 Post subject: Recommend Phantasy Star?
PostPosted: Sun Jan 27, '08, 5:08 am 
Obviously, we're all fans here. But have you ever recommended Phantasy Star to anyone?

I mentioned Phantasy Star to most of my friends, and prompt them to play it if they haven't. Kind of cool when I can convert people into Phantasy Star fans. :D For example, a friend of mine has just started playing PSIV and he already loves Alys, though I had to keep my mouth shut about what happens to her. :ziplip: I dislike spoiling the story, y'know?

Maybe a couple of people online. I don't know any dedicated gamers offline or people that enjoy RPGs, so not there.

I don't think I can really tell any of my friends to get it. Only one of them has even ever heard of a Genesis, let alone going on some ancient site and trying to find a "most likely still functioning one" and then doing the same for one of those games. But if I gave them the collection for PS2, they might enjoy it.

I've reccomended it to one of my friends but, he never tried it. Either or I say you try to make him love Alys even more, so when she does that thing she does, he will cry. Or not, it's up to you.

I'm not sure if you can still recommend it today. PSIV might be possible.

Most games these days are fast and in the PSI-PSIII you often have to do some leveling before progressing. I'm not sure gamers still have the patience to wander around for hours, just to do battle without any visible progress. PSIV is relatively easy and can be done without spending time leveling only, you can pretty much walk the game from begin to end at once.

I've recommended PSIV to both my roommate and boyfriend. My roommate is on Rykros, and my boyfriend is at the Ladea Tower.

He's not emo, so I wouldn't worry too much. ;)

Again... He's not the type to get all emotional over something like that, haha.

You're both very sadistic, you know that? :D

Depends on the person. Some people still appreciate older games, y'know? :)

Absolutely. I hate it when people highlight IV as the best in the series and ignore the rest. Many 'fans' don't even feel the need to play the other gems of the series and are content with their savvyness, (its a word, I say so) for IV, and IV alone. Personally, I have recommended PS I to a couple friends, even sent them the Emulator and rewritten English hacked ROM, but they disregard it as being too confusing and looking "old." 'Course, they're also Final Fantasy nuts, (don't get me wrong, good series, just, not as good as PS) and like that series for its simplicity and classic story. Bah! Those are reasons to dislike a game series, not worship it!
I couldn't agree with you more. I may like PSIV, but it's not really my favorite out of the PS series (that would be PSIII, with PSII following close behind ;)). While many love it since it has the most developed cast and story, I simply like the other games better, if not by much.

Overall, it's one of the best series in my book. :D
