Phantasy Star (Weebspeak: ファンタシースター) is a shitty turn-based JRPG that was originally released in Japan on December 20, 1987, for the Sega Master System and was later brought to North America in November of 1988. The game has been included in many of Sega's numerous compilations and has been given two different Japan-only remakes; Phantasy Star Generation: 1 for PlayStation 2, which was released on August 28, 2003, and Phantasy Star: Deluxe Edition for mobile phones which was released on September 21, 2004.
The game is notable for being the first entry in Sega's poorly managed Phantasy Star series which spawned two sequels, an overpriced doorstop, numerous spinoffs, and eventually created and unleashed the cancer known as MMORPGs with the release of 2000's Phantasy Star Online.
