Final Fantasy VIII
7 Confusing Video Game Plots We Still Don’t Really Understand
The Final Fantasy series has always been filled with some of the most outrageous stories in gaming history, but few compare to Final Fantasy VIII. The game centers around a group of young military students and a rebellious teenage girl who founded her own resistance group. What starts out as a coup d’etat to overthrow an evil government soon takes a major twist and suddenly delves into magic, sorcery, main character switches, and alternate dimensions. Mix in time-traveling along with a heavy dose of romance, and you have yourself one of the most confusing plots in Final Fantasy history.
Final Fantasy VIII is basically a hot pot that’s brewing with different ideas, regardless of whether they mesh well or not. While you might have thought that your high school rival was actually the main enemy, it turns out that it was this sorceress you never even met instead. Fast forward to a disc later, and the game suddenly reveals that it was another completely different witch who was pulling the strings all along. All that said, Final Fantasy VIII still stands as having one of the most memorable romances in video game history despite the confusing plot surrounding it.
