You may vote only once, and your decision cannot be changed.

The topic can be used for discussion concerning the poll or posting your motives :)

I voted for Suikoden IV. It is by far my favorite in the series. There were so many things in it that I found useful and intriguing and felt that should have continued in S5, but were not. I won't go into detail unless asked, but overall I liked forging armors, change of weapon appearance, training hall, and the lifelike movements of the characters. Yes, Lazlo's run was kinda weird, but it was realistic and fluid.

Whoah, cool! I never knew there was a poll on Suikosource! And yeah, favorite topic available! =)

Suikoden II! No doubt! Though I love S4 too, like Chris.

We don't normally allow polls, apparently Celes is being generous.

For my actual choice that's a tough one. I really liked Suikoden III. I also really liked Suikoden V. V has New Game +, III had trinity sight system. V has a slow opening, III has crossing through the mountains and plains for no reason.

It's hard to pick. I think I'll go with III in the end. At least it has a decent narcissist, no one is silent, a female protagonist and I like the war game system better.

I had to go with the Second Fire Bringer. S1 hooked me into the series long ago. The tragedy of the deaths of Odessa, Gremio, Teo and Ted was just so much more real than anything in any other game I played. (incidentally, what characters do [story] has way more to do with how real a game is than what they look like [graphics]. cough*Final Fantasy*cough). S2 also had an amazing story with even better gameplay elements.

But S3 had Luc and the Destroyers. Maybe the coolest name for a group of characters. As tragic as Gremio, Luc was way beyond. In fact, Luc is the reason this game is my favorite over the others. I don't like the battle system; I don't like the war system; I don't like Hugo as a main character; I don't like Chris all that much; (I like Geddoe, but I like him best with his Lightning, so he can't be the main character). Luc makes up for all of the other deficiencies in the game. His despair, depression, anger, cynicism, and malevolence make him the most real thing from all of the games. And I love that he dies. Quality characters die. Hamlet, Romeo & Juliet, MacBeth, Julius Caesar all died in Shakespeare's tragedies.

I saw this poll and thought "Thats crazy that that many people liked 4 over 5." Until I voted, saw the poll sampling size of 10. and realized it was a difference of one vote. Anyways, I tied between 2 and 3. 2 had kilelr stories and characters, but even though the trintiy view system broke from the traditional suikoden mold, I really liked the way it unfolded the story by showing it on multiple sides. Like at the end of Hugo part 1, I thought "what the.. come on!" and then I played Chris part 1 and went, "oh, i get it."

Anyways I voted s3 to even it out. :)

Ah, finally an admin-endorsed favourite topic. :P

I chose Suikoden, simply because I can. Favourites are supposed to be entirely about opinions and personal biases, after all. Not about the technologically superior, nor the perfectly logical and completely explainable, right?

Damn, right.

I ended up picking II, although I, III, and V were all close seconds. The soundtrack is what put it above III and V for me, and the length/variation is what put it above I.

I voted for Suikoden V because I enjoyed the quests that gave insides into the backgrounds of the different stars of destiny.

I voted 2 because it's the best, plain and simple. There is nothing wrong with that game in my mind, and it had cool ninjas to.

I like 4 as well, I loved seeing Suikoden in a "Sailing" and "pirates" setting, it was neat.

S4 was the worst game in the series but it was still pretty good, the hate it gets is undeserved, sure it's a letdown from earlier games in the series but by itself is not a bad game.
