      I don't know where you get your pronunciation - Not that it's ever said but just logically - "Ellone" is usually pronounced like you say it but with a long 'e' after like "Ellony" - I mean nobody is ever named "Ellone" in real life but neither Rinoa, Zell, or Quistis. You said Quistis with a "K" sound for "Qu" whereas I say it with a Qu sound like "Quit" - One doesn't say "Kit" for "Quit", but I ignored it at first because it's close enough but hearing "Ellone" as "Ellone" as if the last 'e' is silent, I had to bring it up lol :-P

      Also - where do you get that Squall is Laguna's son with Raine? Where's your source??

        It sounds so good and interesting when you listen to this, then you play it, and it’s exhaustingly boring and tedious, the leveling system they chose might the worst in all of history. Listening to this is more fun and interesting that actually playing hands down

          Well... you know it is a Final Fantasy game when you don't know whats happening more than half the time.

                    This was really satisfying. I always wanna replay 8 and 7. But don't have time.

                    So it was cool to watch like a cliffs notes film ha.

                        Laguna’ s Battle Theme is one of the best in the game

                                    Cuh-wist-es. Not kiss-tis. The qu doesn't make a k sound...

                                    Same goes for mako on the last video. May-ko. Not mack-o.

                                    What a convoluted story! I've watched almost all of your recap videos and I just wanted to say thanks for covering all of these entries in the FF franchise. I don't have time to go through and actually play them all but I find the stories fascinating; and you recapping them all for me has allowed me to appreciate how wonderfully crafted all of these games are. Thanks again!

                                      My childhood game. Only because I was the one of three children to understand you have to read to get anywhere. The older two couldn't find the fire cave. 😒😒😒😒

                                        You explain alot of things too quickly, It's really hard to follow at times. Even though I played the game before, but thanks for the effort.

                                          Squall died after the sorceress' blasted him and it was all a death fantasy!

                                                        I always called her "Quiz-Itz" lmao

                                                        I also enjoy the Squalls dead/dying theory even though time compression is more likely. It kind of makes sense because the game gets weird after he gets impaled. Talking animal creatures. Nord is a weird alien race thing. Somehow everyone grew up at the same orphanage. Sorceresses are apparently more common than we thought. Adel is a weird woman man thing.

                                                        I also believe in the theory that Rinoa is Ultimecia. Makes a ton of sense. Its at the very least Rinoas body.

                                                              Hey, no, that sounds like a great idea.

                                                              Seriously though, it's incredible, arguably the pinnacle of final fantasy.
