Lots of games get released and are forgotten for one reason or another, often due to circumstances beyond their actual quality. We’ve compiled a short list of some games that deserve a sequel but never got one. It’s not too late to change that, publishers!

Easter eggs, special secrets hidden in video games by the developers, have been with us since the Atari 2600. As time went on, however, game creators got more and more imaginative with their special little gifts. The Genesis was no exception, and we’ve compiled ten of the best in one handy list for you. Read the latest installment of our Lists of Fury series and see what you may have been missing for all these years!
Licensed games have traditionally been the bane of game consoles. While it’s true that many of today’s releases are actually quite playable, lulling gamers into a sense of safety about the quality of licensed games overall, there was a time when people cringed at the prospect of playing one (NES X-Men, anyone?). However, if you pick through the garbage, there are some true gems on the Genesis that not only should be played but given a permanent place in one’s collection.
Everyone loves top ten lists. Well, they at least love to hate them. Truth is, you can pretty much count down anything, so why not make it interesting? Our newest feature series, Lists of Fury, takes a look at things that are bound to piss off Genesis fans… piss them off at Sega, at Nintendo, at modern games – heck, even at us! The very first installment counts down those game series that should never have ventured outside the safe confines of their 16-bit yards and the train wrecks they become since doing so. Read about them and then head over to our forums and vent!
Nothing screams “communication breakdown” like bad box art. To have a game be in development for months, sometimes years, and have the end result of so much effort be wrapped in an ugly box tends to give the impression that no one gave a crap anymore by the time distribution came. Too many times this is true. However, there are actually quite a few cases where the game inside the box belies its unattractive shell and is either a decent play or true classic. Come along as Sega-16 takes a look at ten of the best Genesis games to overcome their promotional handicaps and actually make something of themselves.
