SEGA MEGA DRIVE

YEAR: 1988

Initial Price: $199

The SEGA MEGA DRIVE  is a 16-bit home video game console developed and sold by Sega. The Genesis is Sega’s third console and the successor to the Master System.

Sega released it as the Mega Drive in Japan in 1988, followed by North America as the Genesis in 1989. In 1990, it was distributed as the Mega Drive by Virgin Mastertronic in Europe, Ozisoft in Australasia, and Tectoy in Brazil. In South Korea, it was distributed by Samsung as the Super Gam*Boy and later the Super Aladdin Boy. Wikipedia

In my opinion the Mega Drive has to be Sega’s best console ever produced because of the multitude of arcade titles that were converted for this console.

Here is a list with the best games I ever played on this 16 bit monster.

Sonic The Hedgehog
Released: 1992

Sonic 2


Devil Crash
Released: 1991
There’s a few pinball games on Sega’s Mega Drive but this superb 1991 offering from Techno Soft remains a firm favorite.
