Dragon Quest VII is too long, but that's OK13 Nov 2016 Gaming 3ds backlog jrpg dragonquest
Going back to it, I can see this is a quintessential JRPG from an age when longer meant better. Unfortunately, my play style doesn’t match this anymore… It seems I prefer shorter RPGs, puzzle games, and racing games these days. I guess this matches the time I can invest into games!
There hasn’t been an story arc I haven’t liked so far. It’s just that I’m only a third into the game… I picked it up and played another two or so islands for a few hours, then I had to go hunting for my tablets to progress even though I’d finished the story for those islands.
Such a great game deserves to be beaten so it’s going back on the shelf until I have some time to focus on it (when there are less games on my backlog.)
Oh to be a teenager again!
