Final Fantasy VIII Revisited Again!

I have very rarely played this FF, although I did blog it a few times, way, way back.  If you hate this game, I recommend you dig it back up and get one of the unofficial game guides.

We already know that the game can't be attempted without GFs.  I never got out of the chapter where Fujin and Rajin have taken over Balamb.

This time around I am pretty much ignoring the Card Game and its associated side quests.  When I do get the card,  I keep them just long enough to convert them to whatever tools they yield.

Also, I am paying no attention to the SeeD levels.  They only mean money anyway, and even ignoring them, there is more than I will ever use.

Finally, I am not knocking myself out to do every little thing and find every single treasure and draw point--this means chocobos, too.  I found all that a complete annoyance, and totally unnecessary for beating the game.

I am enjoying the story a lot more, although the characters still strike me as cardboard and not sympathetic at all.

If anything cool comes up, I will post more.

PS:  WE ARE OBEYING A STRICT LIMIT OF TWO HOURS PER SESSION.  THAT MEANS QUITTING OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF A LONG BATTLE, TOO!!!!!!!  This may be the toughest challenge of all.
