    If you like the sega CD, you can't go wrong with the neo geo CD. I'd also recommend that for all your 16 bit CD needs.

    In no particular order:

    Sonic CD - The most essential Sega CD title that wasn't just another Sonic game.
    Robo Aleste CD - Probably my favorite shmup: strong controls, great music score, beautiful level detail, and fantastic mecha designs.
    Lunar: Silver Star CD - If Meatloaf's "I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)" was a video game.
    Lunar II: Eternal Blue CD - If Meatloaf put out a video game sequel that was just as great as "I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)".... but with better graphics.
    Snatcher CD - Overpriced? As of late, yes, but overrated? No way, this epic cyberpunk thriller is truly captivating. Hunting down a bunch of killing-machines in the ambiguity of a futuristic Japan while uncovering your amnesiac past has never been so much fun; complimented by some of the finest English dubbing - Snatcher makes you feel like part of the game rather than just playing it. Great experience.

    Honorary mentions: ShadowRun CD.... Well, I'm lying - I've never played it, but it looks so damn cool! Will someone please write a review on this?!

    Robo Aleste - Phenomenal Vertical shooter. MUSHA is more frantic but this one is more polished.
    Snatcher - The best digital comic game ever made.
    Android Assault - Phenomenal Horizontal shooter.
    Popful Mail - Super fun sidescrolling action/adventure game.
    SoulStar - Takes some getting used to, but it's amazing, really shows what the system was capable of.

    Earthworm Jim: Special Edition - all the greatness of EWJ, with an extra level and CD music
    Battlecorps - awesome FPS for the SCD
    Ecco: The Tides of Time - the best Ecco game (IMO) with awesome music
    Sonic CD - not my favorite Sonic game, but still a great Sonic game with a unique game design
    Silpheed - great shooter with awesome background video

    People keep forgetting he asked that you say WHY you recommend the games, not just a simple list.

    There's no forgetting about it with regard to my post. I just didn't give enough of a shit to bother.

    I'm not willing to nominate the following games for a Top 5, nor do I feel like I've spent enough time with the Sega CD library to do so -- but if you're looking for cheap, fun titles, you could do worse than these:

    Sol-Feace - an excellent shmup/shooter that's marred by a frustrating continue system (bumps you back to Stage 5), but it's cheap and the Redbook audio is nice

    Wirehead - so far the best FMV-driven game I've played, as long as you accept that you must map it out (or have a damn good memory); wonderfully ridiculous, and even has a few semi-secrets

    AH-3 Thunderstrike - genuinely impressive graphics help make this a fine way to scratch that early-3D helicopter itch

    Lethal Enforcers - I think the Sega CD big box might be cheaper than the regular Genesis one, or maybe I just got a good deal, but either way I think the added CD assets make a real difference here

    Earnest Evans (JPN) - just adds Redbook audio and cutscenes to the cart version, but somehow they elevate the game, which has been aptly described as a "beautiful mess"; Japanese-exclusive, dirt cheap, but you'll need some sort of bypass cart or region-free BIOS to run it on non-JPN hardware

    Also, five cheap titles I'd recommend avoiding:

    Star Wars Chess - silly garbage, buggy interface, doesn't even play a good game of chess

    Star Wars: Rebel Assault - if you can play this on 3DO instead, do it; the Sega CD version seems tolerable at first, but several later levels (and all of Hard mode) are totally inscrutable thanks to the trashed graphics

    Black Hole Assault - this has no more than an hour of gameplay in it, and it's not good gameplay

    Racing Aces - a few people out there vouch for this game, but I gave it a solid effort a while back and still found that the low framerate made it abominably unplayable

    Anet Futatabi (JPN) - the third game in the El Viento trilogy, and one of the saddest excuses for a beat-'em-up I've ever played; just watch the cutscenes on Youtube and skip the game

    #1 Batman Returns CD - The Driving Scenes and the Music are unbelievably cool.
    #2 Final Fight CD - Best conversion period, including crappy compilation and emulated DLC versions.
    #3 Amazing Spiderman vs. Kingpin - Awesome Action Platformer in a relatively non-linear open city, cool real time cutscenes.
    #4 AH3 Thunderstrike - Great use of the Graphics CoProcessor, Missions and Action better than the entire Strike series.
    #5 Blackhole Assault - Decent fighter with cool cutscenes, level designs and awesome music. I wanted a sequel with more moves.

    Popful Mail - A fun, unique Action RPG with a cute story and great voice acting from Working Designs.

    Lunar: TSS & Lunar: Eternal Blue - Classic RPGs if you're into that

    The Terminator - A fun game with good music, and unique to the system. Also relatively cheap compared to others.

    Sewer Shark - You need a bit of FMV and this was a pack-in for a reason. It's cheap, fun, and not too punishing if you get used to playing it.

    Shining Force CD: the real Shining Force games are as good as games get and this is much more than a Game Gear compilation. The game play and aesthetics are more polished than the Genesis entries and the games are more enjoyable without the not-really-roleplaying filler between battles.

    Cobra the Space Adventure: the most enjoyable and balanced digital comic adventure I've played so far. Really justifies the CD format more than most games. The pitch perfect localization really seals the deal.

    Lunar EB: Silver Star was an experiment that got kicked out the door long before it was finished. Eternal Blue is finely polished all round and a fun epic game, even with the WD meddling.

    Keio Flying Squadron: even if you're not a shooter fan, this game is worth playing just to experience the amazing visuals. Although technically impressive, it's the unque characters and artwork that are the signature of this special game.

    Lords of Thunder: a great port of an amazing and underappreciated game. It doesn't matter if the original version is better is some ways, the Sega-CD version is still gorgeous and super fun. One of my favorite games for all platforms.

    My top 5 would be:

    Terminator 1-- I am a huge Terminator fan imo this is the best Terminator game ever made. I love the soundtrack and the game is a ton of fun.

    Final Fight-- I am also a huge Final Fight nut. This was the best and most arcade accurate version at the time. Blows the poor SNES version out of the water.

    Lethal Enforcers-- Loved the arcade game and I love the Justifier. I also enjoy the less censorship to the SNES version. I can play this over and over.

    Demolition Man-- The music upgrade makes this game make the list. I get so pumped up playing this game. Plus it plays a lot faster then the SNES counterpart. Movie was great too.

    Robo Aleste-- Fantastic shump. Great colours and fast paced action. It feels like an arcade game to me.

    Besides the great titles that our comrades posted , i'll add a few more:

    Dark Wizard - A truly excelente RPG/Strategy game with great art and character design, good gameplay and extremelly imersive. And has Shinobi as secret member to your party!

    Flashback - It was great on the Mega Drive, but the new animations and especially the new CD soundtrack makes it a killer game.

    Mickey Mania has a great Sega CD version as well.
