I still get a nostalgia bonner everytime I hear “Phantasy Star Online”. At the time I got it because it had the Sonic Adventure 2 demo but was later blown away by amazing co-op gameplay. It was the first online role playing game I experienced on a tv screen and will never forget those endless days spent on my Dreamcast. I will also never the large phone bill it racked up!
