In terms of pure fun on the Genesis, titles like Strider, Quackshot or Rocket Knight Adventures really bring the goods. But oddly enough these titles don't stick with me as much as some of the harder darker themed games that seeped their way into the 16-bit market. I'd like to take a moment to examine three of those in particular.
The Watcher in the Water also makes a guest appearance.
here's a sample for your listening enjoyment). Target Earth got a sequel on the SNES entitled Cybernator and then a third entry which only came out in Japan. So, I guess this is the first in a trilogy though I must confess I only ever played the original.
There are a number of other titles I could talk about such as Shining Force, the one and only fantasy series to feature Tactical RPG game play on the Genesis. Or Shadow Dancer, a highly underrated sequel to the somewhat lackluster Shinobi. But truth be told, I think I've said enough about the Sega and their 16-bit system for now. For those of you who have missed out on some of these titles though I hope this has been an interesting read.
