  2. neither console is inherently "better" than the other

    you may as well be saying that guitars are better than pianos

    they’re two entirely different things, neither is "good" or "bad"

  3. No, it had better potential, but the people who used that potential extended to yuzo koshiro and basically nobody else while the SNES was easier to work with. When the genesis did well, it did very well. Even discounting the obvious, games like warsong/langrisser and zero wing sounded amazing, but when dealing with multiple platforms the genesis felt like it suffered in the music department as a result. Zombies ate my neighbors and der langrisser come to mind here

    • I have them both.
      imo the only ones who don’t appreciate the genesis are nintoddIers blinded by nostalgia and fanboyism,

      both are great

    • what I like about that cover is the fact that is what you would get from a sega CD release to get similar to , ginga fukei densetsu saphire or lords of thunder

  4. on no planet did muh yamaha, muh real instrument sound better than super nintendo, which has all timers like chrono trigger and dkc2

  5. will segameriscrotes ever be able to cope with the fact that, unlike snoys and tendies, their childhood went bankrupt and self kicked itself out of the industry?

  6. I can confidently say that Genesis has shittier games, shittier graphics AND shittier sound than SNES.

    It might have held the potential for doing each one better in certain instances, but that’s rarely what anyone experienced in practice.

    • Genesis generally had much better action and arcade games. Shoot em ups, beat em ups… Sports games are also considered better in genesis and it did have some great action/adventure games like Wonderboy or Ecco the dolphin.
      The extra sprites Genesis could handle were also generally translated in much better battles against bosses. Even in genres were it wasn’t too prolific like jrpgs it still had some great games.

  7. Genesis music sounds like half the band didn’t even show up.


    It’s not even close. Genesis doesn’t have a fraction of SNES’s good music.

    • it’s a comparison between both consoles

      >3 hours of muffled garbage
      can just put hands on my ears and listen to movie soundtracks instead

      • All of Shinobi 3’s music is great. But music wise, The SNES was better. Yes, there’s some great stuff on the Genesis (Sonic, Thunder Force, Shinobi, SoR, Gunstar Heroes, Ristar for example) the SNES just did music better.
