I'm talking about it's function. The SNES and 64 have shown they can in fact last for the long run. But the Genesis my friend has, it only works for 1 game, 94 RBI Baseball. Why does in only work for 1?

With so few moving parts (did the Genesis even have any?) the cartridge based consoles were fairly reliable. Make sure the contact pins where the cartridge plugs into the console are clean, even a speck of dust can make an old Game Boy game not load. A dry q-tip is all I've ever needed and I've cleaned some pretty dirty game stuff. It could also be a broken/cracked solder joint which is a little harder to fix but just involves reflowing the solder. Worst case scenario is if the ROM holding the BIOS goes corrupt and then yeah you really are SOL.
I've dropped my Genesis (model 2) on a concrete driveway and it still works. As for the OP, just clean the cartridges because if the console works for one game it is likely that the console if fine.
