Top 10 Sega Genesis Gamesloganruckmanman
The Top Ten
Sonic is on this list 4 times. These games were the first games you could and still name off the top of you head. But when you want to pick on sonic you just say sonic 06
Not just best Genesis game, but best game Sega has ever made in the existance of that company
So much better then any sonic game. Except for sonic adventure 2 of course. - PotBellyPup
A true, classic (and might I add, not terribly violent) video game. - ICaderV 8 Comments
Along with Sonic CD, the first 3 Sonic games on the Genesis are the best things about the Sonic franchise.
This game should be at the top of the list.

How are Sonic 1 and 2 above this?! This game surpasses both of them by miles. Don't get me wrong, I like Sonic 1, and I really like Sonic 2, and I respect other people's opinions, but I just don't get why 1 and 2 are above this. This game has 3 characters that play differently, but are still fun to play as, 12 zones that are all huge, unique music in each act, and the music is overall better than Sonic 1 or 2.
This is sonic 3 and sonic and knuckles put into one game. It has all the levels with the data select so that your progress will be saved even in the sonic and knuckles stages, has all three characters able to play all of those stages, and it has an exclusive super form to this game to boot! It has all that is good about the two games it combines and more.
I love this game it's one of my very favorites
GOAT for genesis bar noneV 1 Comment
This is basically what I like to call the definitive Sonic game! It has great gameplay, easy-to-learn controls, outstanding music, and the graphics are awesome for the time! This should be #1!
Sonic 3 is the best out of all the Sonic games, it looks better than the new Sonic games and the very old sonic games.
You can actually save on this Sonic. - loganruckmanman
Me and my siblings played this for hours on my stepdads old genesis. This game has incredible graphics for the time, amazing gameplay, a killer soundtrack and, has given me plenty of memories.V 3 Comments
You can play this game for hours. You'll never get bored. NEVER! - HeavyDonkeyKong
This one had the blood code that's why I bought it
An amazing arcade port, and one of the best fighting games on the system.
All mortal Lombard are fun
Fun entertaining and underrated
Sega should remake this game.
The best game ever made!
Oh wow I never got into rpgs back in the 16 bit era, I discovered snes rpgs later after I discovered Zelda on Gameboy and worked backwards to the classics.
I hadn't heard much about sega rpgs prior to dreamcast so I mistakenly thought there weren't any quality titles. I was so wrong. currently working on my first sf2 play through. I love this game, the story, the gameplay and presentation are absolutely amazing
There is simply not a bad thing that I can say about this game. Everything is perfect. The graphics look like anime and fit very well with the game. There isn't a single character in this game that I don't love, and yes that includes the villains. The characters look awesome and have some depth to them. The first main villain kills off a character that you actually care about (looking at you FF7). The soundtrack is memorable and doesn't get annoying. The story is amazing and is about as well paced as a story can be. I could talk about how great this game is until Ristar gets a sequel. I stand by this game as one of the best games ever made along with ocarina of time which I can say something bad about, *cough* water temple. This game is absolutely perfect. If you ever do anything, you should play this game.
This game was nothing like Donkey Kong Country. Vectorman is a third-person shooter, and a very slick one at that. It's a shame this video game franchise fell too quickly.
This is Sega's Donkey Kong Country, except with shooting and futuristic settings.
This game is an epic classic. The best and most beautiful game on the Sega Genesis.
This game is super fun and was groundbreakingV 1 Comment
It's a fun game and sonic the hedghog 2 sucks - ecool553
Urrrgh... do I have to? - ICader
This one is a bit different but still really good in comparison to any of the others
as good as any SNES castlevania except dracula x. - alucard
The first mk game was great but this one made this franchise EPIC! True innovation for that time! Oh and my lovely Kitana was introduced! Hehe
Why do people prefer Modern Sonic games over this true masterpiece? It's just pure awesome! Perfect graphics, music composed by Michael Jackson, anticipating levels, cute characters, easy controls, very fun gameplay, this game will be perfect no matter what. I love this list, Loganruckmanman!
Best Genesis game ever! I still don't believe this game was released for Sega genesis, the environments, areas, effects and game engine is just perfect and better than all other genesis games! Best ever!
I would vote Sonic 3 and knuckles but that's two games! Gunstar heroes is a magnificent shoot 'em up by treasure with so many rereleases that plants vs. Zombies'd be jealous! - Thepenguinking2
This game is BADASS
Thank You Treasure, you're awesome
I like it -_-V 1 Comment
Truly a gem, should be above Comix Zone and Phantasy Star II. One question, where is Ristar?
One of the best platformers ever. Still waiting for Treasure to make a sequel.
This game should be in the top 5
If you like platformers, play this. You will not be dissapointed
What the hell?! Streets of Rage wasn't even in the list. I had to put it down. For God sake people what did you grew up with? Streets of Rage is the mad notes
Streets of rage crushed the genre and the sequels made super Nintendo fans jealous!
A classic game with an amazing soundtrack.
Such a good gameV 1 Comment
Way better than the Super Nintendo port (And that's coming from someone prefers Super Nintendo)
Amazing thanks whoever put this game here! Love this game and play it ever time a need a refresher on the old days and how good old games are.
This game is my favorite, it's one of my favorite classic adventure games and the story of the game is great.
A beautiful, enchanting game. Until you need air- than it is hella stressful!
Love this GAME! It used to be the pack in game before sonic
My ass is altered
One of the best pieces of MJ merch. An MJ video game!
Sweet controls and excellent mechanics. The cartoony style is lovely and levels are engaging. Deserves to be high on this list and is severely underrated. - Maplestrip
Amazing soundtrack, One that id listen to after playing. Amazing gameplay that is super unique and awesome level design. - Acdcdanny
One of the ONLY good Sonic rip offs ever made.
An amazing fun Sports title, with lots of extras and awesome baskets to score.
Should be #1
I got a Sega Genisis ( the new version by AT Games that has 80 built in games and small enough to be the controller) for Christmas, and this is my favorite game so far. This is coming from someone who only got to level two you know. My only complaint is when I ran out of continues on level two I was scent back to level one but I am fine with that. - Skullkid755
Most underrated game in gaming history. Amazing gameplay, tight controls, AMAZING soundtrack, and overall the funnest game I've ever played.
Unique for a platformer. Lighthearted, fun and challenging.
A 3d version of Ristar would be incredible.
One of the best brawlers ever, it's iconic, but 1 still has a better soundtrack and Adam. Still all improvements came to light in streets of rage 2, short of the soundtrack and Adam.
Can't believe this is not in the top 10. When you think of the Genesis, Streets of Rage should be one of the first series to come to mind. This was the pinnacle of the series!
I am shocked this is so low. Everything from the characters and fluid animation to the addictive soundtrack hits the mark and makes it a firm favourite of mine. - Entranced98
Streets of Rage 1 & 2 need to be higher up on this list...V 4 Comments
This is a great improvement over the original. Better music, graphics, levels and you only hear that annoying screaming sound when you die. Plus you can play easy mode, normal or difficult. This should be rated above the original.
THIS GAME POSSESSES ME I PLAY ALL DAY ALL NIGHT MY VISION IS STARTING TO DECREASE AND I'm BREATHING MORE HEAVILY MY CHEST KILLS BUT I STILL PLAY IT RELIGIOUSLY
Best fighting game one the system!
Very good shot em up game that needs more praise. Only the rich people can afford this.
HOW IS THIS SO LOW? Amazing and super fun game, must play for genesis/mega drive owners
Fun but hard pinball game
Before the PS1, this is where you killed zombies
Wish this was on Sega classics for the ps4
Better than the arcade version and the best action-platform ever made beside Shinobi III
This game can really get addictive. Comix Zone is above this? Are you serious? I've played this on the PSP and the PS2 and compared to comix zone it had glitches. My favourite characters are Akira and Kage. What are yours?
This is a beast game and you get to have lots of power ups but I find it kind of weird how they say die when the enemies actuall die and you get bosses that are bald which is really weird cause when they die they have a spas attack
