Once I finished the list I was hoping for this. I thought it was an easy win for Sonic in the beginning. Looks like it will be down to the wire.Count me in!
It’s a nail biter between StH2 and SoR2!
I have a Sega CDX, but I only own Streets of Rage in that series and Sonic CD in the Sonic series. I have the Sonic collections for OG XB and XB1 though and the Streets of Rage collection for X360/XB1.
I think the third one is more approachable. I do enjoy all 3 though, even the "reboot" one.Splatterhouse 3 would go so well for October. It’s a good game, but I think 2 may be a bit better. Shame there’s no Ghouls N’ Ghosts, either. It’s the best game on the Genesis.

I still try to 1CC the first one from time to time.
I had Super Ghouls N Ghosts when I was younger and swore by the damn game until I played the Genesis one years later. Beats the hell out of Super.
I had both games at both the Genesis as well as the SNES launches back in the day. I felt like Super was a graphical showcase game that went more with the agility mechanic (double jump) while scaling back offensive capability significantly. The controls also feel a lot more floaty as well. Of the two, Ghouls N’ Ghosts also has a more dark tone that lends itself to the smaller color palette of the Genesis and the gameplay is fast and snappy.
Super was very well designed - some of the best sprite work of that generation.
Thank you so much on the offer! I'm currently stuck at work now but I already started cooking the OT.I hope it will make the SoR2 fans proud, while attracting some gaf members to one of the best Beat'em Ups ever created.
I was personally going for a new OT but since the people that voted on this one, could ended up missing the new OT I thought it was the best course of action. I saw that they've kept the same thread on the SNES one as well.I voted for Sonic, but I can't be mad. I own the soundtrack in a couple different formats. I'll be doing my playthrough as Blaze, but I know the game well enough that I could probably do a book club off the top. What's the plan then, new OT or does this one change form every month?
Still up for debate on when we'll see them, but we'll see them again for sure.I think a new thread each month makes the most sense.
Also, what's the plan with the games that don't get chosen? Do they just go on the poll for the next month?
This might sound a bit mad but what about a list of games that released in that month (in North America) so next month is November and I did a quick check on Wikipedia and picked out a few games that released in November on the Genesis.Still up for debate on when we'll see them, but we'll see them again for sure.
Maybe keep the second and third places on next month poll and rotate the forth and fifth places?
Then, we use the 3 free slots with your suggestions. It gives the best performing games another chance to shine, while keeping the rotation interesting and fresh for everyone.
That was my original idea, but please I do welcome any suggestions.
Whatever you do, don't play on hardest while streaming, just because "normal was too easy"....then die at the last boss.I'll start with Streets of Rage 1, let's see if I'm still any good at it.

And do the walk of shame, after going through codes to retry the last stage....to finally beating the game, on hardest at least.
Then again, let's try to focus on SoR2, guys. Hopefully I'll be able to playthrough again this weekend.
Is there some way to downvote it when it hits the choices? What an horrible game, I almost sold my Genesis to get a SNES when I saw Sonic pinball in action.
Devil's crush is where it's at!
Beat this game a ton on Genesis, then again in that remake game.
Always took Axel, and a few times Max. Never used Blaze or Skate. lol
Axel is too easy though. You can Grand Upper through the game. Also, watching speed runs, it's amazing how people blow through the game doing Max atomic drops. I tried doing it after watching vids and it's harder than you think to coordinate doing them non-stop.
I guess I wasn't paying attention either. Speedrunners know how to glitch patterns out of bosses to do easy moves on them.
