Enix's Dragon Quest series was an ostensibly unremarkable RPG when it first came out in Japan, but it soon swept the nation and is now a guaranteed blockbuster. The series was less loved in America, but those who stuck with it -- like us! -- got just as much enjoyment out of it. Ray Barnholt and Alex Fraioli return for a game-by-game chat of the entire Dragon Quest series, including speculation about its upcoming online sequel, Dragon Quest X. //

In December 2000, Sega released Phantasy Star Online for Dreamcast. PSO not only brought back a dormant RPG franchise, but it legitimized large-scale online play on game consoles. But after PSO, what else was there?

Including making fun of PS Universe. ** ** Artwork: Erin Mehlos
