Excellent list and nicely done!

Only omission I can think of off hand would be Skeleton Krew by Core.

Glad you mentioned Tiny Toons Acme All Stars, that's a shockingly great game.

Tyrants was a personal favorite Genesis title of a friend and I. I can't even count the number of hours we put into that game. Best random purhase I ever made at Blockbuster.

Great list. The only thing I'd take off it would be the Trek games and combat cars, which are hot garbage, and replace them with Jewel Master, Kid Chameleon and El Viento.

But you have a lot of amazing, seldom remembered titles in this list. Nice work!

Also, Arcade Classics is pretty bad. If it's been forgotten, it's probably better that it stay that way.

Wow - what a great first post on AtariAge!

 

I honestly struggle finding things I want to play on the Genesis. It just fell into a hole for me when it was new. I wasn't playing any new video games really.

 

Nowadays, I have trouble finding games for it that hold my attention. I'm looking forward to trying some stuff on this list.
