Triverse writes, "Believe it or not, back in the day arcades were a big thing. For years, it was generally held that if you wanted that arcade experienece at home you got a NES. That was till Sega released the Sega Genesis in North America along with a slew of arcade titles that were closer to the originals than the NES could reproduce. Forgotten Worlds was one of those arcade games that you could not get on the NES. Sega were seemingly addicted to licensing out their arcade games to Tengen for play on the NES around this time (something they eventually stopped)."
