That Toriyama art style will never get old
Aboput the game, saw everywhere on the internet III rd ep and IV are the best in 2D series. Is that true or i can give this one a shot ? (I never played any of DQ games in 2D. I want to start with the best, thanks)

If you want to start with the best, DQII probably isn't the place to start. Wait for DQIII, or pick up DQIV, or start with DQI and work through DQII while you wait for DQIII.

My favorite is DQV but that's going to be a little while longer.

Im really happy that these classics arent as high-tier priced as the FF titles.

I'm interested to see what they do with DQ3. DQ1 was free, then 300 yen, which they converted to $2.99. DQ2 was 500 yen, converted to $4.99, it seems.

DQ3 is 1200 yen, but I just can't see them charging $11.99 for it outside Japan. I mean, the game is worth more than double DQ2 in my opinion, but I've seen enough DQ sales numbers over the years to know my opinion doesn't fit reality that well in the West, haha.

Ok. I have DQ8 on my phone but haven't started it yet. I've never played a DQ game. I was more of a FF guy back in the day. Should I just start with the first DQ or play DQ8 because I already have it installed?
