The Sega Master System has found new purpose in Alcoholic Luigi's life: wall ornamentation.
Considering the fact the Master System was redesigned specifically to suit Western fashions of the time, I would not be surprised at all to learn it was heavily influenced by the movie, even if not directly by these scenes.
I still have mine and it's still fully functional. This is one of my go to gaming systems for retro gaming along with the Nes, Genesis, Snes, and Neo Geo.
I still play my copy of Phantasy Star, even though I had to do some surgery a few years back to replace the battery backup.
I'm jealous. My copy of Phantasy Star won't work at all. I tried cleaning the cartridge contacts and it still doesn't work. Maybe I will find something on Ebay.
The Force wasn't Awake back then yet.
Such a great console.
That takes me back to a simpler time in gaming and also reminds me of having a tv with a "band-aid" X on the side that you used to have to hit to get the tube to work
Master system had fantastic games. Wonderboy in monster land, Castle of Illusion, Moonwalker and afterburner all bring back wonderful feelings of nostalgia for me. But it also suffered from having the worst console controller ever made in my opinion.
Oh man. I forgot about Moonwalker. I wish I was playing that right now.
Just picked one up off eBay recently. In great shape and great price. They don't make them like this anymore. Sturdy machine and can take a beating after all these years! Out here in the U.S it was short lived, because of the NES. Apparently it went strong for many years in Europe, with lots of great games! Alex Kidd, Rambo, Double Dragon, Shinobi, Cloud Master, Predator 2, etc. The master system actually did have better color specs and graphics than the NES. Speaking of Star Wars, they did make that for the master system. Game case alone looks awesome!
