Mega Drive

PC

BORN IN 1988

The console that was home to Sonic the Hedgehog, one of the most recognisable and loved gaming characters in the world.  

The Mega Drive or Genesis (in the US) was also famous for a whole host of games from  Altered Beast to the action-packed Streets of Rage, Contra, Aladdin and Shinobi.  A console with so many features and add ons! It was a huge hit around the world in the 90's. 

As with the Master System vs the NES, Sega fought a hard console war with Nintendo. Especially in it's commercials, with the slogan 'Sega does what Nintendon't' and also used the slogan "do me a favour, plug me into a sega!"
