Dragon Quest Builders
Square Enix must have taken a look at Minecraft and thought, “Could we do something like that, too?” The answer is yes and has resulted in one of the best PS4 games of the year. Dragon Quest Builders combines the characters, lore, missions, monsters, and storylines of the Dragon Quest series with the building and crafting elements of Minecraft.
Players follow a young man or woman who awakes from a grave to learn that he or she is a legendary builder. Following the aftermath of someone choosing the bad ending of the original Dragon Quest, the world has fallen into disrepair. People are scattered. Monsters are everywhere. The world has forgotten how to build and create. You still know how to construct buildings and craft items, and thus bring that knowledge back to the world. You build towns, complete missions, reunite people, and eventually save the day. You can also take breaks to head to a creative mode where you can battle monsters in an arena and freely build up your own creation, which can then be shared with others.
