Dragon Quest XI is fucking awesome

Recommended Posts

Ok, I know what you guys were talking about now... Shit got real, and the cutscene was fucking awesome and even though I still had the possibility in the back of my mind, it still kind of surprised me just how quick that all went down.  Fuck though.. that scene was badass.. and I loved how they handled the transition.  I saved on a different file so I could watch that shit again :whew: 

 

This is the best RPG of the generation right here man.  I LOVE this game! :wow2:

I'm not done it yet.. but there's definitely some twists (which depending on your familiarity with the series might seem more or less obvious) but again I'll used the word traditional.  The story isn't convoluted so that's a plus.  But a major event just happened in my game and I kinda didn't see one aspect of it coming.

 

When I'm done the game I'll give my thoughts on everything.

Keen to hear what you say. 

 

Have you by any chance played Persona 5 as a means of comparison?

I got the Platinum last week. It’s definitely the best Dragon Quest game and  in the top 3 JRPGs of the last decade, maybe last 2 decades.

I need to start this game. The shorter days are going to give me an excuse to sit and play games.

It does but it takes time to develop and time for you to appreciate it. I didn't care so much at first but I've grown to love the journey and characters. It's less melodramatic than let's say Final Fantasy but it has it's moments, and it helps that the dialogue and voice actors are excellent.

I want a DQVIII remaster after this. (I never finished it) But one that has some actual effort put it in, and a fast forward system a la FFXII Zodiac Age.

DQXI checks all the marks of a great old school JRPG. This is the closest RPG experience similar to FFIV I got in decades. It's an epic adventure and a mechanically sound RPG, well paced and has a great story.

 

Old school JRPG fans should not sleep on this.

Dragon Quest: Use flame-breath to burn village and people to ash; then go back to the cave in the Lonely Mountain to sleep, eat and rest. :kaz:

Wish it was on Xbox One or I could be playing the import to be honest.  Guess I'll play some yakuslit 0 right now to make up for it.

I just bought the import for $40. May be here in 1.5 weeks backordered. Please avoid spoilers. And i'll avoid hype. 

 

Gotta find a ps4 to play it on for a couple months. Fuck xbox 1

Yeah it’s a really solid game. I do think it loses some of its steam and momentum in the 2nd half though.

What? The later half is the best part.

There are some good story moments but the pacing and gameplay become less interesting.  

 

the sense of discovery and exploration becomes almost non existent. You’re no longer coming across new towns and areas and are instead just backtracking through all of the same ones.

True, but I like the world flipping on it's head and there's still some new locales. No new towns seems like a wasted opportunity though.

 

It just isn't an issue for me. The game is stronger in other aspects during the later half and I'm just totally hooked to it's gameplay now. I'm still far from finished, nor did it ever started to drag.
