I'm bidding on the following on Ebay after peoples suggestions:

Alisia Dragoon
Mercs
Toe Jam And Earl
Wrestle War (not a suggestion, I had it before; Nostalgia lol)
Asterix and the Great Rescue
Shadow Dancer
Zero Tolerence
Vectorman


please keep the suggestions coming!

whats shadow run like? and has anyone played Battletech? Saw the graphics of that and if I can find it reasonably priced I might buy it

Alisia Dragoon is pretty good, if you like that then you will like a game called Jewel Master too.

I remember you saying earlier about ESWAT, if you like that them you will love Rolling Thunder 2.

I picked up Wrestle War a while back as I LOVED it when I was younger, sadly it has aged terribly!  :(

Do you have Wolfchild? I reckon that is your sort of game, the Mega CD version is the best to go with.

Have you checked out Mazin Wars too?

Wow, I can't believe how much shadowrun goes for in the UK.
I guess that's because it was never actually released on the Mega Drive, just the Genesis. You can buy a copy on ebay.com ( the US site ) for way less. Even with shipping it shouldn't cost anywhere near the prices you mentioned.  :)

I do not own Herzog Zwei but I have often heard good things about the game.

not that I'm nitpicking or having a go but when you say not released on the Mega Drive I assume what you mean is it was not released in Europe, because obviously Mega Drive and Genesis are the same machine, right?

I am not nit picking but Mega Drive was only called the Genesis in North America, it's the MD in the rest of the world  :P

Mega Drive is possibly the best console name ever.

Yes I meant not released in Europe.
As for the name I actually like Mega Drive better, even though it wasn't released under that name where I live.

The original name for the Sega Genesis in North America was the Atari Tomahawk!

Sega wanted to call it something "American" and chose that name but Atari hated it and told Sega they thought it was a bit offensive (to Native Americans). As they were the ones set to release the machine in the US at that time they got to change the name and one of their programmers called Steve Rhyno (who programmed Toki on the Lynx) came up with Genesis and it stuck, even when the deal with Sega fell through. He chose it because it was supposed to represent a new start, being the first fully 16-bit console on the market, not for any religious reasons.

Now there's some obscure trivia! Atari made the right choice, the Tomahawk is a terrible name lol
