View Full Version : Most Memorable World?

09-27-2014, 08:07 AM
Out of all of the entries I played I find VIII to have the most memorable world: Balamb, Timber, Dollet, Deling City, the Gardens. I can remember most of these by name off the top of my head without having to look them up. Even after replaying VII, IX, and XII, I struggle remembering the names of most of the places and what was in them. But I never had that problem with VIII.

Does anyone else feel this way?

I do. I absolutely loved the world of FF8. I do however not have any issues remembering most areas from most other games either. I'm just good at that sort of stuff I guess. Once I learn something well, I never really forget.

I am actually the opposite I'm afraid, since VIII's world is so similar in design to our own I kind of found the world forgettable, it didn't help that certain gameplay mechanics eroded the use of towns making it less likely to revisit areas. I don't know.

I do, but it's probably also because I played it way more than most of the other games over the years.

Absolutely. I can name almost everywhere from almost every game, but when it comes to awesome locales, VIII was never short of them. If I ranked the top 5 places I'd want to live from the whole series, Balamb (City or Garden), FH, Esthar, and Timber might all be included.

I want to work at the deep sea research center

even if it meant getting killed by bahamut and/or ultima weapon.

For me it comes 2nd to FFVII. I don't think whether it is memorable or not really has much to do with the game itself, but to do with how much the game meant to you at the time of playing. Of course a well designed and interesting game world does indeed help.
