Final Fantasy VIII is notable as being the turning point where the series dramatically increased its audiovisual production fidelity and art style, featuring realistic character designs and vocals in its soundtrack. It also made some highly contentious design decisions, namely a unique magic system which did not use a traditional MP gauge and required you to "Draw" spells from enemies. However, Final Fantasy VIII did have one of the series' most beloved side activities, a card game called Triple Triad.
There was plenty more stuff revealed during Square Enix's press conference, and not just Final Fantasy stuff--we also got a good long look at the new Marvel's Avengers game.
