DQ VIII is generally accepted to be the most 'mainstream' and accessible DQ yet, probably due to the 3D graphics which are decent by today's standard, as well as excellent localisation effort.

It isn't too difficult but if be warn it has a very old school gameplay and combat mechanics (classic turn base).
