Was Phantasy Star Online ahead of its time?

When it comes down to Action-RPG’s of the 00’s Phantasy Star Online is arguably one of the most underrated titles from that decade. Phantasy Star Online was among one of the first RPG titles that the world has ever seen that utilized internet connection in relation gameplay. This game was unique because back in the early 00’s online gaming had yet to achieve mainstream popularity like did from the mid 00’s onwards. Despite, Phantasy Star Online being one of first RPG titles to utilize internet connection the series itself arguably began to decline in popularity following the early 90’s after the release of games such as Phantasy Star III and Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium.

As far as the concept of creating an online RPG is concerned there is no doubt that Phantasy Star Online was ahead of its time. In fact, if Phantasy Star Online was initially released a few years later sometime between 2005-2010 it could have been much more popular than it was on Dreamcast or even the Nintendo Gamecube .
