11:44 am - Recordkeeping: Dragon Quest XI - Echoes of an Elusive Age COMPLETE
How do I even summarize this?

Dragon Quest is The JRPG Series. The original, from which all others came. It has changed and evolved significantly over the years, but it's always been basically Dragon Quest.

Dragon Quest XI then is The Most Modern Dragon Quest. It has the things you expect from a modern-day JRPG, it has a bright colorful world and a plot that isn't afraid to punch you in the emotions. You got your silent hero saving the day with a quirky cast of extremely likable characters, you got... well, it's a JRPG, man. I don't know. You either like this stuff or you don't.

I like it a lot. I loved this one, in fact, to the point where I stuck around 115-ish hours in for the postgame and then actually beat the For Real This Time final boss and finished the postgame, which is amazing and rare.

I never would've dreamed at the start of the year that I would've been playing a really good Dragon Quest here towards the end of it, but here we are. It was magical.
