I can't stand any FF above number 9.
They started going down at 10 in my opinion, and has gone down more and more in each installment.
With that said, I thought FF8 was pretty bad, from the emo kid you play to the story and character switching off and on, to the horrible draw and summon system.
That's just me, though, a lot of people like 10 and some think 8 is awesome, I just don't.
