Same Name, Different Game: SNES vs. Genesis

In our most recent issue of Game Informer (with The Elder Scrolls MMO on the cover), I wrote a Classic GI piece that compared 16-bit games that feature the same names, but different gameplay. Most multiplatform games are nearly identical in 2012, but that wasn't always the case. In the days of Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis, you'd sometimes find wholly different game experiences depending on which system you chose. Writing about these older titles made me interested in re-visiting them, so I grabbed fellow 16-bit enthusiast Tim Turi and headed down to the Replay room.

Watch below to see us cover numerous multiplatform games, from Aladdin to Mortal Kombat.
