The mega drive version of mk had blood and sold more, so technically it was Street fighter on snes mk on mega drive. I was on the mega drive aide. But had both anyway. I preferred sonic to mario
Nintendo and Mario by default because I didn't have a Sega console until the Dreamcast, but I've liked Sonic more for years now
Street Fighter was always better than Mortal Kombat, which was always shit
>tfw neighbour had N64
>tfw I had PS1
>tfw no consolewars and just vidya fun all day every day
I was a Super Nintendo fan, but liked MK a lot more than SF. I liked and owned both consoles though. Chun was my first vidya fap.
Super nintendo was objectively better in every way.
Better library, better graphics, better controller, better looking console and cartridges, and better music/sounds.
All the genesis had going for it was it's "GOTTA GO FAST" bs that wasn't even that fast and that weird sonic and knuckles stacking cartridge thing.
Right side because I was a poorfag and muh blood.
I still envy those who had Mario games during childhood, though.
m8 do you even emul8?
You'll find literlaly 100 or so snes games worth downloading, even today
My genesis folder was barren. It's got like shining force....and that's it really.
Back in the day there was no real competition between Megadrive and SNES. SNES was expensive as fuck, and only Megadrive was somewhat affordable. Nintendo barely existed in our country.
>My genesis folder was barren. It's got like shining force....and that's it really
That's not my fault you don't like games what I like. Genesis got pretty good arcade games, Sega was always good with them. I like both SNES and Genesis, so I can never say which platform was better. They're goddamn solid and will be remembered as the best 2D consoles.
The left side is superior in all possible ways.
How is this even a contest.
2D mario > 2D sonic, for every single of their 2D games, no exceptions.
Street fighter > MK
MK was never all that good of a game to begin with, the blood and gore gimmick is fun for a while and especially as a kid you feel cool playing it.
But overall SF2 is the technically superior game for more long term fun. MK was and is not a very deep game.
>as a kid
genesis > snes
>as a grown adult
snes > genesis
Snes is clearly the superior system with the superior games. Doesn't mean genesis wasn't great. It's just not as good as snes.
I was more into playing my Sega thanks mainly to the amazing add-on that was the Sega Channel. I miss staying up all night with my buddies waiting for the new monthly games to release. Sega Channel will always have a special place in my life.
Always pioneering, always ahead of their time...
Sega genesis had internet use in 1995. Sega saturn had multiplayer that could still be theoretically hosted today. Sega dreamcast came with a built in modem and had an online store and dlc and shit, along with voice chat. Sega has always been the best
Subjective, I slightly prefer the western MD/Genesis library over the western SNES library. The Super Famicom has lots of gems, but most of them were unaccessible to me back then.
Agree, the expanded colour palette was a huge advantage
Regular Genesis controller isn't very good, but the 6-button is a GOAT contender
>better looking console and cartridges
So wrong it hurts, as I said before.
Depends on the composer and genre, SNES is sample based, and the MD/Gen chip uses FM synthesis. It's not better or worse, just distinct.
>Agree, the expanded colour palette was a huge advantage
The biggest difference is SNES relied much on external chips. Genesis could perform polygons, stretching, distortion, scaling on stock hardware, SNES was more limited without its chips.
Give me what you honestly believe are the top 5 SNES and Genesis games and we'll compare them.
I had both. I just came here to laugh at squabbling poorfags.
Ok mr.frogposter I'll bite even though it's pure bait.
Super Castlevania 4
Final fantasy 2(4)
Super mario world
Tiny toons:acme allstars(the sports game)
Warsong (no one here has heard of this, guaranteed)
Streets of rage 2
golden axe 3
Turn based strategy game from the langrisser series. one of the rare cases where the americans got the harder version than the japanese. think fire emblem, but much harder, and each of your commanders can command like 8-10 sub troops with the circle of death(soldier>archer>horseman>soldier). Each class has branching advancement paths, some insanely difficult to reach. Maps often have treasure to find as well by moving to the space with the treasure.
W-what are you implying anon?
Sega made more ips, big and small, had better processing power and frame rate, better music chips, online capability on all their consoles that nintendo started with with the wii...
I feel sorry the autistic nintendo fans who got duped with a snes and later n64. And 20 years later, the wii u.
God i love these
>muh cinematic experience
>We will never get another real Phantasy Star game again.
I'd even settle for a new Phantasy Star 3 now, just no more fucking PSO pls.
Phantasy star series
Streets of rage series
Sword of vermillion
Golden axe series
Ecco the dolphin
Super thunder blade
Double dragon series
wonder boy series
And of course the most obvious: sonic series
I could go on. Just because you never heard of them or played them doesnt mean they dont exist or are shit. Sega has a rich library, far richer and superior to your endless mario and zelda crap that youve been forcedfed as a kid.
>name better Genesis games than:
Zelda 3, Chrono and Earthbound are better in my op but some of these games are still as good as most of SNES's stuff.
The Sega Genesis soundchip made me want to stab my eardrums
I heard of them and played them, i had a genesis. They are good games. Some of themgreat.
But SNES library is still superior.
Do you really think :
Wonder boy is better than Super Metroid ?
Sonic 2 better than Yoshi's island?
Phantasy Star better than the masterpiece FF6 or Chrono Trigger?
Comix Zone or Vectorman better than Mega Man X?
I think theyre the same
Genesis sonic is better than 2d nintendo anything yes
Phantasy star 4 is a masterpiece and better than chrono trigger (final fantasy has always been trash imo)
Comix and vectorman are way better, dont care for megaman either
Its just all what you grew up with really. The snes has some good games but i find the genesis way richer and more badass and nostalgic. Though this is nintendogaf so im not surprised that the common opinion is to rush to nintendos defense and shit on the competition. First it was with sega, now its with sony.
Genesis, and if we had more rad-ass edgy genesis kids playing that generation we wouldn't be in some soft Nintendo-worshiping hugbox of an sjw shitstorm right now.
Is it just me or was Nintendo always more popular than Sega in Quebec? I may only have been born in 1996, but I'm just really damn curious. From my memory, the only people I remember that had Sega consoles were one of my brother's friends who had a Master System, and when my cousins borrowed their Genesis for a little while from one of their cousins on the other side of their family. Am I wrong to think this or what?
Both consoles have reasonably accurate emulation and the hardware is easily accessible with flashcarts to enjoy the entire library. Does it really matter what toy you played with as a kid?
>people are actually debating the systems even today
Amazing. I guess I prefer the snes but I think both are equally amazing systems and both have arguably the best library of any system.
Those are also great systems, I was just saying how in terms of varity and quality both systems had. Honestly basically every pre 7th gen system had a great library with many exclusives, the same can't really be said today.
How behind the times was Sega?
And some the best games from both system was released mid 90s so was still fresh late 90s...So people born in the 90s could have played those games when they were young.
So what is your point?
I used to walk to my cousin house which was 2 miles away from my house every weekend to play his Famicom.
but then I got the original Gameboy as birthday present which I lost it few months later.
I found out 10 years later that It was that cousin who stole my gameboy.
>Be 7yo me
>Snes and mario are everything
>Cousin has a SEGA and never lets me play
>resent SEGA and Sonic because of and call them all faggots
If I ever got to play them I would have loved them. I love Sonic now. Generations is fun as shit. 1 2 arent bad eaither
I'll never get used to how fucking weird the US snes look
