As I'm sure you're aware, "Mega Drive" is the proper name for the console- it was only named the Genesis in the states because Sega couldn't secure the rights to the name Mega Drive there.

To be fair, I never owned a SNES, and so I can't really objectively compare the two consoles because I get all weak at the kness at the mere mention of the Mega Drive, whereas I have no real nostalgia for the SNES.

The SNES had some really tremendous games, but the Mega Drive had more great games, in my opinion. All of those delicious EA carts - with the funny yellow bit at the top - pretty much win it for the Mega Drive all on their own.

That is a crazy thing to say. I don't know many people who think the Genesis had better games than the SNES. Donkey Kong Country, Super Mario World, Super Metroid, Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, Mario Kart, Kirby, Super Contra, Mother, Mega Man, Castlevania (besides Bloodlines obvi), Secret of Mana, Zelda, and way more. If we were looking strictly at RPGs the SNES crushes the Genesis which basically only had two good RPG franchises.

That's an impressive list. I could list a whole load of great Mega Drive exclusives as well, but perhaps I was exaggerating by saying that the Mega Drive had more good games than the SNES. Both consoles had great exclusives going for them.

Fair enough. But if you say Sonic is better than Mario I'm going to murder you. Just sayin.

No, I was also a Mario man myself. I remember the old Mario Vs Sonic wars in the games magazines in the early 90s, and I always thought that Mario would destroy Sonic. I mean, he can shoot fireballs fer Christ's sake. I do remember the first time that I saw the original Sonic running, though, and I could hardly believe what I was seeing. It was the most graphically-impressive game that I had ever seen, and it was that game that made me want a Mega Drive in the first place.

Mortal Kombat is always the example of why the Genesis was better than the SNES. That, and 2D Sonic being better than 2D Mario at the time.

If I were to make this argument for the 16-bit age like everyone else, I'd take Game Boy Advance. You practically get the combined SNES/Genesis experience plus you can take it anywhere.

Anyway, I'd probably take Microsoft Xbox as my favorite console.

Mortal Kombat series was on the SNES, and none of the 2D Sonic games come close to the quality of Super Mario World. You're a nutter.

Mortal Kombat 1 was better on the Genesis not MK II.

If you were around during those days, you knew MK on Genesis was the better game because it had blood and didn't censor fatalities.

I'm not sure who you are directing that at, but I agreed that MK1 was better on the Genesis.

Sonic 1 and 2 were great games for their time, although I don't think that either of them are as good as Mario 2, 3 or SMW. Mario 1 hasn't stood the test of time as well as its successors, although the basic gameplay is still arguably superior to that found in Sonic.

And 16-bit Mortal Kombat was a bit gimmicky. The digitised characters didn't animate or handle too well, and the neither the SNES nor the Mega Drive ports played as well as the SF II ports. Did the SNES version still have fatalities, only without the blood?

Here's a contentious statement: the Mega Drive version of Street Fighter II was superior to the SNES version.

It had sweat instead of blood and "Fatalities." Genesis required you put in a cheat code and it unlocked the good stuff, but on SNES there was no code. For example, instead of Johnny Cage uppercutting the opponents head off, on SNES he kicked them in the torso, apparently causing a seizure cause they shook for a second or two and then fell down. Instead of ripping their head and spine off, on SNES, Subzero froze and punched them. Kano gave them a titty twister instead of ripping their heart out.. not joking.

Now that's something for the Mega Drive crowd to be jealous of!

SNES Mortal Kombat II had all the blood and fatalities and was the superior version, so huzzah.
