I’ve never been a fan of turn based RPGs outside of Pokemon. Most JRPGs I’ve given a shot were so melodramatic and have nonsensical stories that try to be taken seriously that I’ve just never bothered with them. Never tried DQ but always liked the art style and music; gave the demo a shot and it hooked me right away. Been playing a good 20 hours now and loved it very minute, it completely avoids all the trappings of games like Final Fantasy that I hate. It’s just fun in every way, from gameplay to the art, characters and music, not to mention how impressive the Switch version is against the PS4/PC ones.
I think more people need to give the demo a go. Won’t sway everyone I’m sure but a JRPG is the last thing I ever thought would rank as one of my favourite games of the year.
