Well, I took quite a chunk out of my savings for an X-Box 360 t'other day by purchasing myself both a Megadrive and a Snes, with a few games for £30 each. I used to have a megadrive which broke, but never owned a SNES. Now this thread may come down to pure nostalgia deciding the winner but what does everyone think? Personally, having being brought up on SEGA, I chose Megadrive :P:. Just such a shame they failed in the later generations .

Coulda just bought a decent modern console instead. Retro's all well and good but the new consoles are just....better.

The SNES have so many classic games; Chrono Trigger, Mega Man VIII (is that the right number?), Mortal Kombat II and many, many more. It's bitchin'.

I've never actually played a Megadrive, which may have affected my choice between the two. :P
#9
I had a Mega Drive, it was the best Cartridge System, bar the N64 which is the greatest console ever.
#10
What the hell is a Mega Drive?

SNES FTW.

Playing these things brings a tear to my eye and makes me want to not grow up even more.

DeSean isn't a true Nintendo fan boy, he was willing to give up his Wii for a bit of dope.


Nor is Smokey Amp, who doesn't even own a Wii.

oh my god i had completely forgotten about streets of rage. i used to love that game when i was about 6.

yeh megadrive though.
#17
Megadrive! Still got mine upstairs....All the Sonic series (except 3D...that one sucked), Streets of Rage, a load of Marvel games, Toejam and Earl!!! and Comix Zone! I must have at least 50 games...

Mind you, Mario was awesome...and so was the Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles Game!

SNES, but only by a small margin. Both were great consoles with huge game libraries.

Yeah, but I didn't, so fuck you. I voted SNES (naturally). I got one when I was 4, and my brother got a Megadrive. He is a Sega man, I am a Nintendo man. Look who came out on top .

EDIT: Nice avartar Cal. As afr as I know, I was the first person on UG to sport a Zelda avartar. *1-up fanboy points*

Megadrive never had Zelda! Or Harvest Moon, come to think of it.

But I haven't played a Megadrive. In fact, though I thought I knew all of the Sega systems, apparently I didn't. I'd never heard of the Megadrive.

And wasn't Streets of Rage on the SNES, too?

Either way, I vote the SNES, since I liked that better than every Sega system ever released(though the Dreamcast was pretty damn awesome).

Mortal Kombat was on the SNES as well.

But I forgot the most awesomest game of that time: Turtles... Lost... In... Time...

Yah, put that in your pipe and smoke it, it's got to be one of the absolute top games of that era!
#26
I have had both but the GENESIS broke. Not megadrive dammit. The Genesis was annoying the cables at the back always got loose, and at one point it stopped working completely, but i loved playing streets of rage and sonic.

The snes on the other hand, is still working 'til this very day. ZELDA, MARIO, STREET FIGHTER, CRONO TRIGGER, MORTAL KOMBAT, FINAL FANTASY, MEGAMAN, SUPER DOUBLE DRAGON! FUCKIN PWNED

You could get Mortal Kombat for the SNES. All those other games suck. Sonic only had a few good games, and all the Sonic games now are absolute wank. The Mario saga is still going strong.

ME FTW!

Shit, this takes me back. I'd have to say SNES overall. Streets of Rage did ****ing rock though.

As you could get street fighters for the megadrive. And I think we all know how bad any 3D attempt at Sonic was, however IMO classic Sonic is much better than classic Mario.

Super Mario Kart, Super Mario Bros. 3 and Yoshi's Island are some of the best Mario games ever created. You're allowed to disagree with me, but you would be wrong.

Never played SNES, only NES. I was raised on Sega though so it's natural I choose that. I'm thinking about buying both consoles off eBay when I've saved up a bit of EMA though.

I do not disagree with you, I think that Super Mario Bros. 3 is my 2nd favourite Mario just behind Mario 64, however I still prefer Sonic 2, Sonic & Knuckles and especially Sonic 1 for Master System.

SNES, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter 2 and Starfox all kicked ass.

My father owned one, we used to sit on the floor int he front room arguing over who got to be player one. it was always my brother, he's always thought men to be more important. Asshole.

But yeah, I go with the SNES.

The power to feel with others give.
