Games 1-10

Alex Kidd: Before Sonic this was the console's mascot of choice. Shoot, run and jump in this side scrolling game that has non stop blasting in each level.

Alien Storm: Eight levels of destroying aliens that are invading planet Earth. Three characters to choose from and the goal is to blast past your foes to get to the main alien on the Mothership.

Altered Beast: This game came with the first Genesis console. You play as a man who fights zombies and other creatures in the night in the graveyard using kicks and punches. As the game progresses you power up to a fireball shooting werewolf.

Beyond Oasis: This RPG allows you to play as Prince Ali and use weapons such as cross bows and saber swords while you traverse the desert using clues you locate and a map.

Bonanza Brothers: One or two players can fight their way through rounds by defeating thugs with karate skills and weapons. One on one tournament style or story mode can be chosen.

Columns: Sega's answer to Nintendo's Tetris. One or two players. Instead of shapes the game uses different jewels such as rubies.

Comix Zone: A somewhat strange game in which you fight in a side scrolling game fighting criminals but the catch is that your inside of a comic book.

Decap Attack: Not one of the better games on this list. Play as a mummy defeating other like creatures in this simple game.

Mean Bean Machine: Put the beans into the cooker to complete the meal. Follow instructions and there is a time limit.

Dynamite Headdy: Your player is a puppet with a detachable head. Use the head to defeat enemies combatants.

Golden Axe 3

Games 11-20

Ecco the Dolphin: Swim as a dolphin in the ocean fighting sharks and other sea life while saving the day.

Ecco Tides of Time: Continue as Ecco in this sequel that has better graphics and game play than the first.

E Swat: You are a swat member with the police and you use weapons and a cop car to catch criminals and win the day.

Fatal Labyrinth: This game has 30 levels and an evil dragon to beat at the end of the game. Weapons such as an axe or a sword are used in action.

Flicky: As Flicky the bird who can not fly, you must save baby birds from a hungry cat on the prowl.

Gain Ground: The game has 50 levels and the goal is to destroy the enemy while saving hostages during a set time limit.

Golden Axe 1, 2 & 3: Golden Axe allows the character to assume the role of a sword swinging man or woman or you can choose the axe wielding warrior dwarf. Each warrior has magic and you battle enemies from the ancient past.

Kid Chameleon: Use portals to time warp wherever you want to go and change characters by wearing a mask. A bizarre but rather addicting game.

Games 21-30

Phantasy Star 2, 3 & 4: This series is considered one of the best RPG's to ever come along and the sound effects and story line are great. Set up the battle and one of the four characters will execute it for you.

Ristar: You play as a star with long, stretching arms that are used to attack foes. Ristar slings opponents towards him with his freakish arms and then uses his head to knock them silly.

Shining Force 1 & 2: Role Playing game with sword fighting. Think of a more sinister version of The Legend of Zelda. It is a single player game with excellent sound effects.

Shining in the Darkness: The first role playing game for the Genesis Shining in the Darkness is played in a 3D dungeon with enemies at every turn. Several sequels were spawned from this title.

Shinobi 3: The final of the Shinobi games. Play as a Ninja that uses karate and ninja skills as well as swords and throwing stars to get the job done.

Sonic 3D Blast: The first Sonic game to use 3D and instead of side scrolling the game has an isometric view. The final Sonic game produced for the Sega Genesis and possibly the best.

Sonic Spinball: A pinball game with Sonic as the ball that is shot all over the place.

Games 31-40

Sonic the Hedgehog 1, 2 & 3: Sega's response to Mario was Sonic. Instead of coins you collect rings, etc. Sonic is fast and you spin around loops all the time. Fast paced fun.

Sonic and Knuckles: Sonic has a partner this time named Knuckles. In two player mode Sonic and Knuckles can play at the same exact time.

Streets of Rage 1, 2 & 3: Fight in one or two player mode fighting bad guys through 8 levels. Each level has a boss. Besides kicking, punching, elbows and knees, your fighter can use weapons such as bats, pipes and knives.

Super Thunder Blade: Take control of a helicopter in a third person viewpoint shooting missiles and machine guns at the enemy. The graphics are poor but the game itself is fun.

Vectorman 1 and 2: As a robot Vectorman shoots ray guns and lasers on his way to saving humans on earth from a deadly machine called Warhead.

Unlockable Extra Games 1-5

Golden Axe Warrior: This is an 8 bit version of the original arcade version of Golden Axe that was scaled down for the Sega Master System.

Altered Beast: This version of Altered Beast was released on the 8 bit Sega Master System. It is identical to the Genesis version except the graphics are not as detailed.

Shinobi: The original Shinobi for the Master System featured a ninja fighting with stealth, skill and some cool weapons.

Phantasy Star: The first Phantasy Star can be unlocked which allows you to have all four.

Congo Bongo: Simply put Sega made this game to compete with Donkey Kong and failed miserably. In this game a safari hunter must try to catch a gorilla while jumping and ducking objects being thrown his way.
