So I was browsing my......ahem, "good" set today, and felt compelled to play some of the titles from the Genny's first two years (or anything prior to that fateful day of June 23, 1991). They reminded me how unique the pre-Sonic Genesis era was. If the Genesis was a musical band, than "pre-Sonic" would be its "indie" years, when the band had a small, but loyal following, and little money to throw around.
Most of the big developers hadn't jumped on board the Genesis bandwagon yet, either because Nintendo had them by their balls or because they didn't see the console as a viable platform. Lesser-known developers and publishers (Seismic, Sage's Creation, Renovation, Kaneko, that Electronic Arts company) however, were happy to pump software goo into the nubile black box, and the results were often weird, sometimes crappy, yet equally unique.
What were your favorite pre-Sonic Genesis games, and for those who owned a Genesis that early on, care to share your experiences?
