16-Bit Era: SNES vs. Genesis vs. Turbografx 16

This thread is for discussing 16 bit retro systems such as the SNES, Genesis, Neo Geo, TG16, etc.

POLL COMETH.

I went with SNES by default just cause it’s what we had.

SNES had Turtles in Time and Sega had Hyperstone Heist. Both great but Turtles in Time has the edge for me. SNES had Super Castlevania IV and Genesis had Castlevania Bloodlines. Both great but the edge goes to Super CV IV for me.

Secret of Mana essentially melted permanently into my SNES after I received it Christmas 1993.

Great game, but it had a flaw. The magic "rock slide" allowed me to stack attacks against bosses and made them simple to beat.

If the Neo Geo was released today, inflation adjusted it would cost $1200, and the games roughly $400.

The Super Nintendo was the best video game system and held court over the best age for gaming. Period.

Disagree and I will fight you.

Yanno, I was a kid. I know the american version changed the suicide scene into some weird cliff jumping hobby... but I don't remember it that way. I remember it as Celes trying to kill herself, but there's no way that's how it was translated when I played it. I guess the way it was presented made it so obvious it didn't matter what the dialogue was.

Mandela effect I suppose. Still, Suicide, genocide... FF games sure did present some pretty adult shit to kids.

When you start getting to the 3-D consoles, it's hit or miss. Those polygons didn't age well and the controls on a lot of those platformers was just garbage (now I'm looking at you, Tomb Raider for PS1).
Ah Contra.

I beat that game so many times using the 30 life code that eventually I didn't need to use it. Never did achieve a flawless run. Dying only once was the best I could do. Still, I think that was pretty good.

out of these 2, I preferred genesis. all the games came in plastic cases that you didnt dare throw away. the SNES games came in carborard boxes that you would want to get trid of after a while.

Yep. The original Tomb Raider and the first several installments of Resident Evil immediately come to mind. The graphics are horrendous but that can be explained away based on the tech, the controls were just so damned wonky.

I remember the first time you see that zombie in RE and I was like "Ooohhh, my God! It looks so real!" Lol
