Breath of Fire was one of the very first RPGs I played, an' the series has always had a special place in my heart! ... except Breath of Fire V: Dragon Quarter... I don't even consider it a part of the series... Much like Suikoden ended at II for me... Anyway!!

So, here's the first tribute to the franchise. I'm already working on BoF2, planning on doing BoF3 an' haven't thought about 4 yet. Enjoy!

Funny, I'm currently playing Lufia, but drawing Breath of Fire.

If only Capcom didn't make into a IOS game this series is the one of the three RPG game series I actually play

My God, my friends and I totally geeked out on this game when it came out in '95. The first thing that really got me interested in furry characters. With Ryu, Mogu, Bleu and Nina I could wreck anything. So much fun!

I got Breath Of Fire for my Super Nes in August of 1994 for my 20th birthday.
It was actually released in Japan first in 1993 before being brought over to North America in 1994 not 1995.
I also concur that I could not get interested in BOF5 no matter how hard I tried.
The battle system was pure torture for me.
I have noticed how most really great RPG's that were really good for the Super Nes and the PS1 went downhill as soon as their respective sequels were released for the PS2.
In addition to Suikoden 2; sequels to great games like Xenogears, Final Fantasy 9 and Wild Arms 2 all went downhill as soon as they were released for the PS2.

It's a shame what Capcom is doing with it now (turning it into a generic iOS game), the series deserves so much better. Always great to hear that others enjoyed the classics too!

The lore to Breath of Fire is definitely deep and interesting... especially for parts 2 and 4. Part 2 was one of the few games bold enough back in the 16 bit era, to have a very controversial plot that resembles a particular religion in real life. I'm actually very surprised that even after all these years, no artists have taken it upon themselves to make an anime on the Breath of Fire series; yet we get tons of garbage anime that are usually short lived because they're uninteresting.

Nice. One thing I loved about Breath of Fire when I payed it- very diverse group of characters. Most games these days, the characters are all boring ol' humans.

Oh, and I'd say Suikoden V got back to basics for the most part- sadly, a little too late. III was good, but no II, and IV had it's moments but came across as half-done to me.

Dragon Quarter was a nice game with a decent story, but it never felt like a part of the series.

SHIT, SON! Lufia also?! I only liked Lufia II, and its re-envisioning for the DS. That game a had a LOT of potential, but it let me down!

Classic SNES RPGs ftw! Sweet homage to a great game! Though I think BoF 2 and 3 outshined this one.

Thanks, an' I agree! I'll be playing through 2 an' 3 in the near future to decide which one truly is my favorite... it's been a long time since I've played through either of them.

Woot BOF!!!!

BOF3 was my fav plot, but Fou-Lu was definitely my fav character in the entire series.
Do one with Fou-Lu and Ar-Tur!!!

Dragon Quarter was a mighty fine game though, even if it didn't fit into the series. Bosch was so messed up...

I completely disliked Dragon Quarter at first, but now it's one of my favourite RPGs ever. But it still doesn't feel like BoF. Oh well.

BoF III is my favourite one, tough.

My brother's an even more avid Breath of Fire fan than I am, so he actually gave Dragon Quarter a try an' told me it's a decent game... just not a good Breath of Fire, lol.

Breath of Fire III was my favorite, also, for the longest time. Now, I'm not so sure... it's a toss up between II & III.
