Anybody here have any favorite Sega Genesis/Mega Drive games?

Anybody here have any favorite Sega Genesis/Mega Drive games?
Now that I did a favorite SNES games post, I want to now do a favorite Sega Genesis/Mega Drive games post.
I have more favorites for this console than I do for the SNES, since I played more Genesis games than SNES games.


Here are some of my favorites:
Sonic the Hedgehog 1-3
Sonic & Knuckles
Mega Man: The Wily Wars (Rockman Mega World)
Altered Beast
Ristar
Phantasy Star 2-4
Kid Chameleon
Dynamite Headdy
Strider
Alien Storm
Battletoads
Bonanza Bros.
The Ooze
Comix Zone
Vectorman 1 & 2
Thunder Force III
Ecco The Dolphin
El Viento
MUSHA
Streets of Rage 1-3
Gain Ground

And etc....

Are you ready for the fire? We are firemen. WE ARE FIREMEN! The heat doesn’t bother us. We live in the heat. We train in the heat. It tells us that we’re ready, we’re at home, we’re where we’re supposed to be. Flames don’t intimidate us. What do we do? We control the flame. We control them. We move the flames where we want to. And then we extinguish them.

Impersonation is treason.

My absolute favourites are Streets Of Rage 2 (then 1, then 3; never really got into 3 cos not only was it less graphically polished than 2, it always rolled accidentally when I tried to move up or down, which was very annoying, and in my opinion an unnecessary complication) and Alien 3 (especially with a Datel Pro Action Replay cartridge... or at a stretch, a Game Genie Wink which I never like as much cos you couldn't find your own codes).

Others... wouldn't necessarily say favourites but just ones I can remember (SOR 1/2/3 and Alien 3 are the only ones I still play now, every now and then) that I had are toe jam and earl, kid chameleon,?Aquatic Games, moonwalker,?krusty's fun house, populous/populous 2 (that was pretty good),?James Pond (can't remember exactly what that is... might be the aforementioned aquatic games), fantastic dizzy, desert strike, something about illusion (?castle of illusion), street racer (though that may have been the SNES... not sure), ah yes, Road Rash 1/2/3 (that was very good).

I also had a Master System Converter... and my favourite game on that was Asterix... but generally the master system was a bit before my time. And also had a Mega CD... and my favourite game on that was Night Trap.

Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom, in my opinion, is a underrated classic.

Same here!

I don't think Streets of Rage 3 is a very good game.

1 and 2 are great.

Only difference here is that I prefer 1. But that is probably mostly for nostalgic reasons. It was the second video game I ever played.
