Recommend some Sega Genesis games

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by StanFan, Mar 4, 2008.

  1. I stumbled across my Sega Genesis buried in my closet and have been playing it religiously over the past few days. I never really had too many video games growing up so I missed out on the glory days of the system. I need more games, so I'll take any recommendations you can give me. Any type of game is fine. Also feel free to share why you like the games you are recommending. To help you out here are the games I currently own:

    NHL 95
    NBA Showdown 94
    Beavis and Butthead
    Mortal Kombat
    Sport Talk Baseball
    Madden 94
    Deion Sanders Prime Time Football
    Altered Beast
    Sonic 2
    Wrestlemania The Arcade Game
    Barkley's Shut Up And Jam 2

    In remembrance of the days that a pair of rolled up socks and two garbage cans provided hours of "NBA Basketball" entertainment...

    Great Game For Sega Genesis

    I had a Turbo back in the day (still have it actually) so I didn't play Genesis that much.

    I seem to remember greatly enjoying "Toe Jam and Earl".

    Sonic the Hedgehog and NBA Jam were all I needed.

    Good game.

    There was another that I really enjoyed, though I don't remember the name. You played twin brothers (and I believe you could switch between the two of them) who used a range of weapons. You could change the power of the weapons by picking up little orbs with various symbols on them. I don't really remember the storyline, but maybe someone will be able to tell you what this game was called.
  9. Streets of Rage
    Golden Axe
    Almost any Sonic
    Almost any Mortal Kombat
    Lethal Enforcers
    Predator II
    NBA Jam
    NHL games were decent
    Madden games were alright if you are into football

    I will see if I can remember any more later today.

    Any of the Road Rash series

    Racin' crotch-rockets at insane speeds through various serene landscapes whilst
    kickin', punchin', and clobberin' one another with clubs & chains for points and $$$ :hyper:

    +10000! :D

    Cyborg Justice was awesome too
  13. Altered Beast is the best game ever! Shinobi, Streets of Rage, are great already mentioned games. You need Mortal Kombat II. And I can't believe nobody mentioned....

    Shaq-Fu, voted one of the worst games EVER.
  15. I'll most likely pick up NBA Jam Tournament Edition since I've actually owned the strategy guide for years. I look forward to having Fresh Prince(Will Smith) dunk over Bill Clinton.
  16. +100 for Toe Jam and Earl!

    You've already got some of my favorites, wasn't there some street fighter gams on Sega? If so find those and get EVERY Mortal Kombat!
    When you go to get them from the store, if its a mortal kombet game look at the game, stretch out your arm, then scream "GET OVER HERE!"...
    Youll look like an a-hole but Id like to see that happen lol.

    Streets of Rage 1, 2 & 3
    Comix Zone
    Captain America and the Avengers
    Earthworm Jim 1 & 2
    Golden Axe
    King of the Monsters 1 & 2
    Mortal Kombat 1, 2, & 3
    Gunstar Heroes
    Road Rash 1, 2, & 3

    All these are epic games by my standards (besides Toe Jam & Earl, which is just.... *interesting* to say the least. :eyebrow:)

    I was never into sports games so maybe someone else can help you out there.
