Finally! Here's a new top 10, and I can tell it's pretty good, despite it not being on the front page yet. :)

Although you keep using "it's" as a possessive (instead of "its"), not a contraction.

Is anyone still here? DDJ's current list has been on the front page for nearly three weeks now. :(

I noticed a big typo in entry 10. Let's see if it gets noticed.
PKMN Platinum, VS Champion: Scizor used Iron Defence x3, then atk. Spiritomb KO. Garchomp next. WHY DOES IT KNOW FLAMETHROWER!?!?! 3DS FC: 2707-1634-3423

Oof, those “it’s” drive me nuts. Good list though, but I disagree with some points.

Three times in the first paragraph. Makes me cringe. >.< But I'll read on.
FFXV, FFVII, DQXI...I've had enough.

I think you should re-read that entry a whore lot more if you think that's it.

Sorry for the triple-post (this board is dead anyway, who cares?) but here's one argument I have. Yes, I read all 10 entries, and most are good, but I don't like the first one (despite the fun of finding "it's" typos).

Not only did Dragon Quest I come out before Final Fantasy, but so did Dragon Quest II. If anything, Final Fantasy I was trying to ride the curtails of DQ I & II's success, more than it was "accidentally defining a genre". If it hadn't have been made, Dragon Quest would have still existed, and it was plenty successful in Japan. Other JRPG's would've just followed DQ's lead...I mean, that's probably what happened in reality anyway...just as FFI did...

Dragon Quest II had a party of 4 people with different classes. Final Fantasy I literally couldn't have copied off of that game any more.

Yes Final Fantasy is a "great, popular series" blah blah blah but it's NOT genre-defining. It wasn't "the first". And, unlike Dragon Quest, it sadly strayed from its original premise.

What I will admit to is FF making chosing the classes a "thing", as DQII had their class forced upon you, but this is a system that FF later strayed from and never went back to, whereas most Dragon Quest games continue to have it.
FFXV, FFVII, DQXI...I've had enough.

He literally has “it’s” for every instance. The word “its” is never even used a single time in the whole list, despite dozens of times where it should be.

This list is okay at best. Outside the rampant grammar errors already pointed out, "what ifs" are always subject to someone's scope of imagination. Some of these are just weird leaps, like FPSs taking over if EverQuest never was or the GameCube never getting Internet capability if Sega didn't help them. The biggest offender was having the #1 slot be the game crash since it even admitted not much would've changed since the Nintendo came along in 1985 anyway. Not #1 spot-worthy, imo.

You know this board is slow. Why even post stuff like that? And better DDJ's than you-know-who's!
