The thing is dte, I very much would like the USA to take an active role in trying to solve global problems. That's not so much the issue. The issue is that I often strongly disagree with the…

Thanks for all the info guys. It looks like DQ VIII might be the one to try. Of course, I was only 11 years old when I played the original DW, so those fond recollections are most certainly tinted by…
