Which dragon quest game for Ds should I get?

ALL of them, I'm not kidding. They are some of the best RPGs ever. But start with 9. It will probably make you appreciate the series more.

IX is the weakest of the main nine, IMO, but it's a pretty good entry-level DQ (though you might expect some of what makes IX the black sheep to be in other titles). My favorite of the DS main series titles is probably V.


This. I can't believe it's getting so many recommendations. Though I gotta say, X looks like it'll be even weaker.

if you think 9 is the weakest, you haven't played the first 3 games.

I've completed the first three, actually. III is my favorite DQ.

9 is modeled after 3.

Funny, I felt 3 was one of the best in the series.

i didnt say its bad, i like it too, IMO there's no bad DQ, they are all amazing. but i said it is weak in terms of content, for example you create the characters and they have no background stories, other than the main character.
