The MegaDrive

Recommended Posts

Hi Hi , I loved the megadrive , never owned one but my mother rented one at christmas from the video shop ( oh how times have changed ) . When i first played altered beast i was well impressed , closest i had ever seen to a coin op on a tv , the sound and the graphics were awsome . The games i tried  were , Ghouls and ghost , and my favorite , mickey mouse castle of illusion . If you throw sonic in , and strider , it was one of the finest home entertainment systems .

This is how it should be ..

The Megadrive Mega was a great console in its day with many great titles like

"Streets of Rage 2"

If I was 35 years younger I would be saying "From the what Shop" and yes castle of illusion was one of the best game I ever played on it

I know you can play a lot of these games on the 360. Don't know if you can on PlayStation.

I have one of these, but no longer have a the correct tv for it.

but you can buy a mega drive (can't remember who makes them) and you can use you original carts on them.

streets of rage is my all time favourite game though.
