"Sega Master system - Ultimate Gaming."

The Sega master system boasts a hugely powerful 8 bit CPU released in October of 85 its graphics and power were outstanding for the time, plug and play gaming with some amazing retro games.

boasting some of the most iconic games around it is still worth buying today to relive the memories of 85. now that this console is nearly 25 years it deserves great respect in the eyes of gaming and without it gaming would not be the same today.

it had some great 8 bit graphics and sounds and the developers of the games are what made this console, although being outspecced by other consoles at the time it still had the most iconic games,

Pac Man, Snake, Street Fighter, Streets of Rage. the age of the consumer was booming and everything made for this console suited it. with small amounts of money you can pick one up today and get some true retro gaming, Yes the controllers might be rectangular an hugely unergonomic, yes it does have fake wood on it. but its true retro and deserves a much bigger place in gaming history

it had no online capabilities like new consoles, in fact the new internet we know today didn't exist. its graphic and sound capabilities are limited by todays standards, but nowhere does it say old is bad. old is very good, without old new is non existant. and i hope every reader respects the console and what it has done for modern gaming,

go out and get yourself a master system today!

    I loved my Master System, I think it's still in my loft along with my Amiga, Spectrum+, Mega Drive, Gameboy, and Gameboy color. Yes I don't throw away.
