Let's Play Phantasy Star Generation: 1

Platform: PlayStation 2
Released: 2003
Genre: RPG
Setting: Science Fiction
Developer: 3D Ages
Publisher: Japan Art Media Co., Ltd.


First Video in the Series:

This, my friends, is a remake of the original Phantasy Star - the one that spawned three sequels, a slew of spin-offs, and two MMORPGs. The first Phantasy Star was released in 1987 or 1988 (depending on what part of the country you live in) on the Sega Master System. It's one of the first RPGs (if not *the* RPG) to feature a female protagonist. It's also one of the first sci-fi RPG games, and the first to feature 3D dungeon crawling on a console. This is a remake for the PlayStation 2 which was only released in Japan. Fortunately, someone named Kyence has fully translated the game into English. So here I am, playing an English translation of a Japanese remake of a video game from the `80s... on PCSX2, a PlayStation 2 emulator.

[Total Game Time - 28:45:54]
