Okay, so it's a good game, but some of the stuff you just have to do is just really, really boring. What makes you almost fall asleep?

GOSH!!!!! I thought drawing magic was the most boring thing ever!!! I was very discouraged by this magic system...O well, good game though.

The treasure hunt on the modred plains was pretty much too boring and the prison part..... I fall asleep there cuz nothing happened the first 15 minutes or so x_X

The most boring thing has to be the flashbacks with Laguna.. I got stuck a few times and had to do some all over X_x;
There were too many slow parts in the game.. like the spaceship scene with Rinoa. Overall I found the game too boring XD

I hated drawing magic but it was worth it in the end. And the first tim when i decided to get energy crystalls by refining 20 Elynoyle cards. I could have cried.

Geez Ididnt like it because unlike other FFs, you dont get really strong from fighting a lot, you get really strong from fighting one guy and drawing magic a thousand times. I hate draw magic.

Drawing magic up to 99 is soooooooo boring. Especially if you don't have doomtrain and the baddies keep attacking you.

id have to say ff8 is the worst in all the ff series...

04-08-2002, 12:39 PM
erm.......I voted Drawing magic from enimies....i find that sooooooo boring zzzzzzzzzzzzz =)

04-08-2002, 01:34 PM
I dont care much for love stories....the whole squall and rionoa thing bored me the most.i would rather be crushed under balamb garden than sit there and listen to rionoa and squall talk about love. :notgood:

I would have to say the Drawing part, it's cool that you can stock or cast it, plus your almost always learning new stuff, but soo boring ... :o

Drawing magic...

I loved the game but that kind of sucked. Especially if you REALLY need strong magic like Thundaga and stuff and your character is on low level, it takes on forever to A) Draw them to the full 99 if you can draw only 1 or two at time, or B) Train your character strong enough to draw 8 or 9 at time.

***This is a thing I had to realise at Ultimecia castle, when Selphie was on level20 and Squall 100.)

Why do you guys keep saying 99 draws? Cant you draw magic up to 100?

04-09-2002, 06:33 PM
I always hated it when I'm walking outside and there are random monsters (usually when Diablos hasn't learned Enc-None and/or Enc-Half) to battle...

"Why do you guys keep saying 99 draws? Cant you draw magic up to 100?"

Yes, you can. I guess some people don't because they figure that last draw just isn't worth the time just get 1 magic.

"to draw or not to draw" that is the qustion.... hehe.. YOU lazy pants, to draw one more magic is worth the time!:D

Drawing magic sucked, so did trying to get items for weapons. Not only that the fact that monsters leveled with you was a pain =). Sad part is 8 is one of my favorites cause of the story.

04-11-2002, 01:23 PM
i voted 4 drawing magic coz i had 2 say i waz falling asleep.

04-11-2002, 04:14 PM
The drawing part is boaring but its worth it after you draw a hundred for all cheracters you practicly become invincible depending on the enemy you face.:o

All those parts were boring, but Balamb moved so slow and was so limited in movement that it just drove me insane trying to find everywhere.

Compared to other magic systems, draw sucked. (but getting powerful was mad easy) The cards were boring (give me tetra master) and there were really too many tedious parts to that game, but i still like it. The Laguna parts were some of the more entertaining in my opinion, i feel to be the minority here don't I.

i'd hav 2 say battlein OVER AN OVER AN OVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!:eye:
i was in one battle once where i fell asleep(i was laguna sooo of coarse it was sooo borin:rolleyes: ) and when i woke up i died and i didm't find a save point so i had 2 do it ALL OVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!! it really sucked

"(i was laguna sooo of coarse it was sooo borin )"
Have you tried Laguna's limit break? Normally Laguna battles are rather boring, but his limit break is actually kinda cool.

Two things:

Banning the random rule from every region. I resetted so many times........

Levelling up to 100
