Sure its selling fast, but is Dragon Quest XI any good? Famitsu believes so, issuing its 10th perfect score ever. 
I'll be happy that the game is enjoyable, but  something about perfect scores is just hard for me to grasping. Within the last few years we've seen several games heralded as "perfect," and instead of appreciating it for what was done well, I wait wil eagle eyes to find the flaws that were being glossed over. Of course, take this as you will. Doubting Thomas' are going to shrug, and remind themselves that Famitsu also gave Nintendogs the 40 out of 40 score, and everyone else is a Dragon Quest lover through and through. 
Unfortunately we do have to be fair, as everyone is allowed a bias, and they're called JRPG's for a reason.
(The ten games Famitsu has given full marks to)
  1. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
  2. Soulcalibur
  3. Vagrant Story
  4. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
  5.  Nintendogs
  6. Final Fantasy XII
  7. Super Mash Bros. Brawl
  8. Metal Gear Solid 4
  9. 428: Fusasareta Shibuya de
  10. Dragon Quest IX
 Do "perfect" scores discourage anyone else?

Nintendogs? FF12? Really? Really? Regardless, I'm sure I'll enjoy DQ9 with my buddies. While I doubt the game is perfect, I'm sure it's still solid, and playing with other people makes everything more fun.

@Sigue: Hey, we gave Grand Theft Auto 4 a perfect score.

MGS4? Really? Really? 
  I wonder how sucessful it'll be here in the West, Dragon Quest never caught on here the way Final Fantasy did.

brawl was a joke, about the only ones they got right imo are the Zeldas and MGS, but I'm a huge fanboy of both

@Zeouterlimits: Hey, I hadn't even played any MGS before 4 and I still enjoyed it tons.

But seriously, Nintendogs?..... They must be under new management or something, cause by comparison to before, they're just about giving away 40's...

Still makes me laugh Nintendogs got a 40 but, Dragon Quest 8 didn't.  I can't wait for this game to hit the states.

@HeeroYuy: Hey, I'd played all the MG before 4 and I still was sorely disappionted/shocked.
