    Loads of games missing from this list. Rocket Knight Adventures, Ecco, Another World, Eternal Champions, Shinobi 3, Lost Vikings, Vectorman, Dynamite Heddy, Alien Soldier, Probotector (seriously, Probotector should be in the top 5) Thor. Seriously, this list needs to be revised.

    Thor is in there at number 38. Known as Beyond Oasis in some regions. Certainly agree with some of your choices there. Just tells you there were a lot of great games on Sega's 16-bit machine.

    Really good list, totally agree with the top 10, but you left one one of my favourite games of all time that always gets left of these lists; Dynamite Heady. It was released right at the end of the cycle but was, arguable, the best looking game on the console and had the gameplay to back it up. The hoover head alone should have earned it a space.

    Haha ahh the hoover head :P It was considered but we had to leave out a lot of very good games to get the list to 50. I think the Game Gear Dynamite Headdy had aged better, and that's represented on that list. But yes, Mr Headdy almost made this list, just got edged out by other games.

    There's some good games on this list, and Streets of Rage 2 is a deserved winner. But no Shining Force (1 or 2)…well that's a crime. I still play that now. Shining in the Darkness isn't the worst, but it can't hold a candle to those later games!

    No Kid Chameleon... No Shadow Dancer (although there is a screenshot at the end)... (sigh) at least Shinobi III is there, classic...

    How can you have a top 25 Genesis Games countdown and not have M.U.S.H.A?
  • Levontaun - June 17, 2013 3:44 a.m.

    First of all, seriously.. where is number 6? You skip from 7 to 5 in the list. Not cool. Secondly, I hope you're saving that number 6 spot for Herzog Zwei, which is easily one of the best Genesis games and virtually invented the RTS genre.

    I'm surprised Beyond Oasis didn't make it to top 10. It is one of the most amazing games I've ever played. Road Rash 3 is also superb.
  • mrsegagenesis - October 28, 2012 5:55 p.m.

    Streets of rage 2 was uncanny! Mortal kombat 2 was untouchable! super Street fighter 2 was amaziing! Sonic 1 was a classic! Altered beast too! Pro quarterback was 1 of the best football games ever! Nba jam! Batman returns! Nba jam tournament edition! Eternal champions!

    1) Shining Force 2 was great, but you use a Shining Force 1 screenshot? 2) Any list without Shadowrun in the top 5 is void. Seriously, Shadowrun is like 100 times more deep than any of these games, with way more replay value.

    Looks good. You maybe satisfy on this, you'll see your favorite Sega Games on Genesis Console. Here's the list you can grab one
  • LaraP - May 21, 2012 1:52 p.m.

    This is a very comprehensive list. I had no idea there were more than 900?!
  • darren-mc-carthy - May 15, 2012 7:21 a.m.

    wheres number 6?
  • TURNAAAR - April 21, 2012 11:41 a.m.

    The Jungle Book!? Paperboy!? That was my childhood!

    Worst article view ever. Every time you click next, it's a guessing game as to where on the page you'll be loaded. Below the image, near the comments? On top of the image and needing to scroll down? Image only, with no subtitle or context? Change this crap already.

    "Oh, and it showed up in some Kevin Smith movies, too." Actually, for product placement reasons, the game seen in MALLRATS is Sega Sports' NHL ALL-STAR HOCKEY, though Kevin Smith used sound effects from NHL '94 on the Genesis.

    My favorite Genesis game is probably King's Bounty, though I didn't expect that on this list. Though what about Shadowrun? How about more EA Sports games, which were best on Genny? NBA Live 96? Madden '93? The shmup Gaires also deserves a spot, in my opinion. And I loved Hardball 3 and Crusaders of Centy.
  • Rionx - April 19, 2012 4:10 p.m.

    Forgotten Worlds
