Panorama Cotton, Kid Chameleon, Alien Soldier. Difficult choice however, as the Mega Drive's library is simply top-tier.
1.- Virtua Racing Deluxe2.- Virtua Fighter3.- Sonic CD
>>9750695It's my favorite console of all time and has dozens of my favorite games ever. I'll have to go with Ecco the Dolphin, Beyond Oasis and either Ranger X or Comix Zone which is a super hard choice but probably CZ.
Someone should make a co-op hack for Battle Mania Daiginjou.
>>9750909>Panorama CottonI have never understood how anyone can play that game, the fps is just too low.

>>9750695It's the system I've spent the least time with but to answer the tqToe jam and earlZombies ate my neighborsOutrun. is always funCan't really hook my stuff up but these are games that come to mind except maybe I'm thinking of master system with outrun.
>>9751158She's divorced, it's a sin I think.
>>9751160ESWAT: City Under Siege is pretty good. The first two levels are standard, then the third level is neat because you get the power suit. The fourth level is bad because you can't even use your power suit to its fullest, and stage five is amazing with what the level forces you to do with the suits flying capabilities.>>9750695>If you could choose only 3 games for the system, what would they be?That's a tall order. Rocket Knight Adventures and Sonic 1 are excellent. Then would I pick something like Contra Hard Corps or Shadowrun? The Genesis and the PS1 are probably the two consoles I'd never want to be limited om what games I'd play.Recently I beat Jewel Master which was a great game. Loved the mixing and matching elemental rings. Sometimes on another play through I found a more effective ring power to use to make my way in a section like the short ranged fire burst on the first part of the ice stage.I also beat Cadash which was surprisingly easy after you grapple around with the black pudding boss. Short and sweet action game that you journey across the country.I'm unsure what I'll really pour my time into next. I might suck it up and do my journey through Ecco: The Tides of Time since I just got to the Tube of Medusa, or I can try to beat Alissia Dragoon which I was able to get to the stage 6 boss. Maybe Super Hang-On or Road Rash.
>>9751346It's better as a run and gun than an autism simulator
>>9751154The FPS is excusable given just how much is going on, and on stock Mega Drive hardware, it is a seriously impressive feat.
NBA Live 95 and Road Rash the GOATed shit.

Shadowrun but with a patch that mods the gameplay (closer to 2nd edition handbook) and fixes the hand-to-hand combat bug. It’s just so muck fukn fun! I’ve beaten it non-modded many times over 20+ years but this actually makes it even better! All other Shadowrun games are bogus compared to it.
playting this with my cousins in early 90s was great
>>9750775The dreamcast is a port machine with no real games
>>9750695StarflightPhantasy Star 2Shining Force
>>9751630It does not matter how impressive it is. If its not playable, then its not playable. I have a potential fix though, handle the movement of the player sprite separately to the rest of the game. Sprite based systems are perfectly suited to this kind of hack, since the gpu itself is always running at 60fps, and to move a single sprite just requires writing a few bytes of video memory.
>>9750695The Mega Drive is actually the weakest Sega home console, but most people with taste already know that. There's a reason the console was constantly on life support from the CD addon to the 32x. It just couldn't compete with the other options on the market at the time.In any case, I'd choose:>Altered Beast>Shining Force>Phantasy Star IV
>>9752617but... muh shenmue...m-muh sanic adventure mothafucka
>>9750937any recent pics of her?god I love short girls!
>>9752629It's significantly more playable than Super Thunder Blade, that's for sure.
>>9752645>It just couldn't compete with the other options on the market at the time.Nice bait, it's THREE TIMES faster than the SNES. Mega Drive games consistently do effects the SNES could only dream of, and modern homebrew efforts have only shown that it is even more capable than we previously believed.
It's ironic how Americans tend to have the worst takes and the most surface level understanding of the Mega Drive despite it being more successful over there than anywhere else.
>>9754565What are you talking about?
>>9753135I do really like Shenmue But it's genuinely a shame it didn't get ported to the original Xbox with Shenmue 2 so I don't have to own a Dreamcast
>>9754571they're usually the ones saying it's just a sonic machine and has a bad sound chip.

>>9754575That's just Nintendies. They hold multi decade, multi generational grudges against anything that isn't Nintendo. Personally I've been playing a bunch of Genesis games last year and this one. This year alone I've beaten The Revenge of Shinobi, McDonalds Treasure Land Adventure, Batman: The Video Game, Jewel Master, Aladdin, Moonwalker, Cadash, Taz-Mania, Jurassic Park and Rampage Edition, Outrun 2019, and somehow made it through the other side of Ecco the Dolphin. The Genesis is easily my favorite console, and I still have many games to play and beat on it.
>>9752617>The dreamcast is a port machineand a good one>playing arcade games on vga at 60fps> with no real gameslmao retard

>>9754719Isn't that the SHMUP with the giant penis boss?
>>9754732Yeah. Second to the last stage as you go down a flesh tube.
Shopping for a model 1 - What's the best way to tell if it has the VA6 soundchip, and which revision of it it has if it it does? Not talking about the VA7 or 8 btw, I means the 6.2, 6.x etc.
Streets of Rage 1Streets of rage 2Some sonic or shinobi probably

How much should I be looking to spend on one with the good soundchip + cords and at least one controller (preferably the 6 button but no hate for the 3, those are cool too)Planning on getting that and an Everdrive, open to recommendations on that as well.
