Renowned YouTube influencer Josh Strife Plays was determined to achieve his childhood dream: playing AdventureQuest from start to finish. His 2-hour video sparked a wave of positivity and nostalgia across social media, with players sharing their cherished memories of the past, present, and future!

Greetings and salutations, fellow adventurer! Something magical has happened in the world of gaming. Legendary YouTube influencer Josh Strife Plays took a step back in time to revisit our beloved 20-year-old RPG, AdventureQuest. In the heartfelt and highly entertaining video, Josh shared his experience playing our classic game in its entirety – from start to finish! — reliving the moments that made this RPG so special for everyone. Josh’s genuine enthusiasm and love for the game resonated with all of us, and it was a wonderful trip down memory lane for over

1,500,000 people!

In a little more than one week, Josh’s nostalgic video surpassed a million views, making AdventureQuest his 4th most popular video of all time. Wow! In addition to the magnitude of views, social media became engulfed with positivity, hilarity, and warm-fuzzy feelings. Comments poured in from players old and new, sharing their own keepsake memories of their adventures within the game… or from their school’s library since public computers could actually play browser-based games in the early 2000s.

It is truly heartwarming and humbling to see how AdventureQuest has left such an incredible mark on so many lives over the years. Watch the video for yourself and relive the nostalgia alongside us!

Josh Strife's review is not just a reminder of the past; it’s a celebration of the timeless magic of all Artix games. AdventureQuest has been a part of our lives for two decades and continues to bring joy and excitement to players of all ages. It's a testament to the enduring power of storytelling, exploration, weekly releases, questionable art, blatant disregard to style guides, and the strong bonds forged through our adventures in our forever comfy home:
