Top 50 Megadrive Games

 I would like to start to compile a top 50 MD list to put on the site. So, what are the top 50 Megadrive games?

 I don't think the best MD games have aged as well as the best SNES ones. I used to enjoy Ecco The Dolphin and that is still a good game. For multiplayer Gauntlet 4 and Wiz n Liz were both very good at the time but I haven't played them in ages.

Re: Top 50 Megadrive Games

Apologies for breaking up the Welsh monopoly with some further suggestions

Road Rash - Comic Violence with some racing bolted on.
Comix Zone -  Late release IIRC but showed off what the the megadrive could do.
Streets of Rage 2 - First one was great this took it up 10 knotches
The Immortal - Nice isometric action adventure, goblinbashing tastic
Shining in the Darkness - Probably not everybodys favourite RPG on the MD but a quality none the less.
Toe Jam and Earl - Just Wierd.
Desert Strike - Not played the sequels to any great extent but this was great for its time
Dune 2 - Admittedly this was played more on the PC but the games importance to the RTS gerne makes it special.
Sonic 3 - Not a major fan of the blue ADHD hedgeog but this was the best installament.
Shadow Dancer - Shinobi + a mans best friend = WIN

Originally Cardiff. Moved to East Midlands when I was 6 months born. My Dad wanted to live closer to my grandma.

Sorry for going off topic.

This was such great fun back in the day. It is a shame it never really translated into the 3d era.

Is there anyway to change my country to Sweden?
