I loved these games! It's been so long, but as soon as I saw those titles on the Steam Store it instantly brought back a flood of great memories. These are really classic tactical RPG games if that's your thing.

SF2 is one of my favorite games of all time, I would recommend it to anyone.

I just noticed today, I thought that Sega was done adding classics a while back and I figured that they didn't see a market for Shining Force on Steam, so I just got Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection on Xbox 360. My first time playing Shining Force was in the Sega Smash Pack 2 for PC, even though I had a Genesis.

I am so glad they did this, and also don't forget "Shining in the Darkness" .

I can't even describe how much I like Shining Force, It is one of my favorite RPG's, right next to Breath of Fire IV, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, and Fable.

We're watching you.... scum..hahaha, I love Shining Force 1, It was my first RPG, and I just started 2, but I can't deny the fact that Breath of Fire IV (the only Breath of Fire game I've played) is one of the best games I've ever played. Though I could care less about Fable, it has a good story and some memorable quests. And Morrowind had a really great atmosphere, I loved when it was raining and I was walking around in the swamp killing the flying jellyfish. But hey Bro, if you can't enjoy good games then aight. I'll be on about Breath of Fire IV until it's out on Steam. Which may never happen,

Anybody play Earthbound (Mother 2)? I was gonna buy it on GBA but I'm about $499.95 short and I don't speak Japanese,

Shining Force 2 was my all time favourite RPG. Brings back a ton of memories for me as well. I will definitely pick up these old school RPGs at some point.

Would be cool if they did other old console RPG classics as well.

Am I the only one that liked Shining Force 1 more than 2?
Dont get me wrong, i loved both games.
But in the end, Zylo FTW :]

No, I also liked 1 more than 2. And even though I'm a Zylo fan, I feel the need to point out that Zylo would only do 1 point of damage to the unkillable Domingo.

The only thing I don't like about Shining Force II (haven't played the first one) is how enemies go out of their way to run down and kill my healer instead of the person fighting them. Very annoying.

Seems rather smart of them! :D
Currently playing SF2 myself and it is giving me a little trouble. O well, nothing like a challenge.

Anybody play Earthbound (Mother 2)? I was gonna buy it on GBA but I'm about $499.95 short and I don't speak Japanese,I tried it way back in the 90s and couldn't get into it. I guess it's an acquired taste. I didn't like how non-animated the battle screens were.

Now, i have problems with english too but only writing and speaking... xDI have memories like that, but with Japanese... it's not the most efficient way to learn, but it's a great motivator.
