Nostalgia plays a heavy role in this review, for sure.

This game is incredibly important but very few folks have played it! My first RPG and probably the first console RPG of all time. I don't remember if I beat the game or not, maybe I got to the final battle, but I definitely played this a lot. It began my love of RPG's and RPG-like story-based games. It is annoying and grinding at times, and the graphics are nothing spectacular, but the introduction fo the menu-based mechanics and turn-based fighting was key to my enjoyment of the strategy of these types of games. Okay, the story isn't very clear or great (you're going to fight a dragon to get a piece of jewelry?), but like I said: revolutionary!

Plus, that name... DragonSTOMPER. Amazing.
