            The cutscenes always looked great so it looks like they hardly even touched those. Looks like the sprites got a visual enhancement.

              Finally!! My only hope is that it will have the ost from the Playstation version, and not the midi ost from the steam version.

                            A full-on remake (completely new visuals, expanded/reworked dialogue, voice acting, updated combat, etc.) for a game like Final Fantasy VIII would be a massive undertaking. They're probably going to have their hands full with the Final Fantasy VII remake for at least the next few years, and I imagine they're only doing that one because VII has maintained its popularity over the years. I'd say the chances of there ever being a remake for VIII are slim to none.

                            I hope they put the chocobo mini game in, because the pc version has it.
                            But many knows that FF8 lost the "master version", so Square Enix must search for another solution [begin from scratch?] and that's impressed. Let us look what they make [better] ;)

                                      PC version better not have goddam midi music!

                                      joking aside, I don't like it. Can already do high poly model swaps on the PC version and have been able to replace the midi music with the ps1 audio for well over a decade already. Plus I don't even like the ugly jittery xSal upscaling look anyways 🙅

                                      But. Don't forget: any money is worth an eventual full-3d remake.

                                          I wanna see what the pre rendered backgrounds look like, cuz they look fantastic on PC right now with the gigapixel upscaling.

I played 7 and 8 before it, but not fully, both of the games' discs were corrupted midway through the games 😭. And i played both with my older brother, so we shared a save and English was hard for me(second language).

                                                                            My brother wasnt interested in 6 since it had bad graphics. So i started playing it, and stumbled over Everything in it (one time an NPC told me to go get some rest, and i couldn't figure out that the "inn" is where i should go, so i went in loops across the world😂😂). I remember bringing a dictionary for vital words.. but god dang it was an Amazing experience!

I taught my little siblings how to read with the classic FFs, Chrono, and PE Games. PE is a Christmas tradition. ☺️ They enjoyed it so much, that they felt bummed when FFX had voice actors. (Love that 1 too, but not the remaster so much)

                                                                            but yea i hope they even remake all older FFs. (6 and 8 especially in mind for me lol) seriously, you cant make a game better than this at this moment, you have great stories/music/ game play and most importantly Nostalgia, imagine playing a better version of a game you adored as a child, with your own kid! <3

Just not remastered.. graphic wise..

                                                                                    to me though i think 8's graphics were good as is, i mean it wont be gaining as much from a remake like 7 would. in other words, would you prefer a ff7 remake and a ff8 remaster? or a ff8 remake and a ff7 remaster? since i like both the same, imo they did the better option. (however if they would remake 8 or 6 after that would also be great lol)
