* UnwinnableByDesign: Do ''not'', under any circumstances, use an Escapipe to escape the castle dungeon at the beginning of the game. [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything The game will outright tell you that you need to reset now.]] Mercifully, this is right at the beginning of the game. It also counts as UnwinnableByInsanity, since the only way to get an Escapipe at this point is by selling all of your starting equipment.

''Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom'' [[FakeOutOpening seems to be a radical departure]] from the first two ''PhantasyStar'' games at first; it doesn't even take place in the Algol system (although for good reason). It begins with the story of Rhys, a young prince of the Orakians, who is preparing to marry Maia, a girl from the rival Layans. When Maia is kidnapped, it sets events in motion that span generations. ''PSIII'' starts off as a classic MedievalEuropeanFantasy, but the appearances of androids and obviously high-tech "caves" quickly clue them in to the fact that things are not as they seem. The game features a unique twist: at the end of Rhys' adventure, he is given a choice of [[LoveTriangle two girls to marry]]. Depending on his choice, the game then ''continues'' through the eyes of the resulting child. This child's own story will then play out, again with a choice of whom to marry. This final child will play out the final act of the story.

* AfterTheEnd: [[spoiler: The game takes place on one of the spaceships that escaped [[EarthShatteringKaboom the destruction of Palm]] in PhantasyStarII. Unfortunately, the escape was mired by a [[GreatOffscreenWar cataclysmic war]] between the leaders of the ship that resulted in a FeudalFuture.]]

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: You can escape your prison cell at the beginning with an escapipe. You appear before the king, who tells you that ''would'' have been a good idea, except you've [[OffTheRails derailed the plot]] and need to reset the game now.

Added DiffLines:

* DynamicDifficulty: Depending on who your third-generation protagonist ends up being, gameplay can have a difference of several hours. [[spoiler:To wit, Aron has the shortest campaign, since he starts on Dahlia and with Laya's Pendant and Kara in the party. Adan and Crys both start from Landen, but Crys has a bit more world-trekking to do to fetch Laya and the Pendant. Sean's route makes the game its absolute longest.]]
