I saw that we have a Shin Megami Tensei general topic so I thought it would be cool to have one for Suikoden.

What are people's opinions on the series as a whole? Which is your favorite Suikoden? What do you like/dislike the most about the series?

Personally, I think Suikoden is one of the best RPG series. I discovered it totally by accident (like I usually do with video games, lol).

I have played Suikoden I-III, and I must say I loved all of them. Suikoden I was great fun, but the story was a little light (although very expansive). Suikoden II and III are great in the story department and I would have never expected what happened with a certain recurring character, which shall go unnamed for spoiler reasons, in the third game. It really caught me off base but I guess it was actually fitting within the lore of Suikoden and it all added up.

Perhaps I enjoyed the gameplay of Suikoden II more in the sense that it was more "traditional". But Suikoden III's gameplay was pretty exciting as well.

It's interesting that the first three games were direct sequels and the last two were prequels. I would love to see a Suikoden VI set after the Second Flame Champion Wars (aka Suiko III) and perhaps see more of characters like Geddoe, Jacques, Viktor, Flik, Pesmerga, Sheena, etc. just to name a few. In any case, I just really hope there's a Suikoden VI.

I'm really not sure if I should play Suikoden Tactics and Suikoden Tierkreis.

This thread's a year too early. Make it again once I've finished Suki III (and at least started I, II, & V).

Tactics; no, unless you really liked S4.  Tierkreis; yes, definitely.  People need to stop treating Tierkries like it's a red-headed stepchild of the series, it's as much a part of the series as the ones on console.  It's more Suikoden-ey then S4 was, that's for sure.

I enjoyed S1 back in the day. Couldn't get into 5, and the thought of needing a guide or else get a craptastic ending soured me on the game. Played 3 for only a few hours, and 4 I've never opened.

No, absolutely not.

It was a cash-in with the Suikoden name slapped on it for some extra sales.

Considering you haven't played it I don't think your opinion has much weight at all.

Tactics is worth playing because it's the other half of Suikoden 4's story.

I'm actually not the biggest Suikoden fan out there, but mention must be made of the Gregminster music in Suiko1.  Still one of my all time favorite RPG town songs.  Game as a whole had a tight soundtrack.

Honestly, I don't think we're ever going to see another proper game anyway. Konami seems content to farm out their series to sub-par developers and let them churn out half-assed sequels.

Has Konami Japan actually done anything other than MGS4?

Winning Eleven maybe, but that's all I can think of.

Which is why your opinion on games is generally considered little more than a laughingstock.

I love Suikoden, even Tierkreis.  Tierkreis, despite all of the hate for it, actually felt like a Suikoden game.  To me it actually felt more like "Suikoden" than III did (I still liked III, though).
