Let the fun begin :)

      Welcome to my Blog ladies and gents. I was going to wait until I had a complete U.S. Genesis collection before starting the blog, but a friend said...why wait? so...yeah why wait? The point of this blog is going to be to write reviews on every Sega Genesis game released in the U.S. and give some insight on how to identify and fix common hardware problems.

      As of now my collection is 89 games strong, 66 complete ( boxed with instructions) and 23 loose. So...lets start this blog off on a informative note. For those who aren't Sega Genesis collectors, or are just starting...lets get you acquainted with the basics.

      Sega Genesis, the follow up to the SMS (Sega Master System) was release in Japan as the Mega Drive in 1988. It was release in the U.S. in 1989 as the Sega Genesis as Sega could not secure the name rights to the Mega Drive over here. It was then released in Europe under the Mega Drive name in 1990.



So here are the different models of Sega Genesis.




                                                                              Model 1

Model 2


Model 3


So as you can see..the system progressively became smaller over time. Also the Model 3 is the only of the 3 to not connect to a Sega CD model.

  1. I'll trade you my model 1 for one of your model 2's (j/k), I just prefer the #2 style over 1 or 3. NEED A MASTER SYSTEM >.<
