That was a good read, as you've delved into how this is a quantitative selection, rather than picking the actual best games.

It is something of a joke how there's constant Mega Drive releases, espcially with the original Sonic, whislt many remakes and modernisations are often less than stellar. After releaisng a big compialtion, they release them individually over XBLA and PSN. Barely an attempt to modernise the visuals.

Yu've made the assumption that the reader is one who wants to make a nostalgia trip to their Mega Drive games, which is fair enough, but if I'm going to be really nit-picky it's just that you haven't described much actual gameplay, especially on the hit titles. But more me I fully understood what you were saying for I am a Mega drive fanboy.

There three types of people in this world: those who can count, and those who can't.

I actually ended up writing an entire paragraph about a number of good games included in the collection, but I scrapped it when I realized it was sidetracking the main point of the review. As for not delving deep into the gameplay of the games on the collection, I intentionally do that with all the collection reviews I do, though, I guess I could have attempted more "in passing" comments like I did with the games I mentioned towards the end of the review.

Thanks for the comments!

I head spaceshit noises.
