Why did people like Sega consoles?
Posted 18 July 2012 - 10:49 PM
What good games did early Sega consoles have? Obviously there was Sonic and Phantasy Star but even these games were arguably inferior to their Nintendo counterparts (Mario and one of the million amazing RPGs on the SNES).
SOMEONE HELP ME WHY DID PEOPLE LIKE SEGA WHY WAS THIS EVEN A THING

It's like systems nowadays, better graphics, better sound = better games. But you look at the Sony and Xbox games, and they are all kind of the same thing. It really depends on what you grew up on, that's the system you'd probably like better.

So it seems like that Sega had the graphics and big names at first, and then focused on pumping out a lot of pretty good (but not timeless) games. That part was especially interesting, it probably made for some excellent competition. That might be why there are so many good SNES games in part. It would be nice if something like that happened again, but it doesn't really seem like it will.
I really wonder why Sega made so many new consoles and add-ons, though. Was there even that big of a difference in between them?

Plus Sega was worth it just for Sonic :3

I can name a few classic games on Dreamcast, at least, but not enough that would make me buy the console.

Sega's really only truly good system was the Genesis, and the Dreamcast was alright. What I would like to see, though, is if they make it back into the console business.
I would be sad if they did that. If anything SEGA always did a great job on exclusives back then, and I'd be disappointed if I had to buy two systems in order to play the games I like. a Nintendo, a SEGA, and possibly a Sony.

On top of Sonic, which was hands down the biggest reason -- much like CoD or Madden are system sellers today -- there were a lot of arcade ports, the Mortal Kombat version that had blood, Vectorman, Golden Axe, etc.
Pick up any of the "Genesis greatest hits" and you'll find some great titles.
After Genesis, it's all a blur of regret and misfortunate for pretty much anyone who bought a Saturn/CD, though there were good games on them, nothing revolutionary to gaming. Then again, the Virtual Boy and Satellaview weren't exactly great sequels either.
All the way up until the Dreamcast, and if you're asking what was good about the Dreamcast, you are insane. It was by far the best console of its time to date. Online play, great hardware, innovative technology (VMUs! DLC!), standardized hardware/media formats. It was a god amongst consoles.
Unfortunately, it used no DRM, and that killed it, as anyone with any basic CD burner could play any game for free. It was literally too good to survive.
Oh, Dreamcast, how I miss ye.

I even had a Sega CD with my Mega Drive. :v
But yeah the Mega Drive had a ton of amazing games for it, such as Streets of Rage 1, 2 and 3, Golden Axe, Revenge of Shinobi, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Return of Shredder (Which had two graphical styles you could choose from on the Mega Drive, Anime & Comic) and there was the Rocket Night Adventures and and Tiny Toons I remember playing that on the Mega Drive too, yeah there were loads of Mega Drive games I played back in the day on my Mega Drive, but yeah I had a Mega Drive long before I got a SNES, but when I got my first SNES I fell in love with it, that thing had some amazing games, I remember playing Super Mario Kart for the first time, but back in the 90's I was a huge Sega Fan. :D
Obviously I don't really need to mention the Sonic games since we've all probably played them, but they also had some great 8 bit Sonic titles for the Master System, a good one was Sonic Chaos.
Over here in the UK the Master System was VERY popular, they kept selling games for the console long after the Mega Drive (Genesis) had come out, infact I think both the Mega Drive and Master System were more popular in the UK (And maybe most of Europe) than the NES and SNES was, but I don't know the sales figures for the UK and Europe so I can't be 100% percent sure on that. :v
TMNT: Return of the Shredder (Called The Hyperstone Heist in the US) was the best TMNT games ever, in my opinion.
