    Inspired by RAneo's thread, I'd like to hear recommendations of great megadrive/genesis games. The genesis emulator for the PSP seems to work a lot better than the SNES one so I'm playing Genesis at the moment. I'm loving reliving Another World at the moment, but have nearly finished it, so do you have any interesting and eclectic recommendations for me?

    Cheers!

    I never had a genesis as a kid, but got a bit of a chance to play catch-up lately.

    moonwalker - back when MJ wasn't such a psycho
    alisia dragoon - side-scrolling dragon action
    landstalker - isometric genesis zelda
    shadow dancer - one of my favorite shinobi games. gotta love the dog!

    gunstar is ok....but if you really want some shooter fun play alien soldier.

    treasure basically decided that levels were for kids so each level is only about 3 screens long and then you're faced with an amazing boss battle.

    I've no idea how many levels/bosses there are because i never completed it, but there are approximately loads and they get HARD.

    ...Here's my top 25 for the Genesis (series are grouped):

    Sonic the Hedgehog (1,2,3&K)
    Shining Force (1,2)
    Gunstar Heroes
    Phantasy Star (2,3,4)
    Monster World (3,4)
    Ristar
    Aladdin
    Beyond Oasis
    Castlevania Bloodlines
    Rocket Knight Adventures
    Thunder Force (3,4)
    Landstalker
    Shinobi (2,3)
    Crusader of Centy
    Contra HardCorps
    Comix Zone
    MUSHA
    Toejam & Earl
    Ecco the Dolphin (1,2)
    Streets of Rage (1,2,3)
    Vectorman (1,2)
    Dune
    Alien Soldier
    Dynamite Heady
    The Misadventures of Flink

    Sorry, but I never liked Herzog Zwei as much as Dune [​IMG]

    Best game you've probably never played on the list is Monster World 4 - it was a Japan-only release, but has been fully translated into english, and is one of the best sidescroll action-RPGs out there.

    Oh, and I'd acually recommend Gunstar above Alien Soldier, although they're both must-plays. I've beat AS almost a dozen times, and once the boss patterns are down in your head, it can get a little monotonous. I've beat GH more times than that, but the looser gameplay style keeps things more fun, plus there's the multiplayer...

    Dynamite Heady! lol

    And definately Shining Force, they were the best RPG games ever. Wait, were they RPGs? Whatever, they ruled.
