It's a new year, so we're kicking off 2018 by looking for the top 10 games for the Sega Mega Drive.

Image

If you need a reminder, here's a list of Mega Drive games for you.

Just list your top 10 below (each counts for one vote, so ranking them isn't important).

Voting is open for a month, and will close on 26 January.

We were a 'Nintendo' family, so my memories of the Mega Drive come from playing at my friends' houses. I look forward to seeing what other games the members of GRcade nominate.

Phantasy Star 4
Shining Force 2
Herzog Zwei

Still using my Amiga 500+ at the time I picked up a MD very late into its life. Didn't have that many games for it, but those I did buy or borrow were very memorable.

1. Sonic the Hedgehog 2
2. Street Fighter 2: Championship Edition
3. Streets of Rage 2
4. Alien 3
5. Mortal Kombat 2
6. EA Sports Double Header (NHL/Madden)
7. Desert Strike
8. Golden Axe
9. Ghouls & Ghosts
10. Castlevania: Bloodlines

These lists are always meant to be about personal favourites Rex, they’re lists of what people loved not necessarily what people thought were the best games just because they were highly rated.

What's the official line on Sonic 3 & Knuckles? Can we include that as a single title?

If the combo is allowed then it's on my list otherwise the individual parts are probably not good enough to make the cut...

I can't put these in order, because the order would change daily. Video links included, because why not?

I say one, since it was originally made to be a single game but the cartridges couldn't fit it or something, thats why the expansion was made. And in several interviews for Generations, representatives have said that S3 and K are one game, that's why there's no Sonic 3 level [select?] ...

Twenty nights in the ice is a long time, when there's Hostiles On The Hill.

To be honest I could add the Konami games (notably Rocket Knight, Probotector, Castlevania), Capcom games like Street Fighter Special Champion Edition/Ghouls’n’Ghosts, any number of EA games, more Treasure titles, the Sega Disney games... but such is the way with lists.
