    That's particularly tragic, since FF8 has one of the better ending sequences of the later series games, with some decent payoffs in terms of plot elaboration, character development and overall conclusion. And the 'home video' sequence during the credits is inspired =)

    For what its worth, I'd advise that you at least watch the whole ending sequence on YouTube (about 30-40 mins total, from the final deathblow on Ultimecia, if I recall), as it really does wind the story up nicely. Then again, if you didn't feel anything for the characters after all that play time, I guess watching the ending isn't going to add all that much for you.
