    Now it's time to decide.
    This is one helluva epic match up.
    One tough question.

    WHICH SERIES REMAKES ARE BETTER?

    Vote or dine in hell. [​IMG]

    Both series' remakes are mediocre. Rehashes are bad, m'kay? [​IMG]
    FF remakes > DQ remakes by just a tiny bit, because I prefer my DQs on the NES and GB.

    I only enjoy the FF IV remake, FF III was a little bit boring. DQIV was really simple, but damn! The game force you to end it. However DQV has a deep plot, so is better. I don't know much about DQVI.

    Ok, opinions aside, who the hell voted for DQ6? It's not out and we know NOTHING about it. And why even put it as an option. No offense, but that's kind of weird.

    I think the Square Enix ones have been way better than the DQ ones. FFIV was really good, it had some of the best DS graphics I have ever seen.

    Dragon Quest IS made by Square Enix. Rather, the Enix division of the company.

    Final Fantasy remakes, as it's quite obvious that squeenix put more effort and love into the FF re-makes, while the DQ re-makes looks like they ripped the graphics, whipped out a cheapass 2D engine slapped in the various texts and shouted: SHIP IT NOW! BY GOD! AND LET THE BUCKZORZ ROLL ON IN!

    That said, I've yet to play an DQ (1-3, 4, 7, and 8) that I found to be superior to the FF games (I-X, & XII). They're basically very similar in mechanics in many cases, keeping a nice flow of levelup goodies, yet absolutely none of the DQ stories have ever grabbed me, while one or two of the FF's have... (II & IX(with a heavy helping of the I like the return of the job mechanics...))

    As to best DQ? I just voted for 5 from prior experience, and re-inforcement of exactly how dull and tedious IV is... (In most RPGs the low levels are the funnest to play, yet DQIV makes them seem like a never-ending chore in the circle of hell that contains incessant low-level grinding with a dull and uninspired storyline. OTOH have DQI-III on the GBC was great, as they were one of the very few even remotely close to a modern RPG available on a handheld for a long time... also kind of like Pokemon for the same reason, and the Shin Megami Tensei game, Demon Slayer: Revelations(?))

    I won't lie to you all, I like DQ more than FF. The gameplay is a lot more fun, and the music is really great to listen to. Dragon Quest invites me a lot more somehow. However, I lost interest in DQIV before advancing past the first town. Yes, it just bored me that much. I prefer to play the RTS Final Fantasy games still, as Strategy is one of my favorite genre of games.

    Final Fantasy III and IV, with all the endless grinding and getting raped in 1-2 hits turned me off. The 3D graphics are average for a DS game, and the music is that classic Final fantasy music. Dragon Quest is just a lot more fun to play for me.

    What do you think is best remake series from Square-Enix?

    Dragon Quest.

    Which is the best of the FFs?

    Final Fantasy III DS (I hated FF4 on the Snes, and then I hated it on the Ps1 and GBA, so I still loath it on the DS. =D )

    Which is the best of the DQs?

    I beat DQ4, but only just started 5, so I can't really say.

    Most people will vote for FFIV because of the graphics, but imo Dragon Quest V wins cause it has a better storyline ^.^ (+1 for the monster taming)

    There needs to be a Final Fantasy 5 and 6 remake. And if they ever do something crazy like remaking 7 on the DS, then hell would freeze over.

    I'd say the story lines are both equal. Classic Refined Graphics vs Chibi 3D is basically the battle
