    SNES vs. Sega Genesis

    There doesn't seem to be a poll option, so lets just post our opinions. Only answer if you have played both.

    I have to go with the Genesis. I have played both many a-time and I can't seem to convince myself that the SNES was better. Sonic II, Street Fighter, NBA Live, it just doesn't get any better. Super Mario World was cool, but it got very frustrating and had no replay value.

    What do you think?

    SNES has better Graphics, sound, controller, game selection, play control.

    Genesis had blood in Mortal Kombat. oh and "blast processing"......

    Wow, okay.

    Street Fighter was on SNES.
    NBA Live was on SNES (Sports games back then sucked anyway).
    Sonic II: The only game you listed that was good, let alone a Genesis exclusive. And Super Mario World is known for its awesome replay value. Ever heard of speed runs?

    I had both as well and I liked SNES better. And as far as Super Mario World not having any replay value I have to disagree. I have played that game numerous times. Yes it is frustrating but it still has great replay value.

    I own both.

    The games mentioned (apart from Sonic) were on the SNES anyway, and seemed better (I know that's already been stated).

    I don't mind the megadrive as some games are pretty fun on it, but the SNES pwns it more so.

    FYI, California Games on the Mega Drive is rubbish compared to the NES version, take that anyway you like. Still a great game though.

    And basketball games, for any console, back in 92/93, were all the most frustrating things in the world. I'd sooner die.

    Since the Sega Mega Drive was my very first console, I am going to go with that one just for the sake of old times. But the SNES is also great though.

    SNES was definetly the better console. I remember my brother got the Sega and I got the SNES around the same time, and whenever a game was released for both consoles, we were always pissed if we got the Sega version. The SNES versions were just worlds better, especially the Mortal Kombats.
    Sonics 1-3 were great games, but whenever they had equal games SNES games were just that much better.
