November 1994 pal model 2 with Sonic 2 bundle and for Christmas I got Super Street Fighter 2 + 6 button IR twin controllers pack. Oh that is my glory xmass from all. I still remember how in love I was with my Sega model 2 when my mates had model 1's.
Xmas 1988, a japanese Model 1 import. It was awesome because for a long time I was the only kid in town to own that new, egdy 16-bit console. Suck it, Nintendo! :P
1998, I was in a game shop and wanted a different console to play. I was not a fan of the Genesis before that time but figured maybe it was time to give the system a shot. Picked up this model 2 (since retired in favor of a model 1) and got some games for it from a classic game shop that was in the area at that time (their game prices weren't so nice though). Long story short I eventually went to Toys R Us and picked up re-releases of CV Bloodlines and Contra HC, I then quickly fell in love with my "new" console and about a little over a decade later started seriously collecting for it .
