Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen

For me, the most satisfying parts of any role-playing game are the beginnings and the endings. There is something very exciting about embarking on an epic journey, and reaching the end of that epic journey is equally as satisfying a feeling. If there is a weakness to be found in the game, it is likely to be found in the middle of the game. It is here that the game can either follow the classic structure of rising action or lose focus and fall into an abyss of repetition. The quality of pacing in the middle parts of the game is often what differentiates great RPGs from mediocre ones.
