Nah, SNES and Megadrive are pretty even in terms of legendary games.

Since when?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Previous genesis minis were bad because atgames chinese company did them and they had bad emulation.  Graphics and sound were off. This one is done by M2 the Sega division behind the 3D ports on the 3DS.  I expect this one to finally have good emulation.

Huh, well in that case, I don't get how Sega allowed them to make it. Did they sue? Or was this something Sega licensed? Because if they did it with Sega's permission, that was pretty dumb on Sega's part. Trusting some nobody company from China to work with your prized IPs? Sega was nuts to do that. It certainly damaged the brand a bit, at least in my mind, in that it made me not trust this new effort at first.

Yea not sure why but they allowed atgames to tarnish their reputation.  Atgames finally made one with hdmi and not just av cables but it still wasn't perfect emulation.  I believe they still sell them at walmart but I'll never buy anything from atgames again.  I ended up just giving mine away.  So yea they made mistake licensing it out because now some of public might assume the new one will be just as bad as the atgames machines.

I've definitely seen them at a few stores from time to time like Walmart. Still though, what we have here with this latest mini console feels like a pretty good collection of games, so if it works as well as M2's reputation suggests it should, I'll probably get it. It looks like Sega is taking the product seriously this time.



I dont think it will do better than the NES and SNES classics as Nintendo products also hold a collectors value. Where as Sega doesnt really hold the same value. The game library is comparable but Nintendo is Nintendo which creates hoarders

It only took them how many tries to get it right? I'll wait for the reviews. They're put out too many of these with AT Games for me to trust without the final verdict

Just to inform you; they cancelled their partnership with AT Games for a home based partner just to keep closer tabs on the development.

Yes, I am very excited about SEGA mini. I was not initially because of AT games but after the announcement that they dropped them, M2 are are behind the ports/Emulation ANNNNND Yuzo Koshiro will be doing the sounds and music, they snagged me.

I grew up on the Genesis. I didn't start playing SNES games until the early 2000's. SNES blows Genesis away with it's games. Most Genesis exclusives were short 2 hour long arcade games. Meanwhile Nintendo, and Square were putting out these long epic games on SNES.

Double dragons 2 holds up the best, of what i've played as long as you are playing with a sideways wiimote or preferably a NES controller with a player 2. Although I havn't tried it this decade I believe Ninja Gaiden is supposed to have held up the best by general consensus, at least from what i have gauged and supposedly The Messenger (which is probably the best side scroller I have ever played) and it's first half is still edging on NG. I hope to try it when I can and see if that is BS or not. 

Ninja Gaiden holds up great, as long as you can deal with the last boss being bonkers hard. I played it five or seven years ago.

For me, the big draws would have been CV:Bloodlines and Contra Hard Corps, but I just got the CV Collection for Switch. The rest of these I have on the Genesis Collection for Switch



I love world of illusion I owned it as a child, was my favorite Genesis game alongside Sonic 3. Can't wait for this
