    Default What's your favorite Sega game from the different systems over the years?

    While they're basically dead, they had a very long history just like Nintendo so I felt a companion thread was needed, Sony probably could use one too at this rate.

    Sega lasted a long time as Service Games and eventually went from video games into home systems. You've got your SMS, Genesis (32X and Sega CD addons), Saturn, Dreamcast, Gamegear, Pico and more, so what's your favorite game on the systems you've owned or used?

    There were a few systems that only hit Japan or down in South America if you've used or own them have at it.

    Never liked Columns, just was never as engaging as say Tetris. I thought Stargate was a fun puzzle title for the GameGear though.

    Two things I liked about Columns were the music, and 'Flash Columns' mode. It was the only falling tile puzzler I played back in the day which had a goal to shoot for (removing the flashing gem), rather than just surviving as long as possible and scoring more points. I've never heard of Stargate (well, besides the Defender sequel).

    On a side note, I'm the only person I know who likes KLAX.

    It's a movie tie-in that's universally panned for being nothing like the movie, and not a platformer like the console releases.

    You collect falling hieroglyphs in a stacking ring. You're given a pattern to match: from which you can either collect three of kind of each individual symbol or match the pattern. There's a vs mode against the computer AI that's pretty much one big game of SOS, you play puzzle bouts to claim sections of the board and if you gain the majority control you win.

    Ohhh! Stargate, as in the movie Stargate. Yeah, I never knew that there was a puzzler game released. Now I'm curious.

    I actually kind of like that version of Stargate. My mom is a big puzzle game enthusiast, especially on Game Gear. Stargate, Tesserae, Bust a Move, Mean Bean Machine, Woody Pop, Columns, Klax... she actually turned me on to that one.

    I love Klax! It's hard as hell but it's one of the best classic puzzle game. More amusing then Tetris, too. I've only played the NES version though

    Klax is fun, but it gets nasty fairly quick. My first experience was a cabaret? (mini) arcade cab on a trip. It was one of a few games in a room I'd hit up when I could, and then later on I found a used copy for the NES and had that around for years.

    I wouldn't say Columns is my favorite game on a Sega system, but favorite puzzle stuck on there yes with Chu Chu Rocket being in second.

    Master System: R-Type. Still amazed at what a good port it is.
    Genesis: Castlevania Bloodlines. Can never get enough classic Castlevania.
    Saturn: Galactic Attack. I really enjoy this one, but admittedly haven't played a ton of Saturn games.
    Dreamcast: Shenmue. One of my all-time faves.
    GameGear: Streets of Rage 2. Fun little beat-em-up, which I have a big soft spot for. Like the Saturn, I haven't exactly played lots of GG games.
    I'm just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe.

    I think that even if you had played a ton of Saturn games, Galactic Attack would still be an outstanding choice. I think it's still my favorite shooter for the system, even after playing the Radiant Silverguns and Battle Gareggas out there... awesome game!

    Genesis = Gaiares (my first party pick would be Sonic 2)

    Sega CD = Ground Zero Texas

    Sega 32X = Virtua Racing Deluxe (possibly the only redeeming piece of software on the system)

    Saturn = Sega Rally

    Dreamcast = Shenmue (probably doesn't hold up, but it was amazing when I first experienced it)



    If I picked Sonic 2 over Gaiares, it would have been all games published by Sega, and mostly developed by Sega. But I have to go with Gaiares.
