Best Mega Drive Games

The Mega Drive. The Genesis. Whatever you called it, it was a plastic chunk of brilliance, arguably the finest machine Sega ever stuck its name on (sorry Dreamcast).

While it lived in the shadow of the SNES for much of its life, a fine rostra of games kept the console competitive - and 25 years on, many of them still shine as beacons of gaming brilliance.

From hard-as-nails brawlers to blisteringly quick platformers, these are the finest games we ever played on the Mega Drive system.

Let us know your favourites in the comments below.
