I prefer Squall tbh with you

I found him to be a pretty interesting character, although all his boss battles were ridiculously easy for someone who is supposed to be Squall’s rival. Even his friends were more of a challenge than he was.
His conclusion didn’t make much sense to me, though. Last time we saw him, he was completely obsessed with his dream, and would do absolutely anything to accomplish it. Then, all of the sudden in the ending, he completely abandoned it, and is instead fishing happily with his friends. Did he suddenly go “Oh well, my sorceress was destroyed. Might as well be nice.” or something?

Seifer was an interesting idea who was completely dropped halfway through the game. After Disc 2 he could be replaced by a faceless scrub to do Ulitmecia's work for how much relevance and screen-time he gets. I think he could have been great but that is basically the story of FFVIII in a nutshell, a game with excellent potential that is completely squandered and failed to live up to its greatness.

He does have the better gunblade and the scene where he cuts odin in half is bitching

WK has articulated my feelings exactly - something he seems to do often these days!

Seifer had potential and did not live up to it. He left me rolling my eyes whenever he appeared.

One thing I didn't really understand about Seifer was

why he had to torture Squall? I'm sure part of him liked doing it, but as Seifer was a student at Balamb Garden wouldn't he know what SeeD was about (despite never officially being a member)?

Technically SeeD did have the hidden purpose of fighting against the Sorceress but Squall and Co. don't learn this until after the whole botched assassination. If memory serves me correct Cid keeps meaning to tell Squall and the others the truth but keeps getting distracted by other things until it's a bit too late.

Ohh right - that definitely makes sense, cheers

I don't know if I would call him the best, but he's certainly high up there and deserves his spot on the cover. I like his relationship with Squall, Zell, Rinoa, and his main crew. He totally owned those Galbadia troops when Squall and co. were talking about how they couldn't take on all those soldiers at the TV station by themselves. He had them by the balls, man. Then Zell had to go and open his big mouth.

He was pretty cool! I would have liked if he had become something more though, as others have said. Maybe the sorceress does some magic on him that mutates/ascends him to be something of a monster and he goes out of control. How far he goes would ultimately make his redemption that much sweeter, and that fishing scene might have brought a few tears to a few eyes!

Seifer is one of the top five douchiest characters in all of Final Fantasy (excluding FFXIII, it wouldn't be fair to count FFXIII, let's just ignore FFXIII like it never existed, shall we?) so I'm not a fan.

His gunblade is dumb and impractical (inb4: all gunblades are dumb and impractical.

As WK pointed out, his character may have had potential, but certainly never lived up to it and became, in the end, just an annoyance.

Final Fantasy XIII had a rocky start, but they've certainly turned things around with A Realm Reborn. I just wish they'd release XIV already. I'm tired of the MMO feel that's plagued the series since XI.

I like Seifer, but certainly not more than Squall

Fujin is the best character. Where else can you see a one-eyed Nazi Trunks w/ Tourette Syndrome?

The nurse at the start is a pretty great character, though.

Watts really is better. I just wanted to be cool like Alive Man without completely looking like I was copying him.

I also quite like the kid who tries to make you pay him to look out his window. He was pretty swell.

The real reason Ultimecia recruited him. Edea hadn't been with Cid in a long time alright? She needed someone to fill the void. A strapping young lad.

Laguna is the real winner here. Seifer's such a fan of his.

Seifer was definitely a douche, but that's why I liked his character...? xD I really liked the 'I hate your guts but I weirdly respect you, making me not actually hate you' relationship he has with Squall and the arguments he and Zell got into. "Chicken wuss" xD

(Spoiler) I also like the fact that after being one of the main villains through half the game, in the end he's just fishing and chilling with his 'posse' and getting mad about not catching any fish.
