Not thread crapping but, I played the MS at my friend's place and never saw what was so great about it.
The NES it felt like it didn't have enough buttons for some games (up+B= :( ) and it bugged me that the MS had two less buttons than the NES. It also seemed like it had hardly any games compared to the NES's library.
I did enjoy the 3D games on it though. Made the NES 3D games/blue-red glasses look like complete crap. :lol:

I love the Master System. It was not the first video game console I ever played, but it's the one that I played the most once I was old enough to actually understand how video games work. My family never had an NES, and the only other person I knew what my cousin Tony who lived in Indiana. I lived in Canada at the time. So we would trade games once a year when we got together on Christmas. Good memories.

More games I like that haven't been mentioned yet: Alex Kidd in High-Tech World, Bomber Raid, Choplifter, Cyborg Hunter (kinda Metroidy and better than Zillion, in my opinion), Double Dragon, Safari Hunt (best title screen music), Fantasy Zone and Fantasy Zone II, Golfamania, Golvellius, Out-Run, Rampage, Rocky, Shinobi, SpellCaster, Time Soldiers, Wonder Boy in Monster Land.

Wonder Boy III is the first game I ever finished and remains my favorite.

Wow, for how little stage time the Master System gets around here, everyone seems to have some (mostly) fond memories of it.

I wonder if a 32X appreciation thread would fare so well...
The PSTV is amazing.

People are only writing the positive stuff because the thread has "appreciation" in the title. As for me, my dog was killed when someone tossed their master system out a window without looking.

I have mentioned this before, but none of the 5 Master Systems that I have owned have worked. Oddly wnough, I have quite a sizeable collection of games for the system. I do want to find a working one eventually; it is a fun system when it does work. the color pallate is bright, the graphics are sharp, and the games are quirky and enjoyable. I would take the SMS over the NES any day.

Be thankful it wasnt a CD-i or Original XBOX. Those would've probably taken you out too. :wink:

No.

I have a generally favorable impression of the Master System. I have a small but not terrible collection of games, though I have no Alex Kidd or Sonic titles, and I only have the first two Wonder Boy games. Overall, the game I've played the most on it is the port of R-Type. I'm not a huge shmup fan, but I really like that game.
