I agree with the statement that Phantasy Star IV is given much praise for little reason.
It's because the Genesis had little else in the ways of JRPGs besides PS4 and Shining Force. The console war back then was just as pathetic as it is today, rational arguments had little bearing. What it boiled down to was ignoring the shortcomings of "your" platform while shaming the platform of the competition. So instead of admiting that the Genesis sucks ass for JRPGs people instead talked themselves into worshipping the games they did have. Never underestimate the depths of delusion people sink to in order to justify their purchases. You and me aren't different, we all fell into that trap before. Especially when we are young, and back then we were all kids. (And adults are far from immune either, if they are better at this at all)
