Interesting read. My first console was the SNES and I remember the big Sega vs Nintendo war of the era. Some of my mates had Mega Drive and some had SNES, pewpew.

Yeah I remember that time really well, most of my friends had the Mega Drive, but I ended up buying the SNES, I loved that console!

I also liked Mega Drive, the only thing that I didn't like about it, was the controller, to me it was horrible!

The Genesis was built to last mine still works after 20 years ..... playing Gunstar Heroes!!!! The SNES only lasted five years .... the NES one year.... my Sega Saturn still works today

I still have my Genesis, even have the Sonic the Hedgehog cartridge and case that came with it. Unfortunately my only controller seems to want to permanently go to the left, I'm sure I can find some way to fix it...I'm just to lazy.

I loved the design aesthetic of the whole Genesis platform, but HATED the controllers.
