Today SEGA are a third-party game publisher, but they also developed a number of game consoles before they abandoned console hardware. This SEGA console timeline provides a chronology of SEGA’s game consoles dating back to their first consoles of the early ’80s up the Dreamcast.
Fans of the Sega Genesis game console used to be stuck in front of the TV. But not if they have have the Sega Genesis Retrogen Handheld Game console, they aren’t. Pop a Sega Genesis cartridge into the slot and play the 16-bit game in full color on the portable LCD screen. Hurray for retro!
Remember those great Sega Genesis games? Want to play them again without having to sit down at a computer or TV? So pull out some batteries and power up the retro-bit. It’s like having a Game Gear again, but with the graphics and quality of the Sega Genesis built into a hand held.
While it won’t make many lists for the greatest home consoles, the Sega Saturn holds a special place in gaming history. Though it was obliterated by the PlayStation, it was the second most successful console of the era and had some classic titles. As such, these titles need to be released on the VC.
The Virtual Console is one of the best parts of owning a Wii. Though there are great titles out there, there are five Genesis titles that are missing from the VC. These five titles represent what made the Genesis and the 90s era of gaming so special.
The Sega Dreamcast gaming console came and went but it left with us some games that helped inspire and challenge games of today. I have compiled a list of the top five Dreamcast games that did just that.
