The Megadrive was cool when you were a kid. That was pretty much it's sole defining feature. It was "edgy", it had the biggest numbers which made it better. All things we know attact teenagers. Back in the day, the Megadrive might well have seemed "the best". But with the benefit of hindsight, the SNES was actually a much better constructed console for the most part, with very few exceptions (where the greater grunt of the 16bit CPU could be employed).
The Megadrive is basically the Dragon Ball Z of the console world. You enjoy it when you're a kid, but when you're older, you start thinking "WTF mon". Still, theres a certain kind of sentimental familarity.
