Hi guys! Well, seeing the Roleplaying forum this empty is a bit depressing, to be honest. So, I decided to create this topic to liven it up a bit.
Dragon Quest is one of my favorite RPG series of all time. The average game difficulty is above-average, which is good if you like a challenge. It has just the right dose of comedy to soften up the otherwise serious nature of the game (hero fighting against great evil).
I've played 3, 4 and 8, and am planning to get 5 at some point soon.
While we're on the subject though, I've played Dragon Warrior (back when Dragon Quest was Dragon Warrior due to copyright issues) Monsters 2 and DQM Joker as well.
I didn't like Joker too much to be honest. If you have a Game Boy Color or Game Boy Advance you should trying find a copy of that older game and playing it. In my opinion, it's even better than Joker, since the amount of worlds you can go to to find monsters is essentially infinite (after you beat the game you can keep exploring worlds, as long as you keep finding Magic Keys for them).
