I don't know anything about Suikoden, why is 2 several orders of magnitude more famous than any other game in the series?

>> No.7860308

Played through the whole series last year. Huge JRPG buff but I missed these somehow growing up.

Suikoden 2 pretty much builds off the foundations of 1 and polishes it to a sheen. If you’ve played 1, 2 feels so great in comparison. Its much smoother, has a lot of QoL adjustments, etc.

But for me the story was such an improvement I was blown away. Suikoden 1s story is solid, but 2s is deeply engrossing, exciting, has amazing villains, etc. I really felt it was one of the peaks of the JRPG genre.

3 is kind of weird in comparison, but i know some who really like it, 4 blows, and 5 is a bit of a return to form but doesnt really hit 2’s highs imo.

Basically 2 is like a top tier JRPG in a solid series overall IMO

>> No.7860569

It is overhyped because it was a "hidden rare gem". It is good, but the story falls really badly after a certain event. The good ending is also bad.

I think you'll miss alot of it's great parts if you haven't played 1 first.

>> No.7860310

if you like dragon quest like rpgs Shining in the Darkness and Shining the Holy Ark are both decent.

As for Tactical rpg it is pretty much about the genesis games. Remake on the GBA is good too.

Gamegear games were remade for the CD so play them, only Final COnflict was not remade, play it after you played the CD ones.

But they are not as good as the genesis ones.

>I HATE the fact when you can NOT die.

They're basically puzzle platformers, or scrollin' & solvin', like Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle or Moai Kun, except with much bigger levels.
Dying would only make things worse, especially considering some of the Wario game salready punishes you for failing by having you backtrack a long way.

This being said I guess you could replace the backtracking by dying with checkpoints, and that would be an improvement, but it would take to change way too much of the game.

Most of the times, console warriors cling to the console they got as a kid. I imagine psychologically it's like defending something sacred, something that your parents gave you in your most precious, pure time in life.
But do you know of instances where the opposite happens?
I know a guy who only had a (bootleg) Mega Drive as a kid and now that he's an adult he's exclusively a Nintendo fanboy, and is the type of collector who splurges loads of cash on CIB copies of games and consoles.

Not retro. Console warriors are to young to have even had a PS2. In some cases it's brand loyalty but for the most part it's contrarianism.

Nintendo's consoles and their own games are just not all that great. Sure, they popularized the industry but that doesn't affect how good their stuff is. The NES has a lot of bad games, (otherwise why would AVGN have so many episodes on NES games) the N64 was a step back by pertaining cartridges despite being 64 bit instead of 32 bit like PlayStation and Saturn but Sony's PlayStation and Sega's Saturn used discs which could contain much more content. Plus they could play audio CDs so that lead to later consoles being able to do more than just play games. The GameCube is an average at best console. While Sony's PlayStation 2 and Microsoft's XBOX can play DVDs, GC uses mini discs and can do nothing but play GameCube games, and play GB/GBC/GBA games with an addon. I swear, the people at Nintendo never knew what backwards compatibility was until they made the Wii. What a bunch of dorks. I mean, come on. The SNES, I think I heard they tried to make it be able to play NES games but it wouldn't work. Well why not make an add on like Sega did for playing Master System games on the Genesis?
And Nintendo's own games like Mario and Zelda and all that crap isn't even that great. The NES and SNES Mario games were alright but the series was lame as shit since the N64 game. Fucking basedboy with a high pitch voice that runs like a goofball.

Bottom line is, Nintendo SUCKS BALLS!
Cope with it, Nintendorks.

The Sega 32X was an add on for the Sega Genesis and was introduced rather late in the console's life. The 32X plays 32 bit games such as ports of Star Wars arcade, Primal Rage, and DOOM, as well as the Virtua series of video games. The 32X gets a lot of crap for what it is. I can't hate on it if I am being honest. All it does is play 32X games, and when a console (or add on) can only play it's games and do nothing else, all that matters is whether the games are good. There are pretty good games on the 32X. Take Doom for example. Okay it's nowhere near as good as the PlayStation version, and the 32X Doom is unfinished (which is a shame) but what does exist of it is promising. At least it has good controls, frame rate, and visible graphics unlike the abomination that is the SNES port of Doom.

I feel Sega shouldn't have made Sega CD and 32X, they should've put their resources into Saturn and Genesis. If they never made Sega CD and 32X, they probably would've come up with the idea of merging Saturn with Genesis. That probably would have given Saturn and Sega better popularity.
