Top 5 Post Dreamcast Sega Games

I remember when I first heard about Sega leaving the console hardware business. I was so confused! Sega had always been the counter to Nintendo. Nintendo made consoles, Sega made consoles, but now there were going to be Sega games on Nintendo consoles! For anyone who grew up in the 90’s, this was crazy news. We learned in hindsight, that Sega of Japan was ran by a group of rabid monkeys or something. Purposefully sabotaging their company due to their jealousy over the success of Sega of America. I can’t think of any other reason for the disastrous handling of the Sega Saturn here in the states. Anyway, for whatever reason, Sega continued to make high quality games (let’s ignore most of the Sonic series here), and these are my favorites:

Top 10 Sega Genesis Games

I have been reading Console Wars by Blake J. Harris recently. I have not finished it, but it's been a good read, and very insightful to the goings-on in the early 90's video game scene. The Sega Genesis has been one of my favorite consoles for a good long time now, and may just be my favorite console of all time. This website has already seen a top ten of Genesis games, but I have my own opinion, I swear!

Top 5 Commodore 64 Songs

I'm gonna be up-front and honest here: This week's article is completely self-indulgent.

I'm a sucker for a good song made on inferior hardware. So, naturally, old video game songs are quite high on my list of things I like. And, personally, the songs that were made and played on the old computer system, the Commodore 64, are extremely technically impressive alongside being great songs in their own rights.

Keeping in mind that I'm musically illiterate, let's take a look at'em!

Sega Master System: Top... Five?

So here we go. The most nostalgic console for me.

Yes, more than the NES.

My older brother had an NES and a Master System when I was growing up. His selection of NES games wasn't all that... Impressive? Hell, I can barely remember what he had for it.

But that Master System I remember.
