    If I had to give a very rough summary of the difference between the series:

    (Modern) FF has a world, but you are exploring the characters.

    DQ has characters, but you are exploring the world.

    I played through most of the original version. I still have my file locked there in time. I do plan on getting this Friday because of all the improvements they made and it just looks so dang fun. Plus, for whatever reason, when Dragon Quest games are handheld I really don't mind the grind all of them have you do. I actually find it oddly relaxing. It was fun to progress this game back in the day, and this time I do plan on completing the journey!

    I actually preordered this. Even though I'm mad as hell they've removed the live orchestra soundtrack from the Western release.

    I'm having fun so far! I'm still not sure about the soundtrack... It sounds orchestrated but maybe I'm wrong? Really the only gripe I have is that the font used in the game is so ugly. Who picked that? Why not something sans-serif?

    Nope, it's synth. They don't sound too bad, but the difference is very jarring if you've listened a lot to the actual orchestral soundtrack. I think the sound bits for the strings are the worst.

    I have it too, by the way, and I am so itching to play but don't have enough time for that now

    I've been having fun. It seems the pacing has improved a bit, though I know the game will become more grindy (SPOILER)when classes are introduced. I sort of overdid it when I played the original, so I might ease off it and only stop and grind if I find myself having trouble. The temptation to (SPOILER)unlock those awesome classes by mastering others is just too much for me!

    I put about 10 hours in so far. Forgot how fun it is to unravel the various mystery scenarios the game throws at you. The general atmosphere of the game is really cool, too.

    Not to far into it yet, but dear god the characters are annoying in this one. O_O

    Holy trout am I the only person who gets the feeling your parents in this game don't like you very much? I mean, they clearly love you, but they don't like you. Get what I mean?

    To be entirely honest no one in this game is all that likable.

    Idk, I kinda like the main kids so far because they actually behave like real-life immature teens for once. And honestly, considering how much everyone is complaining about them and constantly berating them, I really sympathize with them. So props to Yuji Horii for actually faithfully replicating the teen experience!

    Yeah, I have no problem with the kids. Dragon Quest games have never been about the characters for me, anyway. It's more about the larger world. The only exception to this was Dragon Quest VIII because they actually focused on the characters for a change, and even then the characterization isn't as deep as other RPGs.

    ...Well that got seriously smurfed up real quick. O_O (Ellie, though I wont' say more so it won't spoil for anyone not this far.)

    Yeah, VII might be the darkest entry surprisingly enough.
