I have had this date marked on the calendar for a long time because today
is the 20th anniversary of the European release of the game.
It honestly feels like it was yesterday that I read this magazine:

I didn't get the game until early '98, but ever since then this
game still ranks as my favorite video game experience of all time.
I made a short little tribute tonight and I definitely plan on starting a full playthrough
again one of these days.

Never really played it, but to be fair, I'm not predisposed to RPGs in the first place. I remember trying VIII once, played for an hour, then absolutely got curb-stomped by some giant flying monster thing, that I originally thought was a hopeless battle that you're supposed to lose, when someone comes in and saves your butt, but nope, I died, and if I wanted to continue, I'd have to do the whole thing over again. Said "nope" and moved on to something else.

This is undoubtedly the most popular installment, but I'll save a grade for a time I actually play it.
