Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Dragon Quest series

10:00 PM on 03.23.2010 // Tom Fronczak

After yet another RPG series debate, we're growing ever closer to the actual epic tournament that will let your favorite RPGs battle to the death for the honor of being "the best RPG of all time." However, the RPG genre is one of the largest genres in the industry, and we still have a lot of work left to do before things start to really heat up! Last week we narrowed a trilogy down to just its best representative, and this week we do the same for an entire series. Here are the results from last week:

  • Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille zur Macht (22 votes) -- Winner!!
  • Xenosaga Episode III: Also sprach Zarathustra (12 votes)
  • Xenosaga Episode II: Jenseits von Gut und Böse (0 votes) -- Ouch!

Before moving on, I feel it's important to comment on Xenogears' status. Last week, even though I didn't include it in the debate, you guys and gamer girls still voted for it anyways. A lot. It actually received more votes than Xenosaga III. So to wet your appetite, I'll let you in on one of the brackets that you'll see in the finals. Xenosaga Episode I versus Xenogears will be one of the competitions you're asked to weigh in on, so if you haven't played one or both of these games yet, you have about a month or two before they're both back in the spotlight.

As for this week, we have a much larger selection of games to choose from. Out of the entire Dragon Quest series, which includes the earlier Dragon Warrior games and even the numerous spinoff games, which one game is so good that it deserves a spot in the tournament to fight on behalf of all the others that don't make the cut?

What Dragon Quest game should make it to the tournament brackets and why? What sets it apart from every other game in its series? Sell me on the idea! Get me stoked to see it compete in the tournament! Give it some serious thought, share your reasoning with all of us, and then check back next week to see how your game did!

Bonus Question: Which game in the series is your least favorite? Why?

I was happy to have never spoiled myself the final boss of Splatoon's campaign. That was one of the best boss fights ever and I absolutely love the credits track. So relaxing. [youtube][/youtube]

Today's kids will never know the struggle of putting an encyclopedia on top of an NES Max to auto-buy 99 potions before heading into Terra Cavern

Sometimes, on more dreary days, I make a smiley face with sliced-pickle eyes and bacon grin in my lunch-burger. It fills me up all the same, but I feel a warm sense of accomplishment, achievement and satisfaction on top of it.

When I was a lad, I loved this game something fierce. [img][/img] Anyone else ever play the tie in Small Soldiers games? Maybe it's nostalgia, but I remember them being not too bad.

Finally got my surface pro 3. Holy shit I love this little guy. And Windows 10 is better than I thought.
Putting more effort into iOS game review than African American history book report. This is not what Dr. King died for. Or maybe he did, I wouldn't know because I'm not doing the book report. Wha-hey!!

22/31 missions completed on Prototype, fun game with a ton of destruction but crashes on my desktop PC and barely runs on my dad's laptop. And it's distracting me from playing more Fallout 4. But hey, I can slice+disguise as tank commanders and that's fun
