Dragon Warrior Marathon

While Final Fantasy become my favorite role-playing series, it was Dragon Warrior (Dragon Quest) for the NES that hooked me on the console RPG.

Unlike Final Fantasy, I have not yet played all the games in the Dragon Warrior series.  I played the first one for the NES, but missed the NES sequels.  I played VII, but never got around to finishing it.  I fell in love with Dragon Quest VIII for the PS2 and was majorly bummed that they decided not to do any sequels for non-handheld systems.

The games in the main series that I will play during the marathon are simply titled Dragon Warrior or Dragon Quest I – IX.  The first four games were released for the NES, VII for the PSOne & VIII for the PS2.  The rest were either only originally released in Japan or for the Nintendo DS.  I’m not much of a fan of handheld gaming, but in order to play the whole series, it looks like i’ll need to pick up another DS.

I currently own Dragon Warrior VII & Dragon Quest VIII.  I will update the blog when I am ready to start purchasing the other games.
