Default Sega Genesis vs Super Nintendo

Who did you have as a kid, who do you have now?

Genesis as a kid, Genesis now for me.

You meant 'what'.

Anyway, I had a Sega Genesis as a kid and a Nintendo Entertainment System. I didn't have the SNES, but I'd probably pick that now over the Sega.

I had a SNES when I was a kid so I was clearly biased and thought it was better. Looking back now with no attachment at all to Nintendo and Sega, I still say SNES was better. The RPGs are the difference for me. As awesome as Shining Force 2 was, it cannot compete with Final Fantasy 6, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Earthbound, etc.

I like fighting games too and both Street Fighter 2 and Mortal Kombat 2 were better on the SNES. Genesis had the better MK1 though (mostly due to actually having blood).

I had a Genesis when I was a kid, a SNES much later. I vote for the SNES, hands down.

OP, you an AVGN fan? He just put out a couple of videos talking about the rivalry.

Pretty sure this^^ is where the OP got the idea for the thread

AVGN ftw

For me I'd pick the SNES anyday. And I had a Genesis, not a Super Nintendo. It just had the better variety of games and gameplay.

I had a Genesis growing up.

In general, Genesis, for the soundchips, SNES.

Genesis had a lot of fun games like Comix Zone, the Adventures of Batman and Robin (One of the hardest games around), Ecco the Dolphin, Sonic, Vectorman, Altered Beast, and the Shinobi series.

SNES had some fun games, but I would take the Genesis.

Genesis growing up.

Sonic and sports games were plenty fun for a kid. SNES would be the better system for an older gamer with some more patience.

Genesis was better for arcade type shooters and sports games b/c of its faster processor.

SNES pretty much rocked it for all other types of games. Its RPG collection is greatness.

I had both when I was young so I got the best of both worlds.


I was always jealous of the people with TG16s though b/c that thing was SHUMP heaven.

Genesis for me. It had a 2 year head start before the SNES even debuted and I still remember the Genesis being very impressive for its time. The Genesis also had my favorite controller of the two.

Playing Eternal Champions with this controller was awesome.
