Cyrus writes : "Dragon Quest VII: Eden no Senshitachi (Warriors of Eden) is an enhanced port of the original Dragon Warrior VII released back in 2001. It is well known for being one of the longest RPGs out there, filled with massive amounts of sub-plots and optional side content. A typical playthrough of Dragon Warrior VII can easily take over 100 hours (though thankfully this port has condensed things a great deal, while managing to take nothing away from the original experience).
The plot of Dragon Quest VII is a unique and interesting one. You take the role of a fisherman’s son, who lives with his family in the port town of Fishbel (located on a small island consisting of the town itself, the castle of Estard, and some ancient ruins). The mysterious thing is that this seems to be the only island in the entire world, as proven by the many fishing trips your father takes out to sea. However, before long, you and your friends discover a secret to the ruins; you find yourself in a chamber full of pedestals that seem to have incomplete maps on them… Upon placing a map shard and completing one of the pedestals you are transported to an unknown island in the past, and saving that land restores its presence in the present. So begins your massive quest in unsealing the islands and continents of the past, work out why and how this happened, and perhaps figure out why your home island was the only place to avoid such a fate".
