      I got to the part where you kill Evil Rance and decided to stop playing right after finishing it. The 18v1 fight against him was dope and I wanted to end it on a high note instead of some stupid fight against God like every other jarpig

            This part at the end of Suikoden 1 is really short, but it legitimately made me sad.

            Yeah, but it’s a bit different from what that anon was probably referring to.

        You know, I have nothing of substance to add but I really can’t stand mongoloids like you. If I’m reading you correctly and if your time is so precious, maybe you should find something else to do in your spare time, instead of posting online trying to get people to convince you how and why you should spend your time in a "hobby" that you would otherwise say you enjoy.

          Lmao

          Why is he playing so slow? Anyone who intends to just press Attack on all characters should just press Auto? It even makes it so all your party members attack at the same time so you don’t have to wait for them each to take turns.

          >Anyone who intends to just press Attack on all characters should just press Auto?

            Normally, you wouldn’t just press Attack with all characters. There’s other better things to do and the game doesn’t have an MP system. I’m just saying, if you were planning on doing only basic attacks, why do it the slow way?

            You have made your point that you are not interested in playing the series at all and any other poster would be calling you an out-right troll at this point so let me make it easier on you, because I have no interest in trying to convince you:
            The suggestion is there for you to play it. Whether you do or don’t is down to you, but for pity’s sake; please don’t act like you have the ability to freely make your own decisions when you have to ask "why" you should do something if given a recommendation or suggestion, even if you didn’t ask for one–on a message board designed for discussion. Let’s not forget to humble ourselves either; anything with a "genre" is designed to appeal to a certain demographic. If you are not into something, that’s fair enough as it’s not your taste and isn’t for you, but make no mistake that if you don’t like what you’ve seen from watching a YouTube video and decide to tell others that "I don’t like it"–in the words of a generation you seem to fit quite well into, you need to remind yourself "who asked?"

        I already did. Several times since the day they came out. They’re great games. I don’t expect most of Ganker to be able to appreciate them though, they’ll compare it to JRPGs they’ve already played and will be disappointed. The creator meant for Suikoden I to be an "introduction" into JRPGs, so it’s absurdly easy. The game is coded where if you rush for to the end of the dungeon, you’ll encounter less enemies. If you wander around randomly trying to get your party to catch up in levels, you’ll encounter more enemies. I like how it doesn’t waste your time, and the games are interesting all the way through because of it. Though Suikoden II is much longer.

        >108 characters to recruit

        >six people party system

        >great soundtrack
        >good story

        >unite attacks with certain party members
        >unite magic attacks depending on what rune magic you use
        >can customize each and every one of your members with different rune setups

        To this day no other game has managed to have something like Suikoden. I don’t expect dummies like to see how good it is though, which is expected from jaded, cynical morons on this board.

        First game is short by JRPG standards clocking in at some 20-ish hours, but it has annoyances like limited personal inventory, game forcing characters on you more than any other, Rune limitations, etc. 2 improved on it in almost every way, but is also simply the GRANDER version of the original so you can gauge your interest.

          Tir and Riou could basically duo the entire Suikoden 2 if you got him earlier. Their Runes complement perfectly.

        I would honestly play the first game before Suikoden II. Suikoden I is one of few games that you would benefit from playing before the second game. A lot of returning characters show up, there’s a lot of references to the first game, and you revisit a prominent area in Suikoden II from Suikoden I. There’s a hidden subplot you can unlock if you transfer your completed save file too. You would appreciate Suikoden II a lot more if you played the first game. And if you don’t like Suikoden I anyway, I guarantee you won’t like the second one. It’s basically the first game on steroids.

          This is not true. Even though everything else you said is exactly right, I know plenty of people who couldn’t get through 1 but still ended up loving 2.
          They only went back to play 1 afterwards because of how much they liked 2 and wanted to be able to recruit McDohl.

            That’s surprising. I is very short. Especially if you don’t care about getting all Stars of Destinies. I only know of one YouTube reviewer who liked the first game but didn’t like II but never really in reverse. II was awesome to me when it came out because it was basically the first game, but with QoL features and higher budget (better animations and such, being able to run without the Holy/Godspeed Rune). It’s just buggy as hell. I recommend if anyone wanted to start with II anyway, emulate it and get the bug fix patch.

              I keep forgetting how much sheer effort went into S2’s sprites and animations. Especially because so many were used so rarely you might miss them completely or just once for a specific scene.

              I’m sure it’s simply the QoL features that make the difference. I do agree that the games are so similar that if you like one, you will most likely enjoy the other.
              But coming from modern games, it probably feels too archaic to just play 1 straight. Suikoden 2 feels modern enough and then eases you into it and then when the water’s warm enough, you can dive into 1 and not really feel the outdatedness.

        He sorta is the final boss. You can feel his influence (listen to his music, his theme is intertwined there) when fighting the beast rune. It was his intention to release it on the world after crushing the City-State.

        No. I legitimately wanted to kill him every time they let me. The fact that I had a suspicion that he was a star of destiny saved him. Jowy wasn’t a star, so he might not have been either, but I didn’t want to risk it.

        Yes if you like tactics games and the story of 4.

        Snowe had a character arc, and he was pretty much the only character to have one in Suckoden IV. After capturing him for the second time I just pitied him.
        Shame there can only be four characters in the party because I’m not swapping out my bro Reinbach for Snowe.

      Nanami is shit though. Tonfag was really surrounded by the worst people, first Jowy and then her. I wish I could just fuck off with the gypsies at the end of the game, at least Eilie cares about Tonfag and they can be a family with Rina and Bolgan.

      I gotta say, never played Suikoden 2 but I still own Suikoden 1.

      Shit is memorable as hell. I still remember some of the character names, sprites, and storyline, and I haven’t touched the game in like 25 years.

      Gremino being eaten by the bacteria shit.
      The Soul Eater rune.
      A fucking vampire that can only be killed by a magical sword that just so happens to fuckin’ talk and shit.
      Mother fuckin’ combo attacks dawg.
      Shit was lit af senpai.
      Save scummin’ the gamblin games to get infinite money.
      Game had dwarves, dragons, elves, all sorts of fuckin’ cool ass shit.

      Only shitty part is the end where it cucks you from getting all the characters cause you’re party locked with Victor and Flik so you don’t have room to get the last blacksmith and shit.
