‘big sis’ Ellone disappeared and it traumatized him … to the point that he’s a emo loser TWELVE YEARS LATER. Even though he TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT HER. I just can’t get over that. If you’re going to have your character be emo, at least have a fucking good reason!

    And Ultimecia’s motivation … you’d think a villain with a multi-generational Xanatos Gambit would have a fucking reason.

    Anyway, fucking brilliant send-off. You nailed the major bug-fuck big notes towards the end and gave them the lampooning they deserved, and talk about a fucking brilliant ending. I nearly woke up the whole house when Spoony!Squall appeared on the scene. Comedy gold, my friend.

    Best of luck with the site and the video camera man, you deserve a lucky break! :D

    JoeO, Kefka wanted power. That was his motivation. Which was pretty clear. When he took over the world. “OF COURSE!” He actually kept ruling over it. Very poorly mind you, since he was, as said, bat shit insane.

    Great ending to one of my favorite reviews. Though I think it would have been funny if you listed Miles as: “Stunt Fist” or: “Official Face-Puncher” in the credits, rather than “Body Double”. But that’s probably just my lunacy manifesting again.

    Your hard work and effort has payed off here. This is the first time I’ve felt I really have to talk to you about your work, although I do love it so.

    I knew an episode like this would eventually be coming if you didn’t want this damned review stretching out longer than 8-bit theater has been running. That being said, you skimmed over all the important stuff to mention, and I got an honest to god laugh out of the whole use of the glitched out guy from The Thing. Irvine not mentioning the sorceress assasination thing being a conflict of interest really used to grind my gears as well. I’d like to congratulate you on being able to finally bring an end to probably what is one of your most scrutinized and most heartfelt reviews. I’m sure you’re still getting hate mail that you’ll need a lot more hemp before you’re through with them all. I wonder… Can Doomtrain be Suplexed as well? XD Oh well, thank you for giving me something to watch while I wait for Final Fantasy 11’s maintenance today! ^_^

    PS: My dad has a copy of Super Wing Commander if you’re still looking to do a review of that.

    I hope to see more awesomeness from you in the future!

    The “insano” parts have to end, the jokes feel forced and bad. Certainly you do the “dressup” bits a lot better than any other reviewer I have seen, but it still is bad and the pink bubbly thing? It seems like you would be trying to appeal to 13 year old girls, Spoony.

    And the other reviewers (I presume they are) are just not needed and noone except those that follow closely to all the tons of reviewers on twtg will not know who these people are.

    What we need is good ole’ sarcastic, accurate and witty Spoony that made the Phantasmagoria reviews and the early ff8 reviews.

    This still isnt bad, its pretty damn good. But when we are used to something more, its hard to live with less.

    “Just out of curiosity, if you hate FFVIII so much, why do you have action figures of Squall, Rinoa, and Seifer? Just for the sake of having extra collectibles?”

    Watch the commentary. He says they were donated.

    Also, fuck all the Insano hate. Dr. Insano is awesome.

    I for one, love Dr. Insano! And my favourite moment of this review was seeing Spoony as Squall. I nearly chocked with laughter! XD
    You’re right in one thing though, he does pull off the Dressup thing beter that other reviewers. But as a protip for the next time you post something: The moment you call yourself Anonymous you lose all credibility.

    Awsome ending to a great series!

    I have to disagree, the music itself of Eyes On Me is pretty good (Nobou rarely gets shit wrong lol). The lyrics do suck though lol

    This series has vindicated how I felt about this game since it first came out. Back then, all my friends wouldn’t shut up about how epic it was, or how labyrinthine and complex and moving the plot was. It always looked like a steaming pile of dook to me. Thanks for taking the game behind the woodshed and giving it the respect it deserves: NONE! :-)

    This is in response to JoeO: In final fantasy vi, you do find out why Kefka’s insane and what his motivation is in the story. Either you are extremely biased to the point where you dont care, or you have never played the game.

    In response to your question as to why people value Kefka over Ultimecia, it’s all about preference. Simple as that.

    “In final fantasy vi, you do find out why Kefka’s insane and what his motivation is in the story. Either you are extremely biased to the point where you dont care, or you have never played the game.”

    SNES version never mentions that he’s been twisted by the magitech experiments. Even with that explanation, it doesn’t actually give his character any depth. It subtracts it ’cause it insures that he’s completely one dimensional. Sociopaths are still capable of having motivations and goals etc. Kefka doesn’t. Why? Cause he’s nuts! LOL!

    People think he’s awesome because he looks like a mime, and people know that mimes are awesome. Just like how Sephiroth is androgynous, wears black, and is emo so he’s automatically cool even though a level 1 Cloud killed the original.

    Singling out Ultimecia just strikes me as howlingly hypocritical.

    Anyone looking to offset the unmanliness of Eyes on Me, just has to dig up the song Eternity from Blue Dragon. That’ll man you up right quick.

    It’s also a great argument for never letting Uematsu use vocals in songs ever again.

    To JoeO: My apologies, as I have never played the SNES version, but I have played the anthology version. The same way you view Kefka, is the same way I viewed Ultimecia during my first playthrough. I mean, you know why she’s been chasing Ellone throughout the game and possessing some of the characters (Rinoa, Edea), but she does not give a good reason as to why she wants to compress time. She just does!!

    I can understand wondering what was going on during the first play through in FF8. It only really clicked for me on the second. Her story only makes sense if you look it at as Ultimecia only knowing what happened in her time, Squall only knowing what’s going in in his time, and Cid’s the only guy who really understands
