"Japanese actress and a big time Dragon Quest fan Keiko Awaji told the media that she is upset with Square Enix's Dragon Quest X Online, she felt Dragon Quest should be an offline game, something that you play by yourself, "Playing video games by yourself is fine! What do you need someone else for?". She said she already got a Wii to play Dragon Quest X, but she doesn't like the fact that you have to play online and pay money for it."


Keiko Awaji (1933) is a Japanese film actress.

"Notable highlights of her career were an appearance in Akira Kurosawa's Stray Dog, and a role as Kimiko in The Bridges at Toko-Ri, where she appeared alongside William Holden and Mickey Rooney.

Her first husband was Filipino musician and actor Rodrigo "Bimbo" Danao; they had two children together. Their eldest is actor Etsuo Shima

Her second husband was Japanese actor Yorozuya Kinnosuke, but they divorced in 1987. Their eldest son Akihiro died in a car crash in 1990.

In 2004, their youngest son Kichinosuke Yorozuya (Satoshi Ida) was arrested for breaking into her home and served six months in prison.[1] On June 16, 2010, Kichinosuke committed suicide by jumping off his apartment in Shinjuku.

The actress is apparently a big fan of the Dragon Quest games, even going so far as to say it is her dream to play one last game before she dies.

DQ appeals to all sorts of people in Japan, even those that don't play games. That's why it sells so much and is sometimes refered to as the national RPG.
