Today, I downloaded Phantasy Star II on my Wii, and I remember just how amazing this RPG series is. Unlike Final Fantasy, which stood by its conventions with every single game, Phantasy Star continued to evolve with characters and a story that pulled from both fantasy of the future and of the past, creating a truly epic storyline. Every day I hold out hope for a REAL Phantasy Star V (and not a silly online game or another Universe).

I know Michi can't be the only one who agrees. Who's with me?

Remakes plox.

And Phantasy Star Online was awesome. Universe sucks though.

I got Phantasy Star 2-3 thanks to me picking up that Sega Genesis classics collection for the PS2.

2 and 4 are awesome, 3 can suck my white ass. WORST BATTLE MUSIC EVER. 3 only gets bonus points because Wren is in it.

Funny that you make this now, as my boyfriend's been playing through Phantasy Star IV on the Genesis and I've been watching/helping. It's just reminded me why it'll always be my favorite game of all time. He's really enjoying it and helped prove that me spazzing about it wasn't just all hype. XD

I think this year my friends and I will maybe finally get some progress done on our costumes from II...!

3 only gets bonus points because Wren is in it.

It's not the same Wren as IV, though. :/

Phantasy Star ftw! I remember saving for months to pay the $100 msrp price on Phantasy Star 4 back in the days... stupid sandworm quest...

As for Phantasy Star Online... wow did I spend months on that game. I've been suckered into playing it on the Dreamcast, the Gamecube, and the Xbox version.

I've never had a chance to play Phantasy Star Universe though. What made it so bad?

Agreed. It makes me wonder why they didnt keep the system from before...I would have been happy with a graphical overhaul and new features for PSO...

Needs more numbered originals and less Online/Universe talk. :x

I heard Universe was more like the original games, but when it actually came out there seemed to be no such praise. Any thoughts?
