As an avid RPG gamer, I am always on the lookout for great RPG games. In fact, I am always on the lookout that I even go back to RPG games of old.
You see, old RPG games, albeit dated and such, is still quite good. So good, in fact, that I feel that most modern RPG games just lack the substance in terms of the storytelling.
So today, I want to talk about one of the most popular RPG games for the NES platform. The Dragon Quest III Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System is the third installment but it is the first game chronologically.
The game is set in a fictional medieval world where knights and magicians exist. Although it is a fictional world, the world map, as well as some of the areas, represent that of the ones found around the world.
Places such as Romaly, Jipang, and Portoga are all references to Rome, Japan, and Portugal, respectively.
The story then turns to the hero called “Ortega”. Ortega bore a son and on his 16th birthday, the king summoned his son to the castle.
The king was blunt to say that the country needs Ortega’s son to defeat the evil “Baramos”, who is the main antagonist in the game.
In order to help the hero defeat Baramus, the main character will have the opportunity to recruit three other brave warriors to help him in his quest.
The Hero and his party are set around the world in order to defeat Baramos. Pivotal points in the game happen when the hero is able to acquire certain keys that are needed to unlock important rooms in dungeons.
After getting all of the necessary keys and defeating Baramos, Zoma, who happens to be Baramos’ master, is the mastermind behind everything. After wreaking havoc in the world, Zoma created a portal to the Dark World in which the hero and his party followed suit. The rest of the game unfolds as the hero finds ways to kill Zoma and put a stop to his evildoing for good.
The Dragon Quest III Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System just expands on the gameplay of the previous installments. You, the hero, is teamed up with three other party members to help you defeat Zoma.
In true Dragon Quest fashion, you will have the option to select a class of your choice. The Dragon Quest III Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System has a unique class system that allows you to learn certain abilities in a scholarly fashion.
What I mean by this is that whenever you choose a class, the character will learn all of the skills of that class. Once the skills are learned, it will be learned for good, giving you the option to choose another class for that character to master.
The Dragon Quest III Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System, albeit in an old game console, is still one of the best RPG games out there.
If you are a Dragon Quest fan and you want to know the classics, then definitely set some time to play the Dragon Quest III Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System.
