    Well sorta, just the guitar intro Imho. I actually own "Secret Of Mana' or on the super famicom-"Seiken Densetsu" ( I think that's how it was spelled! lol)
    & I've loved SOM for many, many years! I actually still have my original strategy guide too! Just a side note, When I was playing it a lot back in 94, when I lived w/ my brother, he would always call it "Secret Of My Anus" :lol: I love pretty much any squaresoft game (a few exceptions aside! Saga Frontier, I'm looking at you! :lol: ) but aside from that Squaresoft has always Kicked Ass!!!:kickass::kickass::kickass:
    Btw, as a side note, if y'all all are even interested ( or even give a shit! lol) I'm a major old skool hardcore gamer geek! I currently own a PS2, a Sega Dreamcast, a Sega Saturn, a Sega Genesis, A N64, a SNES, a NES, & even a GBA SP! So feel free to hit me up about any kinda gaming issues or questions!
    I just still do not own any next gen systems. :cry:

    I don't think it's too similar to be honest. The guitar is somewhat similar, but not to the point to compare them and wonder if that's where the idea came from.

    Old school gamer here as well especially with RPG's. I was one of those who owned a TURBO DUO (The next gen Turbo Graphx CD Rom all in one system). Games like "Dragonslayer : Legend Of Heroes", Legends Of Xanadu", "Cosmic Fantasy 2", etc etc. Loved Sega because the company "Working Designs" was bringing over all the Japanese based RPGs like Albert Odyssey, Lunar, Vay, and so on. Also love sega because it was my introduction to RPG's such as Phantasy Star, and Miracle Warriors on the 8 bit Master system. I wanna get another Sega Saturn. I've owned all the older systems at some point even 3DO the only one I never owned was Philips CD-i.

    Last RPG I won was Final Fantasy 7. I'm not a big fan of the 3D/1st person perspective games. I like the old school cartoony 2D RPG's. I have been out of the gaming scene for ages but have heard their are some great 2D type RPG's on various systems I'd love. Boy those were some good times!

    What about (Genso) Suikoden? Christ I was gonna snatch those on ebay Suikoden I, and II and they go for outrageous prices!

    I should start a game in Lufia, or Breath Of Fire on my SNES emulator. Loved those! Ahhhh memories.

    Oh yeah, having cut my teeth on the original Dragon Warrior (Dragon Quest) on the NES as well as the original Final Fantasy (not to mention the likes of that D&D game that was on the Intellivision as well as the venerable Adventure on the Atari 2600), I have played many an old-school RPG.

    However, I'll have to admit the Nintendo DS remake of Final Fantasy IV (in the US Final Fantasy 2 on the SNES) is really nice, and worth picking up if you have a DS. Same with the the DS version of Final Fantasy III.

    Suikoden I and II both rank in my top 5 RPGs of all time. Love them. I was actually kind of spoiled, finding the first at a local gamestop for $10, and then a week later the second for the same price. It wasn't until like a year later when a friend commented on the ebay pricing of the games. Pretty crazy, but worth picking up.

    I've played the first part, but never got the chance to play the rest of them. That was a pretty cool game, which did have an excellent story.

    definitely no comparison there

    on the topic of gaming though, i use an xbox 360 controller and every day im at school in between classes i hook it up to my laptop and load an emulator to play super mario 64, and as im doing this i occasionally glance up to see a good 15 people just staring at me.

    Yea I beat the 1st one with all 108 stars. Sadly my PS memory card fried in my house fire back in 1999. Few years later when I went to buy these again because I wanted to beat 1 with all 108 stars because I heard you could use them in II i couldnt believe the price for them.

    Although not a typical RPG I absolutely LOVE Castlevania - SOTN one of my fav games ever. I did get lucky and found an original on ebay due to a typo for 20 bucks.

    As we all say if there were only more hours in the day. I would love to revisit so many of these classic games from my childhood, and teen years.

    The hardest RPG I ever won was a little unknown game to most that got very little mention called Tecmo's "Secret Of The stars". End boss damn near took me 45 minutes to beat!

    I could talk for days about video games. I have a collection of almost 600 games now spanning about 12 systems. About 230 of those games are for the NES. Just bought a Sega Saturn with about 6 games off of Ebay about two weeks ago, actually.

    And I love all of the RPGs previously mentioned...with the exception of Brain Lord, but only because I've never played it. I always wanted to give it a try though.

    Oh yea the SHINING FORCE Games are amazing. I won them all up to Shining The Holyark, and Shining Wisdom which were a bit different then the regular Shining Games.

    Another game I absolutely loved which was more of a strategy RPG like Shining Force series was VANDAL HEARTS for the PS1!
