for me the suikoden games are more fun than FF.
I like FF also but the charming of Suikoden is to get
all the characters - its a simpler play modus, combat modus etc.
I like to collect all the characters, the story is good and you
can get easy into the game.
I have all of the Suikoden Games except of no. 3 because it wasn't released in Europe.
I like no 2 better than the others - maybe because it was the first i bought.
Via Ebay i bought than no. 1 which is also fun but the gameflow is slower.
No. IV and V are very good - but i think the charm is a little bit behind no. 2.
Suikoden Tactics is nice but the graphic and the combat mode are different.
For me - RPG best game i played till yet.
