Made me want to play games again.

My wife left the country for month... TV was boring... BlockBuster recommended I rent a PS. I wanted a game to occupy my time. They recommended FFVIII. One week later I was back into games and haven't looked back since!
The gameplay takes some learning so that once you master it you feel as if you have accomplished something. The story is extremely engaging as long as you never try to explain it to anyone who has never played it. There may be better games out there but this one is number one for me.
