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.

Top 10 Genesis/Mega Drive Games

with 9 comments

You asked, we’re delivering.  Each month for quite some time Fred and Jam will be getting into the ring to debate our version of the top 10 games of each console, beginning with Sega’s 16-bit giant the Genesis/Mega Drive.  Sure, it’s mostly just a video for people to love/hate on, but we also include a podcast containing our debate over the list and how we got to each game.  Needless to say many of you will disagree, so have at it in the comments and maybe you’ll win a game for the beloved console.

Wanna hear how we got there?  Here’s the podcast containing the debate:
