Not yet. I have beaten DQ, DQII, DQIII, DQIV, DQVII, and DQIX. After a long break, I will probably play through the DQIV remake. (I didn't really appreciate the series when I beat it almost 17 years ago, and I think I will enjoy it much more now.) After that, I will take on either DQV or DQVIII. I have read that those are the best in the series, and I am really looking forward to them, particularly DQVIII.

Also, I agree that DQVII is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. That is, the game is too long and life is too short for you to play through it twice! :lol:

Nothing major, just when I was searching for quest lists and such to try and make sure I tagged everything I did see the occasional thread pop up questioning where the good white guys were or similar (GameFAQs I think). Seemed like a very small minority of people though.

I'm not sure what this says about me, given that I've beaten the PSX version, and figure I'll eventually get back to the game... after Zelda, which may suck up 100 hours of my time as well. Oy vey.

Great description, and congratulations on finishing such a gargantuan JRPG classic (well, remade classic that is). Definitely agree there's some serious bang for your buck with DQVII.

Dragon Quest IV (DS) is fantastic, and Dragon Quest VIII (PS2) is phenomenal. You've saved the best for last, willingly or no. After you've had some rest from the series, it'll eventually be fun to read your opinions of these two when you review them.

Yeah, it's basically that group of people who get really bent out of shape when their heterosexual white maleness is not being catered to. They really got bent out of shape about Horizon Zero Dawn.

I know nothing of modern games or the disaster that is "gaming culture" but wouldn't these dudes want attractive heroic women in their games?

It's like the complaints about "fake geek girls" and whatnot. "I went to this convention the other week and there were too many good-looking nerdy women dammit!!!"

Oh, those poor little snowflakes. Now that Horizon Zero Dawn has been released, how will they ever find another action game to play as a white hetero male lead when they have only 99.9% of all other action games to choose from?

This is a road you don't want to go down. It makes zero sense and the more you try to figure it out the more baffled and pissed off you'll become.

I hear this term a lot in regards to women and sci-fi, too. Clearly the people who say it have no grasp of the history of the genre they profess to love.

I don't suffer from white male guilt or whatever, but I am damn sure tired of this protagonist aesthetic:

Give me more strong black women as my leads. I enjoyed that in Urban Chaos and Assassin's Creed III: Liberation.
