I have no nostalgia here and am judging the game for what it is today—a dated and objectively not-so-fun video game. PAC man is still fun today, Mario bros is too, but this? As a DQ fan myself, it may seem like blasphemy, but the truth is the truth: random battles suck! They are an awful product of the time because of limitations with the technology. The battle system isn’t bad, it’s just kind of basic. The fact that the game is short makes it enjoyable and feel like an adventure, but the random battles really makes the game a chore to play a lot. I don’t understand how someone can just zone out playing this and “grinding”. To me, grinding is not fun. That’s not engaging gameplay, it’s just not. If I wanted to grind, I would grind something in real life like work or cleaning the house. I’m not trying to be rude or to disrespect DQ, I just want to be honest. DQ needs a remake, as do all the games with random battles so they can be special because they truly are with the iconic art style, music and legacy.
