  1. Yeah I feel you on that one. It gets harder as you get older. I struggle to finish over half of my games even once and most of them aren't massive RPGs lol. Between work, kids, and things around the house it's hard to find the time and when I do I'm usually tired and would rather just watch something on YouTube or Netflix than sit down and play something that requires effort lol. I think I'd be content with just playing games I have a real attachment with going forward. Like Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, and Super Mario. I pretty much given up on RPGs in general because of the time invest
  2. I recall that now that you mention it. Still prior to this I don't think he's ever gone into much detail regarding Dragon Warrior/Quest. I don't think he was much of a RPG guy. He mentions Final Fantasy 6 more than anything (and often calling it Final Fantasy 3 still lol) and occasionally says something about the other Squaresoft SNES games (Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Super Mario RPG) or Earthbound. Seems like Castlevania, Mega Man, Contra, TMNT, and Ninja Gaiden where the non-Nintendo games he seems the most familiar with. To be fair those were like the main NES games for a most peo
  3. I watched this last night. I was surprised to see James do a DQ video since he never really commented on DQ before (that I can recall anyway) but it was fun to watch. It was cool to see the website get a little love in the video as well. I like a lot of his non-AJVN stuff. It’s a bit funny that Angry Video Game Nerd made him famous but films, not games, are his true passion. He doesn’t seem to care much for modern games and just seems to care for the games of his youth which is something I can relate to more and more.
  4. Oh yeah I totally agree. Each version feels like a different experience. I have fond memories of the PS1 version and the visuals on that version have a very nostalgic quality for me so it’s my favorite version between the two. But the 3DS version is easier to play. The QoL improvements are really helpful to help the game’s pacing. Both versions are fantastic games though. I just have a deep fondness of the original just like the NES versions of DQ1-4 and FF 1-3 are more special to me over and their various (and I mean various lol) remakes and releases.
  5. I'm (finally) getting around to playing the 3DS version right now. I'm almost at the 40 hour mark and I am really happy for the most part. The PS1 version is an amazing experience and I've managed to slog through it two or three times over the years but man it's probably the worst-paced JRPG I have ever played. As much as I love DQ I still feel it's biggest fault is the pacing is just terrible. Starting with DQ 6 the games just feel overly long and you really have to be committed to see them through to the end (and DQ 7 is the most extreme example of this). Compare that to FF which are ge
  6. Yeah that always makes me feel better lol. I’m playing the PS2 version right now and I think I’ll go with Nera just for a change of pace. I do really like how different all three are. Each potential wife is unique and has her own personality traits. I still love Debora because she is absolutely hilarious. Bianca is sweet and Nera can get suggestive. All three are awesome in my book. The wives are one of the reasons why DQ 5 remains my overall favorite DQ and one of my top three JRPGs. Seeing Bianca and Nera in DQ Heroes was awesome. Wish Debora had showed up to complete th
  7. I think it’s going to be a mix of both. Mobile is too big to pass up so there’s also going to be a focus there. I wish they would go with more paid apps though. After sinking God knows how much money into Final Fantasy Record Keepers and Dragon Age Heroes (pretty sure that was the time) I have completely sworn off “gacha” games. They are just too shallow of an experience and a waste of money. I’ll gladly pay $20-30 for high quality ports/remakes with none of that mobile garbage in it but getting back on topic... I don’t think we have anything to worry about when it comes to spin-offs
  8. I like Debora the best. She is hilarious and I think has the best character growth with the hero. I like how over time she changes and begins to truly love the hero and becomes respectful instead of being a spoiled brat. There’s a lot of good moments with her. She is by far the best choice for the DS/mobile version. I go with Bianca while playing the SNES or PS2 version. She seems like the “canon” choice since they were so close as kids. I always feel bad for Nera though. It’s hard to break her heart but you gotta do what you gotta do.
  9. I am thankful for the mobile versions as well. I have played DQ 1-6 and 8 at least two times each on my iPhone/iPad. I would buy DQ 7 the second it even though I have my 3DS version. It’s just convenient having them on my phone and not needing to bring a second device. I do wish DQ 1-3 had cloud saves though. I typically play on my iPad at home because it’s more comfortable compared to my iPhone (a little cramped because of the forced portrait mode). With 4-6 and 8 it’s easy to play on my phone away from the house and transfer the save to the iPad when I get home and vice-versa.
  10. Oh nice I didn't miss the boat then lol. I don't know how much Enix of America would know about Dragon Quest 5 but I'm sure it had to be in some sort of planning I would imagine. It launched in Japan in March 2004. The Dragon Quest 4 PS1 remake was November 2001. That's only a two and a half year gap. I know we didn't get DW 4 PS1 because of issues beyond Enix of America's control but I always wondered if we would have gotten a Dragon Warrior 5 if Enix of America had remained it's own thing. I mean it's something that we can't really answer so I guess it's pointless to ponder. A
  11. I probably answered already because this topic is over a decade old now but Dragon Warrior 1 was my first experience with the game. I played it in 1998. I was talking with one of my friends in high school about Final Fantasy 7 in January of 1998. I had just beaten it and I was telling him what I thought about it and my love for the series (having played FF 1, FF 4, FF 6, FF 7, and all the "spin-offs" like Mystic Quest, FF Legends 1-3, and FF Adventure). He told me that Final Fantasy sounded a lot like Dragon Warrior and that I should play them. He lent me his copy of Dragon Warrior 1 and
  12. Dragon Quest 9 is my least favorite as well. 2010 was a disappointing year for me as a Square-Enix fan coming off both Final Fantasy 13 and Dragon Quest 9, which happen to be my least favorite games in each of the franchises (and yes I am saying I like Final Fantasy 2 and Dragon Quest 2 more than both of them LOL). I still like both but they were the first FF and DQ games that left me underwhelmed at the end of the day (as far as main series anyway). Dragon Quest 7 can be a slog to get through, especially in the beginning, but man once everything starts to fall into place it feels like it r
  13. Aw man I wish I would have checked back sooner as I would have liked to participate (I'm a single parent of two daughters and I work full-time so I don't play games as much as I used to and don't visit as much as I used to). I absolutely loved the old Enix forums. To this day it remains my favorite time on the internet. The wait for Dragon Warrior 7 was painful lol. It was such a great time to see the Dragon Warrior brand revitalized in the West with the Game Boy Color remakes, the DQ Monsters titles getting released, and the anticipation for Dragon Warrior 7. I would like to know wha
  14. I’m getting rather attached to how they look the more I play DQ 2. I like the way the game looks and plays on my Switch Lite. I don’t think I’ll ever touch the mobile versions of 1-3 again lol. I’ll probably delete them off my phone now. I still like the way the NES and the SNES versions look the best (NES for nostalgia and SNES for 16bit goodness). I installed those versions on my NES Classic and SNES Classic respectively for when I feel like a nostalgia trip but generally speaking I’ll be playing these versions mainly. At least for DQ 2 and 3. I don’t really like playing DQ 1
  15. Like I said it’s pretty jarring but it’s still fun to play. I think the mobile versions looked better but honestly I think the best versions of DQ 1-3 are the SNES remakes. I went ahead an bit the bullet on DQ 1 and 3 during lunch so I got them all now. I haven’t played the original trilogy since they first came out for mobile so it will be nice to revisit them again. At least this time they will have actual buttons lol.
