    I was a sonic type of guy back in the day. I Also liked Nighttrap on the Mega CD, rubbish game, but It had a good idea to it for its time.

    I was SENS all the way ,Highlights included
    Super Mario Kart, Super Mario World , Street Fighter 2, Zelda - A Link to the Past, Sim City Longer joypad cables , Mode 7, Starfox.

    Some people believe that Sega`s reluctance to move forward and bleed the mega drive to death with addons such as CD ROM and 32x a was the start of the end for them in the hardware market. But then Nintendo dropped the PlayStation ball with Sony.

    Sega here, though my sister owned an N64 later on which was awesome.

    Golden Axe - !
    Streets of Rage - !
    Street Fighter 2 - !

    Sad thing is you could list the same Nintendo games now. I had a SNES and thought it was great, but to see them hold on to the same old games just shows how far behind they have fallen for today's gamers. Still Mario Kart on the Wii was still played a lot!!

    I was a Mega Drive/Master System kid. Sonic the Hedgehog, Castle of Illusion, etc.

    My first real console was the Playstation. Before that it was the Commodore Amiga and Amstrad CPC. Just before getting the Playstation (we're talking a matter of months) my brother got a Binatone Pong console, a Sega Master System, and a SNES. I got a GameGear with MS adapter to play the 2-3 MS games we had.

    I've discovered most pre-Playstation console stuff through emulation since. I'd say I preferred Sonic to Mario. That said Star Fox was pretty special with it's Mode 7 3D graphics!

    Megadrive for me: Sonic, the original FIFA, Lotus II, Super Monaco Grand Prix, Johna Lomu Rugby, Micro Machines (how awesome was it that the cartridge had extra controller ports!).
