I'd like to see the final results of the first poll, but I can't find it. As for the best composer, I have to give it to Yasunori Mitsuda for Chrono Cross alone. But I love most of them on the list.

Yeah I can't find the link either. But when its up someone should print it and include it with our campaign.

Oh and does anyone know the composer from the original Suikoden or Suikoden 3?

Whew! I went to the site to vote just a few minutes ago and my heart sank when I saw the poll was over. Great to hear that we made it after all!

Yeah!

If we didn't win then it's fixed. In that case we should get our 1337 teams of hackers to... hack 'em or summots.

But we did win Falz. Don't know by how much. But I got one of the last votes in and we were winning by more than 40 votes at that point.

Too true. In all likelihood, many of the votes for The Forbidden Series Tactics likely came from people who hadn't played any other Tactical RPGs. I say that not as a condemnation of The Forbidden Series Tactics - having not played any FFT games, I can hardly judge them - but as a generalization on the way people tend to vote on internet polls. Not much to be done about it but vote how you like, as often as you like, and don't take the results too seriously.

I have to say - FFT is a great game and the PSP version (you should play because it features improved English translations of several scenes, includes extra scenes not in the original PS-1 version, and has the upgraded "Ivalicean dialogue" included).


Example: Default game conversation might go like this, "on screen"

"Hey, wait. Where are you going ?"


Updated PSP - "Ivalice Accents, etc"

"Hold, sir. A word with you, I'll have. To where are you headed this storm-wracked eve ?"


It's more like they talk in The Forbidden Series XII - hard to describe, but unmistakeable when you have played that game and heard it !



For a great example - and a great overall scene that only takes a minute or so to watch, check out Imperial Judge Bergan's classic lines before his boss fight with your party in FFXII: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9769vztXW4

Is it just me, or is the entire of that post about the Forbidden Series?

Yup Moogie that's about three paragraphs more than the allowable "passing mention".

Well, that was fun but ultimately anticlimactic. :( Wish Shining Force had at least gotten a trophy or something.

Even now I can't find poll results. And nobody commented on the winner in the poll topic dedicated to it :(
