The Top 25 RPG Countdown officially resumes this week with a look at the best Dragon Quest of them all [download link here]!

Dragon Quest is a storied RPG series with many standout entries, but Dragon Quest 5 truly has it all: great characters, wonderful mechanics (monster collecting!), a tight battle system, and an epic sweep that even current generation RPGs struggle to match. This week we add it to the Top 25 RPG countdown! Plus: We discuss the big Destiny split, the Tales of Vesperia remaster, and more!
