It’s a shame that the Master System didn’t enjoy more success, because so many players missed out on one of the best RPGs of all time. Phantasy Star was created by a dream team of young, ambitious developers, and reigns supreme over other RPGs of its time, including Dragon Warrior (Dragon Quest) and Final Fantasy. I don’t think it ever received the recognition it deserved for its awesome graphics and soundtrack, or for the fact that it featured a bad ass female protagonist. Phantasy Star was a pioneer in the early days of JRPGs, and I would easily rank this in my top 10 RPGs of all-time, even now.
