Originally being rivals, until Square and Enix joined forces, Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy games both have a significant amount of numerals attached to them. GameZone compares the two to see which one comes on top.
Dragon Warrior > Final Fantasy by a landslide. That was the case until Enix America got shut down.
...Dragon Quest is great... but after you’ve played a few, there isn’t much incentive to play the rest. I’ve played all main DQ and FF games, and at the very least, FF keeps it consistently fresh... even if you don’t like the changes.
Overall the quality of DQ is higher but some individual FFs are better than individual DQs.
I think the gameplay is better on DQ but the story is better on FF. Well certain ones lol. I didn't care much for the DQ8 story.
I gotta say I've tried dragon quest a while ago, and it sure was a nice break from the final fantasy style. I like them both :)
Never played either of them. I was going to get the FF BETA though but couldn't be bothered installing it.
The thing I liked most about the Dragon Warrior games is that there was more sense of adventure and exploring. Its the little things in Dragon Warrior games that you dont see any more even in these newer rpg's that have more people and more money tied up in them. B3NW. You fail at being a gamer dude. Now go play your Call of Noobie.
not a fan of either. jus cant get into these kind of games cuz they move so slow
I prefer DQ. I had a really hard time getting into any of the FF games, but DQ dragged me right in. I think the characters (and certainly the humor) appeals to me more. And slimes really help. GZ #Skate3 #360
i hope to play dragon quest very soon. :] @kvazzy20
I find myself attached to more FF titles than DQ.
Come on, production value and story wih Final fantasy always trumped DQ. Dont get me wrong DQ were great games but no where near FF
I'm going to have to say FF over DQ...but it is all a matter of opinion. GZ - #Skate3
I thought DQ, never really evolved. Final Fantasy always adds a little extra each time
Never understood why they don’t give DQ the same production level as Final Fantasy
final fantasy >dragon quest
What's the best DQ game to start with? I've sadly ignored the series.
if u have ds play 9 and also some of the past ones like 3 4 and 5 are being re-released
9 isn't that great.the gameplays good and there's lots of content but the story's pretty lacking. Personally I think DQ 5 is the best one.
yea, definitely begin with either 4 or 5 on the DS.
I've never even played a DQ game, and don't know much about the series. I didn't realize it was comparable to FF. Sadly, I'll probably never find time to play one.
Dragonquest 8 >ff10,ff12,ff8,ff13.
all the way!!!
dragon quest 4,5,6 are considered the best ff 4,5,6 are considered the best ... coincidence ??? i think not i loved all 6
That's when they used to compete against each other, I would have liked it if Enix stayed independent.
I mostly agree with the FF's. Except V though. I'm sorry but I thought V was by FAR the worst one, and I always thought that was the majority of what people thought.
FFV is definitely the worst of the super nes games, but not the entire series. not sure if you meant the entire series or just the super nintendo games.
Dragon Quest is fairly better than Final Fantasy games. Why? IMO both are somewhat overrated, but DQ games give you that sense of exploration and adventure you don't see much in JRPGs anymore. They aren't complex nor need deep storylines, they're just old school-like RPGs and that's what I love about them.
"They aren't complex nor need deep storylines, they're just old school-like RPGs and that's what I love about them" Dragon Quest is DEEP.
Say that to DQ9. The only thing I hate about DQ games is Toriyama's artwork.
It's nice to see this comparison, but the issue is moot if you don't have a platform that one of the series runs on. GZ
FF is for grown ups, DQ is for kids. the end.
Is this a real comment?
I have never play DQ, but I'm guessing their both great franchises. So I guess I'll go with FF (for now). Nice Read.
There is no comparison!! Skate -`-`-`-`
Sorry but Squaresoft was to dam awesome...Enix not so much SquareEnix = a bad mix but KH2,FF12 and DQVIII turned out ok...
To me neither one is better than the other, they have evolved in such expressive ways.
I spent way more time than is healthy as a child playing both series.
Final Fantasy has a much larger place in my heart, but I love DQ too. DQVIII is astonishing.
Square > Enix
...Dragon Quest is severely lacking in that department.
Fallout>Oblivion. what am I of topic? Oups, sorry I don't play JRPG enough to judge, but I'd say FF had a more lasting impression on me.
