I'm a bit surprised that so many people vote for the Genesis.Of course, it's a great console, but it lacks on innovations and ideas for me.To many games were focused on a classic arcade style, while many SNES games were focused on the modern exploration gameplay.I wish the Genesis had more games of the type like Super Metroid, Zelda, Donkey Kong, Chrono Trigger, Terranigma etc.
I mean, there were so many very innovative and strategic games for the SNES, and what did Sega?They released arcade games, but they never come to the idea of trying something new, just arcade, arcade, arcade.That's one of some reasons, that Nintendo won the war against Sega.
Fairly said, its a matter of preference.I know that many people prefer the Genesis over the SNES, especially the fact that there are so many arcade games for this console.
if there was one console in teh 16 bit era that lacked innovation and new ideas ti was the snes. it wa sbasically an upgraded nes including it's games while genesis was truly something else back then. that's why it gets more votes too I assume because more people still pick up and play it's games
