While Im a Sega fan, I agree with it being hard. I only added one game I think cause the other one was taken. I really didnt care for the shining games all that much and all that was left for me to play on a Genesis was Vermillion and Phantasy Star. IV was the best so thats the one that would have been my other choice.

I want to second the "dont do a gamegear" list. I cant imagine that many good games on the system. And even though its one of my absolute favorite systems, I wouldnt be all for an SMS list either. Mostly cause there was only around 120 SMS NA games anyhow! Could maybe do a top 25 or so.

I was thinking a Top 50, but since I'm in the minority I guess not.

But the challenge was still accepted, let's see if I can do it:

1.   Sonic the Hedgehog
2.   Sonic the Hedgehog 2
3.   Sonic Chaos
4.   Sonic the Hedgehog in Triple Trouble
5.   Sonic Blast
6.   Sonic Labyrinth
7.   Sonic Spinball
8.   Tails' Adventure
9.   Tails' Sky Patrol
10.   Columns
11.   Super Columns
12.   Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine
13.   Ninja Gaiden
14.   Shinobi
15.   Shinobi II: The Silent Fury
16.   Ax Battler: A Legend of Golden Axe
17.   Mortal Kombat
18.   Mortal Kombat II
19.   Samurai Shodown
20.   Fatal Fury Special
21.   Primal Instinct
22.   Cool Spot
23.   Terminator
24.   Robocop vs. Terminator
25.   T2: Judgment Day
26.   Spider-Man
27.   Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse
28.   Land of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse
29.   Lucky Dime Caper Starring Donald Duck
30.   Deep Duck Trouble Starring Donald Duck
31.   Space Harrier
32.   Streets of Rage
33.   Streets of Rage 2
34.   Strider Returns
35.   Road Rash
36.   Super Monaco GP
37.   Rastan Saga
38.   Wonder Boy
39.   Fantasy Zone
40.   Shining Force: The Sword of Hajya
41.   Phantasy Star Adventure
42.   Batman Returns
43.   Pinball Dreams
44.   Marble Madness
45.   WWF: Raw
46.   WWF Wrestlemania: Steel Cage Challenge
47.   Paperboy
48.   Paperboy 2
49.   Shanghai II (Mahjong)
50.   Solitaire Poker

Okay, so the last two entries were reaches, but they are still fun games.

I don't know about some of those games. T2: Judgement Day was horrible. It was just the port of the LJN game (LJN being Acclaim's publishing company for crappy NES games and Flying Edge being that for SEGA). Also, wonder boy does not exist on the Game Gear... only the Revenge of Drancon.  :P

But you did miss some really good ones. Crystal Warriors for instance. It's like a very early final fantasy tactics type game. It's amazing!

Halley Wars is a good GG shmup. A respectable Battletoads port made its way over.

Since you added Phantasy Star and opened the door for imports. The GG has two aleste games. I repeat it has TWO ALESTE games! Freakin' sweet! There is also Magic Knight Rayearth, Coca Cola Kid, etc.

There are plenty more. I think a top 50 would be doable. But when you are talking 242/243 games, a top 100 would be difficult. Especially since about 8 of them are card games of some sort. But I am a game gear fan and slowly working on a complete set.

I didn't think imports would matter since the Game Gear doesn't region lock games anyways.

Yeah, we both have imports on each of our lists. Even without imports, I have no real issue with putting wonder boy down. I just find the name conventions in wonder boy games mind boggling and humorous. Why wonder boy is called Revenge of Drancon only in the US and only on the game gear is just strange. The box art was very misleading as well.

Although I own a Game Gear I wouldn't be able to come up with too many since I've not played a lot. I've still got more Genesis games though  :D I know many of you don't play sports games but I could have added some golf, soccer, and boxing to the list. Nobody mentioned Master of Monsters either which I only rented but know I liked it quite a bit. Aerobiz is one I've heard is great but never had a chance to play it. For Master System I might stick to 50 or less for the US, though if people are familiar with the European releases then you might be able to get more. I can't really participate in Nintendo lists since I've played so little on their platforms outside of Game Boy.

Oh yeah, there are several Genesis games left. Outrun and Street Fighter immediately come to mind. They were definitive for the time and/or system.
