One of my favorite reviews is the Dragon Quest XI review by Tim Rogers for Kotaku. I must have watched it at least 4 times, not only because it's a fun review but because he also helped me see things in a different light. My first Dragon Quest was Dragon Quest 1 and that was 2 years ago not 32, so Dragon Quest XI was my first party-based Dragon Quest. He showed me that I should be using the "Tactics" menu, that I should be taking my time through the game and play about an hour or 2 a day, kinda like watching a daily TV show.
But I haven't yet experienced his response to anyone claiming that "Dragon Quest is too easy". He claims that there's fun to be had in fighting a boss underleveled. Given that the average player (myself included) grinding themselves to death by youtubing "DQ11 easy level 99" as soon as possible, I was wondering if anyone has experience with playing underleveled Dragon Quest and what's the general opinion about it. Do you agree with Tim or not?
Edit: In case someone never watched it, this is one of the timestamps where Tim Rogers talks about it https://youtu.be/4iTbUGItU0s?t=633 and another one somewhat relevant to his "grinding" assertion https://youtu.be/4iTbUGItU0s?t=1284 (I still don't know what he means by counting cards).
