Sega Master System

Postby BurningDoom » Sat Nov 21, 2009 3:51 pm

Should I buy it or not? This is the struggle I'm having. I'm on a quest to own every major video game console up to the 128-bit era. So far I've got: NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, N64, PS2 (& PS1, backwards compatibility), XBox, GBA-SP (& classic gameboy, backwards compatibility). So I still need Sega Dreamcast, and Gamecube which are cheap and easy enough to find.

The problem I have with Sega Master System is that they are going for $50-$100 a piece, and it's only an 8-bit system. Add to that that many of the best games for Master System were eventually made for Sega Genesis (Altered Beast, Golden Axe, Space Harrier, Mickey's Castle of Illusion) which I have. Is it worth it?

Are there other games worthwhile for it that I'm missing here? Should I get it?

What about the Sega Saturn and Sega CD? I'm not familiar with the Master System.

If you already have a Genesis, then just get the adapter so you can play the Master System games on the Genesis.

For those unfamiliar with the Master System, it is Sega's system that came before the Genesis.

Well I wouldn't consider Sega CD or Sega Saturn as a major system. Neither of them lasted for more than a couple years, and not too many significant games for them either. And then both of them are ridiculously over-priced on re-sell market!

Don't bother.

The master system wasn't really great.

But $50-$100?Where are you shopping? Around here you can pick up a master system, 2 controllers and all the hook ups for like 30 bucks.

They shound't be priced that high.

This is on Ebay & Amazon that I'm seeing these prices. And the only place around my town that has one is pricing it accordingly.

That's too bad.

Mind you most of my vintage dealers have closed shop :(
