DQ remakes are always great.

DQ1 has been good since SFC version. These are very much fine. Of course, DQIII FC is fine but it's been 30 years since then. If you want a sample try DQ1-III  mobile versions which are on iphone/android as these are based on those.

They're much more accessible (gold/xp), but they're pretty much the same game.

So I didn't see the bit about how these are the ugliest mobile-ish remakes out there (the monsters are wowwwww). Kinda sucks that the choice is either play a really shitty looking version in English or none at all for most people.

I'm tempted to play the SNES JP remake of III instead now, but the portability of switch is nice.

I've never played those

i was not prepared for this shocking revelation

lol, I started DQ on PS2 with 8 and 5r and worked backwards with the 4/5/6/7 DS/3DS remakes. I was a late DQ bloomer.

Thatís not mobile-ish. That IS the mobile version ported. FYI It actually looks better on Switch. The mobile versions have lower res for some reason and things look squashed. Except IV-VI which are ports of the ds remake. The switch version has bigger details.

8 was my first DQ and Iíve played 1-3. I played SFC and GBC versions over 10 years ago. I guess it makes sense though as itís the first time those have been released on consoles in English since the NES.

With 1-3 you have a few options:

1. NES - donít recommend NES for DQ1 but 2-4 are great on it.

2. SFC - my favorite pick. I and II come bundled and III is stand alone.

3. GBC - fantastic remake for portable systems. Takes the features added to the SFC remakes and just blows it open. Once again I + II is a bundle and III is a stand alone.

4. Mobile, which is great but not SFC great.

5. Switch.

Honestly all are highly recommended. My favorite being III which imo is a must play jrpg classic. It has gone to influence numerous strategy rpgs, Final Fantas;etc.

TLDR: Dragon Quest fucking owns.

Well they did for Oninaki. Just had to pre-order from thier store.

And yeah for a lot of them you still have the Asian release which I was going to get for Oninaki if only because of the cover art. Too bad the game supposedly sucks. I don't have time for mediocre jrpgs.

No, Oninaki only got Japanese and Asian releases.  Ditto for I Am Setsuna- Lost Sphear was the lone Tokyo RPG Factory game that got an American physical release.

I mean ergonomic as in, comfortable to hold for a long time. Unlike modern controllers. Sure, SNES isn't as bad as the brick-like sparp-edged shape of the western NES controller, but it's nothing like a Pro Controller or Dualshock 4. If used for extended periods, flat retro controllers make your hands cramp and hurt your thumbs.

I donít have that problem. Never have. And snes is a better 2d controller any of those.

Personally Saturn pad is the best 2d controller ever made but itís not available on Switch so Iím settling for 2nd or 3rd best.

I just want a 2d controller and prefer snes pad for Mario. The indentions on Y/X makes it feel so smooth as you hold it down to run constantly in Mario.

Sounds to me like you have big hands. Snes pad has never made my hands hurt. I have small girl hands. :idont

No, my hands aren't very big. A cup-like shape just feels more like a relaxed hand and more natural than a flat brick.
The Saturn controller is my favorite 2D controller, it has the perfect thickness not to cause cramps or thumb joint pain even when used for many hours.

Never had cramps with the snes pad. I haven't used the saturn pad but for me the snes pad is among the best and most comfortable pads. I have small hands like Cindy though.

It doesn't have the melt in your hands quality that the newer pads have but it's so light that it doesn't really matter. Like using it one handed when you're only walking around in rpgs, that's not really comfortale with the newer pads.

Would go with 8Bitdo.  Get a SNES style pad with double-triggers and analog sticks so it works with everything and a Genesis-style pad and you're set.

8bitdo makes solid controllers, really like the feel of them and they have rumble/motion too if needed in a game. only downside is the analog placement if you plan to use them for non-snes/nes games. i prefer offset sticks if i have the option.

i also like the pro controller after the revision but that's a lot more expensive.

I like them because they make quality stuff for a cheaper price.  Plus, options- You can get like three different variations of the SNES pad, including one without analog sticks if that's your preference.

I know it's blasphemy, but I'd just get their Genesis-style pad and use that for everything old school.  It's so comfortable and the d-pad is amazing.  Plus it has shoulder buttons if needed.  Although it doesn't have select, so not sure if that would cause problems with some SNES games.

I hear their dpads wear out. I also read they have numerous issues with receivers. I trust nintendo with better make and honestly have no use for a 3d pad for now. I want something light without sticks. A true 2d pad. Since they are sold out I will use amazon credit to try an 8bitdo but when itís back in stock I will going nintendo.

They're fine.  You also may be confusing the Switch-compatible pads with the retro-pads-- no receivers are needed to use these versions on Switch.  You just pair them like regular controllers. 

The newest pad also allows for button re-mapping on the controller itself.  Pretty cool since that means you could play NES games on Switch with Y and B instead of being forced to used A and B.

Dude.

Whoever said BOTW doesnít have dungeons or puzzles is a liar. Despite the fact itís small, the lizard dungeon is a total head scratcher at points. The amount of negative hyperbole surrounding this game is hilarious. I know for a fact you didnít complete that dungeon without at least some disorientation.

Zelda tards are spergs and I say this as a Zelda tard.

BOTW is a top 3 Zelda game on par with LTTP and OoT.

I don't think anyone's ever said there's no puzzles... Every "dungeon/shrine" in BOTW looks the same.  The only variety is in the physics based puzzles, not the aesthetic designs at all.   Don't get me wrong, they're fun, and sometimes pretty challenging... especially the divine beasts... But once you're 80-90 shrines deep, they all start to look monotone and boring (and the same fucking music  :doge)    Personally, I miss the traditional, elemental based dungeons with it's own unique style and boss that you can tell truly belongs there...all with accompanying, unique tunes.  I'm pretty hopeful that the sequel will combine these differences and make something truly outstanding. 
BOTW is a top 3 Zelda game on par with LTTP and OoT.
I agree.  I know I'm more of the nitpick crowd for BOTW, but after playing it, you see what they can do to make it even better... as to why Aonuma even said he sees many ways on how to improve it (thus, an actual sequel).    It's actually a bit staggering that they even pulled this game off, even on the WiiU (version I played.. got one just for BOTW).  The game's a huge achievement for the series.  I can't wait to see what more they can do and I'll be actually excited to get a Switch for it when it releases, if I haven't gotten one already by then.

I don't know if they've made it better but my 8bitdo snes pad I used for snes classic had a hard d-pad that gave me problems playing Yoshi's Island compared to the soft d-pad on the official controllers. Like sometimes my down presses wouldn't come out. First time using an 8bitdo controller but it's made me kinda hesitant on purchasing more controllers from them in the future.
