Suikoden. With Murayama writing and Ishikawa art. I'd ask for Miki Higashino on music again but she's retired now. :(
Oh then I know what you mean, spent $180 for Suikoden 1, and $250 for Suikoden 2. Luckily, I started on Suikoden 3 and continued on with 4 and 5 and got those when they were new at $60.
Sealed or complete? I’m not that snobby, yet, that I need sealed but complete is a bare minimum for me. I got lucky with S1 — found it at a thrift store before the practice of looking everything up on Ebay became prevalent — and S2 — buddy in college sold me both S2 and Disgaea 1 for $40 total. S3 I think I found at one of those unannounced Circuit City clearances where a bunch of games were $10 if you actually scanned them. S4 I believe was through FamilyVideo.com back when they has really nice deals on used games online. S5 has eluded me. Also, I’m strangely proud of you for forking out $250 for S2 — a fan of my own heart.
Yes, start with the first one, it is a charming game that isn't particularly long either and is excellent in its own right. Many will say the series peaks at the 2nd entry and while I think 2 is better than 1, I highly recommend playing 1 first for several reasons. I played the first 2 on Vita as well.
