> if not then isn't there a romhack that does both?
There is a retranslation based on the Japanese rom which does FM sound by default, yeah. This is the one: http://www.smspower.org/Translations/PhantasyStar-SMS-EN

Up until now this has easily been THE definitive way to play the game. Maybe it has competition now, I don't know. It's still a very good option and it's free. It's still the way I'd go with personally, but that's me innit.

>And on PC it can be hard to play offline.
Torrenting and running both PSU version 1 and AOTU is pretty basic and painless, I do not recall having any trouble getting them running in offline mode when I played a couple of years back. Anybody reporting trouble with them may have gone full retard and tried starting the online modes. As for Clementine, it's a mere curiosity at this point. Let's not accidentally make anybody believe it's actually playable.

Though even bringing up PSO and PSU in a classic Phantasy Star thread seems a bit odd, really.

This was the first ever rpg I played. Absolutely swallowed me up as a kid, I hadn't played anything like it. Plus there was internet of fuckall back then so I feel pretty proud about completing that game all by myself. I wouldn't have that level of commitment or determination for anything in my life now.

Up until recently I still have the dungeon theme as my alarm.

They're both pretty pleb tier compared to the true king of 80's RPGs.

If you're going to count SMT then Phantasy Star 1 counts as well. It's got a great spacey sci-fi with fantasy elements setting.

You rock OP! Damn PS1 is an awesome game. It feels a whole generation beyond DQ or FF1 were.

I honestly don't think there is a single 2D game that matches the PPS dungeon scrolling. Pretty shocking, considering so many other dungeon games run on better hardware.

>he needs maps!
I really don't get this. I don't have a great sense of direction and I can get through the game just fine mapless. Getting lost is half the fun!

If it were possible for games to age I would have to argue that Phantasy Star did it better than any 16-bit game that tried first person dungeons.

Phantasy Star 1 on Master System
3 medium sized planets to explore, plenty of towns, lotsa dungeons. And better looking, smoother scrolling dungeons than you'll see on SNES.

The Master System has less good games than the NES. But the very little good games it has are legitimately good

Even though I had a SMS as a kid it's obvious anyone would be better off with the NES back then. But then again the NES was so full of shovelware that was pretty hard to navigate what were the good games back then.

Today it's kind of a pointless discussion since you can already ask what the good games are and just enjoy basically all consoles. Pretty sure something like the 3DO that was universally panned back then actually has a couple of games that's worth trying out.

Hardware wise the pause button is its biggest flaw, and even though a couple of dudes did some magic with it (Yuzo Koshiro most notably) I'm not a big fan of its sound chip. Really wish the FM chip was the default.

Phantasy Star is an obvious answer.

I would argue that Phantasy Star is the best 8-bit RPG out there. First-Person dungeon crawling gives me a massive hadron.
I wish I owned a Master System or Power Base Converter so I could play it on console... The game is cheap, but sadly the hardware is not.
