Last month, Square Enix asked Japanese fans to vote
on their favorite Dragon Quest
game. Dragon Quest IX
on DS took the honors, despite early backlashes
about the Sandy/Stella character. Fans also voted on their favorite creature from the series, which we don't even need to name, do we?
Fans chose Dragon Quest III
's "Hero" as their favorite character. Interestingly, no DQIX
character appears in the list of top 10 characters! That makes some sense, considering the party is player-created in that game.
