    I've been wanting to start playing Dragon Quest games, but because I've never played one before, I don't know where I should start....

    I mean, I'd like to start on the DS, but if I need to play the games on other systems to get full understanding of who the characters are and what the story is, then I'll do that...

    So, where do I start?

    You can start with any of DQs since every one is a complete separate story (even though for example DQ 4-6 share somewhat similar element).

    My first DQ was VIII .

    Oh. Thanks.

    I was thinking it was kind of like Final Fantasy, I guess I was somewhat right about it.

    Now... To find out if my only remaining ROM source has any Dragon Quest games and doesn't redirect clicks of the download button back to the home page...... LOL

    Edit: Well shit. Looks like this was a wasted topic. The place I get ROMs from doesn't have any U Dragon Quest ROMs. Just J ROMs and Dragon Quest Monsters, which I'm not trying right now since I want to try main series titles first....

    Since you can start anywhere, just start with the new one.

    It'll keep you busy for a loong time, and it's quite good. The only downside is that you might be a little disappointed in IV and V, as they don't compare well -- and this isn't to say that they aren't good, it's just that IX is really good.

    Pretty much what regnad said. Personally I like the newest one most, mainly because its quite similar to Final Fantasy 3 and 4 on DS.. Your choice really, no need to play in any order.
