7+ hours into DQ VIII

Well, I just entered the South Continent and got the 4th character.  I am still impressed how good this game looks.  As I kid I dreamed about games that looked like this.  For all the people saying how the story is meh--like all DQ's, I found the story to be interesting/entertaining enough to pull me through the game.  While I do like the FF series and can't wait for FFXIII to come out, a return to a medieval setting is nice.  Ever since FF VII, I kept wondering when the series will go back to those roots and out of more Sci-Fi stuff (I suppose FFIX did).  I also think they did a good job with the voice acting--especially compared to FFX (the last FF game I played).  Well, off to grind some more.
