    I don't know about genesis' in particular but usually dust doesn't hurt old consoles. Just need to give them a good clean and fire it up.

    EDIT: Oh wait a game, I thought you meant a console. No big deal, what I said should still apply nonetheless.

    No the dust eats away at the silicon on the board and corrupts the flash , JK as long as it doesn't overheat then it'd be fine :)

    If it doesn't work when you plug it in, spank someone with it. Repeat until the game runs or you don't care anymore. Works every time.

    'Dusty Genesis' would be a good name for a country singer.
