That is cool. Finally found a reason to own a Genesis 3.

Or get a Game Genie and you can still play the games on the Gen 1 or 2.  ;)

Good thinking. I have used a Game Genie for other consoles and recommend them but never tried one for any of the Sega Machines.

Here's another video from John Hancock where he's looking at the games by Tradewest for the Genesis and ranking them.  Tradewest Published 7 Games for the Sega Genesis as well as a finished yet unreleased game.  Has anyone played any of these?

I have Battletoads for Megadrive. It looks better than the NES game obviously but it feels slightly less polished in its presentation. Plays great though. The difficulty feels toned down though that is no bad thing.  I was able to get to level 7 on NES but that was quite a few years ago now!!!!

It says the "Asian version" on the box. Not sure if that is significant.

Hmm, I wonder if it being an Asian version makes the game different in any way.

I have played a few of the Genesis games. Double Dragon V is bad. Mostly played the Nintendo versions of these games. I really like Indy Heat. Did not know about the Sega Genesis release. That is cool.

Double Dragon V is bad no matter what system you play it on.  I have the Jaguar version is just as bad.

There were 9 different John Madden Football Games released on the Sega Genesis.  In this video, John takes a look at each of these releases, show the physical boxed copy of each, and rank each one.   Do you remember playing any of these?  What is your favorite?

Really good video. We did rent the Madden '93 Championship version. It is probably the best version for the Sega Genesis. Myself and another friend used to take turns buying Madden each year. I first bought "92, then he bought '93, then I bought '94 and he bought '95. The series had changed in my opinion and after that we moved on to different games.

I like Madden '94 the best. Still recall buying Madden '98 which had the two new expansion teams Panthers and Jaguars. It was cool for that reason. Kind of a fitting end to Madden on the Genesis.

Funny thing at the time. Folks were lining up to buy the Playstation version of Madden '98 and maybe even the Saturn version as well when it went on sale but the poor Genny had a full display with no waiting. Hahaha! Good times!

Takara published 6 Games for the Sega Genesis.  In the video below, John Hancock looks at all 6 games and he ranks them.  How would you rank these games?   Have you played any of these?
