Let's talk about and obsess over Dragon Quest! The 35-year-old JRPG series has its hooks in us, and we're okay with that. Austin played through the whole series in a single year and is blogging about it, and Beej is discovering and adoring the series right on his heels. From character spotlights to deep dives into mainline games and more, we hang out each week to rave about Dragon Quest and celebrate the series! Like all Geek to Geek shows, we try to keep a clean rating. DQ is about fun for us, and if you can play DQ with your kiddos, you can listen to our Dragon Quest podcast with them too!
