    The release of Lordus' wonderful new Sega Master System emulator ApprenticeMinusDS has inspired me to start an [Essentials] list for the SMS.

    Please post a list of all of the Master System games that you found to be exceptionally good. Feel free to mention games that someone else has already listed (more votes will put a game higher on the list), but please don't vote for the same game more than once.

    If you have already posted some titles, feel free to add a new post if you have more games for the list. Please do not edit your posts to add more games, I won't notice the new additions if you do that.

    Games will be sorted by number of votes first, and alphabetically second.


    Essentials, 10+

    [6] Phantasy Star
    [6] Sonic the Hedgehog

    I never played the SMS version, but I really liked that game on the Genesis and the arcade version was awesome at the time.

    It's just that, all my friends made fun of me when I played it and they all thought it was a big joke. I really liked the game.

    It's hard not to make fun of Michael Jackson these days (and even 15 years ago), but so far 75% of the people surveyed say it was one of their favorite games.

    Loved all 3. Phantasy was more 'decent' then great, but still worth a play.
