"Take Care And Tempt Not The Fates", a Dragon Warrior animated comic by Zac Gorman (click for larger image).
How many times have I explored too far off course, only to stumble upon enemies my under-leveled character had no business making eye contact with, much less crossing swords with? It’s happened to me in so many Dragon Quests, Final Fantasies, and likely a dozen other RPGs.
Even in Guadia Quest, there were a couple of moments when I accidentally ran into GameGuadias unprepared, and had my entire party’s faces rocked off.

I remember Dragon Quest selling so well that the owner of a toy shop in my neighborhood started bundling it with other games to get rid of them — which was against the law, so he got arrested.

Naoyuki, a product manager for an unnamed Japanese game company, remembering his Dragon Quest youth for GamesTM's “Famicom Memories” feature (issue #100). Imagine if you couldn’t buy Dragon Quest IX without first purchasing a copy of Petz Fantasy: Moonlight Magic!

Also imagine the conversations this shopkeeper must’ve had with his cellmates in the clink:

"What are you in for?"

"Murder, kidnapping, you name it. You?"

"Making kids buy Transformers: Convoy no Nazo if they wanted to play Dragon Quest.”

"… You motherfucker."
