Tired of dungeon raiding in Skyrim?
Wondering to yourself, “Why am I wasting my time running around looking for stuff and doing nothing? When I could literally be outside living real life doing the same thing?” When I am in the mood to play a game I want a GAME, not a mindless waste of my time. I want to think, I want something fresh and challenging. I want the fantastic, and sometimes, I want a story.
RPG’s can be good for this, except I feel there is an issue lately with RPG development…The world’s are unbalanced. Especially when it comes to map size to action ratios.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I like big world’s and lots of exploring, but I need to be intellectually challenged. I want to worry about my characters, I want a story! I want thrills! This game delivers, and the kicker? It is barely known and highly underrated, typically being overlooked in comparison to FF7 or DQ8. The gamer’s who’ve played Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millenium know, this is one of THE best games you could possibly play. Its long, has a fantastic story line, great characters, interesting skill sets, and a phenomenal soundtrack.
If you have a chance to get your hands on this game, whether it be through an original SEGA Genesis console, or a computer emulator (I recommend getting a SEGA controller with adapter if you do), then do not hesitate. I promise you will not be disappointed.
P.S. People love the soundtrack for this game so much that the fan community have taken it upon themselves to update many of the original songs.
Here is a nicely done version of “Laughter” from the fight with Zio. Enjoy.
