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.

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.
