Compare specs, graphics, post pics, etc. Which was more capable? Which had the best games?

>> No.3184883

Visual capability:


SMD > PCE > SNES (lol, 64k sram)

SMD (6-button) > PCE (6-button) > SNES > SMD (3-button) > PCE (2-button)

Overall winner: Sega Mega Drive

>> No.3184897

This is kinda debatable, sure the PCE doesn't have many slowdowns, but that's mainly because all the games have shittons of flickering.

SMD had fucktons of arcade ports but also rocket knight adventure wich is my favorite SMD game and is pretty long i think

Does the 6 button PCE controller have a different Dpad than the 2 button PCE controller?

How do the differing Dpads on the 6 and 3 button MD controllers compare?

>> No.3184931

enjoy 90% of the library being snk games and 95% of those games being rehashed fighters, lol

>> No.3184968

theres not that many fighters, those numbers are outright invented and a product of your imagination

>> No.3184972

Neo geo doesn't have that many fighters like you think. There's a decent amount of shoot em ups, beat em ups, puzzle games and platformers as well.

>> No.3184973

I'm a hardcore PCE fan, however let's be honest, there are barely any 6 button capable games

SNES had some cute graphics but was complete garbage in terms of games that were actually fun. Streets Of Rage series, Gunstar Heroes, Alien Soldier, Thunder Force IV, etc. None of these were possible on the SNES.

They're good at different things.

Genesis will lose on colors to SNES, but will win on speed (throwing sprites around quickly with less slowdown).

Genesis can do matrices on sprites better while SNES can do matrices on backgrounds better.

Sound's a completely different kettle of fish. Genesis will win on the techno beats while SNES will win on the pseudo-orchestra.

>> No.3185416


>> No.3185489

What does it mean to do matrices?

>> No.3185503

Scaling and rotation.

Mega Drive could do sprite scaling on the horizontal axis, SNES could do none. However, it had a far more powerful background tilemap.

Only in terms of colour count, and the mode 7 rotation. Genesis wins in everything else (more planes, more windows, larger resolution).

SNES only had better sound on paper. In practice, it all sounds like muffled compressed shit with bad instrument samples. Neither has the clarity of chiptunes nor the quality of CD.

>> No.3186534

I'm not trying to start shit here, but what were the standout titles on Turbographx? I know SNES was known for its Mario games, platformers and RPGs. Genesis was mostly about Sonic, shmups, and other fast action titles.

Where did the Turbographx sit compared to those two? I only grew up around Nintendo/Sega so I never got exposure to TG16/CD until much later in life. Now I hear so many people calling it their favorite system of all time, so I have to wonder what it brought to the table that was so compelling. Of course, most of them are probably just hipsters, but it definitely has its following. I'm legitimately curious.

>> No.3186538

It had the best versions of Hudson games of the 4th gen.

>> No.3186559

TG-16 only had an 8-bit CPU.
SNES had BY FAR the best sound.

Check Youtube for some snes/genesis game music collections to see it by yourself.

Enjoy your low-bitrate reverbed songs because the DSP couldn't handle decent quality sizes.

I'm pretty sure the consensus is Genesis sounded like shit (in comparison to the SNES). Calling it Genesis triggers you, doesn't it?

Don't fucking talk for me, nigger.

>> No.3186661

The Genesis sounded like shit because very few people knew how to program sound for it.
Most games sound like a nigger hitting an anvil with a giant hammer, but there's a few games that had a fucking amazing soundtrack.

I'll take chiptunes (you know, real videogame music) over Stupor Nintendo's MIDI-tier garbage.

I'd agree with you... but "niggers" (as you call them) who play instruments usually make good music.

Because you're too underage to understand.

Keep acting like you're "of age" when you're probably some dumb ass 21 year old idiot

I am 40 years old and you're factually incorrect. Console wars are as relevant now as they were in the '90s.

Turbografx had a tiny library with only a few gems. It's rising sun counterpart, the PC Engine, had a nice fat library full of great shmups, puzzlers, Bomberman, Bomberman, Bomberman.
