Happy master system day!


"From today's featured article

The Master System is a third-generation home video game console from Sega, released in the late 1980s..."

Master system thread / pre genesis sega general. Z80 based console general? PAL region thriving consoles general?
does brazil keep making games for it? Are they all just so absolutely shitty no one bothers to talk about 'em? It seems like if there had been a 25 years game industry there there might be a few gems.
Haven't played much of them, but they sure can be awful. And that's not just the sound.

Fuck yes. I honestly like these two more than the original Zelda. Happy Master System day!
I'm pretty sure they stopped in mid 2000's, when ps2's got cheap.
I remember my friend had Master of Darkness and it was really quite impressive.

Kenseiden (also in anon's >>2780104 muscle memory list) was less obvious a Fauxvania, but definitely the original one for the system; it was pretty neat, with the japanese setting, branching paths and whatnot, but it hasn't aged as well.
>but it hasn't aged as well.
Here we go with this /v/-reddit meme again.

I'm never comfortable calling almost-exact-copy-but-slightly-superior games "better" than the originals ᵇᵘᵗ ᴵ ᵗʰᶦᶰᵏ ˢᵒ ᵃˢ ʷᵉᶫᶫ
Dude, I'm not Thesaurusing up to avoid memetic buzzwords when they actually mean exactly what I mean to say.
Can we just get some kind of board bot to automatically detect Master System threads and post WBIII stuff in them? It's not as if there's any competition for GOAT on the system
I thought the third Asterix, which was again made by Sega, was good again.
>posts WBII gif

Yes we all know about WB3, there's other worthwhile games released for SMS as well ya know.
I've never been to /vr/ before

Is it true that everyone knows about Wonderboy 3? That game is the tits.
It's pretty funny when you look at contemporary reviews for Golden Axe Warrior. It got scores like 40% and was labelled a "tedious, boring RPG" and "nothing like the action-packed coin-op conversion".

I actually would much rather play Golden Axe Warrior than Golden Axe. Beat 'em Ups with no multiplayer function (as in the Master System conversion) are far more tedious and boring than Golden Axe Warrior.

What would you peoples say is the best MS-exclusive game? I'd go for the first Astérix, since Golden Axe Warrior, awesome as it is, is a borderline port.
That's missing Krusty's Fun House; great game, and very solid port
but that IS a WBIII gif
Why does everyone seem to think the SMS was only big in Brazil?

It was pretty popular in another southern hemisphere country, Australia.
It's MWII I guess? Anon might have been using a personally optimized titling canon
happy belated birthday, third world nintendo
Everybody knows it was big in Europe as well. It outsold the NES here.

Used to love the Ghouls 'n Ghosts port; it's almost a whole different game with all the gameplay tweaks
Americans, shitposters like this >>2781908

SMS was ubiquitous here in Aus, most video stores didn't even stock NES games for rental

>Sega World
It did here indeed. One of the reasons is that the output was native RGB which matched all TV sets - the NES, which was only composite, simply looked like ass in comparison to it. At the time Sonic 1 SMS and Outrun were catchy as fuck, beautiful to look at, played well, and were serious system sellers.
Says the delusional 'murican living in his silly third-world country without realizing there's a whole world out there, living in far better conditions and not giving a fuck about his loud wannabe "culture"


D-don't rub it in.
>but it hasn't aged as well
Doesn't even look good compared to other titles on the system.
