I mean, each person must have different Top 2 as there were so many awesome games.
I can't name my Top 2 myself! Though I know half of it! hehe

If you say it would be 'everyone' (90%) Top Ten, I can go with that.


I don't think I said top 2 mate. That's not what I meant anyway. I agree, there were so many great games for that amazing console that I would have to think very long and hard about my own to 10.

Aye. Sonic never clicked for me so I didn't bother getting myself my own copy for my Genesis, even. It may be a classic but it doesn't really appeal to me from any of the ones I've played.

Now you have. Widen your circle a bit.
And you can't pull your 'new games' argument with me, as Shining Force 1 and Kid Chameleon are my favorite games of all time, period. Both of which are Genesis games. I personally find Kid Chameleon to be a strictly better and more interesting platformer than Sonic.


I don't need to "widen my circle", don't take that condescending tone with me. When you consider that Sonic 1&2 are some of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful games of the era, when you consider the unrivalled pop culture impact and the fact that it's clearly the most famous Megadrive game, when you Google "best Megadrive games" and see if you can find a list without a Sonic game in the top 10. Is it really such a big deal that I'm surprised if someone doesn't include it in their top 10? Like I said I accept ther's going to be an exception and you're entitled to your opinion but be aware that you're in the minority pal.
Also, I have no idea what this "new games" argument you refer to is sorry.

I’d have to agree with tyadran, while I love Sonic... Kid chameleon is the better game because of the multiple forms you can take on that is required to finish a level. It varies the gameplay a bit.

As much as we keep getting off topic from Shining Force, I'd like to add that my favorite Genesis platformer is probably Sparkster; unless you count Ranger X, but I feel like that game really qualifying as a platformer could go in either direction.

Flashback was an amazing platformer too.

I like the earlier platformers too.
