i am not that experience with the genesis so it would be interesting to see how people would rank those games personally

you can throw in the 'asia' "exclusive" games if you want but i am mostly thinking about the games that will be in the 'western' release (unhacked of course)

yeah your list was actually quite helpful, and i have saved it to get a bit of a 'sense' of what the more quality games are

seems like the companies that where popular on the NES and SNES didn't make as many Genesis games (maybe konami with contra and castlevania).. aside from sega themselves many of these are companies that i am not familiar with (with some exceptions like capcom made strider)

i was hoping to get more opinions like yours, i have actually saved the list for later

Yeah, I dunno if Nintendo's contracts had something to do with it at that point still, but it seems Capcom for example just didn't care as much for the MD (Sega actually ported those early games like Strider and GnG themselves). Would've been cool to see some more Natsume games like Pocky & Rocky on MD too.

Cool. Well a bunch of my favs from the whole library are from more obscure devs, sometimes one offs (Ranger X, Panorama Cotton, Twinkle Tale for example).
Looking at my top list some of the main developers besides Treasure and Konami are Technosoft, Westone, Compile, NCS/Masaya, Codemasters and Virgin. EA, Namco and Toaplan also made some good games.

I would have preferred Ristar over Altered Beast, and Sonic 3D Blast would have been nice too.

But other than that, great list. Lots of variety.

Nintendo made it mad hard or impossible for some companies to make games for competitors at times. They had some crazy contracts n companies found crazier workarounds lol.

Genesis/Sega did a lot for competition, even tho Nintendo made it hard

Imagine an Eternal Champions with more fluid motions in better frames of animation. That would be nice.
