Streets of rage 1,2,3: for sheer multi-player fun. Task Force Harrier EX: graphics where muddy, but game play was fun. Mortal Kombat: The vibe of dread and the music score just made that the game fantastic. Sonic Series: Even my little niece comes over to play it.
Altered Beast - The pack-in game that said you had an arcade equivalent powerhouse, er, in your house! Phantasy Star II - Paid a fortune when it came out. I knew nothing about moe anime chicks at the time. I just knew I could *not* let Nei die. Oh, and the ending was harsh. Gunstar Heroes - Basically loved it for being such a graphical show off. "Genesis does" as they say. Valis III - Action and storyline even before Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Three playable characters and awesome art and music. Star Control II - What a waste of 24megs! Still, I get mesmerized by the computer controlled battles. Might & Magic II - Played the stuffing out of the third game. Still playing the second. Yes, I do use saves exploiting bugs
Over 10 years ago I had a chance to buy Cutie Suzuki Ringside Angel and failed. Mom and pop video game shops go out of business too fast! It's one of those games that you watch rather than play for some reason
Toejam and Earl, Herzog Zewi (I have great memories of beating my little brother at this), Zombies ate my Neighbors, Sonic the Hedgehog series (3+knuckles was the best!), Rise of the Dragon, and last but not least.. the Lunar Series for SegaCD.
I don't know if Lunar and Rise of the Dragon counts, because they're on the SegaCD.. But they're still classics! :-)
