Sega Genesis Classic Game Console
Whoa -- wow, am I really seeing this? I thought I was in the past. This is terrific to see something by Sega once again on Gamestop's website. I mean, truly, I still have my Sega Genesis, and plenty of games for it, but I just might have to get one of these anyhow, as a spare. And for the price, one just can't go wrong. Me, being a retro classic gamer, shall eat this up. I usually don't order things online, unless I have no other choice. But seeing as this is online only, I'm as good as owning it already.
BLAST FROM THE PAST!!!!!
I bought this a few weeks ago and today i finally hooked it up to my brother's tv, since his tv is the only tv in the house that has the yellow jack slot. The first game i popped into the cartridge slot is my favorite and that was Might Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie. I beat the game in just a short time, but it was a lot of fun to play it again. After i had some fun, i grabbed other old genesis cartridges that i kept in box over the years. I popped in the rest of them to see if they worked and all worked but, three. Being able to play cartridges like Mortal Kombat, King of Monsters and NBA JAM or Frogger all over agin is going to be amazingly fun. The only thing about it is, yes, its the old fashion audio and video jacks (yellow and white), knowing that many HDTV's don't have the yellow jack input anymore, having an HDMI slot would have been a great move. Also, it works just like how the original systems did, game don't work at first, turn off, blow into the cartridges like in the old days and turn on until the SEGA logo appears. Either way, i still love it, keeping it like the old days makes it feel like you're living your childhood again. The wireless controllers so far, aren't bad. They are smaller than the original controllers, but the cool part is that the console has two slots where the original controllers can be plugged in, I don't know which original controllers work with it, but if you have them, try them. I give everything 10/10. Some of you may think otherwise, but its how feel about it, i love it and playing the classics will be more fun than ever before. Now, i just need to find some more home favorite games to buy.
