The #SEGA Master System is a massively underrated system with some interesting peripherals

@jimblimey it was quite popular here in germany as it was offered by huge mail-oder companies and it was slightly cheaper than the NES / Famicom. In 1994 it was the most successful console in europe with 6.25 million devices sold.

@Wintermute_BBS it was popular here too (had one myself), dont know if its the overly American influence of YouTube and twitter but just doesnt seem to get much love


@jimblimey @Wintermute_BBS probably, I know one of the UK YouTubers (either Ashens or Nostalgia Nerd) did a video on its success in the UK. The NES global domination myth is one that has become fixed in peoples minds, like the idea that the Nintendo vs Sega battle was global
