This is the first of many opinion pieces on the Dragon Quest series. I decided to undertake playing the main series except X. I will specify which version I played of each one. I decided to do this because it has been a series I have always been interested in and curious about. As someone that watches anime, I have seen so many references of it and also I have always heard that it was the template for JRPGs after it was made. That alone is enough to make me interested. Now that I have that out of the way, I will share my thoughts on this game.
