SEGA Mega Drive (Genesis)

SEGA Mega Drive Collage


Let’s not beat about the bush here, the SEGA Mega Drive (known as Genesis to our American family) is Arcade Attack’s favourite ever console. We all had one and still play it daily (except Rob, probably).

Launched in 1988, it sold over 30 million units worldwide. Boosted by amazing third party support there’s possibly over a thousand games available for it. Can we cover them all? Errr, we’ll give it a shot.
