It's no secret that I enjoy playing SEGA Genesis games, so for this article, I decided to countdown my picks for the top 10 best games the Genesis had to offer. Let's get started.
#10: Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind
When it comes platforming, Bubsy just doesn't cut it. I mean seriously, Bubsy was just an attempt to out-match Sonic the Hedgehog. Bottom line Bubsy is not a good game in its own standards.
#9: Disney's Aladdin
Based upon Disney's 1992 hit film "Aladdin", the game is just your average movie based title that stays true to the movie that it's based on and yes Aladdin is a pretty tough game on the Genesis.
Although "Sparkster" is the sequel to "Rocket Knight Adventures", I just think that maybe the "Rocket Knight" series had some intense edge to it but seriously this game is good not to mention different from its SNES counterpart
#7: Michael Jackson's Moonwalker
Who's bright idea was to give Michael Jackson his own video game? Well, I don't know the answer to that question but "Michael Jackson's Moonwalker" is worth picking up if you're a fan of Michael Jackson.
#6: Sonic the Hedgehog
Of all the incredible masterpieces on the Genesis, Sonic was one of them. Sonic 1 was a very good but sometimes very tricky game, and the game proves its difficulty in the marble zone.
#5: Rocket Knight Adventures
Easily described as one of the coolest games of the 16-bit era, "Rocket Knight Adventures" was pretty much a very cool game with really good graphics, well not good compared to the graphics on the XBOX 360 but still, "Rocket Knight Adventures" is way better than its sequel, "Sparkster".
#4: Disney's Toy Story
Based on Disney's 1995 smash hit, Toy Story had everything: solid controls, an awesome soundtrack, and animation that was in fact done by PIXAR. Toy Story is without a doubt the perfect game for the #4 spot on my list.
What happens when you take a cool 1990's cartoon and turn it into a video game? You get a 2D platformer that becomes quite the thrill and adventure as you control Yakko, Wakko, & Dot through a wide range of levels.
#2: Disney's The Lion King
I never thought I would put this game on the list because it's actually not a bad game by today's standards, I mean sure the game was hard in some parts but that's what made the game fun was its challenging levels and boss fights. Not to mention that "The Lion King" was the highest grossing animated film in history until 2003 when "Finding Nemo" took the crown.
#1 Mortal Kombat
While it's no Super Smash Bros., Mortal Kombat was a fun and very hard fighting game but once you get used to it you'll be playing this game so much that your spine might fall out.
THAT's ALL FOLKS!!!!!!
