SEGA Mega Drive

Editor-in-Chief Jeffrey Wilson, Features Editor Gabriel Zamora, special guest Will Greenwald, and I discuss the SEGA Mega Drive a.k.a. the SEGA Genesis in honor of its 25th Anniversary this year. The talking points are not limited to, but include:

  • SEGA’s 90s-era marketing
  • Top 10 SEGA Mega Drive games you should play (plus several more)
  • The sports game revolution, furry mascots and 90s multiplatform games
  • The birth of the Console War
  • Sonic the Hedgehog, of course

A correction: I meant Peter Moore, currently of South Park and EA fame, not Bernie Stolar as the one who moved from SEGA to Microsoft to work on Xbox. Stolar was notable for moving from Sony, where he limited the amount of 2D games and RPGs released on the PSOne, to SEGA where he competitively priced the Dreamcast.
