The Best Game On The Mega Drive?

Posted by mattysen (822 posts) -

Well, when I was a kid, the Mega Drive was my consle. Me and my brother grew up upon its warm glow from the TV set, funny ass adverts and cheesy sound clips. Recently he picked up that "40 Mega Drive Hits" or whatever that compilation is called for his PS3. Stright away the nostalgia hit me, reminded me of the simple times and reminded me of how crappy the majority of my child hood was......Anyway thats a story for another day!


So were flicking through all these games that made me constainly say " Oh yeah! I remember this!" untill we finaly hit what i think is the best game on the Mega Drive..
Streets of Rage! And had a marathon of that for about 4 hours with no toliet breaks. That was the best game back then and still is on the Mega Drive in my opionion. And 2 is equally as good aswell (mabye a tad bit better, but you know).

 Runners up I'm gonna say are:
Sonic 1
Bananza Brothers
Golden Axe 
Sonic 2

Just based on the fact that I played it a billion times, I would say Sonic 2 was my fav. The Lost Vikings was another great one.

I too was a mega-drive kid as first console.  My favourite game is either Streets of Rage 2 or Rings of Power.  But hell, thinking back on it, there were so many games I really enjoyed wasting my early years on.......I need to go get that Sega compilation.

Streets of Rage 2 isn't just the best Megadrive game of all time, its the best game of all time, period.
