Weirdness: Show Your Loved One You Care This Christmas With Phantasy Star

Posted by Damien McFerran

Tyler "Christmas Sega Kid" Esposito provides some sound advice

Tyler Esposito — the lucky scamp you saw in that heart-warming compilation of Sega-released Christmas footage — is of course all grown up now, but that doesn't mean he has lost his adoration for the Japanese video game veteran.

Esposito dropped us a line to let us know about another video he has created which aims to promote one of Sega's most esteemed 8-bit titles: the Master System RPG Phantasy Star.

Originally intended to be a "found footage" style affair, Esposito tells us that the video eventually evolved into a fully-fledged tribute to the kind of cheesy Christmas TV commercials we're bombarded with at this time of year.

Let us know what you all think of his efforts by posting a comment below, and remember — Phantasy Star is for life, not just for Christmas.

What... AMAZING! Well here's hoping Atlus gets to work on Phantasy Star games as well now that they have access to Sega IPs!

This is awesome. I loved Phantasy Star II, in particular. He should do more of these; I sure miss that ol' "SEGA" yell at the end of their commercials.

I had this on the Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection when I had an Xbox. I regret not finishing any of the Phantasy Star or Shining Games. Hopefully they will eventually come over to the Wii U.

Meh, Phantasy Star 1 is just way way too archaic for my tastes.

I'm pretty sure I still have part 4, which was my favorite one.

I though about grabbing one of these Sega Genesis

First RPG I really played (Got almost to the end of it. Had to draw maps by hand). Ultima IV on the other hand was too difficult for me. I did lots of stuff and got all the characters and Nightshade and Mandrake but never really got into the main quest. (This is at age about 7 or 8). No guides or anything available to me. Think it took me a month to realise the 3 times to get the roadpass thing right at the start of the game.

Haha, I still got one of them hand drawn maps that I made as a kid too! That roadpass thing took me a few more goes than that.
