Castlevania Bloodlines
COMIX zone
Shinobi 3
eswat
Punisher
Splatterhouse 2
Alisia Dragoon
X-Men 2 Clone Wars
Lightening Force
MUSHA

No real particular order here, Punisher is a slick beat em up, Alisia Dragoon is a great platformer with some real depth, Splatterhouse 2 is my favorite of the series, Lightening Force is one of the best shmups I've ever played, X-Men 2 is easily the best comic book game on the system. Comix Zone is unlike anything else on the system, eswat is a fun and vastly underrated game, and Castlevania Bloodlines is probably my favorite in the series because it's a straightforward to the point action game that looks gorgeous on the system with outstanding music.

castlevania: bloodlines
the punisher
gunstar heroes
sonic the hedgehog 2
ristar
beyond oasis
thunder force III
strider
wonderboy in monster world
mystic defender

i don't know exactly what order these games would rank aside from gunstar heroes being number one and strider and ristar having to duke it out for the number two spot, but i do know that these ten games have left an indelible mark on me in some way, shape or form and will always be my favorites as a result of that.

That's what I was looking for. It doesn't matter if they are pricey titles or not, I'm just wondering what everybody's favorite games are. If anybody wants to list more than 10, that's okay too!

Heh, if it were about price my list would be full of fail  I disagree about listing more than 10.  It's a top 10!  It's hard to narrow them down, but yeah, I say no more than 10

This is extremely difficult. I think this is pretty close, it's tough narrowing it to 10 and the ordering is probably not perfect, but it's close.

1. The Revenge of Shinobi
2. Road Rash II
3. Streets of Rage 2
4. NHL 96
5. M.U.S.H.A.
6. Gunstar Heroes
7. Phantasy Star II
8. Thunder Force III
9. Risk: The Game of World Conquest
10. TMNT Hyperstone Heist

In no particular order except the alphabetical:

Gain Ground
Golden Axe II
Granada
Landstalker
Light Crusader
Marble Madness (Tengen)
Shadow of the Beast
Sunset Riders
Sword of Sodan
World of Illusion

I've only played a relatively small proportion of the library, and I have quirky tastes.

Has anyone noticed Shining Force II hasn't been in anyones top 10 lol. I've never played the game as I'm not an RPG kind of guy but I thought the game was good.

Yeah, I have an odd affection for it, despite its major flaws. I know it gets trashed, and about 50% of that is deserved, but 50% is from people who don't figure out how to play the game. But I have a soft spot for Amiga conversions.

lol, yeah I find it hard to believe, but if you manage to find some aspects of it good then good on you as someone needs to like it or it wouldn't exist just like Never Ending Story.

The biggest thing they messed up with SOS is having the default settings be almost unplayable. The male character (whose name is, ahem, "Brodan") is much harder to use than the female character (Shardan), and "Normal" is really the equivalent of "Very Hard" and gets cheap as hell. On Easy the game is still frustrating and cheap at times, but it's basically manageable. I've beaten it on the hardest settings (Brodan/Normal/3 Lives) but it's a lot more fun on Easy.

Yes, that is crazy. Good thing I'm here to remedy this absurd situation. Shining Force II is above and beyond my favorite Genny title. Here is my list in no particular order beyond the first two.

Shining Force II
Thunder Force III
Sonic 2
Contra Hard Corps
Columns
Mutant League Football
Skitchin
Mega Turrican
Mercs
Light Crusader

Not to derail my own thread, but I've got my collection page updated with everything that I currently have in hand. I've got Golden Axe, Strider, OutRun, Mortal Kombat and Sonic & Knuckles on the way so if anybody can recommend any must have titles that I'm missing, I'd love to hear some suggestions! I've got my embarrassing Saturn and Dreamcast collections updated to if anybody wants to throw out some good titles for those.

Rocket Knight, Dynamite Headdy, Castlevania, Shinobi 3, Gunstar Heroes, Lightning Force, and Thunder Force 3 are really top tier must own games for the system. I'm real suprised I haven't seen anyone mention Dynamite Headdy, it's a truly exceptional platformer, it didn't make my top ten since I'm not a huge platformer guy.

i could NEVER EVER get into strider.  i've tried multiple times.  i just don't see the appeal at all and am very surprised it is number 1.

but, i never played the arcade version of it.  i'm sure if i was super into the arcade my views would be different about the genesis port.

i also feel the vector man series is one of the most overrated series on the genesis.  with that said, i'm kind of surprised that sega didn't try to further the series on the saturn.  in fact, it seems that sega kind of let a lot of decent games just die.
