Virtual Console Download: Phantasy Star IV

Perhaps the best RPG of all time in my eyes. Definitely the best game for the Sega Genesis. And now it's available for download from the Wii Virtual Console. It's Phantasy Star IV.

Now if you've played the games that come after Phantasy Star IV then you've been playing shit. PS4 was the last and best. With amazingly deep (especially for 1994!) characters and a brilliant plot, you'll be engulfed in a story that lasts until it's epic finale.

Not only is there the main plot, there's moonlighting opportunities from the guild where you can earn extra money and equip more powerful weaponry and armor. Check out some great screenshots from the game below.

For only $8 you can download it on your Wii today!

is this a blog post or a Wii Download advertisement? Just kidding! The game looks fun!

Thank you for the glowing recommendation. I love classics, and RPG's, and bought a Wii specifically because of the Virtual Console, but basically haven't really bought any games that I hadn't already played in the past (still looking out for a "Zombies Ate My Neighbors" download). I think I might check this one out.
