Posted 4/29/2008 2:26:55 PM , The Genesis Freaking OWNED.
Score: 0 


Last night, I unpacked some of my game collection gear, and saw my Genesis for the first time in a while.

Good GOD that system owned. Shinobi, Thunderforce, Sonic, Madden, NHL, After Burner 2, Phantasy Star, Out of this World, Mortal Kombat, Streets of Rage, Desert Strike...

During lunch, me and 2 other guys just had a 1/2 hour conversation about games, and now I just want to PLAY.

I always thought the stereo headphone jack on the original model was a stroke of genius. Especially since I didn't have or know anyone with a stereo television at the time.

 Yep! And I'm happy that my friend offered to sell me his original Genesis for $80 =D

Sonic 2 in stereo at 3am.

Wait - you paid $80 for your Genesis?  Was that when it was first out, or had it been out there a while?  I remember my rev 1 Genesis (Altered Beast included) was like $180. 

I remember because I was, I think 14-15 at the time, so I couldn't drive myself to the store.  My brother was headed out with his girlfriend, and offered to pick it up for me.  I was excited beyond belief.  I was a mere hour away from playing the Genesis.  

But...  I was THREE GODDAMNED DOLLARS SHORT.  

My brother didn't have two pennies to rub together, so he couldn't complete the sale for me, so he brought my money back home.  Through some weird whirlwind of not finding any work or any spare change or anything, it was a whole week before I could pull together that last three bucks. 

Think about that, even when you were a kid, how hard was it to scratch together 3 lousy bucks?  I was so disappointed.

 

The upside to the story is that when I got that Genesis, I played Altered Beast for days because I didn't have any other game.

Wait.  That's not an upside...

 LOL. No, my Genesis came quite late in it's lifespan. But I also got two controllers and two games. Biohazard Battle and the original MK3...later to be overshadowed by Ultimate MK3 =).
