It most certainly should be. In August, we passed the twenty-year anniversary of Dragon Warrior in North America, and many of us are still loyal to what was essentially the very first RPG for almost everyone out there. While a lot of people got their RPG starts with Final Fantasy, released in North America for the first time two years later, the fundamentals started with Dragon Quest 1.
You star as our Hero, set out on a journey of classic fantasia-- saving the Princess, slaying the Dragon (Lord), and saving the world. Yes, the very well-being of the world around you sits within your hands. What you do with it will make or break the world. Shall you return the world to the Light of the Goddess, or fall Prey to Dragon Lord's evil plans? The choice is yours in this epic journey filled with humans, monsters, and slimes.
Dragon Warrior was the original piece in what has become a largely accepted, and world wide phenom in the video game industry today. Though it harnessed no epically high numbers with its original debut, the countless recaches that have been produced ever sense have renewed the love of the series in old fans, and sparked new fans alike.
While Dragon Warrior's graphics are supremely subpar to today's standard, it is without question that the gameplay quickly outweighs the graphics and sucks players deep into a world of fantasy. Soon, the story and gameplay will place graphics into a non-factor stack, as you become hopelessly devoted to the one and only Dragon Warrior (quest) franchise!
On first day that DQ1 was released, the popularity was small and sales was low, but as time went by, 1 got many fans gradually though that was not equal to the series after 2.
The key on the process that DQ was made was what different persons took charge of each game making categories, for instance, game music was Koichi Sugiyama who was 70's pro folk musician as Garo, scenario is Yuji Horii and the monster design was Akira Toriyama who have gained many animation fans on 80's already. By the process that each professional makers took charge of each genres, the game gained more splendid charms that we have never had experience.
Though the story that a hero began his journey to battle with Ryuou(Dragon King),save a princess was very simple, for the sake of the simpleness, we could enter to the unique chivalry story and music world like Baroque age.Boys who had pure minds, never knew dirt real society were tempted by the simpleness and Baroqueness.
Even now, our Japanese adults can not remembered pure boys age without DQ1.
I'm sorry that can not write well English.
The controls are the easiest to tell and learn, the controls are the following:
A button is the basic action it does everything, the player press A to bring up a menu of commands. In a fight it comes up automaticly.
B button cancels a command.
Start pauses the game.
Use the control pad to move the character.
Select does nothing.
This is a really fun game and I would recommend this game to people who still have a NES(Nintendo Entertianment System).
Without realizing that this game was significantly different than the Super Mario Brothers and Contra I was playing, I figured I'd do my best to storm through this game in an evening. It wasn't long before I realized this game would control a good portion of my spare time for the near future.
After playing all the Final Fantasy games, the later Dragon Warrior games (including the recent and wonderful Dragon Quest VIII), and others, this game still has a soft spot in my heart. With only one real twist (in the final battle with the Dragonlord), the plot might seem simple compared to modern games...but I remember feeling the desperation of the King and villagers as they inquired about my progress.
This game is the perfect introduction to RPGs for newbies and those that may have missed out on the video game scene but want to understand what it's all about. It's simple to learn, but challenging to master. By all means, pick up this game for NES, or the compilation for GBA.

This game is the most fun I've had in years. Sad, but true.Published 6 months ago by Hillary Stonemetz
Fun classic game that came originally free with a Nintendo Power subscription. Yes it's grindy, but the music is catchy and for a game made in the mid 80's, still plays well.Published 11 months ago by Modem
i'm not sure what "tested" means to them, but this game needed extensive cleaning, which isn't that difficult. Now it works just finePublished 13 months ago by kevin salvi
