Raised in a house with a retro gaming environment and with exposure to Dragon Quest games both past and present, my grade school aged son has gotten into Dragon Quest as well. As a video game enthusiast with a love for Dragon Quest that's spanned over a period of 30 years, I'd like to present this talk between father and son that spans two generations of Dragon Quest!
I was born in 1973, and my first encounter with Dragon Quest was as a middle school student. I found out about it through the pages of weekly Shounen Jump, and played all of the games through XI when they came out. My 12 year old son was born in 2006, and his first encounter with Dragon Quest was in his third year of grade school. His first game in the series was the same copy of the Famicom version of DQ II that I played back in the day.
