Classic, old-school RPG
Dragon Quest VIII is a great game with a neat, cute story and great combat. The battle system is straight out of 1992, but the extras that come along with the game are amazing. From the monster arena to the casinos to the alchemy system, there are a lot of things to do besides continue through the main storyline. The story in and of itself is great too and very addictive. The game's difficulty is pretty light. The battle system is easy to learn and if you do come upon any hard parts it just takes a little leveling up and couple new spells to gain the edge. The game is a great RPG that should be played by anyone that is a fan of the old-school style battle system and cutesy storylines.
