Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King
JRPGs That Still Need to Come to PC
If Final Fantasy is the king of JRPGs, then Dragon Quest is the duke. It doesn’t innovate as much as Square Enix’s flagship title, but it remains popular thanks to memorable characters, engrossing stories, and the art of Akira Toriyama. Arguably the franchise’s most popular entry is Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King. It introduced many gamers in the west to Dragon Quest, and it sold more copies than most other Dragon Quest games.
Dragon Quest is one of the few ongoing Square Enix franchises that has yet to be ported to computers, spin-offs notwithstanding. While not every Dragon Quest game is created equal, nobody can doubt Dragon Quest VIII’s lasting impression. Even if we don’t receive every Dragon Quest game for PC, a port of Dragon Quest VIII will satisfy most JRPG fans.
