Kazushige Nojima:
>I talked a lot with Nomura about the tone of the characters and their personalities, but I was the one writing the dialogue, and in the end I had the final decision. So I added a lot of things on my own, and aside from Squall and Laguna, most of my decisions were sort of approved ex-post-facto. Some things were like, I don’t want Nomura to see this. (laughs) Nomura was constantly giving me his opinion about Rinoa. She should be like this, she shouldn’t do that, etc. He practically created a “Rinoa Dictionary” to refer to. (laughs)
Nomura is responsible for this kino character
>>
Rinoa sounds like the typical jap bitch from the late 90s trying to act flerty at all times

Worst FF character ever

that is just the tifa model reused without the epic teats
>>
>>10818442
I know they make her look really Asian now, but when I played it when it came out always had the impression Tifa was a dark haired european type look. While Rinoa always looked more Japanese
>>
>>10818479
I seen more variation between one piece girl faces
>>
>>10818479
Tifa's bar literally referenced Texas
Her face in Nomura's original art is 0% Japanese
Whereas you can kinda see Yuffie looking a little bit Japanese
Rinoa of course looks very chinky

Original art of Tifa vs Rinoa look nothing alike
Rinoa looks chinky, Tifa looks like a typical white european girl
>>
Quistis is better

>>10818305
But all of that was just from the shitty english localization
>>
>>10818534
I'm sorry but this picture is really not backing up your point
only real difference seem to be in the style of the drawings like how the left is more cartoony
>>
>>10818534
>japanese cartoons are white!
not this shit again...
>>
>>10818565
Are you implying all the characters in the game like Vincent, Barret and Aeris were meant to look like Japanese people because I Japanese dude drew the cartoon?

Tifa has big eyes
Rinoa has chinky eyes

Oddly though Rinoa’s nose is pretty European-looking

>>10818565
Tifa is derived from Tiffany
Her last name is Lockhart
Her dad is named Brian
Contrast this with Yuffie Kisaragi who is clearly Asian and actually looks the part

At most Tifa is a hapa but nothing about her mother was ever revealed
In the original artwork she looks 0% Asian though

Also
>le Japanese cartoons
Are all derivatives from Disney since Tezuka ripped off Disney
So Manga/Anime characters are heavily informed by classical European aesthetics whether intentionally or not(I think most if not all Japanese artists will be aware of it of course)
So fuck outta here with that shit you poser

I was specifically talking about the original Nomura artwork from the original PSX version

AC, Remake and all that shit has a completely different design where they turned her into a chink

Wasn't Tifa based on Jennifer Connelly?

Before becoming an actress, she was actually a model in Japan. She was pretty popular and did Japanese commercials, Japanese advertisements, and even did songs.
>>
>>10820254
>Original game is cartoony but the newer ones which clearly are stylized and aren’t really realistic either somehow aren’t cartoony
Barry fuck off to /v/
OG Tifa looks 0% Asian
Yuffie looks Asian and even has a Japanese surname to boot

You cannot find a single Japanese girl in real life who looks anything remotely like Tifa’s original PSX artwork meanwhile there are plenty of European girls who actually do have a face similar to Tifa’s

So keep coping till the end of time
Also XV and VIIR both suck
>>
>>10820259
JCon in Career Opportunities certainly is closer to OG Tifa artwork than any Asian girl will ever be
She’s half-jew to boot but no asian in her
>>
>>10820206
I mean I know they made her look Asian later on, that's why I'm saying it seemed odd. Heck they did the same thing with Cloud, the new version he looks like a member of some Kpop boyband now.
>>
>>10820206
>>10820254
Her eyes are slanty like an asian, but in one pic she has reddish brown eyes and in the other has kind of green eyes. She looks more like a eastern Russian or slavic.

Yufi looks straight up Asian

>>10818565
they are typically given caucasoid characteristics rather than mongoloid

Not canon.

You not wrong anon, FF remake looks out of date, its still in imprisoned in Gackt era, while the OG cartoon art is way more memorable.

Dont worry time will not look well on it. Probably.
>>
>>10818305
Because that's what she is.
FF7 was them trying hard to appeal to the western market and succeeding
FF8 is them going hog on that idea and making something really cringeworthy

the whole POINT is to make you THINK about it
they can be coy and say "its not canon lol"
however the literal easter eggs everywhere are NOT accidental

the story is about timeline compression and soulmates trying to find eachother no matter what
no matter how many times you fail you still never give up on the one you love

the story was simply to complex\grandiose for people to understand
so pretentious that it alienated most of the FANBASE
>geopolitical posturing, the corruption of the educational system, war for profit, false flags, arbiters of information\truth withholding information to uphold & protect their worldview, descendants paths being destiny, alternative branching timelines converging, the perils of losing yourself, soulmates finding a way no matter what the cost

the people who dont like FF8 ARE RETARDED the story is simply lost on them
it is not just one of the greatest RPG ever made
it is quite possibly, the greatest videogame of ALL TIME

>rinoa = ultemecia
not quite, but she COULD HAVE been

The whole Rinoa = Ultemecia thing is entirely because everyone in that game has sameface. Ultemecia in that pic could just as easily be Quistis, Seifer in a wig or Laguna.
>>
>>10821953
So 200% jewish straight from zion itself?
>>
I was nine or ten when my older cousin lent me Final Fantasy VIII and a magazine with a walkthrough for it inside, I finished the game and you could say Rinoa was my first video game crush

Both were equally insufferable.
At least Rinoa had the advantage of not making us have to listen to her awful voice acting.
>>
>>10818306
You tell'em buddy
>>
>>10821792
Imagine the smell

Just got up to the part where Ultimecia kidnaps Seifer after he tries to kill the president, I can't believe there are actually people who don't think R=U, it's telegraphed as she walks into the portal then Rinoa runs out from the same side of the screen, as if Ultimecia passed through a changing room. Most obvious "twist" in history. Should I even bother continuing this game?
>>
>>10820353
i'd argue that the majority of the ingame models for the ff8 characters have more of a western flair compared to their cgi models and mannerisms which are very obviously asian the majority of the time.
>>
>>10818290
She's a spoiled rich kid and there's nothing special about her,
except for the fact that her teenage love antics was exactly what Squall needed to "undo" the mental damage he had experienced by being a product of an orphanage and child mercenary training camp, just in time for Squall to get his shit together and be capable of defeating Ultimecia.

The two characters simply do NOT connect until the end of disc 1, and it starts entirely one-sided on Rinoa's part.
>>
>>10825536
>should I even bother continuing this game?
yes. it's super kino.

Make sure you bring Rinoa with when Squall goes back to Balamb Garden, and make sure you have Irvine pick out the correct song.
>>
I remember kinda enjoying the game back in the day, pc version even, but never finished it, the combat became a slog and drawing was a pain.
Still it does have a certain charm

Quistis is Ultimecia. It's fact backed by science.

That's actually Tecmo though
