Summary: Dragon Quest V. I love the DQ series and this being the first time V (and VI) made it to the states I was happy I bought it when I did as the price has only gone up in value. The game itself has charming graphics and story. You play through a lifetime, pick a wife and later even fight with you're kids.

Characters-The characters may not be as colorful as in Dragon Quest VIII, but they're really great in my opinion.

Summary: Here's the deal. I bought this game for the story. Following a character from year one to year ~30? Very compelling. But I stayed for the gameplay. I struggled a bit at first but at one point it just clicked. I can train my character to higher levels, and use the money gained from winning battles to get more powerful equipment which then makes my character even stronger? It sounds simple. But it is so addictive.
