Shining Force, The Legacy of Great Intention, is the starter for most RPG games. Final Fantasy (1987) may have been a start for RPG games but the really design for battles and formatting of spells did not come until 1992. When i first played this game I had never sat down and played one like it. The battle sequences were extremely drawn out. The colors were fantastic, monsters were hideous and heroes were amazing. With the re-dux of this game for the Game Boy Advance, Shining Force is hoped to make a come back. Hopefully before the following years Shining Force II will make its way back into the video game lives and anyone out there can see what a real game. I don't denounce Final Fantasy, however Final Fantasy Tactics was knock off of this game. The battle format was a mock up of Shining Force. Tactics was a great game, however if one wants to play the game thats started the real Tactical Role Playing Games look no further then Shining Force
