Excerpt: Everyone was talking about it. “Dragon Quest VIII is going to be the best RPG of the year” and “Dragon Quest VIII is finally coming out. I can’t wait.” I was thinking “Awesome. What the hell is Dragon Quest?” Golems… slimes…? Ohhh. Right, right, right. Dragon Quest is Dragon Warrior—the old school NES, healmore hurtmore epic I played so many years ago. Nobody told me. If they had, I would have picked up the six I missed. Provided they played like this one.
