Jen Bosier of VGW: "There are certain games we play as children and teens that will stick with us forever. Be it a character or game mechanic, we will always look lovingly upon said game and any games that strike a similar chord. For me, one such game was Shingen the Ruler. My mom picked up the cartridge for $8 at a garage sale. Unfortunately, the game seldom makes any top-ten or classic lists, but it permanently cemented a love of the Japanese feudal period in me."
