I don't understand why it gets overlooked so much. It's a great action game, one of my favorites from that generation.

the other day i found out the director of the first 3 castlevania games got demoted because of low sales and eventually left the industry because of it. konami management has always been assholes apparently.

Isn't CV one of those series that was always bigger internationally than in its home territory? They could have been annoyed at the JP sales, and of course they also could just be inconceivably evil and stupid, this is Konami we're talking about. :doge
Hi

yup, as far as i know it was international sales keeping the series afloat, especially in the iga years. but for those nes games, it seemed that management was mad other games weren't selling as well as that shitty ninja turtles title lol

I'm hoping for Rocketknight because of this thread, though I'm not seeing it happen realistically. "Realistically" I want to see Aladdin, Monster World 4, Outrunners, Musha and, if you must pick more well whored-out ports, Phantasy Star 2, Sonic 3/K and Shadow Dancer.

There are definitely some shit tier Genesis games.

Budokan, Dark Castle, X-Perts, Fantasia are absolute dogshit... The games you mentioned are lightyears better...

A lot of the first wave of EA games were total garbage.  Bad ports of PC games that weren't great to begin with.  Sword of Sodan is easily one of the worst games ever.

Wait what. I played the shit out of Altered Beast in the arcades and at home as a kid and I remember Ecco being good?

Yeah, that's me.

So wait, Altered Beast is actually a bad game? That game was almost as popular as Mortal Kombat 1 in the arcades. I can pretty much recall the first stage from memory all these years later. RISE FROM YOUR GRAVES.

It's not one of my all-time favorites or anything, but it was fun to play back then.  I wouldn't go shitting on someone for liking it.

I believe you that it's a bad game, I'm just surprised because I've never seen it mentioned before but then I don't follow a lot of retro threads.

I feel like when you're a kid there's no such thing as good or bad games, especially in the early gaming eras. You just played what was there and if it was bad and bullshit you got used to it. I mean I remember the original Ninja Turtles 1 on NES being kinda bullshit especially in the water stages but I have no idea if it was a good or bad game.

Now I gotta go look up why Ecco is bad. In my 20 year+ memories I always thought Ecco was like the pioneer for all these ocean based action adventure exploration games like Aquaria. Next you're gonna tell me Toe Jam & Earl was bad too.

Bruh if you were a kid and played Judge Dread on SNES and didn't think it was a bad game, you were probably abused

Rocket Knight is great, would be a great inclusion. You always wonder why they never chase porting it, but hey, Konami. They did have that Climax re-do a while back, but the reviews were so middling I never even bothered.

Totally agree that back in the day we would kinda live with bad games, adjust to jank, whatever.

That said, being a nerd I generally knew what was supposed to be bad, but there were multiple occasions where (usually licensed) garbage would come out and sucker wide swathes of either the kids or their parents, and there went several weeks/months gaming budget. TMNT NES was such hot trash, that game somehow diminished multiple weekends for young me cause I couldn't get away from it. Everyone I knew had it, and everyone was stuck at like the exact same sewer part.

The Sunsoft Batman game was the same way, ET didn't teach the industry squat.

*edit* not sure why image broke.

Hi

A lot of Genesis games that keep making these collections are overrated trash.

Shit like Golden Axe. The only Golden Axe worth playing is 3. 2 on a good day.

Too many Genesis "classics" are considered classics purely because of their style which was unique at the time such as Vectorman. Take that game apart and  you get an average game but it's considered a "classic". Another example is probably Comix Zone. Great style, but what a chore to play.

I won't even touch Sonic on this post.

Too many Genesis "classics" are only that because of style and not substance.

Super Nintendo makes Genesis its bitch. It hurts to admit it. I was a Genesis kid growing up, but a part of being an adult is admitting when you're wrong.

That's the best thing about this current MD Collection: the games they're picking are of the actual good games on the system. Not the required "classics" that are actually trash games.

Altered Beast I wouldn't say was trash, but it wasn't good either. The better controls/fun were saved for when you were a beast. It was great as an arcade game, it was always full.

It's iconic cause everyone had it due to being a pack-in.

Ecco Sega CD owned even more.

Sorry, I was a kid who got one game a year. I never had a Sega CD. I loved Sega, but didn't like Sega that much. Sorry to burst your bubble. Never played Ecco CD or any Sega CD game beyond Sonic CD (trash) and Snatcher (great).

I hope Wily Wars is on this. Is that confirmed?

edit:

And tbh, there's a certain segment of people that DO consider Vectorman a classic. Search any best of Genesis list and it almost always shows up.

I just googled and found this.

Yeah, I'd was on that 1-2 games a year thing Cindi is talking about and I played Batman NES and TMNT NES for months along with Megaman 1-4. I still remember the pain of Batman NES.

The worst case of "I can only get 1 game a year" and ending up with a dud was Earthworm Jim 2.

I love most of the game and then you get to this stage...



I was lucky I never ended up with anything worse than this. I'm very lucky because Bubsy interested me a lot back in the day.
