Should I call the game by its proper name, Dragon Quest? Or should I go with the original title Dragon Warrior, which was used since the Dragon Quest trademark was owned by TSR at the time? In any case we’ve been talking a lot about Dragon Quest with trademark reveals, ESRB ratings and so forth recently.
Looking back Dragon Warrior on the Famicom seems simple, maybe even primitive by today’s class changing strategy RPGs. However, when it came out in North America Dragon Warrior was touted as a challenge. A fold out map and enemy chart were you companions on the quest to slay the Dragonlord. Have you beaten the original before?
Always remember to say no to evil overlords asking to join forces. They’re just waiting for a chance to backstab you.
