Nostalgia has brought me back here...

Postby LaconianSandals » Sat Aug 08, 2015 10:30 pm

Nostalgia brought me back here. For some reason, whenever I get nostalgic, it always brings me back to Phantasy Star. This is the closest I've ever been to being part of a fandom or an online community. For some reason I went and googled a bunch of old websites that are no longer running, like Esper Realm and Naflign's Ego. This place looks kind of dead, but I hope it stays around forever, so I always have a place when nostalgia brings me back. I miss this place.

Nice to meet you. Im usually around. But there is only so much you can chat about 4 games that are 20 years old.

That's fair. Although I get kind of sad when I think about the fact that the games are 20 years old. Admittedly, they weren't new when I played them, but still, makes me feel old.

Yeah, it's weird. This forum really used to basically be home to me and it's kind of sad that it's so sparse.

I'm not here frequently but I do come back regularly to see what's new in the Phantasy Star world.
I love this site and forum!
Finding Phantasy Star Generation 1 translated into English felt immense! I hadn't felt that excited since some distance childhood Christmas.
And then recently I got that level of excitement again with the news of Phantasy Star Generation 2 being translated as well!
I love this place

People outgrow their interests and have different priorities in life, which consequently affects niche communities such as these online.

Social media has ruined the message board community, too. The internet has become far more narcissistic nowadays.
