Dragon Warrior is a testament to the perseverance and tenacity of the role-playing games of old, the ones that predate video games, and how they have shaped video games across the board. Even though some names and licenses have changed to streamline things (such as how the Dragon Warrior franchise in America changed to Dragon Quest to go with the Japanese franchise name), so many of the RPGs of today have games like Dragon Warrior to thank for their lasting successes.
