I want to try and indoctrinate notabohr into our cult of Suikolove. Problem is, he likes JRPGs but sometimes struggles playing retro games. Any suggestions on how I should introduce him to the franchise?
All five core games have some degree of retro jank so I'd say you may as well just start at the beginning, mainly just 'cause Suiko 1 is pretty short and breezy / arguably tighter and better paced compared to the others, even if its age betrays it the most of the five in other ways. If it hooks, then 2 and 3 are probably locks. After that who knows.
A dead series like Suikoden is a bit tough to make recommendations for since there's no natural modern onboarding point for newcomers, unlike a Fire Emblem or whatever, which appears to have several at this point.
