Dragon Quest III is arguably the best JRPG in the early days of the genre. The third entry into the Dragon Quest series, Dragon Quest III features ground-breaking systems such as a personality system for character creation, constantly changable party memebers, and an auto-heal system which still persists in the series to this day.
