I had a couple friends I would play with a genesis back in the day. I remember back then the bit wars were in full-swing, so I would hold the banner for Nintendo yet still be enamored with what Sega had. It was Forbidden Fruit sort of thing, you know? I remember playing Sonic, and also Bare Knuckle 3 (holy fuck do I need to find a copy of Bare Knuckle 3 ASAP!)

Anyway, I was at this game exchange like I often go to every month and the system was up for auction. I decide why the fuck not? So It was very much an impulse purchase.

Sonic 1 comes with the system of course, so I scourged around at the exchange afterward and picked up Sonic 2, DJ Boy, and the 6-Pak

Sega had to call it Genesis in NA because another company had a trademark on the name Mega Drive. It's not an "Americans trying to be different" issue, it's a "Sega couldn't call it Mega Drive there" issue.

That's not true anymore. Nintendo fans flocking to the Genesis after prices for NES and SNES games rose up also caused it to happen for Genesis games.

>> No.2123887

For the most part all the "good" games are under $40. There are a few exceptions like Bloodlines which goes for a lot.
Consoles are far cheaper than a SNES also.

Now SEGA CD and some 32x stuff is crazy priced.

Sadly Genesis prices have some up been rising because of collector assholes or Nintendy kids getting on the wagon but you can still find some good deal on some titles.
>Now SEGA CD and some 32x stuff is crazy priced.
Sega CD I can believe but 32X been rising up in the market thats weird I thought people really didn't give a shit about it cause AVGN haha SHITTY ASS ADD ON!
Get some of the Disney based games like Aladdin, Lion King, World/Castle of Illusion, Quack shot, and Bonkers. Sonic 3 &K, SoR2, and Dynamite Headdy. Light Crusader is enjoyable too.

AVGN said the SEGA CD is shit too.

I doubt SEGA will reach Nintendo prices.

>> No.2123930

Some games have at one point during I think March till like July MUSHA went from a 100-150 game to a 500 dollar game and it down drastically after that. Gunstar, Contra, and CV have also major price rises they went for 25-40 dollar games to 40-70 dollar loose. As long as Yu Yu Hakusho and Centy's prices don't up the fucking overpriced area, I'm fine. I've also seen Sonic 1 and 2 go for 10 bucks loose which to me is super overpriced in some stores a shame too.

how much does it go for now? is it 300 dollar game or worse?
I might import it since it's like 10 bucks imported but damn really? since when??

>> No.2123941

I didn't say there were no expensive games. There are but almost all the good games are well under $40.

I think the biggest price difference is the consoles. Lucky to break $100 with a boxed Genesis. And the best revisions go for cheap which is great for me.

I'm not sure what's driving the price of the 32x up though. Few that were complete in box went for over $100 on fleabay.

>> No.2123943

It's been a $200 +/- game since early this year, loose. Good luck finding a boxed one.

Give it time. Some games like Sanic and Aladdin will always be cheap— but the prices on other games have been rising fast. A few years back, I picked up Alisia Dragoon for $7. Now it's about $40.

Ya you're either lying or you were some fringe kid that ate his lunch in the bathroom or something.

You experienced it then. It's just having a lot of passion for something you like is all.

>> No.2124000

Basically, it worked like this:
Not everyone's mommies and daddies were rich enough, or willing to buy their kids both an SNES and Genesis- as yours evidently were. So a lot of kids get one system- and the kids who got the other system are going to make fun of yours; and you, theirs- because neither of you want to be the on the side with the system nobody wants to come over and play with you. Of course are games on the other systems that you wish you could play at home, but don't let the other side hear you say that.
I'm not saying it was justified, but that's playground logic; we were all stupid kids, bombarded with advertisements saying that one side was definitively better so we had better believe it since our parents sure as fuck weren't about to drop money on another system. ("But I just got you THAT one!)

Nice projecting, but I'm not him, and I grew up with a Genesis in the 90s, and all my friends had the Super Nintendo, and there was never any animosity. We played Sega games at my house and Nintendo games at theirs.

Well, your comment was retarded. My friends and I all had SNES, but when I went over to someone's place and they had a Genesis, I played Sanic, or Rocket Knights, or Golden Axe and fun with those instead of being a faggot.

Take my estimate with a grain of salt because I'm not sure if these prices have gotten worse or lowered down. I think Gunstar Heroes did for a while back in the summer? But thats how it was in March-May on ebays. If not I'm sorry nintendorks, resellers, collecthoards have ruined our glory days of cheap games.
