What do Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat have to do with Nintendo and Sega? They were primarily arcade games.

I was a lefty but right wasn't bad either.

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

Right is shit.

Right. It was fun group with others with the mega drive and picking up kids with the snes

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

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.
>>
>>323825867
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.

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.

Until last gen MK was basically a Nintendo series, with the best versions of the games including exclusive content.

Right side, always on the losing end. Got a Genesis, got a Dreamcast, got a Gamecube.

>>323825867
I like and still own both consoles, both Mario and Sonic are classics, can't decide between them.

I'd rather play SF than MK, tho.

>>323829230
>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.
>>
>>323825867
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.

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

>Better library
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.
>>323828671
>Better graphics
Agree, the expanded colour palette was a huge advantage
>better controller
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.
>better music/sounds
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.

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.

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.

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.
