Home Alone is a holiday classic, and the licensed Sega games are of surprising quality. The Game Gear port of the Genesis version is underrated, as it does a great job of maintaining the 16-bit version’s gameplay and charm. It’s one most people have likely missed.

Shanghai II: Dragon’s Eye
Mahjong is an ancient game that remains as challenging and engaging as ever, and publishers have been striving to make the perfect game for years. Activision’s Shanghaii series is well-known and loved, and the Genesis port of Dragon’s Eye is about as close as one can come to Mahjong bliss on the console.
Despite the licensing curse that plagues most movie games, Home Alone wasn’t all that bad. With well-designed levels and solid gameplay, it manages to stay true to its source material while offering something original. This is definitely one to check out, and many people may have ignored it due to the license.
