I cannot agree with you with the character development thing. In Final Fantasy VIII there are only six characters on your team. This small number of characters makes it more easy to develope them all (at least that's what I think) and that's exactly what they did. All the chars did have their story completed: Squall, Rinoa, Zell, Quistis, Selphie, Irvine, all of them had their moments in the game, if you played it you should've noticed that, or else you weren't paying attention at all.Originally Posted by chimpion1
And it wasn't stupid at all that they were in the same orphanatory (I think it's the correct form to write it), besides, Rinoa weren't there, and they forgot they've met before, because that's the price that they pay for using the GF's powers: their memories, and they didn't notice that until it was too late. It's an interesting story although many people like you didn't like it.
Cloud and Squall rocks!
