    I can't believe I've officially been playing this game off and on for 18 years now. I still remember going to Toys R Us with 3 of my friends and rushing home with the game like it was yesterday. Thank you @tofuman and @Sodaboy for keeping this ancient game alive

    Happy Birthday PSO

    FuryBull It's Greek to me.

    Definitely the game I spent the most time playing on my Dreamcast. My first Experience with an online game outside of C&C games.

    Also the reason I learned to type really fast with one hand.

    It's hard to believe that much time has gone by since the release of it, I like so many people have a ton of memories from playing most versions of this game. I started out on the dreamcast version which I played online for about a year, I never could get online on the gamecube version due to my internet. Blue Burst is the online fantasy I could only dream of when I was stuck playing gamecube pso offline.

    I bought a Dreamcast, PSO and a keyboard on February 21, 2001 at Future Shop. The receipt is still packed away with the Dreamcast in its box. After purchasing it I remember dad saying something along the lines that the young lady at cash seemed interested in me.

    I've wasted way too much of my life on this game. I was 3 years old when this game came out. Oh well, I have plenty more life ahead of me to waste on this game.

    Might've been a fluke on Sega's part, but it is a great game nonetheless.

    I've been drawn to this series ever since I played Phantasy Star 2 at my neighbors back in junior high. Happy birthday PSO!
