I'm looking for any recommendations for a fantasy (it's got to be fantasy) based wargame that emulates or is very similar to the old console video games like Warsong for the Saga Genesis of Final Fantasy Tactics for the Super Nintendo. Anyone know of a board game that matches that criteria?

Mordheim: City of the Damned or Necromunda would be the closest thing that I can think of.

Both games involve small groups (Less than 10 characters per side is typical, IIRC) that can gain experience and develop their skills and abilities between a series of scenarios.

Maybe, just maybe Titan could scratch (part of) that itch.

I don't recall FFT being released on Super Nintendo. That being said, I felt that the grid based combat of Descent: Journeys in the Dark was very similar to FFT with the exception of height being taken into consideration. I also felt that Descent is too long and requires too much effort when I could just play a strategy RPG video game instead which would also have story elements.

Titan definitely has a feel along those lines, but it's more Ogre Battle than FFT or Warsong. The way monsters are recruited along a branching path is very much like both those games though.

Warcraft (not to be confused with WoW or the Adventure Game) WITH it's expansion, does a good job of giving you different kinds of units let by a hero with unique abilities.

I would say Heroscape Master Set: Rise of the Valkyrie is good for FFT reminiscing. It even has 3-D terrain! Descent: Journeys in the Dark is also good, but Heroscape really plays like an affordable minis game (which is what FFT plays like).
