GENESIS (September 1989-1998)
A true 16-bit system enters the market and the Nintendo finally has some real completition
Unlike the 16-bit versions of Final Fantasy, the PS series
didn't use superdeformed characters.
be honest, I didn't like this 16-bit system at first, mainly because it
killed off the my TurboGrafx-16.
I bought one off my cousin and I still didn't like it (maybe it was the
games I had like Ballz and X-men). Then Phantasy Star 4 was for sale in
a local movie store. I started playing this system non-stop for
weeks, because Phantasy Star rocked! Other games like Revenge of
Shinobi and Sonic the Hedgehog helped to change my mind on the Sega Genesis.
*Sega released some of its best games ever during the Genesis era.
*Sega even out did Nintendo for a few years.
*If you ever find the Sega NOMAD you can play Genesis games on the go.
*The Japanese Genesis (the MegaDrive) was never a huge hit, and so we
get lousy ports like Saint Sword and Mystical Fighters.
*The sound of most of the games.
Most common Genesis games, store owners beware!:
