Final Fantasy VIII it's one of the all-time best J-RPG created by Square Enix, modern or classic. It showed an amazing courage to make things different, with it's own visual style, a wonderful OST... There are lots of things that make this a truly classics, all present in the remaster, even if some, like backgrounds, deserved a better treatment.
