I beat Dragon Quest I on the Switch the other day. While I'm personally not the biggest fan of the new graphical style, it still plays pretty well and serves as nice JRPG comfort food. They've also made the game quite a bit easier for the most part. For example every enemy gives roughly two times the EXP and gold and the late game enemies give even three times the money and EXP. This means that you have to grind much less. Also, you can find plenty of seeds that increase your stats by a significant amount. So all in all the game plays much faster and is also fairly easy, at times maybe a bit too easy.

Dragon Quest II is done as well. It's a really nice and comfy game once they've removed most of the terrible grind from the cave to rhone/eldarak. I think on the NES I spent 6+ hours grinding away, while here you gain levels extremely quickly later on. Also, the QoL improvements and rebalancing from the Super Famicom version were quite nice to have.

I beat Castlevania III and Super Castlevania IV on the Castlevania Collection for the switch. III is still insanely difficult, even though I had beaten it once before. I think it was one of the first games I contributed to the yearly NES challenge.

This time around though I didn't go for Alucard, but got Grant first and then wanted to recruit Syfa as well. However, it seems like you can only have one companion at the same time, so Grant left and I had to do the rest of the game with Syfa.

SC IV is still really good, but I forgot just how much I disliked the last 2 levels. I think I wasted most of my time on those levels alone. At least the fight against Dracula was really intense and epic!
