What game did you

Recommended Posts

What game did you spend the most time on for single play through. Playing after "finishing" the game like in 9 where you can continue to do grottoes and what not doesnt count. Im asking which did you grind out levels, farm gold, or explore before seeing the games conclusion?

 

For me i'd have to say it was DQ3. I spent so many hours i can't being to calculate it into actual time spent.

 

DQ3 was the first game that sucked me into more than just game play The story to me was enthralling, I went to every area to talk to every person. I searched every area for all the monsters and to find me a nice metal babbles farming spot. I grinded all my team to 99. Though i didnt use all the classes just my 4 man team.

 

DQ3 is what made me buy part 4 made me frequent used game stores hoping to come across a copy of DQ2. Made me buy the remakes of 1,2, and 3 on game boy color. It made me wait in anticipation that part 5 was coming out cause god damn nintendo power had it on there to be released games.

 

Well as you can tell its what led me to be passionate about dragon quest, and brought me eventually to this site.

Main series: Dragon Warrior 7. The game itself was long enough, but then I maxed out the immigrant town, getting monster hearts, maxing out all of the classes. I also enjoyed playing in the casino and taming monsters :P

 

Spinoff: Dragon warrior monsters 2. Trying to ge Dark Drium and the Last Lord key ate up a lot of time. But then came making my personal favorite team: Pizzaro, LordDraco, Gemslime.

I'd have to say IX.

 

 

Outside of DQ, Skyrim.

Hmmmm, for me I'd say it was Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King. But only my first playthrough. I was 12 at the time and RPGs were new to me, so I was constantly getting lost. I wasted four hours just trying to find Red's Cabin after Medea got horse-napped. Then when I got a ship for the first time I spent hours just exploring everything until I finally found the plot again. XD The total time it took me to beat DQ VIII for the first time was about 90 hours.  

 

Nowadays it only takes me about forty tops. Dragon Quest IV and DQ V only took me about 45 hours the first time. But man oh man, Dragon Quest VI took me 72 hours! 72 hours! That's longer than Dragon Age Origins and Dragon Age 2 took me added together!  

 

Longest - Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King

Second longest - Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation

 

Currently I'm at 190 hours on my first copy of DQ IX but the main story took me about 50 hours so it still loses to DQ VI.  The other 140 hours spent in DQ IX was trying to find the correct grotto with that cat boss so I could finally have Aquila in my party.

 

As for other game serires... they usually end up disappointing me. Dragon Age Origins is only about forty hours, and DA 2 even less. Fable's a great game but once again its strike zone is the forty hour range (although Fable does offer post-game quests).

Definitely Dragon Quest VII.  That game is a monster in terms of content.

I don't usually play games for long periods of time unless there aren't a lot of good games out. In the case of Dragon Quest, including all the times I have ever started a new game, it has to be Dragon Quest IX at a little over 200 hours. Outside DQ, Pokemon Diamond at about 150 hours.

Wow im in the minority i suppose since i started with the original and the rest on the nes long before the internet and emulators or VII came out. But it reasssuring that the newer games are still turning out people who really appreciate and follow the series So being the minority at least so far isnt nearly so bad in the perspective

longest In terms of story: DQ8 (that game itself is considerably long) 80+ hours. i can't remember..

In terms of total: DQIX (well, whadd'ya expect?) 440 hours+

 

i thereby conclude DQIX is the longest game in terms of single playhtrough and post-game stuff XD

Defiantly DQ7. It's just a absolutely HUGE game, and finding all the Tiny medals is ridiculous.

I spent one heelllll of a long time playing DQIX... I think I finished at around 350 hours or so, just because there was so much to unlock. But cumulatively, I think that I've sunk more hours into Dragon Warrior IV than any other. My original NES cartridge was one of the best presents I ever got, and I can't tell you the number of hours that I ran around the bottom of the tower to the underworld looking for King Metal/6 Metal Babble fights. :) It was the only game I ever got my whole party to Level 99! (Taloon gains a LOT of HP at high levels, it's absolutely remarkable.)

DQVII. First playthrough logged in at 200+ hours (but I tried to get EVERYTHING, and I was just a kid really. That and at least ~30 hours have got to be times where I played until 6:00 in the morning and passed out before saving and turning off the PlayStation.) Current playthrough is at 108 hours, still going though. (Still trying to max out all classes, get all TinyMedals, all monsters for monster park, Immigrant town Casino version, bonus dungeons... while still playing the main story.)

DQV - Monster hunting.

 

Not going for complete game - DQVII. Took me over 110 hours the first time I played it.

Dq7-Now at 115 or 116 and in the middle of coastal... My PSP keeps freezing when fighting the the miniboss to get the glim moss, so I think I'll have to copy my save and play in ePSXe for a bit.

Easily DW VII. I believe my first play through was over 200 hours. However, like Wonderslime, cumulatively it would have to be DWIV, then probably DWII.

 

 

 

On a side note: Hi Wonderslime! Nice to see you again!
