Offsite News: Vote for Shining Force as best tactical RPG series!

RPGamer is running a poll to find out what our favourite tactical RPG series is - Shining Force is currently in 3rd place, though not far off 2nd... so why not head over and give it another vote? :) Wouldn't it be nice to beat the "Forbidden" Series?

It's worth mentioning, that you can repeat-vote about once a day. Why vote just the once? :thumbsup:

Jeez, another of those screwy vote-as-many-times-as-you-like polls? In that case, I suppose it would be fair for me to vote for Shining Force at least once.

Voted. SF is in second place now, by the way.

They might also be including the GBA and DS entries, to call it a series.

We might be able to do it, the "Forbidden" Series is only a head by a couple hundred. Sounds like a lot but compared to the membership of this forum...

To be honest.....(looks furtively around !) - The Forbidden Series Tactics IS one of my favorite RPG-Tactical battle games....the PSP-War of the Lions version is excellent, and they redid some of the goofy dialogue from the original translation, with some very memorable Ivalician "Type" sentences / quotes....

...I love Ivalice setting, by the way.... The Forbidden Series XII's story is epic - and the final battle against the ascended Vayne has the coolest End Boss Music I'd ever heard.


.... But of course, I voted Shining Force ....twice ! (today) ;)

-----------------

Great The Forbidden Series Tactics // FF-XII quotes:


- How strange that I, Undying, should here....die..... (Queklain, when slain)

- Fate's hand dons the glove of Irony, that I should fall in Darkness....denied the Dark's embrace ! (Serpentarius / Elidibs - when slain in the Deep Dungeon)


- The house of Beoulve is at an end...but what does it matter..... Men are judged by their deeds, not their names - (Ramza, reflecting on him being the only Beoulve left after his one brother was warped away by Adrammelech, and him having to kill his other brother (Dycedarg), while he was possessed by that Esper).


"Too late and to their sorrow do those who misplace their trust in gods learn their fate. .... Hark ! Ivalice hails her true Dynast King, Vayne Solidor ! He shall defy the will of the Gods, and see the reins of history back in the hands of Man ! His time is nigh ! The new Ivalice holds no place for the name Dalmasca... The stain of Raithwall's blood shall be wiped clean from history's weave !" - Judge Bergan, before you battle him


"Hear this ! Today we write the first page of a new history, our history. Each of you must play his part. Put down this Rebellion ! For Arcadia, we fight !" - Emperor Vayne, on the bridge of Bahamut, before the final battle with the Rebel Fleet

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.

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.

Re: Vote for Shining Force as best tactical RPG series!

PostPosted: Thu Sep 30 2010 4:19pm

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
