Alright, so I bought ff8 back when it came out after playing ff7, like a lot of folks I'm sure, and I've gotten to the second Laguna dream this time around. I'm just now starting to realize why I didn't finish the game before.
So far, basically the only viable battle strategy, by an epic long shot, is to just repeatedly summon your GF. I don't understand the point of Squall, Zell, and Selphie even going on a mission when Ifrit, Shiva, and Quetzecoatl are a hundred times stronger and you can summon them an unlimited number of times per battle.
Why would I even want to attack for 100 damage when I could just summon my GF to do 600-1200 damage? You'd think at this point, Shiva would just stay above ground instead of constantly coming out of an ice cocoon every few minutes she's summoned.
Is this just how the game is, where attacking and magic are pretty much pointless and you just repeatedly summon your GF?
