    SNES Mortal Kombat was better! True, Johnny Cage's and Kano's fatalities were ruined, but we got original fatalities for Raiden and Sub-Zero that were arguably more in line with their powers. Less gory, yes, but instead of all those variations on decapitation, we got Raiden electrocuting his opponent leaving only a skull on a heap of ashes, and Sub-Zero smashing his frozen victim to pieces. As for the lack of blood, I never missed those disproportionate, ugly bright red blotches that seemed to have been drawn by an eight-year old.

    On the sound chip entry: Picking a copy up to replace the one lost over the years, I feel genuinely sorry for anyone who played Earthworm Jim on an SNES. The sounds were designed for the Genesis chip, and the SNES one, for all its glory, had a terrible port with muddied or downright missing sounds, muddled music, and the works.

    There should be an entry for Chemical Pant Zone's music ALONE.

    Sword Of Vermillion and Sonic Spinball are two of my gaming guilty pleasures, I don't care that they're not that good, I've still sank more time into them than some of today's so called AAA titles and occasionally crank them back up even now :)

    I thought Sonic Spinball was fun, I think it still holds up too.

    The gameplay holds up, but the choppy animations haven't aged well at all. I still play it on occasion [as part of the Ultimate Genesis Collection; when kid sister and I left the nest, she got the Genesis and I got the NES]'s one I've never finished. Get close whenever I put more than an hour or two into it, but the dumb luck insta-death drains get me every time.

    I got a Mega Drive just one month or so after release in the UK. To this day it is still one of my all time favourite consoles. Have to say that Virtua Racing was a triumph at the time. The SVP chip had a lot more horsepower than the model 1 Super FX chip and it showed. Despite the silly cost (£70 in the UK) it was money well spent. I think Thunder Force IV has the best sound track on the system. Technosoft definitely knew how to make the sound chip sing (though the voice driver could have used some work and was actually worse than installment number III). Gunstar Heroes was a programming masterpiece. One question though, what is going on with the Spin Dash Sonic picture? That was not introduced till Sonic 2 but the level is clearly Green Hill Zone from Sonic 1. Oh and 6 button pad FTW!

    I had a Genesis before Sonic came out, and I had Sonic before they came up with blast processing, I believe, so they never really sold me on the hype. That six button controller was really comfortable, even if I don't remember having many chances to use the upper buttons.
