I am a fan of jrpgs (Tales of, Final Fantasy, Persona, Ar Tonelico, Golden Sun) and wrppgs (bioware stuff, fable) however I did not like Dragon Quest VIII. It was too 'traditional' for me. I'm done with random battles and turn based combat unless they change things up and offer something new ala persona and ar tonelico.
Also the game was too hard and too slow paced for my liking. It had wonderful graphics, sound and voice acting but it just wasn't for me.
So it may sound silly to ask this question, but would I like Dragon Quest IX?
At first I thought 'of course I won't!' but I've been hearing good vibes from people who are new to DQ or new to jrpgs in general. Also people who liked DQ VIII generally (so I've heard) did not like DQ IX. So that made me think 'If I did not like DQ VIII - would I like IX?'. Make sense?
