When you play a Phantasy Star game these days, how do you prefer to do it? Do you pull out your old Master System or Genesis? Break out the Game Boy? Fire up an emulator? Maybe you have some other way of playing the games? Why do you prefer playing them in this way?

I always pull out my old genesis system when I feel like playing the games.

Since the move, storage and all, I do not feel like digging out the system and connecting it. So, currently I am playing PS4 via emulator. I hardly play with emulators because I am poor with the keyboard. Luckily for me, there is a control pad for the pc and I have been using that.

So, I rather always want to play the game on the system it is on, emulation is always the last resort for me. I have yet to beat PS1, and I will have to play it on the emulator because the GBA copy I have for it has that nasty habit of switching the game off when I save.

or... I can just wait until my copy of generation 1 comes in...

I would prefer to use the Genesis, but sadly none of ours work anymore. :(

So nowadays, I go with the emulator when I'm in the mood to play something and only use my GBA to play PS1. I don't mind using my keyboard, but I only have complaints when it comes to SNES roms.

Well, I only have PSI for GBA, PSIV for PS2 and PSU for PC, so I'm stuck with those by default. I would probably go with the PS2 for PSII and PSIII because of the larger screen.

I definitely prefer the Genesis.
But i'm mostly using the ROM on the PC because of the save state feature, hacking and unlimited save files.

Same here, I prefer the Genesis, too. But I tend to use emulators because of the save states instead. Plus my Genesis is in a dust covered box somewhere... getting it out will make me sneeze like crazy. :sneeze:

PSI: On my good 'ol emulator, mostly because I'm into the SMS Power! retranslation.
PSII and PSIII: On my GBA for portability, even though I started Phantasy Star II back in college (the year the compilation came out!) and I still have to get through three of the Dungeons of Dezolis >_<
PSIV: I haven't touched this one in quite a while, actually! =(

EDIT: "GBA" so totally needs a tooltip translation. =p

I wore out my GBA copy to the extent that I think the directional pad won't go right anymore... but I've discovered emulation and hacking, so I'm 100% emulation now. I've got all the copies of the games buried somewhere... poor Genesis. :cry:

All emulated, I'm afraid.
