Final Fantasy 8 Remastered offers some much needed quality of life features like a speed boost to play the game at three times the normal speed, which is good for getting through easy encounters. You can also turn off random encounters entirely if you want to focus on the story. Battle Assist also offers a hand to struggling players with max HP and ATB along with Limit Breaks available whenever.
