I think today I'll toss some recs for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive

Streets of Rage 2 is the greatest beat em up video game ever made, and the best game on Sega's 16 bit console

Mazin Saga Mutant Fighter is another great beat em up, this time based on Mazinger Z. Really great animations, and a neat ass style change when you fight bosses

Castlevania: Bloodlines is the best 16 bit Castlevania. Best levels, two characters. Sorry, I don't make the rules.

Granada is a really neat and cute tank game with great controls. You get a weak little shot, a button to hold your position, and a huge ass shot that actually sends you flying back. Fun fun stuff

MUSHA seriously just play MUSHA please it's freaking amazing

Mamono Hunter Youko really tough action game with great designs. Emphasis on really tough

Alisia Dragoon is a neat action game where you play as a girl with sick lightning powers and a variety of familiars. You can charge up your main attack to be a huge screen wiping blast.

Contra The Hard Corps is the best 16 bit Contra, but only the Japanese version which gives you 3 hits before dying.

El Viento is a cool action game made by a group called Wolf Team who eventually went on to create the Tales of series. You play as the cool spell slinging boomerang tossing girl in the 20s trying to fight the resurrection of HASTUR.

OMG, Sega Genesis! ♥ This was my first "real" console (meaning, that I remember actually playing the games more than just casually testing the waters). Your recs are taking me back, haha! XD

I actually haven't played any of the ones on your list, although a lot of them sound awesome! I was all into Mortal Kombat, Sonic, Street Fighter II, the X-Men game, Ecco, Pirates of Dark Water, etc. XD

...I had so much fun with that system, lol.
