How do you pick just one? Almost all of them hold a special place for me, but the first one I ever played was Golden Axe so I may pick that one if forced.

Sonic 2, it's just a gem of a game all the way to the last boss. Whenever I see it on a portable screen like the PSP I get that "I'm in the future" feeling, it still impresses me to this day.

Atomic Runner. Actually better than the arcade.

For me its a toss up between Wayne Gretzky Hockey and Evander Hollyfields Real Deal Boxing. If I had to choose, would go for Evander Hollyfield as loved the combos you could throw and could play this for hours before getting board.

Mega Drive is a gem box so picking one 'favourite' game is tough! Earthworm Jim 1 and 2? Dune II? Aladdin? Comix Zone? Contra Hard Corps or Streets of Rage 2? So many good memories from that little console!

Had quite a few favs on the MD
Gauntlet 4, Global Gladiators, Road Rash 2, Snake Rattle & Roll, California Games. The Road Rash was pretty unique to the console at the time, so maybe I'll go with Road Rash 2 or 3.
WANTED: Mario Party 3 on N64 (just the Box only) ANY SNES GAMES, OR EMPTY SNES BOXES, INSTRUCTION MANUALS or WHITE INNER TRAYS.

So many to choose from, I still play Super Shinobi Games, Streets of Rage 2 etc

Was between Shadow Dancer same team that did the Arcade Shinobi, or Twinkle Tale bought from KT consoles in Scotland for £7 new hammered that game. Shadow Dancer just edges it

Flashback. Not your conventional action platformer, not related to Another World, but more or less the same concept. Still can't past level 2....

Gauntlet 4. It's just like classic Gauntlet, but with quests, and proper big dragons.
