The Weekly Five: Genesis/Mega Drive classics that deserve the retro engine treatment

SEGAbits: "Ever since SEGA announced the Sonic CD re-release running on the Retro Engine, I had a long list of retro titles that I wanted to see use the engine. Then after awhile SEGA stopped announcing titles for it, then out of the blue they announce Sonic 1 & 2 re-releases using the engine. As much as I love Sonic, there are plenty of SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive games that I would love to see running on the Retro Engine. Check out the five games I would want to get the Retro Engine treatment and what type of extras I would love to see for them." (Android, iPad, iPhone, PC, PS3, Sega, Xbox 360)

Streets of Rage 1 & 2, Golden Axe 1,2 , Road Rash (EA), Starflight (EA), Sonic 1, 2, 3 , Revenge of Shinobi

They're my favorite MegaDrive games which I would like seeing remade, but it'll probably never happen except for the Sonic games obviously.

How about some Sega CD games get the retro treatment? I do miss the Genesis (personally I liked it better than SNES and yes I did own both) however they should at least list some Sega CD games to maybe add to PSN/Live down the road. So far I bought Streets of Rage 2, Sonic 1/2/CD, and Altered Beast, Comix Zone came free with +, and I got the platinum trophy in Sonic Genesis Collection.

I also vote for a Sonic 3 and Knuckles ROM for PSN/Live, that game I would play to death like I did back in the Genesis days.

I'd love a Greatest Heavyweights remake, or even the original Evander Holy fields real deal boxing, Strider was also an excellent game back in the day

I always loved The Immortal and would love to see it revamped on a newer console. It was one of the first if not the first game to come with a warning for violent content.

The Immortal was a beast of a game!

The Retro Engine version of Sonic CD is the best one bar none. Even the music loops properly instead of just ending abruptly.
