Hello folks! My name's Mat and I'm mainly a handheld collector, but recently I had some insanely good luck and found some rare MS titles at 'good old days' prices. As a result, I dusted off my MS2 that's been sat in the attic since we moved and took them for a spin. Suffice to say, I've liked almost everything I've put in the console, so I'm now curious to learn more about the system and what games are worth picking up if I see them!
I've been on a couple of retro forums before so I might have crossed paths with a few of you (I went by Fheonix on Retro Collect), but it was actually Ninjabearhug who pointed me towards the forum (cheers buddy!) as I asked him for a couple of game recommendations!
While I'm not stranger to full sets, I plan to just cherry pick games for the MS as The Smurfs & Buggy Run are a bit too rich for my blood I'm mainly into Shmups and RPGs, though I'm really curious to learn about any MS games with unique mechanics or hidden gems (who would've thought a game called 'Phycho Fox' wouldn't be complete trash..?), so please let me know if you have any recommendations
I look forward to lurking amongst you and proclaiming 'wow, I totally wrote this game off on Game Gear but it's amazing!' any chance I get

Thankfully a lot of the best Master system games are still available cheaply. Games like The Ninja, Fantasy Zone, Shinibi, Rtype, Asterix are really common. Many games released on both the Master System and Game Gear are totally different such as Areial Assault so it's worth checking them out. Even when the games are generally the same the bigger screen resolution can make them more enjoyable such as Sonic 1 and 2 with a bigger view of the levels, and Castle of Illusion which is squashed when played on the Gamegear. If you've got a CRT television, check out the light phaser games, as there's a great selection of gun games not released anywhere else. Rescue Mission for instance is a very unique game.
