Agreed on loving FF8, though. It remains my favorite from the Playstation 1 triumvirate. (7-9)
True, but even with digital storage 14 years is a long time (and naturally drives were smaller back then). And Japan does have the occasional disaster to muck plans up. Hell they could even have a stupid intern who wiped the disks like with what happened to Babylon 5.
