My 20 Favorite Sega Genesis Games

In my younger days, there were only three systems that I played video games on. It was during this time that I believe they made not only the best games, but the most enjoyable. They may not have had the greatest graphics, but that isn't what makes a game fun in the first place. But that's just me. First and foremost, for me, was the Sega Genesis. These were the ones I grew up enjoying the most. There are some others I would have added if I had found them on IMDB, such as MEGA TURRICAN (1995), ROCKET KNIGHT ADVENTURES (1993), MUTANT LEAGUE FOOTBALL (1993), KID CHAMELEON (1992), and GHOULS 'N GHOSTS (1989).
