The only BoF I played was the 1st and 2nd ones on the SNES. I almost picked up 3 on the playstation, but I STILL have a backlog on that thing. Which one was the fan favorite?
Although I'd say play 1, 2 and 4 too. They are all great games.
The first one was kinda crappy, very typical dungeons and dragons stuff.
The second one got into a pretty dark false-religion plot.
The third one was an odd story (by the end), but I'd say it is the fan favourite, and people love the dragon system.
The fourth one is my favorite for the amazing world, but much more simple battle system. Gorgeous animations though.
The fifth one is the tough call, but some call it the best, others call it the worse. I personally respect the change of pace and 180'd setting (literally?).
And the sixth is so totally Dreath of Dire here.
