I think what makes one boards such a deeply unpleasant experience nowadays is people like you that come on here to act like you're better than everyone for whatever reason instead of just chilling out, trying to have a good time with people around you, and trying to make other people laugh. Instead you're just unpleasant, and it makes using the board a worse experience for everyone.

Obviously. Sega peaked with the Mega Drive/Genesis.

<Q2: what was the first sega game you played
It makes sense that Sonic would be number one, since it was packeged with the console (kinda hard for it not to be your first when it's the only game you have), but I am shocked to not see Madden on the list. The only advantage that the system had over the Super Nintendo was in the way that its fast scrolling rendered sports games. Was this poll taken only in Japan? I mean, that's the only reason I can think of for NHL, Madden, and NBA Jam not even being on the list. Whenever my friends were over, all anyone ever wanted to play were sports games or Streets of Rage. Hey, Streets of Rage is missing too! Japanese kids in the 90s apparently had no taste.

The Saturn got what it deserved. What a piece of junk. It played like it was cobbled together by monkeys using recycled PC parts. The pity of it was that developers made some truly badass games for it. Everything they tried was something new. Often times it didn't work, but when it did work the results were classic. It was also kind of cool that it had an actual web browser built into it.

Yeah, it's a Japanese poll of SEGA diehards. That's why you have stuff like the Saturn almost beating out the Genesis in the first question—I'm guessing the only reason the Saturn didn't take the top spot outright is due to the boomer skew of the respondents; it actually outsold the Genesis there, after all. That's also why you see stuff like Sakura Wars, which was never officially released outside Japan, ranked highly in the second question… though I honestly think it's fucking bullshit, I can't bring myself to believe that a ton of people's FIRST SEGA GAME was goddamn Sakura Wars and not like Daytona USA or something. Did they buy a Saturn just to play that game? I must really be underestimating its popularity.

>boomer skew
My boomer parents absolutely hated that my brothers and I spent all damn day on that thing. They so regretted that purchase. I remember how frustrated my mother would get that I wouldn't bother to come out to eat, because I was in the middle of marathoning Kid Chameleon. "I can't stop, Mom, we have to return it to Blockbuster on Monday!" Old school gaming was like old school music in that the most gratifying thing about it was that it pissed off our parents. Come to think of it, I don't believe I ever got them to so much as pick up the controller. More for me!
>it actually outsold the Genesis there, after all
Really? Now that's crazy. I remember them making add-on hardware like the Sega CD and the 32X just to keep the old Genesis going, because it was such a cash cow. That venerable beast ran for years. The Saturn, on the other hand, kept breaking down for one reason or another. From what I hear, the disk reader was little better than a laser pointer, and you always had to listen for scratching when it was running in case you had to quickly pop the disk out before it got too scored. It had good racing games, though. Daytona USA and Virtua Racing were great. Road Rash was epic just for the music–the album that came built into it was better than the actual game. Sega Rally Championship was a blast, and it's the only reason that I know about how awesome the Lancia Delta was.

Virtua Fighter was cool just for how significantly it changed the fighting genre. Am I wrong in thinking that Pai's counter throw was the first of its kind in fighting games? Putting somebody on the ground with that was good for so much trash talk. "What happened to your combo, bro?"

What. Do you think it would be there if they had polled Euros. Also, Madden and NBA Jam are multiplat, so of course they aren't associated with Sega in particular.

The hardware was rather unique quads as a 3d generalisation of sprites instead of triangles like everything else in existence including your PC A graphics card based on the Saturn was released for PC iirc

You guys would have posted NHL at least. Remember when the NHL games started including the European leagues like Elitserien and the Russian Superleague?
>Also, Madden and NBA Jam are multiplat, so of course they aren't associated with Sega in particular.
Yeah, but if you played Madden, you wanted the Genesis version. NBA Jam was an arcade game first, and it was one of the great quarter-munchers. I dropped a lot of money on that game at the arcade before I got the cheapo console version. Somebody would always run out of quarters before you got a chance to finish the game.
>3DO port.
True, true. It's a pity the 3DO didn't pick up more commercial traction than it did. It honestly was a better system.

It was definitely massive in Japan, at least for a time.
