I've never had a Mega Drive and I haven't yet gotten into catching up on it (besides a few standout Mega CD titles), I can only tell you the game on the base unit I've emulated the most so far is Splatterhouse 3 because I've grown a habit of booting it up for a few plays every Halloween.

I didn't either. Spent most of my teens emulating NES, SNES, and Gameboy games. Didn't discover most of the Genesis/Mega-Drive library until my 20's throuth Kega Fusion (other genesis emulators didn't work on my computer all that well).

Overrated. There's barely any level design, and has too many easily cheeseable bosses which aren't interesting to fight once you know the trick to defeating them (typically involving spamming phoenix force and milking health drops from boss projectiles).

Adventures of Batman and Robin is a great game too, but it has way too many drawn out downtime segments. Alien Soldier does get pretty easy once you've got the boss patterns down but the pacing is far better. I wish more games had the combat system of Adventures of Batman and Robin though, it's really good.

I love the game and it's unbelievably rocking FM master class soundtrack, but that one life (until eventually you get a chance to continue) is the only reason it's not my nr1, it's required A LOT of trail and error before you figure out how to make the decisions that cost you the least amount of damage to survive, one swooping bat at the wrong moment and it's game over and all the way back to the start. Kinda a big deal.
