I like this game a lot, a charming adventure with very fun turn-based combat. I'm glad it sold well in the west.

@StreaK: yes I was wrong, my comment is pretty old and I didn't really know how much FF sold in japan, but still Dragon Quest sells a little better

@StreaK FFVIII isn't the fastest selling JRPG of all time, that would be Pokemon Black/White for the DS.

@leyen: Huh??? FFVIII sold 3.63 million in Japan and this did 4.35 million. Not even close to double. It didn't even sell a million more. Plus, FFVIII is still the fastest-selling JRPG of all time. Did over 2.5 million in one week.
Also, FF sells a million throughout the entire world and DQ is only relevant in Japan, really.

Best selling DQ game ever at 5.74M, more than 500k more than DQVIII.
