Enjoying both for the diversity of games and simply playing everything great on all systems is the only way to really call yourself a fan of video games
>>
>>5436991
no, the genesis is the better console all these SNES fags need to deal with it. Better sound, better games, better graphics.
>>
>>5436991
/vr/ agreed on this years ago. /v/'s the only ones pushing the console wars bullshit around here. /vr/ will play videogames on any platform, including TI graphing calculators.
>>
SNES was a disappointment after the NES. Genesis is probably the greatest retro console of all time.

Yeah, Segatendo childhood was the best childhood.
I'd say most people that are still trying to push a console war for SNES-MD are either traumated adults that never got over their incomplete childhood, or adoctrinated console warriors from /v/ that LARP as having been alive back then.
>>
genesis lead sega to the gutter were it died.
snes lead nintendo to a glorious ascension, its a juggernaut today.
>>
>>5437037
no, the biggest problem is that /vr/ is the only board that can contain the sega widows. so it gets overcrowded with retards.
They can't be on /v/ since sega died almost 20 years ago.
>>
>>5436991
agreed
>denying yourself more fun games to play because of gay B R A N D loyalty
lame as hell

Nintendo + SEGA together master race

I'm with this guy.

I think we can all agree that either system is better than the Turbografx.

At this point, as other anons noted, I also think you're just a falseflagger, neither sega or nintendo fan, and you just want to stir up shit.
>>
>>5437037
yeah, it’s just tards with the stupid mentality of: “this is the one I had when I was a kid so it’s better”
>>
>>5436991
Yes! Oh, God, YES!
>>
>>5437520
I like the PCE/CD more than SNES desu.
>>
Can you truly call yourself a console warrior if you are not prepared to die for it?
>>
>>5436991
Most 'gamers' are corporate shills though, plugging only the ones they've played so far.

Only someone who grabs all systems and tries all games could detail the nuances between them all, and even then fanboi's would be antagonistic toward their opinion.
>>
>>5436993
>>5437519
Heh, epic pwn my fellow hardcore gamer. It truly is amazing how many people on this board have yet to realize that everything Nintendo does, Sega does better. They aren’t the intellectuals like you or I. *chuckles softly*
Why are Nintentoddlers allowed on this board? They're a fucking embarrassment and make real mature gamers like me look bad for even occupying the same board as me.

>b-but Nintendo excelled at making platformers!

Bullshit, Nintendo didn't excel at one god damn thing. I take that back, actually. They excel at one thing. Nintendo excels at being for bing bing wahoo babies and manchildren who run away when they see blood because they are immature babyfags and can't handle a deep, dark, serious game like I can. Sega and Sony had games that reflected the inner darkness of my soul from having two Christmases since my parents were divorced, while Nintendo did kiddy shit because nintentoddlers are fucking babies who never had to rough it in high school like real people, like me, who had to deal with bullies and preppy douchebags since they didn't understand my real power...
>>
>>5436991
No.
You must also at the very least enjoy PCE/TG16 games in addition to them in order to really call yourself a fan of video games.
>>
They both share different strengths, the snes with it subtle shades of colour and the genesis with it gritty but higher rez. If you play one for a really long time switching to the other is a nice change. Snes games used to be worth a lot more than genesis but now genesis games are worth more, people may be tapped out on snes and want something different. Back in the early emulation days more people played snes because it seemed more impressive because of the extra colours but now having a few extra colours impresses no one so games are judged more fairly. They both have games the other doesn't have eg there is no equivalent of hang on on snes.

>>5437083
maybe sega could have stayed as a niche player instead of trying to attract the madden crowd but nintendo doesn't even make a console anymore
>>
>>5437104
Even if a sega widow was a thing, it still implies they felt love, something nintendo babies never will.

Based OP.
Shame on the people who'll unavoidably bring console wars to the thread.
>>
>>5437989
Eh, without the war, it wouldn't be as interesting. I don't fight in the war but I don't mind to see them reenact it like people used to reenact US Civil War battles from the 1800s.
>>
>>5437994
You're retarded
>>
>>5436991
Yes. Enjoying games on both the neo geo and PCE is the way to go.
>>
Back in the day owning both MD & SNES, i would have easily said SNES. The super nintendo had all those compelling 3rd party games constantly coming out, and it gave you the impression that this is the place where you want to be.

But these days the SNES's lower resolution/hardware blur filtering, coupled with the pathetic slug of a CPU, and the fucked up reverb/chorus ridden sound makes SNES games unbearable. Not to mention the SNES joypad sucks ass. I didn't have a single pad where the shoulder buttons were not fucked from playing SF2. Not to mention the blisters it gives you after longer gaming sessions.

But the final nail in the coffin are all those obnoxious snes retro fags these days.

Final Verdict: Mega Drive.

Poor poor seganiggers.

because we're all still busy playing our mega drives so we don't need to rely on nostalgic memories

Genesis has awesome chiptunes. SNES sounds like somebody used a walkman to record a midi playing on their computer to casette tape.
>>
>>Seganiggers getting desperate.
>>
I dunno. Whatever platform you bought the most games for, I guess (or downloaded the most ROMS for). That's as good a way to ascertain which machine is superior as any.

By the way, why am I the only person with a user name? Just wondering, as a newfag (first time on 4Chan).
>>
>>5439854
... what?
>>5439881
Not gonna lie, it's weird how the Genesis was so huge in the States yet largely forgotten these days. It certainly doesn't help that when it comes to nostalgia pandering in the US SEGA mostly stuck to Sonic. These days you either play Yakuza or you almost don't think about SEGA at all. Oh well, at least it means the Genesis games are cheaper here than damn near anywhere else.
>>5439910
Namefagging is looked down upon unless you provide content of some sort (like as an artfag or storytimer), otherwise you're bucking one of the key things that separates 4chan from other forums like reddit where reputation can begin to carry more weight than ones words and opinions.

Speaking of, is babbage's gramps fucking ded or what? I've been on and off this board as of late, did he finally bite the bullet? Seems like the kind of thing a divorced alcoholic with weekend visiting rights would do.

What is 'sega widow' even supposed to mean?
>>
>>5440568
Probably has something to do with the fact that Sega went bankrupt, so Sega fans became widows when they quit the console business.
>>
Yeah, I had both like most of my friends. Never had any of those fabled schoolyard arguments over which was better, I guess it's a poorfag thing.

>>5439893
SNES had awesome samples. Genesis sounds like an old microwave beeping and having a short circuit

t. guy who hasn't witnessed wikicrappia delete all evidence that the SEGA Genesis is faster in clock speed than the SNES time and time again like they're hiding the Dead Sea Scrolls.

The Genesis has not only one, but TWO CPUs and BOTH are faster than what is found in the SNES.

He's right though. SNES has the highest highs but if we're looking at the libraries as a whole I've always thought the Genesis library was more consistently good.

Nintendo always aimed their games towards children, whilst SEGA had a more niche teen audience. Personally I think both the Super Famicom and Mega Drive are great consoles, but I think overall SEGA had better aesthetics.
>>
>>5442195
>>5442195
no one cares about your shitty arcade games.
fuck off go to a sega forum if you love their games so much.
And no the library is no near as consistent.

I like Nintendo and SEGA, faggot. Facts are facts, the SNES was and is a slow poke compared to the Genesis which equals faster gameplay and no slowdowns.

And yet the snes has the better library. So much for your blast processing.
sorry you are in the minority thinking the genesis is better.

What kind of idiot doesn't just appreciate the good games on a system and ignore the others? Even if the SNES or Genesis really did only have a handful of good games and a mountain of trash it would still be idiotic to pass up those games.

Doesn't even mention Metal Warriors! There are some great games on that list as well as some I don't care for.

Not that I have to choose, because choosing to only play games from one system is retarded, but if I had to for some reason personally I'd pick these

Comix Zone
Ranger-X
Herzog Zwei
Alien Soldier
Ecco 1&2
Space Harrier
Phantasy Star 4
Galaxy Force
Fantasy Zone
Beyond Oasis
Toejam & Earl
Puyo Puyo
Outrun
Gunstar Heroes
Gaiares
Thunder Force 4
Wonder Boy 4

Thankfully though there's no reason to not enjoy everything great on a system and ignore everything not great. Especially these days.

Genesis had a boring library, and was a failure that lead to the eventual demise of Sega. The last time I checked, Nintendo hasn't been dead in a gutter for the past two decades. It's obvious which of the two was a success. Sega was a failure.

Why did TiT become the most well-regarded Turtles game when HH plays so much smoother?
>>
>>5436991
Genesis fags and SNES winners won't get along till we're all old men. It was a war back then and we're all still too young to let bygones be bygones.

Ive owned both and SNES was waaaay better.
>>
>>5442849
If u were on a playground arguing Pokemon vs Yu-Gi-Oh you are to young to have been in the trenches for the great Genesis vs SNES wars of the 90s.
>>
>>5444735
Nintendo Bonus.

Since the Final Fight port wasn't very good, Turtles become THE belt-scroller on the SNES at the time. TiT is nowhere near as good as the best brawlers by Capcom and Sega.
>>
>>5444548
That doesn't mean there aren't worthwhile titles on both. You're talking about market value as if it has anything to do with game quality and it's indicative of your devisive mindset. Why care about such inanity? Just play vidya and quit trying to impose the "correct opinion" on anons. You're wasting your time.
>>
>>5444825
It wasn't "great", you were being manipulated by marketing. The only correct choice was to play games for yourself, not to appease some god damned fad machine.
>>
>>5436991
Sure. I didn't even know SNES existed when I was a kid (3rd world shithole), but I love both equally now. I legitimately thought Genesis was just a follow-up to NES under a different name. Can we all agree Master System is inferior to NES though?

Personally, I never found much diversity in SNES titles.
Like, there are some good first party games + some Konami and Capcom ones, but that's about it. The only SNES game I ever really cared about is Biker Mice From Mars.
Sega games just felt more fun to me.

I grew up a Nintendo household as my parents purchased an NES and a Nintendo Power subscription for my brothers and I, and played Genesis whenever I was at a friend's house who had one, but would have never asked for one myself as I didn't like Sega's anti-Ninendo marketing. Their boastful, negative advertising against Nintendo soured me against their product, and later the same with Playstation. My family didn't own a non-Nintendo system up until the Dreamcast, because the 9/9/99 hype was real and my brother purchased one on release day, breaking the cycle. Haven't been a console loyalist since.
