I had a Genesis, and I wish it would have been an SNES. Don't get me wrong, I had a lot of fun with it, but the SNES was simply better.

We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers…Also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.  The only thing that really worried me was the ether.  There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge. –Raoul Duke

It is hard to shed anything but crocodile tears over White House speechwriter Patrick Buchanan's tragic analysis of the Nixon debacle. "It's like Sisyphus," he said. "We rolled the rock all the way up the mountain...and it rolled right back down on us...."  Neither Sisyphus nor the commander of the Light Brigade nor Pat Buchanan had the time or any real inclination to question what they were doing...a martyr, to the bitter end, to a "flawed" cause and a narrow, atavistic concept of conservative politics that has done more damage to itself and the country in less than six years than its liberal enemies could have done in two or three decades. -Hunter S. Thompson


The Mega Drive had some great games, but most of them were exclusive. Multi platform games usually sucked on it. IMO it is a under rated system.

The Genesis deserves it's props. I had many hours of fun playing mine from 1993-1997.

The SNES was just where it was at in the 16-bit generation. Sonic was great, and I played plenty of it at my friend's house (and I now have the Mega Collection -- thanks Sega!), but the SNES had tons of great exclusives and better versions of multiplatform games.

The SNES was definitely a better piece of hardware (it should be, it wasn't released until 2 years after the Megadrive) but that didn't change the fact that Nintendo kids would get atomic wedgies from the Sega kids in the playground. Nintendo was (and probably still is) considered the geeks choice, while Sega was considered cool. That changed a bit when Street Fighter 2 was released exclusively on the SNES. Sega kids had to stop beating on the Nintendo kids so they would be allowed round their house to play SF2 (the beatings started again when a version of SF2 finally came out on the Megadrive).

Streets of Rage, Micro Machine & Golden Axe are some of my personal favourites from that era and until Tekken came along, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 was easily the best fighter available, as it had the most advanced combo system (not to mention the Fatalities, Animalities and Babalities). I can't believe there are so many people that prefer MK2, although I guess that is just a case of nostalgia dictating opinion.
