Suppose one day you go to a convention and all the major creators of the classic Phantasy Star games are there on a panel. You get to ask them one question about any entry in the series and you'll get a definitive answer. What question would you ask? What would you want their answer to be?

I would like to know how much truth there was to the rumors of a Sega CD game. Did they really plan to develop PSIV for it and if so what did they have to cut when they decided to go with a cartridge?

I would ask if "Sega will ever return to the classic series and make a Phantasy Star V and remain true to the orginals in gameplay" The answer I want from them is of course YES! :wink:

If Sega will ever make a remake of PS III and use all the game's potential which was wasted in the original.

I would ask them about their influences when writing and developing the games. Just what kind of crazy sci-fi and fantasy they had in mind when coming up with this stuff.

Nothing. I'm all for the theory that "The author is dead" for games / books / movies / etc.

About the series, I don't think there are answers needed. We all know that PSIII was crippled by Sega bad marketing strategies, and PSIV was always meant to be the last, therefore no PSV (and I can understand it by a commercial POV). I don't think there are other significant questions to be posed, that would change my perception about the series.

I would ask them (even if I know the answer) why have ABANDONED the 3D representation in the dungeons for Phantasy Star IV ?? :( Would have been so great ! But a problem of "place" was the reason...

I don't understand what you mean here, tili. Could you explain?

Ah, but we know the PSIV crew did consider some ideas they might explore in PSV. That's been confirmed in interviews in the past. Wouldn't it be neat to learn where they were considering taking the story?

The author is dead is a proposition that the author is no authority when talking about his work, and that the work contains everything that is relevant for its understanding.

For example, PSII ending is laconic on what happened to the heroes (at least in English version), and no other game of the series talked about their fate. According to "the author is dead", even if Kodama, Naka, or the whole PSII team came up and said they died, it would be irrelevant, and it would not make it canon. Or if Ozaki stated that Maia did marry Lyle if Rhys chose Lena. Or if she said the official chronology was Rhys -> Ayn -> Sean. Or in a even more practical example, that story in compendium that Chaz had a son and died, given the anedoctal nature of the Compendium.

I remember they mentioning it in the same interviews, like they would be concerned with Great Light, but it was clear that it was mentioned on a "what-if" scenario. In the same interviews (if I'm not mistaken, on compendium or World of PS book), and in others, they make it clear that they started PSIV already with the idea of closing the series' story.

Me I'm not at all in this "the author is dead" theory. If the author wants to "add" something after or add some precisions, he have the right to do it for my part. And other persons can discuss it if they want. Like we said in another topic, discussio is always good !:)

@THOUL : you're right about PSV and the ideas the crators had for the "next one" :)
