Speaking of the original Dragon Quest ...

If I were filthy rich, I'd whip out my Platinum AmEx card and use it to purchase a red Famicom Twin and the following, still-sealed copy of the original Dragon Quest. (Isn't that cover art awesome?)


Sure, I could save myself about $180 if I bought a used copy of said Famicom game (like this one) instead, but in this imaginary situation I'd be filthy rich, so who cares?

It is, isn't it? I actually like the North American art (see me previous post), too, but I think the Japanese one is better.

I actually think I like the US art better, but maybe that's just because I grew up with it. Either way, the game inside is great, despite being sort of enigmatic.

They're both great, Justin. And like you said, the game underneath the cover is great, despite some flaws. Speaking of which, I really need to find one of those NP strategy guides...
