Best characters:
1) PSI
2) Tied: PSII and PSIV
3) PSIII
(This was super hard! All four are really, really close.)

Best storyline:
1) PSII
2) PSIV
3) PSI
4) PSIII

Best hero:
1) Rolf
2) Alis
3) Crys
4) Chaz (I almost can't put Chaz down at all. I really didn't care for Chaz as a hero.)

Best music:
1) PSII
2) PSIII (except for the battle tune and the dorky saloon music played in some of the shops)
3) PSIV (Especially the dungeon tune that was borrowed from PSI and remixed into a headache-inducing nightmare. MUTE! MUTE!)
4) PSI (FM or not, I just can't get excited about 8 bit music.)

Most memorable character (choose only one!)
PSI: Myau (The only time you'll ever get to have a cat in your party in any of the games!)
PSII: Nei
PSIII: Sari (She should have been Nial, honestly. Couldn't at least ONE generation have a FEMALE hero??)
PSIV: Hmm... Rika, maybe? No, uh, the cyborgs! No! Wait! I mean, Rune! Gah. This game had a lot of great characters.

Best title tune:
1) PSIII (I love this tune mightily.)
2) PSII
3) PSIV
4) PSI

Best ending:
1) PSII (My jaw hit the floor watching this ending.)
2) PSIV (A nice way to tie up the whole series.)
3) PSIII (Some of the endings were cool, some were just... meh.)
4) PSI (Trite. Happy and all, but trite.)

Best....pairing!
PSI: Well, uh... isn't Alis underage? Maybe she can hook up with Odin a few years after the fact, though they don't really seem well matched.
PSII: Kain and Shir. C'mon, you can't tell me that wouldn't be a crazy-go-nuts, wild twosome!
PSIII - Ooh, tough one. I'd pick Rhys and Lena, because the outcome makes Nial, who's da man. However, then you miss out on Sari, the coolest character in the entire series. Nial and Laya make a rockin' couple, too.
PS IV: I'll give a shout-out to the cyborgs, Demi and Wren.

Quote:3) Rudo and Amy (opposites attract maybe)


Get out of my head! I've always thought they'd be a good match.

Best characters:
1) PSIII - All them are crucial to the storyline, with different backgrounds
2)PSIV - They are not crucial to the storyline (except the hero), some are too cliché (alys, rune, chaz), some should not be in the game (rika), but they have some background
3)PSI - They have little background (except the hero) and little importance in the game.
4) PSII - You just stack characters, only the two starting heroes do something.

Best storyline:
1) PSII - Deep and with interesting twists
2) PSIII - Great twists, you don't know what will happen till near the end
3) PSI - Interesting, long, but a bit linear
4) PSIV - They spoiled the memory of PS with this one

Best hero:
1) Rolf - He is always suffering setbacks and gets no reward for his accomplishments
2) Rhys - He starts a quest by passion, very original.
3) Alis - She is nice, starts the quest to avenge her brother, strong, but the end is a let down
4) Chaz - He is not important (most people dislike him as the main hero) and cliché. Besides, he is the chosen one, which is the worst cliché ever.

Best music:
Will not vote, because I usually play games mute

Most memorable character (I chose one for each game)
1) PSII: Nei - Who has ever seen a character like Nei before?
2) PSI : Alis - She is PSI
3) PSIII : Rhys - He is passionate, human
4) PSIV: Raja - At least he is funny. The others are bland.

Best title tune:
Will not vote, because I usually play games mute

Best ending:
1) PSII - Totally unexpected
2) PSIII - Except by the Earth ending, all are fit
3) PSI - Would be adequate if there wasn't the last question for Alis
4) PSIV - Almost threw up

Best....pairing!
1) PSII - Rolf & Nei (as brothers, of course, tough I thought "something more" would happen when I started playing the game)
2) PSIII - Rhys & Maia (after all, the story kicks because of the pair)
3) PSIV - Chaz & Rika (made me throw up, but it is the only pair in the game)
4) PS I - No pair.

Looks like Chaz is now the community's official worse-rated hero! :lol:
Bland characters? :? I only found Gryz terrible... :ill: Alys was probably the only character in the game that could make me laugh and cry... :cry: :lol: Love that woman's wit and sarcasm.

And yeah, I do agree with you that Rika was only put in the game to serve as Shorty's 'love' interest and I do agree with you that the ending made me feel like this... :ill: :knockout:

Has anyone realised that Shorty and Rika only ended up together because of this? Of the 3 gals in PS4 ( excluding Rika), either they:
- One, dead. (But that would just be weird...mentor and student... :p )
- Two, an android. :o
- Three, possibly a tomboy who doesn't give a hoot about relationships. :lol:

:2c:

Maybe it is me, but I consider both Alys and Rune terrible, too predictable and not funny at all. From the start it was possible to guess that Alys would die. The only other character who was boosted early in the game and then had limited weapons and armor early in the game was Nei...
Rune is more or less like Lyle: the mysterious and arrogant guy who comes and goes and in the end is a *. The problem with Rune is that he is exaggerated in all aspects, so he became bland.

Rika shouldn't be in the game because the behind PSIV wanted to do a game with Nei being the main character, because the popularity of character in the past. It is obvious that he regretted giving a sad fate to Nei, so, when the rest of the team vetoed Nei, he invented Rika (with that ridiculous "seed" argument, IMO) and gave a "happy fate" to her.

It's as clear as day: You clearly hated PS4, and I don't blame you at times. Rune's arrogance could become a bit grating at times, and even though PS4 was my first ever RPG ( I only played it back in 2001 :p ) I had the weird feeling that Alys just wouldn't be with us for very long... I've only very recently changed my whole viewpoint on the game, after being exposed to other RPGs.
Your opinion can change alot in 9 years. :lol:

It's a wonder I've never touched the game again since December 2008. (Only to rip battle sprites for my fan game).

And maybe it is just you. Most of the fans I know here really adore Alys and Rune. :wink: Don't blame you for hating Chaz and Rika, though... :ill:

No, no, I don't hate PSIV, it is not bad. It is just worse than the rest. As a standalone RPG, it would be ok. What gets on my nerves are all the things they have done with the series history just to link to previous Phantasy Star games.

I played all them in the order, but not when they were released. In fact I would only know that there were other Phantasy Star games other than PSI in 2000. And what happened is that I was not so impressed with the technical aspects of PSIV, though they are by far better than the others (apart from some graphics of PSIII, which were better) and the game flows nicely. The plot starts very well and is going well till some annoying things started happening and I didn't like the end. My point is: as I was older when I played Genesis' PS games and I was not impressed with the technology, I judge the quality of the games more because of the plot and how they fit into the series. It is unjust to compare technology, because, for example, there was a (PC) RPG made in 93 called Betrayal at Krondor which was light years ahead of PSIV. But what makes it really better than PSIV is its plot.

As for the characters, Alys is ok, but I don't find her funny or great, just ok. Her jokes become tiring before you leave the first city. Chaz would be better if not "the chosen one". Rika was ok, but the fact that she is like Nei is not and it is a big let down, because it makes you feel as Nei's death in PSII was useless. Besides, Nei and Neifirst were created by accident in PSII, but in PSIV Rika was created as a project... this doesn't fit well in the series. Rune is annoying and I knew from the start that he would be some * in the game, and so he is. I didn't like Lutz being a title and the Lutz memory thing as well. The others are ok, but most of them are like PSII characters, just they have more text because PSIV had 4 times more memory available (their background and reasons to join you are weak or bland).

Anyway, if I really hated it, I'd have not played it at least 3 times till the end. :p It is just that his plot has many things that, IMO, spoil the plot of the others as a series.
