I made that collage back in 2007. I honestly don't know how it made its way to the Recommended Wiki since I only posted it a handful of times and never saw it reposted by anybody else and I'm honestly kind of embarassed by it these days and wish it wasn't on that page because it really doesn't represent the system well at all.

Essentially I slapped it together rather quickly in response to this SNES image that was posted rather frequently on /v/ at the time.

I don't know why I picked some of the games I did. I was not nearly as well-versed in great Genesis games as I am now and based that list mostly on my own childhood (Particularly why Batman and Aladdin -- somewhat lackluster platformers even if Batman has an amazing soundtrack) and the few popular import games I found out through emulation like Alien Soldier and Pulseman. Back then (Nearly eight years ago, goddamn) I hadn't played Landstalker, Crusader of Centy, Mega Turrican, Panorama Cotton, Marvel Land, Herzog Zwei, etc., etc. Honestly I don't even know why I put Jurassic Park there. Guess just to fill space. I've been meaning to make a new and improved list for some time now but now that the Wiki exists it's kind of pointless now. Oh well! That's the stupid history behind that dumb image, anyway.

And to be honest, as much as I love the Genesis, I've always preferred the Super Nintendo version of Shadowrun.

What separates the bad controllers from the good ones is the bad D-pads are mushy. Accuracy is important for D-pads especially, and the round, disc like D-pads make it much, much easier to hit a diagonal when you mean to press a cardinal direction.

Generally speaking, /vr/ doesn't really like recommended charts. This one >>2284778 even caused a huge shitstorm when it was made. It's been our general opinion that since the games are almost all easily emulated, you should just play what sounds interesting to you and go from there. >>2278569 this one being the exception due to how large the PC library is and how little anyone knows about it.
>would rather use a DS4 then a 360 controller, which quite commonly the second choice since its easily available.
>second choice
>since its easily available.
>not "since its the most comfortable"
I've always hated the way Sony's controllers are laid out, even the Saturns plate that they tried to pass off as a controller got the layout right.

This is really outdated.

the NES doesn't really need one, since the everdrive is only $100, which for anything but GBA/DS is a pretty good deal.
Genesis has the Everdrive MD as an alternative to the Mega Everdrive, which is ~$75 and has fewer features, but still works fine if all you care about is playing roms. In other words, you aren't a dev, you don't care about possible online mulitplayer in the future, and you don't want to use it as a Sega-CD memory card.
Snes also has the alternative of the Super Everdrive for $80, but it doesn't have compatibility with quite a few games (namely, most of the special chipsets), and several other major drawbacks. In other words, its really not worth it, just buy the SD2SNES.

there's no version of the chart with those, but they do exist.
GB/GBC has an everdrive now, and NDS has the DS2. PSP can be easily softmodded, just google it, I dont know the specifics anymore since its been several years since I did my 3000. There's a 3DS card out already, and some more advanced ones in the works assuming they haven't been released yet (idk, haven't looked into it in awhile). And lastly I know jack and shit about vita hacking since I don't own one.

Not sure what you mean by "our" general opinion, but I do not agree with this line of reasoning at all.

There is a mess of retro video games out there. Just because they are easily accessed with emulators doesn't mean it isn't useful to distill the "essentials" or hidden gems- it saves a profound amount of time for people just getting in to it.

The same line of reasoning would lead to no genre/best charts on /mu/ which have become a central component of that board. Yes, they may cause shit storms, but those can eventually be a productive thing for a board as long as most parties involved are level headed.
