1. Street Fighter II Special Champion Edition - To me at the time of its release this was the definitive home console version of the greatest fighting game of all time. The Genesis was able to handle the game well without any competition ruining slow down the SNES had. The music was also very faithful to the arcade original due to similar sound chips, the music didn't have to be re-written.

2. Dungeons and Dragons: Warriors of the Eternal Sun - This is a great RPG with a unique strategy-esque combat system. Inside dungeons and caves though the game goes first person with real time combat. Killer music in this game as well.

3. Road Rash II - I had countless hours of fun with this game due to its dual modes of play. In single player it was some what of a racing RPG, where you would grind races to upgrade your bike so you could compete in harder races and earn more cash. But there was also the two player split screen mode that was fun as hell if you had a friend over. The combat in the game certainly made it fun to hunt your buddy down.

4. Shining Force - Straight up fun and colorful strategy RPG.

5. Rocket Knight Adventures - Its hard to beat Rocket Knight. Where does it fail? The gameplay is fun with innovative gimmicks such as the rocket pack and the tail swinging. The sound is sharp and the music addictive. The controls are tight.. the boss fights are epic, the difficulty is balanced. It's fun. This in my opinion is one of the most well made games of all time.

6. Golden Axe II - I love wading through hordes of enemy henchmen in a medieval fantasy setting, with a friend at my side. Fighting over mounts and potions is almost as fun as unleashing your most powerful magic on a boss.

7. Mortal Kombat - Sure this was a terrible clunky fighting game where every character was basically the same aside from special moves. But it made my list for two reasons. The first being nostalgia. This game had so much hype and buzz behind it. Everyone from kids to adults were talking about it. Unfortunately for me included in those adults were my parents. They had heard of the mature nature of the game and I was told I would not be allowed to play it. Somewhere though someone cracked. I remember slowly unwrapping Mortal Kombat on my birthday, and when it had finally registered in me and my best friends brain what we were holding, we began jumping up and down with excitement. The second reason being previously mentioned gore. Who doesn't want to rip out their best friend's still beating heart?

8. Wonder Boy in Monster World - This is an RPG that takes away some of the boring parts of traditional RPGs by also being a platformer. The game is visually attractive and is one of the few RPGs I would consider to have a lot of replay value.

9. Super Baseball 2020 - I'm not a big sports game fan other than a select few racers and fighting games. This game is just so fun though it's easy to look past the fact that it is a baseball game. 7 years in the future watch out for robotic baseball teams and technologically advanced sports stadiums.

10. Sonic the Hedgehog - The first Sonic game I actually owned came as a pack in with my model 2 Genesis, Sonic 2. It was a good game, but I think I got burned out on it or something. My best friend who I had met later on had the original Sonic the Hedgehog. It's a simpler game and for some reason I just find it more fun.

Plus they nailed the damn controls like a nuclear hurricane that came out of a dragon's dick. It is one of the only fighting games on the system with FLAWLESS controls.

Oh man.  Yeah.  That's the first Street Fighter II game I ever played, and it's still my favorite out of all of them.

Honorable mention for Super Battleship - great fun on first playthrough but limited replay value since there is nothing new to do or discover.

Cyborg Justice was awesome back in the day! Tearing enemy robots arms, legs, torsos off and beating them with 'em.  Also, it has some of the coolest music/sound effects on the Genesis, in my honest opinion.  

Man, top 10 worst?? Haha.  Sure it has some flaws I can agree, but it's not that bad!  The aforementioned traits more than make up for it, to me.  BTW cool to see another RYM user here

I do think it is that bad, haha. Though it is cool we can have a difference of opinion about that one thing and be respectful about it and that you can find enjoyment in the game. I love RYM, it is one of my favorite sites.

I am surprised to see that at the top of someone's list. Not because I think it is horrible but I just never got into it. All the other games you mentioned I love. Maybe I need to give Spinball a proper try.

Couple of different top ten's lists here....is interesting.

Normally is Sonic 2 or SOR 2 in first place...

On the other hand i agree with Dane...Cyborg Justice had potential but for me is unplayable, still love the idea that other people enjoy this game because it tells me that probably i have to give it a second try...

No rhyme or reason for my interest in Spinball. For so odd reason I really like it lol.
