So which do you think is the best?

I would have to say 8 because its presentation was wonderful without sacrificing its gameplay.

I would say 3 and 5 take a somewhat close second. 3 for being a solid 8-bit rpg, 5 for being different.

I'll say 7 in an effort to build hype for that game...still no word on a localization for the 3DS version.

8 was my favorite... it also looked amazing as well but the gameplay was good old fashioned turn based RPG. Just the way I like it.

I love VII, but I love IV just a little bit more.
One of us. One of us. One of us.

Sentinals was one of the best ones.

IX is the best simply for the visible enemies and character customization (the ability to actually SEE the gear you're wearing)...

Dragon Quest 8 for me, though DQ5 is a close second.

Dragon Quest 9 got the most playtime :)

Not much of a fan of the series, but isn't IX basically the Persona/Rune Factory of the Dragon Quest franchise? basically a game that's radically different yet still retains its core roots to the extent that it's basically series rep up to that point?

Personally, i voted Chapters of the Chosen since its the only one i actually defeated, 5 is difficult as hell...still haven't killed Nimzo, and 6 was stuck at some island boss....eventually i beaten it, but then i just wandered about after befriending some shape shifter.....?

EDIT: Whilst on the topic of Rune Factory/Persona, Fire Emblem Awakening is probably edging to figurehead status, just because of talks of waifus and no permadeath, unless you want to be a maniac.
