Yeah I know, my username does indeed suck. When I made this profile I never intended it to be my primary username, unfortunately it just ended up that way, and now I'm stuck with it unless I start over

Seeing as I'm bored, I've added up all those scores here (really!), and can tell that the game in the Number One position has almost forty more points than the game in the 2nd highest rated position!

10. Micro Machines 2: Turbo Tournament (or 96)
9. Sonic the Hedgehog
8. The Lost Vikings
7. NHL 94
6. Streets of Rage
5. Madden 92
4. Chuck Rock
3. Streets of Rage 2
2. The Lion King
1. Sensible Soccer

Some of the games originated on other platforms, but I personally remember playing and enjoying them on the Megadrive. Except Sensi, which I will always associate only with the Amiga - but it's still too good not to make the list!
