Didn't look at the video yet, but I'm sure as many people will point out. DQ didn't start RPGs. Though it was the cause for the huge popularity of JRPGs and Console RPGs.

That's exactly what the video covers.

 

(Pretty good so far!)

...and that's why I said 'I haven't watched the video yet'. But the person who stated the thread made it sound like he thought DQ started RPGs.

I'm not trying to be mean or overly smart, but just informing him. Because I know many people do think DQ started RPGs.

A lot of the material covered in the vids I already know, but it's definitely well put together. I'm quite curious to check out what he has to say about the specific games in his follow-up.

Enjoyed this a great deal. He did pronounce 'wank' as 'wonk' at one point, which was odd. Then again it can happen if you only ever see a word written down. Also Yuji Horii looks like a cool dude in his younger Yakuza form.

I actually stumbled upon the videos a bit ago without noticing that there was already links on here :P

 

The guy did a really good job covering the topic. And while i have heard that DQ was inspired by Ultima, I never really heard of Wizardry before. And i love that he mentioned the rumor of "DQ is only legally allowed to be released on a sunday".
