genesis is not a common word that people know what it means. it derives only from the bible and unless you know some elements of the bible like the books names and storys you have no idea what genesis is.

maybe if you're iliterate :|

like most people in europa don't know. as I said if 80% of the people here in netherlands at least don't know christmas is supposed to be the celebration of the birth of jesus then how do you think they know what genesis is.

Wow I did not know that about Sega. I guess it makes sense considering their arcade background, ironically they helped kill arcades. I honestly not sure what this thing about religion, I never thought of it in a religious way, that would be like making a connection between the bible game, and the NES.

maybe so, but in the end, when you read the word "genesis" you're more likely to connect it to christianity, which was my original argument

Fair enough.

Well, Sega certainly played a major role in both the rise of the arcades and the fall of the arcades. Because of their push to bring the arcades home during the 90s, they ended up rendering the arcades obsolete by the time the Dreamcast came along. The Dreamcast's failure was not the only reason Sega existed the hardware business, but the other main reason was because of the decline of the arcades, the other half of Sega's business at the time.

the decline of the arcades had nothing to do with thbat. the reason the arcades declined as because home consolkes had started to surpass actual arcade hardware technology. that and online gaming meant in the west at least the market for arcades was gone. I still mis it every day

[QUOTE="Heirren"] The name Sega Mega Drive was originally conceived to match the naming scheme of its predecessor, the Sega Master System. Since the Sega Master System was very successful in Europe (where it dominated the NES), the Mega Drive would have been a suitable name for a successor console. In North America, on the other hand, the Sega Master System was unsuccessful, so they probably made up the name "Genesis" to indicate a fresh start for Sega in the region, though that was only after legal issues prevented them from using the Mega Drive name. [QUOTE="rilpas"]well in Japan it's called the PC engine, I'm guessing they didn't want IBM to sue them :PJag85

Except that IBM couldn't even be bothered to sue all those IBM PC clone manufacturers... But I think the name has more to do with the Japanese using "computer" in a more general sense at the time, like the NES's original name "Family Computer", later shortened to Famicom.

Genesis came first, because Sega wanted to beat out the NES. Yet I still believe the NES was a way better system than the Genesis simply due to the ambition to which games were made, howfar the hardware was driven and also of course because of the first party classics. Mario games have and always will beat out Sonic games over and over, and taking the history of the Sonic games vs Mario games across several systems since then, this theory only proves more and more true.

Then the SNES came along and brought us even greater classics. Yet, not only that, but the SNES was a much stronger piece of hardware than the Genesis, and could do lots more. This was plainly evident by the fact that whenever arcade ports were brought over for both systems, the SNES always had the Genesis beat - games like Street Fighter 2 and Mortal Kombat prove this. Forget the fact that Mortal Kombat for the Genesis had blood. The SNES version not only looked way better, it also played way better. The controller was also more flexible and had the capacity to handle more complicated games (I'm still wondering how SF2 and MK gamers were able to play those games on that piece of crap Genesis 3-button controller... was the Start button used as a punch button or something? Lol)

Sure, Genesis had a much more obnoxious and forceful fanboy crowd, but the SNES gamers and Nintendo themselves simply sat back and said "look, boast all you want, you and I know that the SNES has got you all beat hands down." And it did.

While I won't start going into detail about specific game genres, and if RPG's had better games on Genesis, or action games were better with the SNES. Whatever. We're talking about not only hardware here, but how each company promoted and sold their product, and of course how they maintained it throughout the system's longevity. This is not some debate like the 360 vs the PS3 (even though I personally think the 360 is crap compared to the PS3, even though the 360 has a more mainstream fanboy casual gamer crowd), because in terms of hardware, both systems are virtually identical. No, the SNES is a clear winner over the Genesis in every aspect of the hardware department, so it surprises me that this vote could put the Genesis over the SNES, even though to all gamers alike, no matter WHAT platform you have now, cannot deny that Nintendo has done more to progress the video game market than any other company ever has overall.

2. The Mega Drive had a faster CPU and a larger colour palette than the SNES. The SNES was technically superior in some ways, while the Mega Drive was superior in other ways.

The bold is not true unless you mean the 32X.

I agree Sega arcades were pretty amazing back then. There may be some negative things said about their console hardware but their arcades were cutting-edge.

*looks at poll* looks like the Nintendo sheep have arrived. I like to see you explain your reasoning the Sega Genesis had nothing that did not excite you, this should be good. I am not talking about a general reason, more specifics of what brought you to that conclusion.

*secret 0_- face*

I also missed the arcades, I remember playing Terminator, the arcade! And all those momment where the coin machines were damaged, or for some reason we could play one game infinitely, maybe it was on purpose.

The poll seems kind of accurate to the way I see it.:D Sega Genesis just is somewhat cooler. Btw I went to gamers and saw Super Metroid, Mario Kart, I think Kirby, and I was like "if I didnt get rid of my SNES." Of course I kind of want money, and well I kind of like how my Sega Genesis blends in with my tv. Why is the Super Nintendo all purple and white? Such a strange color scheme. I like how the Sega Genesis is so sleek and sexy. You cant get chicks with a SNES, but you could impress them with a Sega Genesis.:D

Consoles couldn't surpass the arcades, because the arcades were like PCs: they could always be upgraded. Nevertheless, by the time the Dreamcast came along, consoles could produce accurate enough arcade conversions that the arcades were no longer seen as necessary. And to make it worse, PCs also had the ability to continuously upgrade, making the arcades redundant. And like you mentioned, the rise of online gaming also ended up becoming a replacement for the kind of social gaming that the arcades were known for, though social arcade gaming is still alive and well in Japan.

Actually, you're right. The SNES had a larger colour palette. What I was thinking of was the contrast levels. If you compare the SNES and Mega Drive versions of Street Fighter II, the Mega Drive version has more contrast and saturation, while SNES version has more varied colours but less contrast.

I liked that review, he goes into specifics. But I hate these type of fighting games, anyone who uses games like this as a comparison... Fighting games suck, the ones where you are on this stage etc. I am not sure why the sound on the Sega Genesis is so scratchy, I played Robocop Version the Terminator, and when that female says "terminatorrr," it is very smooth. Anyways this is what I meant about graphic differences, the SNES seems to have a different color scheme.

I did watch it. While I don't like his tone, I usually think he does a good job. Here though, he mentions contrast/saturation as if he has no clue what he's talking about. A lot of times contrast will be boosted to hide a lack of detail, which is often the case in the Genesis version. Bringing up color saturation is rather pointless, or pointless if not done properly.

I remember playing the genesis game and thinking how something was just off, gameplay wise. As if there was slightly less animation which threw off a lot of the timings.

The SNES version looks smoother, but the higher saturation of the Mega/Genesis version balances it out. For example, the Ryu stage looks somewhat more detailed in the Mega/Genesis version because of the higher saturation, but it looks a bit rough around the edges in comparison to the smoother-looking SNES version.

Which ever system has games that look closer to this wins!!!

Sega Genesis, Gunstar Heroes. Ristar maybe, but Donkey Kong Country could qualify easily.

Increasing contrast and color saturation, in game, is just a means to hide the detail that isn't even there in the first place. Imo it looks bad--it reminds me of going to Bestbuy and seeing all their tvs set to torch mode. Also, if I wanted I could adjust all that stuff on the tv itself.
