Forums - Gaming Discussion - Has anyone here played both Dragon Quest XI and Tales of Vesperia?...which one do you prefer?

It depends on the area of the game we are talking about.

Story (Including characters): Vesperia > DQXI

Gameplay: DQXI > Vesperia (mostly because Turn-Based > Action for me)

Music: DQXI > Vesperia (This is mostly based on style-preferences, ToV has a good track for its genre.)

Exploration: DQXI > Vesperia

The thing is, when it comes to JRPGs I rank story over all the other qualities. Dragon Quest and Tales of have their own set of tropes, but I think Vesperia did the Tales of tropes better than DQXI did Dragon Quest ones, and Tales of tropes are more interesting. But gameplay-wise DQXI is the better game for me.

I like them both for different reasons then.

What I see coming up a lot is people saying Vesperia´s protagonist is one of the best ever in a rpg, do you share the opinion?...I hope so because I hate silent protagonists which is the case in DQXI.

Oh yes, he is atleast one of the best.  Hard not to like/love him.  I hope you end up getting the game let us know how you feel about the game :).

Dragon Quest XI is better for all these reasons. I only played like an hour of Vesperia so I can't speak for the story, but I really like the Dragon Quest XI story.

It is sad but I have to agree.

If you only play ToV for one hour you will not experienced any exploration at all, you only heard 10% of the songs, only met 3% of all the enemies, only unlocked 20% of the gameplay and only have 2/3 characters so yeah DQXI is better if you only will play ToV for one hour :o.

Ideally, both. Since both are great games. If it comes down to choosing one, for me its DQXI, easily.
I enjoy Vesperia (the version that came out this month, never played the original), but quite frankly I found the characters really annoying even by Jrpg standards. I even liked Berseria's characters better.
DQXI has better world building IMO, its much prettier and has better soundtrack. But they both have their charm.

If anything just decide if you like turn-based or action rpgs. I love both, but a lot of people get all annoyed if their rpgs are not turn-based for whatever reason.



Fight-system: Dragon Quest Xi, 100% better.
Characters: Tales of Vesperia
Story: 1:1
the world: 1:1
its hard to say.

Haven't played Dragon Quest XI yet but I played Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition on Switch and loved it. I just wished it was longer.
