>>2929453 Lost Vikings is nice, never could get into shining in the darkness though. The NHL titles are pretty nice tho. Besides that you're right, shitty collection. Mostly got these cause they were cheap or someone gave them to me.
>>2929572 Phantasy Star, I haven't played that, but I don't think it stands up to the masterpiece that was FF3.
Sonic 3&K is okay but it costs you two carts and every level has you doing the exact same thing (run, jump, beat a robot at the end), with different backgrounds and 2-3 per-stage gimmicks. Yoshi's Island on the other hand has almost every stage completely unique - you throw eggs, spit watermelon seeds, get swallowed by a frog, have baby Mario running up on walls, have enemies playing baseball, dig a path in the walls to advance, touch fuzzy, get dizzy, ski, become a train and run on the tracks in the background, or become a submarine and shoot torpedos. It has more levels, and more varied levels.
>>2929525 >Columns is okay I guess, but the music would've been so better if it wasn't on the Genesis Columns is on the SFC, it sounds worse and has incomplete tunes, get fucked. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=admQ2Ideh0M https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cwmjmdovjg
>>2929579 >>2929641 Phantasy Star 4 is so fucking good, man. It's this star wars/high D&D fantasy turn based RPG with badass graphics, music and story. And all the story bits and dialogue are told in these comic cut out panels with the sweet ass portraits and fuck
>>2929736 how is PS3? I don't know much about the series, but it seems to be "the one people don't like". I'm not even sure if that's true, but 2 and 4 go for high prices while 3 is cheap. I ended up picking it up on a whim a couple months back but haven't gotten around to trying it out yet.
Well, saying that, psii does have a certain early-megadrive charm, I like the music (but there's not enough of it) and, of what little story there is in this game, its pretty good. The trouble is that it's mind numbingly boring, with ridiculously oversized, tedious dungeon layouts. The story consists of basically a couple lines of dialogue every couple of dungeons. Somehow the game felt less advanced than its master system predecessor.
I cannot recommend Rocket Knight Adventures enough. It is my favorite action platformer from that generation easily.
Other games would be Shinobi III, Mega Turrican, Streets of Rage 1/2, Vectorman, Gunstar Heroes, Contra: Hard Corps., Dynamite Headdy, the Road Rash trilogy, Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park Rampage Edition, and Ristar.
If you can get into shoot 'em ups I also suggest Thunder Force III, Wings of Wor, Bio-Hazard Battle, and Elemental Master. Only other one I can highly recommend is Eliminate Down but that is an expensive import.
Micro machines 2 or 96 are really good multiplayer games and are good challenges in single player as well. 96 is basically mm2 with some different levels and a level editor. Try to get a j-cart (cartridge with 2 extra controller ports) for 4 player. Micro machines is pretty common in Europe, I'm pretty sure they came out in America too but they might be less common.
>>2929453 Isn't it obvious? He probably bought some shitty bundle on eBay and saw all these shit games and was like "Wow look at all the games I can be super retro now!"
If OP had even done the bare minimum amount of research before hopping in the retro Genesis bandwagon he would have also realized that his Genesis is the worst fucking version of the model 1. Non TMSS and HD graphics or gtfo.
>>2929804 Because there were about two carts left in eBay and some impatient morons started bidding $50. Now they ruined the price for everyone else because idiots are now posting $50 BIN that won't sell to anyone but the most impatient morons.
>>2930445 There is no Genesis bandwagon. Check out the prices of Genesis games on eBay compared to SNES games. I'm not biased against Sega, I think the Saturn and Dreamcast have some great games, but the Genesis was honestly a pretty shit system.
>>2930456 Gtfo out here with this bullshit. The reason why Genesis games aren't expensive is because autists have less nostalgia for them because most autists are Nintendo manchildren. Also in case you haven't noticed Genesis games are starting to raise in price by a lot. Ristar was selling for $50 and even common games like Ninja Turtles are starting to go for $50 loose. Honestly you sound like a bitter SNES fag that started collecting in the last year and is pissed you got fleeced into paying ridiculous prices for games you only played once and shelved.
>>2930464 ...how does any of that make sense? Yeah, I do collect for SNES and not Genesis. I'm not bitter about Genesis prices, I was just stating a fact. Genesis prices actually don't affect me at all because I'm not interested in those games. All I was saying was that there's no Genesis bandwagon like there's a SNES bandwagon. You said it yourself, Genesis doesn't attract as many autists. So no bandwagon.
That's not to say you can't find expensive Genesis games of course, check out what boxed Musha goes for.
>>2930468 It makes sense because what clearly drives up the price of games is demand with a combination of rarity. Doesn't mean the games are shit like you implied. But coming in here and shitting up every Genesis thread you see and saying bullshit like Genesis games are cheap because nobody wants them, is just you desperately trying to boost your pathetic ego about the SNES games that you've probably purchased in the last 6 months. You honestly sound bitter that you probably paid $60 for a mediocre platformer when other people people who play Genesis can get 4-5 better games for the same price.
>>2930482 Whatevs man. Do you know how many classic games the SNES has? LttP, FFVI, Super Metroid, Chrono Trigger... people still talk about those games and they appear on every GOAT list. What do people outside of /vr/ talk about from the Genesis? They talk about how shitty the Sonic games were and... that's about it. Enjoy your inferior console! ;)
>>2930494 I think the Saturn and Dreamcast are excellent consoles. I had a Genesis as a kid and not a SNES, the Genesis was my only console for years. What bias could I possibly have? I just think it's library is significantly inferior to the SNES's.
>>2930468 Snes games are more expensive because of idiot American manchildren and their gay youtube channels, actual retro enthusiasts care about all consoles and have been doing this before it became a fad.
>>2930493 The Genesis had Phantasy star, Ristar, the good sonic games, Vectorman, NBA JAM, Streets of Rage, Shinobi, Gunstar Heroes, at the time the superior street fighter port (6 button), the best Mortal Kombat and a whole bunch of other fantastic games, I don't really understand why the Snes's admittedly fantastic library would diminish that. They're both great consoles.
>>2930493 That is great and all, but why should I bend to popular opinion? I tend to like the style of games the Genesis offers. I did so back then and even more so now. >>2930648 You mean when people just barge into the thread and continually stir shit. I personally don't go into threads just about the SNES to do so, but Genesis threads tend to devolve into this quickly.
>>2932034 My god, the anon at >>2932014 totally called you out. You have total drone mentality. >More sales means it's a better game! Hurr durr! By that retarded (or autistic, since you probably only speak in meme words) logic, FNAF or Ride to Hell are "good games".
>>2932034 There are better JRPG's on the SNES than FF3. Chrono Trigger did a more "linear" adventure better than the first half of FF3, Romancing SaGa 3 did the free roam world better than the World of Ruin half.
