I'd guess Eliminate Down for the Mega Drive, I think it's pretty expensive nowadays.

Tie between the Dreamcast and N64. They're the only consoles I have that are not hooked up.
Contra III is my favorite, I feel like the boss battles and music are the best in the entire series. Following close behind would be Contra Hard Corps, then the NES games and then Shattered Soldier. Shattered Soldier is pretty awesome, but some of the bosses, especially the ones on stage 6 are sort of goofy looking, and I wish they had someone else do the music for the entire game.
Yep, fantastic game. I picked it up a loong time ago probably for about $20. Now a cart alone fetches $100+ on ebay.
Hagane is one of my favorite 2D action games. The controls are very intuitive and tight, it's awesome dodging an attack by doing a quick backflip. All the items are fun to use and come in handy at certain parts of the game, you can tell each level was really thought out. Great graphics and music, lots of bosses and varied levels too, pretty much the whole package. It's sort of like a Shinobi III for the SNES, except way better.
NES > SMS
SNES > Genesis
Saturn > N64
Dreamcast > Gamecube, though I don't really care for either of them.
SNES has the most games that I enjoy out of any console and based off that alone I would have go with Nintendo. However, the N64 was such a huge dissapointment for me at the time that I stopped caring for Nintendo once I got a Playstation and a Saturn.
The SNES version is much closer to the arcade, Genesis version is almost an entirely different game, with different level layouts. Genesis version also limits you to only 2 characters, while the SNES has all 4. Genesis version only has half of the levels, but each level is split into two. SNES Sunset Riders has all 8 levels and bosses.
Both lack the 4 player option.
If you can only get one, definitely get the SNES version. The Genesis one does have a tacked on vs. mode though, but it is definitely not worth it.
I have played Phantasy Star, 2, 3 and 4. Number 4 is the only one I found to be playable and didn't really hold my interest. I have played other old skool RPG's like Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior and liked it. So why do ppl keep talking about these games?
I felt the exact same way. I had to force myself through Phantasy Star II and III.
