Community Choice: Top 10 Genesis/Mega Drive Games

with 4 comments

When Jam and I posted the Top 10 Genesis/Mega Drive games we knew that given our two styles and having to find a top 10 was going to be difficult and pretty much hated on without a true Sonic game.  What is even better was that you all in the community came together and commented, wrote in, and gave us your favorite top 10s.  We then compiled all the games and gave them a point value based on the location on each person’s top ten (number 10 = 1 point, 9 = 2 points, and all the way to number 1 = 10 points) and generated the community top 10.  For better or worse, here’s the community voted upon Top 10:

comm_gen_top1010. Fatal Labyrinth
9.   Streets of Rage
8.   Vectorman
7.  Sonic the Hedgehog 3
6.  Mortal Kombat
5.  Gunstar Heroes
4.  Aladdin
3.  Shining Force II
2.  Streets of Rage 2
1.  Sonic the Hedgehog 2 

So there you go, the much more balanced top 10 voted on by all of you out there.  In the upcoming months we are going to do the editors versus the community on future top 10’s, all with participants being entered to win a prize, so stick with us for more top 10 criticism.

  1. Nothing can beat Sonic the Hedgehog. It was a great game with difficult stages to finish, yet highly addicting that you won’t notice that you’ve been playing for hours just to beat the game. It will always be among the list of the best retro gaming.

  2. Awesome. Thanks for doing this Fred. This was a fun list. Excited about the N64 list because it’s my favorite console. N64, Genesis, Sega CD are my top 3 consoles. Maybe we should do a Top 10 favorite cconsoles list (include handhelds)
