This is the fifth game of the series originally known as Dragon Warrior in the US; it remained untranslated until a port to the DS was released in 2008, where it received the name Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride. It tracks the life of our hero, the son of Papas, over a large span of time from his adventurous childhood through tragic adolescence and a joyful marriage as he and his family fight to defeat evil.

You may be interested in watching earlier games in the series.

As the game text is in Japanese, the encodes feature translation in the form of subtitles courtesy of the author. There is also a second YouTube stream featuring more detailed information and commentary, also by the author.
