What are your thoughts on the Sega Genesis/MegaDrive? This was the first console that really got me into gaming. Everything about it was fantastic. I was fortunate enough to own one growing up and then later on in life got another from a family friend. Now i play my genesis cartridges on a RetroN5. However, I'm still a little upset I got rid of most of my original carts from my childhood. I had quite the collection. I used to spend hours on Streets of Rage or Mortal Kombat II, or Michael Jackson's Moonwalker as a kid.

What about you? Did you own a Sega Genesis/Megadrive growing up? What was your favorite game?

We used to own a Sega Genisis when I was around 7 or 8. I enjoyed playing the Sonic games and of course The Lion King :D I don't even think I beat either of them though lol We also used to have a Sega Dreamcast but I had never played it before.

I absolutely LOVE the Dreamcast. I still play mine semi regularly today :) It's my favorite console of all time and I get excited when new titles come out for it. :) Yes the Dreamcast still gets new games made for it! :D

I wasn't aware of that!  :huh: That said love the Dreamcast. Got one mostly for House of the Dead 2. Plus I adored Grandia II on it.

Anyway, I love the Sega Genesis. Well, mostly love the attachment, the Sega CD. Purely for two games: Lunar the Silver Star and Lunar Eternal Blue.

We had both when I was in middle school, and I loved them. Sadly some years back ours got trashed in a flood. I kept on the look out for one for years. Finally a couple years ago I found one, so its my pride and joy.

As for the regular Sega Genesis I always loved the Sonic games. Also this Tiny Toons one that plays like a Sonic game.

I got Lunar Silver Star Story Complete & Lunar 2: Eternal Blue: Complete on the original Playstation. I remember when they were released, I called up my local EB Games every day until both were in stock. :)

A fellow Lunar fan?! Those are rare to find! XD I'm a HUGE Lunar fan. I think one of my prized possessions I've collected is keychains of Alex and Althena which I paid $30 each for. A lot but their rare and they have stands like mini figures! Plus I have all the novels and manga. And various soundtracks.

I have those too. My mom had picked up Lunar Silver Star Story Complete. I kinda took ownership of it. XD As for Lunar 2 I got that for Christmas including a Ghaleon hand puppet. XD Those boxsets were really awesome though. I think the first Lunar was the one that differed the most to the original. The 2nd had changes too, but not nearly as much I feel. I love them all and try to keep my Sega Genesis happy by keeping it plugged in and charged. Its my baby!
