Yeah, the reason is that the rest may be good on their own right, but they're also "classic", like overhead view and sprites stuff made for portables or older gen consoles. VIII is "classic" in many ways, but it's got a big 3D world and models that weren't atrocious tier either so it felt like a long awaited upgrade (that never happend again.)

Another thing that made this one stand out to me, purely from the superficial point of screenshots and videos, is the full 3D battles (in the sense of all members being present and the battles being viewed from a variety of angles). I really dislike those first-peron turn based battles. Are there any others in the series that aren't first-person?

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker's battles aren't first-person, neither are IX's.

I recently started playing Xillia 2 and am liking it. The medical debt storyline is to me a nice break from the typical RPG norm.

I'm rereading the Outlander and Song of Ice and Fire book in preparation for the forthcoming episodes on their inspired TV series. I've been taking notes on my iPad while reading so that I remember things better when the episodes actually air, and so I can write more detailed reviews than the half-assed ones I've done on Amazon and in my LJ without notes.

Finished the Legends of Shannara subseries, First King of Shannara, and the short story Allanon's Quest, and am ready for the original trilogy and the stories that take place in between/afterward.

Have to get a sword to Wiseman in .hack//Mutation.

Just started Ventus's story in Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep Final Mix. Had to grind a little to make it through the end of Terra's story but it worked out for me.

On 9F of the Clock Tower in Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, gradually working through the spiderweb puzzles.

.hack//Infection - I have access to the final area and boss but have had to do a bit of grinding and moneymaking so I could buy plenty of healing items which I've divided among the party members I've been trying against the boss, BlackRose and Mistral, since my first attempt at the boss ended in failure.

Final Fantasy VI (iOS) - I finished the events at Doma Castle in the World of Ruin and have pretty much done most of the sidequests except for defeating that sky boss you occasionally encounter via airship that gives the Bahamut summon.

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix (Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX) - Just started Terra's story and am at the Enchanted Domain, the Sleeping Beauty world, where I've had a bit of fun grinding his skills.

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth - Still playing as the Persona 3 characters, and am on the fourth floor of Inaba Pride Exhibit Night, where I've found all the lantern statues I need to pass through in the correct order to advance, and have the order down, it's just a matter of getting them all without losing any characters along the way.

Just finished Brandon Sanderson's Alcatraz Versus series. Very enjoyable with plenty of fourth wall-breaking humor. Next I'll tackle Terry Brooks' Shannara series again.

Finished the Divergent trilogy and was generally satisfied. Ditto the Magic Kingdom of Landover series, and I'll tackle Brandon Sanderson's Alcatraz books again.

I can tolerate lousy dungeon design as long as the game has good automaps and puzzles don't drive you to use a guide. As for what I'm working on...

.hack//Infection - Trying out the beginner's map.

Final Fantasy VI (iOS) - After the Floating Continent.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX - Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix - Hollow Bastion: Merlin's House - Completed the events in the Land of Dragons.

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth - Persona 3 Cast - Inaba Pride Exhibit Night 3, did a request involving Koromaru.
