I'm not sure why you felt the need to Xiaouplain graphics to me, I've done professional work as a graphic artist. I just prefer to be a network and systems architect.
Also unsure if you grasp that the genesis has a 9 bit system palette of 512 colors but was still capable of displaying 4,096 colors (total not at once).

In an effort to try and keep this topic on track for this objectively meh movie, there is a thread all about the Genesis and its wonderful colors:
http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,165910.0.html


I Noticed that you said  "Genesis FM SAMPLES"  The Genesis chip is  "FM SYNTHESIS"  NOT  "SAMPLES".
The SNES would be able to simulate anything the Genesis did via FM Synth samples.
I didn't say the Genesis used FM samples, I said the SNES could playback anything the Genesis made by sampling the audio, then playing it back on the SNES system.
It would not be 100% perfect but it would be serviceable. I'd say its like holding a tape recorder up to a radio :) IT IS FUN TO TYPE IN ALL CAPS TO HIGHLIGHT THINGS YOU MISUNDERSTOOD!

I'm *really* curious what your 7 games are. Please make a new thread called  "Steve's List of the only 7 Genesis games worth playing" so we don't derail this thread any more.
As for my top Gen games...  the ones that immediately pop to mind are:
You are missing a plethora of great Genesis games.
If you're replying to a troll you are part of the problem.
I also need to follow this advice. Ignore or report, don't reply.

...I peed.

You know you have achieved something when you get 'verbed'

Like being Kanye'd I believe...
Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools! I can fix it.

yes.
the dude on the forum who went from living in a van to having multiple arcade cabinets and a full workshop in a matter of months has this affect on me also. :)

As long as he stays out of politics, I generally like him.

Target Earth is so freaking hard Iím not sure anyone has actually beaten it, but there is a very simple cheat that makes you invincible.  Itís still an enjoyable game and the soundtrack thumps on a sound system.

For some reason I had a hard time getting through this.  I really enjoyed the beginning and ending but the middle just dragged for me despite it being a relatively short movie.  It was fun seeing the late 80's shopping malls recreated.

*cue Men On Film*
ďHATED IT!Ē

The only good thing was June Diane Raphael looking like a sexy teacher during the movie and a silver fox at the end of the movie.

This. Though admittedly it was OK for a one time watch. Maybe my expectations were too high ....
