Am I the only one that like the Suikoden games? Sure they were easy, and not as good as Final Fantasy or Xenogears, but I enjoyed them, a good way to pass the time.

I enjoyed Suikoden! Of course that may have been mainly because you loaned it to me...

Yeah, they ARE good games. I can't wait for Suikoden 3 to come out, completely remodeled or not. I managed to get all 108 characters in the original, but haven't gotten too far in the second one. I have simply too many RPG's.



I'll think of something witty later, I promise.

Raptor, I know exactly what you mean. Too many games, too little time.

And, yes, I LOVED the original Suikoden. It was the first good RPG for Playstation, and I needed a good one after Beyond the Beyond. Unfortunately, I only got 106 of the characters.

Yes. I said it. Beyond the Beyond. Ugh. I have bad dreams about that game.

Suikoden rocks! Great alternative to the "flashy hollywood scene" bullshit that FF was, and still is, trying to pass itself off as.

And, as far as good underplayed RPGs go, how about Star Ocean: The Second Story?

Yep, I've played Star Ocean. Lots of stuff to find and the Private Actions system was a blast!

I have Star Ocean, but havent played it yet. Goes along with that whole "too many damn RPG's" thing. It looks highly cool, and I think that will be my next PSX project after getting level 99 on Final Fantasy 5 (if I don't shoot myself, the game, and a few dozen innocent bystanders first, and not necessarily in that order).

Ugh. I haven't played the second one, but the first one was a perfectly acceptable RPG with some huge glaring flaws:

1) The idiocy of presenting "choices" that aren't. For example, there's the scene where you are asked to drink tea (which you'll quickly find out is drugged.) A rough paraphrasing follows:

Do you drink the tea? (I select "no")
NPC says: Oh, please. Have some tea.
Do you drink the tea? (I select "no")
NPC says: But it's very GOOD tea.
Do you drink the tea? (I select "no")
NPC says: Are you sure? Just try the tea.
(repeat for several weeks until the novelty wears off and you finally select "yes")

If you're going to force the storyline in one direction, just DO it. The way this game did it was lame as hell.

2) 90% of the characters you recruit are absolutely useless, except for perhaps being present to recruit OTHER useless characters. Except for specific circumstances (such as the one-on-one fight against the general), there's little reason to level-up ANYONE besides a core team of fighters.

3) The other reason to collect the whole set is to trigger one very specific event (do I need to put spoilers on a five-year-old game?) TWICE I played through this game trying to get that event, and twice I wasted my time because I didn't set some minor flag along the way.

And given who it is that you're trying to heal, why in the hell would you want him back in the first place? F'ing whiner.
