I collect for the master system. I have around 60 games. It's not my main system I collect for, but I would like to get a lot more games for it.

My favorite is Phantasy Star.And I did use a guide. I commented way back on "what games are you perfect 10s" and this was the reason I was unable to list it. There are sections that I find it close to impossible. It's not the dungeons, its the weird stuff you have to find that seems close to impossible.

Other favorites:
Sonic
Wonder Boy series
Alex Kidd in Miracle World
Rampage
Double Dragon
After Burner

You do not have an area. Unless it is some sort of play area, with sandcastles, and buckets, and spades!

I started collecting Master System titles a year or so ago. Sadly, the selection available to me has not been very large, so I only have four games or so. It's a very humble beginning, but you have to start somewhere.

One of the few games in my collection that I'm particular pleased with is King's Quest. I acquired this less as Master System selection and more just as a part of my collection of King's Quest games. But it is still an interesting curiosity to see a classic adventure game like this available on such an early home console.

I'm really hoping to get a copy of Phantasy Star.

I too collect for SMS but admittedly not a top 5 console for me to collect for. My cousin had one back in 1987 so playing Space Harrier and Out Run on it were my primary memories when I was young. Picked up one cheap with some games about 15 years ago or so and will periodically buy games here and there when I find them. Might have to utilize ebay to get some of the games I really truly want still such as Alex Kidd in Shinobi World, Y's the Vanished Omen, Golden Axe Warrior & Basketball Nightmare.

Top 5 SMS in my collection:
5. R-Type
4. Fantasy Zone
3. Phantasy Star
2. Shinobi
1. Wonder Boy 3: Dragon's Trap

Had one when I was younger and sold it to buy a genesis. Been able to find a system and a game.  Wish I had more but are hard to come by around here. It was a great system and still is.

seems sooo hard to collect for
the local retro shop near me VERY rarely gets SMS games in.
and i've never seen a console in my life.


if i'm an NPC, i want to be the secret boss in a low tier niche JRPG.

Exactly.  "If" they do get anything it is quite pricey.

I bought my SMS as a bundle from Goodwill the day before I started my first job out of college.

$24.99 and it came with 2 controllers, a zapper, and 10 CIB games.

I still don't know what the built-in game is for my SMS.
