Dragon Warrior NES Review - Slick

by 8 Bit Junkie on Friday, June 9, 2006
I will always love Dragon Warrior/Quest. Although this game is limited compared to it's sequels, it has a certain charm and charisma that keeps drawing me back.

My favorite part of the whole game was after your rescue Gwaelin.

You talk to her and she goes,

"Dost thou love me?"

Your option is A: for Yes, and B: for No
If you select B: she goes,

"But thou must."

If you select 'A' she says,

"I'm so happy"

I kept selecting the 'B' button over and over.. she wouldn't let up.. I mean talk about demanding. LOL :D So I caved and said yes. This women can't take a hint or what. HAHA

I also like at the end of this when your at the Dragon Lord, he gives you an option to join him. You select yes, and your game's over. LOL Though it was a funny option to put in, as it's purpose is mearly to make you have to reset and head back there. :D

Good game, fight music drove me nuts after awhile though. I mean you walk a few steps.. fight scene starts.. you fight the enemy, and win. The overworld music plays. You take a few steps more, then the battle starts again. Just kinda annoyed me after awhile. Other then that, this is a masterpiece even though it's fairly simple and linear.
