Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Dragon Quest series

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Dragon Quest series photo



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?

Review: Pillars of Eternity

Pillars of Eternity is a sort of game which appeared unlikely to exist again in any meaningful way. Isometric, party-based role-playing games certainly seemed like the sort of thing people made, "back in the day," something t...more
