New, 50 comments

Square Enix's role-playing game Final Fantasy 8 is available for Windows PC today via Steam for $11.99.

The game was originally released for the first PlayStation in 1999 before getting a Windows PC version in 2000. It was later brought to the PlayStation Network in 2009.

Final Fantasy 8 was a critical and commercial success when it launched in 1999, becoming one of the top-selling games in the U.S., Japan and the U.K. of the year. The game follows the story of six primary characters: Squall Leonhart, Rinoa Heartilly, Quistis Trepe, Zell Dincht, Selphie Tilmitt and Irvine Kinneas. Like Final Fantasy games before it, players spend time in the game's world map, field map and battle screen.
