Completed Shining Force 2 over 20 times at the very least! Yet I'm still excited every single time I start a new game. It's truly brilliant.
I've never even heard of Gunstar Heroes
I loved thunder force but some how forgot it’s name and always thought it was an snes game and couldn’t find it, thank you for bring it back
nhl 94 was great, but mutant league hockey was better.
games on the thumbnail? thanks in advance
No xmen? Golden axe, batman returns, light crusaders? 🥺
2 sonic games? Kid chameleon, contra hard corps, zombies ate my neighbors, tnmt hyperstone heist could’ve taken the place of sonic 3 for sure
>No Rocket Knight
SNES drunk pls
Oh man. I'm nearly incapacitated with nostalgia.
I loved Shining Force II 🙂
For me, #1 is Shining Force 2 followed closely by Dynamite Headdy.
including the sequel that made the gunstar heroes, the game boy gunstar super heroes has a gameplay mechanic very similar to the alien soldier and also the movement of the game!
Shinobi III is your fourth favorite Genesis game. Where is your review of it?
Where's Wondey Boy 3? 🙁
'Laughter' in Phantasy Star IV is one of the best boss themes out there.
Never even heard of no 1 lol
road rash 2 is one of my favorites. i still play it today.
I actually have the original Gunstar heroes cartridge full with booklet. it fetches a pretty penny on ebay. have had it since forever and even though I am not a collector. that game is probably the most awesome game ever. along with sunset riders for the SNES it is probably my favorite Shoot em up.
Alien soldier who was one of the best games ever
I agree with the list
wow first time i agree to a list. But ffs, sonic? Boring game….There is better platformgames then that.
You nailed it with Shining Force 2 and Pirates Gold. Both are some of the most re-playable games ever. Good taste man!
Golden axe and altered Beast was the best game ever
NHL 94 was on the SNES
Streets of Rage 2 changed my life
Gunstar Heroes Slaps
THANK YOU…..for recognizing Gunstar Heroes for the awesomeness it truly is.
Crusader centy should have been on this list tbh
No GoldenAxe? 🤔
Nice list. Why doesn’t anyone ever mention Star control? Multiplayer was the best.
great countdown of games, well done sir
Comix zone, boogerman
Excellent! Agree with the list. Well done
Man, Shinobi III was one of, possibly favorite, games on the Genesis. I remember beating it a ton. I got a Genesis mini, and I can’t get past the third level lol. Funny how we used to beat these games a lot, but now, they whoop our asses.
As for a shoot em up, my brother and I played Biohazard Battle a lot. It was fun as hell, had great boss fights, and the graphics were incredible for the time.
Aw no Comix Zone 🙁
Revenge of shinobi > shinobi 3
Sonic 3 or Sonic 3 & Knuckles?
it would be great if you make a review for gunstar super heroes for gba
Have a deep love for Shinning Force 2
Damn right Shinobi III was on this list! That game was therapy for me back in the day.
My personal favorite was Chakan: The Forever Man
not a single road rash entry on the list? I probably spent more time playing that game than any other geneis game.
Was NHL 94 what Banky and Holden were playing in Chasing Amy?
Golden Axe and Dune : Battle for Arakis are great too 🙂
omg only stupid games in this list
where is toe jam & earl?
and so many unique games that are really unique not just one more piece of something
I was thinking “no X-Men 2 Clone Wars?” And then you come through with Gunstar Heroes and totally redeem yourself 😂
What the hell kind of a list is that? NBA live 95, NBA Jam, Altered Beast, Golden Axe, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter 2? NBA Jam by itself shits on every game you mentioned except Sonic
Omg no Strider, Ghouls and Ghosts or Revenge of Shinobi?
