In 1996, Konami decided to release an RPG on the Playstation game console in North America. This RPG wasn’t visually stunning, it wasn’t 3D, and it just looked like a run-of-the-mill role playing experience...But remember back to when you were in grade school and your teacher told you not to judge a book by its cover? When you play Suikoden, you’ll be reminded of it within the first few hour... read more

"One of the best rpgs to grace a system. A cast of 108 characters to recruit. The biggest flaw with this one, for me, was the lack of development some characters got, which is understandable with the age of the game and the case size. I have both PAL and NTSC versions... but can't play the latter, so got the former. "

"Release Date: December 15, 1995 (JP) Publisher: Konami Developer: Konami Genre: RPG Suikoden was a great early RPG for the Playstation. Though graphically, it looked a generation behind, the gameplay more than made up for any visual unpleasantries. The game is short by RPG standards (20-25 hours for most folks), but the ability to find and recruit 107 other members for your party helps add the the replay value a bit. Most of the later Suikoden games are better than the original in most aspects,"

The story is pretty simple, but original. You take the role as the son of one of the generals in an empire’s army. When your pop goes away on business, you find out that your best friend is a 300-year old teenager and that the castle’s sorceress wants the magic rune thing embedded in his hand. This leads to that, that leads to t” read more
