After the success of the first Phantasy Star game, Sega continued the series by making the jump from the Master System to the Sega Genesis. Phantasy Star II was released for the Sega Genesis in 1990. And as per my custom, I’d never played the game until about a week and half ago.
Phantasy Star was released in the U.S. by Sega in 1988, but I didn’t even hear about the game until 20 years later, which says a very little about the success of this cult classic series. Feeling guilty for having missed out, I’ve decided to take the series on… beginning with the first Phantasy Star for the Sega Master System.
There’s a good chance that by now you’ve already heard of Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King, which was brought to us by Level-5 and Square Enix back in November 2005. In fact, there’s a good chance that you’ve played it. And if, by chance, you haven’t experienced it yet… it’s certainly not too late.
