I generally lean to the tradeoffs being worthwhile, for the Genesis Mini. A *lot* of the entries in the "Classics Only" list are somewhat mediocre, and another sizable amount are sets of sequels ( where even if the games are good, they are also duplicative ).

The only ones that I feel are genuine losses are Alien Soldier, Ristar, and Shining Force 2.
