I actually completed Suikoden 1 for the first time this month. I was very pleasantly surprised. I've been playing a lot of old RPGs lately that I've missed the first time around and Suikoden 1 might be my favorite so far (although Shining Force 2 is also a strong contender). I'm just a few hours into Suikoden 2 though. Hopefully I'll like it at least as much as the first game. I'm aware that it's the game that most people say is the best in the series.
I'm going to keep my eye on this kickstarter. I've never backed anything before, but this might be my first.
