      • Genre: Strategy JRPG

        • I picked this game because it is literally my favorite game of all time, and I wanted to make our first episode an easy retro review, and something you have to look forward to.  I first stumbled upon this game from a long forgotten relic called the Sega Channel, and have beaten this game more times than I can count. The gameplay in this is the benchmark for strategy RPGs, upped only by its sequels and Final Fantasy Tactics.  This story begins the Shining Series, and is headed by a silent protagonist, Max.  He is destined to save the world from the Dark Dragon.  During this adventure, he meets dozens of comrades who enter battle with him.  

        • As to be expected, the framerate and speed in general of this 16-bit masterpiece do not really stack up to what we are used to now, so sometimes it feels a bit labored, especially on the PC port, which is where I did my replay of the game from. The graphics are merely OK, considering this was also the year of Star Fox, Sonic CD, and Mega Man X. The main drawing point to this game is the thought process and the challenge.
