My brother pirated me a copy to play. I was 13.
I've spent the last few personal threads shitting on Square so I don't know what you're on about.
This reminded me of the time that after playing the game, I asked my gaming friends why nobody told me about FF9 early. All their answers were: "The kiddy one? Man, you will be better off playing the superior/manly one: FF7"
Agreed, making the science-fantasy elements more at the forefront compared to previous games resulting in the cyberpunk leanings of VII and the advanced yet contemporary style of VIII led to creating different expectations for players who became fans of the franchise with those games, with finally introducing more realistic proportions at all times in VIII rather than only sometimes like in VII not doing any favors to IX's more traditional fantasy leanings with super-deformed models.
I'll never understand why some people take a thread title so literally.
