Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar

Think you’ve finished all the RPGs on the Master System? We bet you haven’t played this one, especially if you’re in North America. As the only Ultima game to come to Sega’s 8-bit wonder, Quest for the Avatar brought a entirely different take on the console RPG genre and offered a massive world with an intricate morality system. It’s definitely a must-play for RPG fans!

Genesis Reviews


Renovation provided a major software lift to the Genesis in its early years, releasing all sorts of titles and covering almost every genre imaginable. Among the RPGs in its line is Traysia, which never really seems to excel at anything. Sometimes fun, often dull, it never really seems to know what it wants to be.

Sega CD Reviews

Dungeon Master II: Skullkeep

A PC classic comes to the Sega CD in great form! Despite some control adjustments and a large memory footprint, Dungeon Master 2 maintains everything that made it so popular on computers, and it gives Sega CD gamers a chance to dive into perhaps the largest RPGs ever released on the machine. A word to the wise though: bring a Mega Mouse or a six-button controller.

Rent A Hero

Early in the life of the Mega Drive, Sega of Japan released an AM2-created RPG starring a kid in a super suit. Rent A Hero went on to achieve cult status among Sega fans, but the series has never officially crossed the Pacific. This is a shame, as it’s a quirky title that, while not the best RPG on the console, still manages to be entertaining.
