    The first turn based strategy game i ever played. And it trapped me forever.


    Anyone else played Shining Force series?

    Yes! Shining Force was the game back in the day! Me and my three siblings played it and Shining Force II to death.

    Never got a chance to play the direct sequel to the first (it was on Sega CD) or Shining Force III (Sega Saturn).

    If I ever have time to do anything again, I'll play them via emulator. :D

    I play Shining Force 3 on an emulator from time to time. Still trying to finish the CD 1 of 3. Configuring Sega Saturn emulators is a real pain.

    Final Fantasy Tactics was another great one (the only game I ever bought 3 times).

    I really wanted to play the Disgaea games, but I had an X-Box at the time and moved on from consoles afterwards.

    I have downladed a Game Boy Advance emulator on my phone, just to play FF Tactics Advance & Shining Force . Both of them excellent games.
    If you liked Shining Froce, you should try the remake that was made for GBA, they added new characters (appears the daughter of king Ramladu), differente abilities and spells, and improved the lore overall.

    I feel like I have to dig out Disgaea and FF Tactics out again now =(.

    Shining Force was my first real game on my first console so yeah I played it and Shining Force 2.
    I've played shining force 3 (cd 1 and 2 I don' recall having plaed the third) thanks to a highschool friend who lent me his saturn =)
    It's not a tactical but a dungeon rpg but you can also try Shining in the Darkness. It's the rpg game that began the Shining series.
    Also you could try Shining Force Feather on DS but it's japanese only...and they changed the gameplay.

    I wasn't a big fighter fan, but Samurai Showdown was great. Dibs on Tam Tam! :D

    I think they actually made an RPG version that never made it to the states...

    In my case it was Tactics ogre: the knight of lodis, that I played on a GBA emulator, FF tactics took a lot of it, but I like the set of rules and the class system of TO better.
