I noticed a lot of Dragon Quest games are on sale on Amazon, and I was wondering which one would be the best choice?

Criteria:

-DS game, obviously
- Somewhat easy difficulty... Preferably very easy
- Puzzles are a plus
- I'm completely new to the series
- best story

Of the DS Dragon Quest games, which one would you say fits that criteria the most? I was looking at Dragon Quest V at the moment.

Get both IV and V while you still can.

V has the best story imo. Get that.

IV is fairly straightforward, and I personally think it's easier than V. I'd go with IV, but you might want to get all 3 before they disappear from retail.

AND KNOWING IS HALF THE BATTLE!!!

While IX is a good game, you obviously have not played any other DQ to have a thought like that.

9 < all in every aspect except graphics. The single player quest was hurt quite severely by the emphasis on multiplayer and sidequests. And each game card has only one save file, which is maddeningly dumb. If you want to replay the quest, you either have to erase all your work, including the possibly unique downloads and dungeon maps you found, or spend $35 on another copy.

Not a bad game, but nowhere near the best of the DQ series.

TC, I'd say either 4 or 5 are your best bets. 6 is actually fairly difficult by comparison, so save that one for last.

5 has the best story.

Though 9 is the easiest and has most post-game content.

Even so... 5 is a great experience. One of the most unique and best stories in a game ever.

V is good stuff. Though I also love 9. Of course, I think it's because of the side quest and post-game content. I love post-game content. That, and that DQVC is pretty addictive for those who like collections. The visitors also add some nice aspects to it. 9 is for content collectors, which isn't a bad thing. I've always been a Dungeon Hack/Loot person myself, so 9 satisfies in a big way. I also like the Celestial angle, though I know that alone doesn't make the best story. Just an entertaining one for me.
