The lights are on
With games like Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star, and Shinning Force, it's no wonder that the Genesis gave the SNES a run for its money back in the day. This is where you can find fellow gamers with a soft spot for the underdog.
First and for most I grew up on one console: The Sega Genesis. I personally feel like there are a lot of games out there that for whatever reason are over looked for the Mortal Kombats, Sonics, and Earth Worm Jims of the world. One game in particular that I'd like to talk about briefly is Global Gladiators. With a sweet sound track, killer game play, multiple character selections, and a cameo from Ronald Mcdonald himself, this game dominated my T.V. for many hours when I was younger, and now that I've picked it back up recently it continues to do the same. Why I haven't seen this game on XBLA, PSN, or whatever the Wii's online thing is called blows my mind. Its one of the best games in Sega's library and hopefully for those of you who haven't heard of it before, that you go and check this out as soon as you can.
I'd like to end this post with a question to everyone out there. What is a Genesis game that you like to play that you feel like doesn't get the respect it deserves?
