Title: Sega Genesis/Mega Drive or Super Nintendo? Which one would you choose?
Post by: Glisp on May 09, 2009, 01:44:51 pm
You know, there has always  been a fight between Nintendo and Sega Nerds about which was better of the two.

Now the Super Nintendo was know to be graphically and audibly superior to the Genesis. The system however suffered from severe slowdown at some points and had an issue where only a certain amount of data could be stored on a cartridge despite the Cartridge's file size being bigger than the Genesis' (which was in a heavily compressed format which allowed Genesis Ports of some multi-platform games to have more levels and voice sound effects than the SNES.)

However, the Genesis had some inside Technical working that enabled it to run at high framerates with hardly any slowdown. It also had an assortment of other "internal goodies" as well. It was however lacking in sound quality (Despite this some composers such a Yuzo Koshiro, were able to pull off some amazing soundtracks) and had issues with color palletes in some games due to limitations.

Now I leave it up to you to decide. If you like both then that's acceptable. Just no fighting.

Super Nintendo.  The specs are comparable, but the variety of games for the SNES is much better.

Hmm, I don't think I've had a Genesis, but my older brother had a NES, when I was a child, and then we got the SENS when it came out, so I'm fine with both the SNES and the Megadrive. (I own both, even though my SNES barely works, these days).

If we go by capabilities, then definitely the Sega Genesis. Colors don't matter, you can always use shading tricks to get more colors. (Especially when emulators are in TV Mode or on actual hardware and a TV.)

If we went by capabilities, the Game Boy would have been forgotten in the face of every other handheld out there. :^D

The Sega Mega Drive and Sega Genesis are the same system. The Mega Drive is called the Genesis here in the US because something was copyrighted with the name Mega Drive in the US. They are the same system other than that except for the NTSC/PAL Region differences of course.

Don't forget to add the Nomad into the mix! (Granted the battery life sucked but the system was win. Even if it didn't support 32X and Sega CD It was fun to play Geneisis games on the go. Someone actually figured out how to raise the Nomad's battery life too as well as making it 32X compatible.)

I also liked the Sega CDX. It was truly awesome to have a Portable CD Player that could be hooked  up to a TV and play Genesis and Sega CD games, just as long as it was plugged in.

This is a hard one, since Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis are my two favorite consoles. Growing up I had a Genesis and lots of disney games and Sonic games, and I enjoyed every single one of them (even the extremely hard Lion King.) I didn't get an SNES until I was old enough to buy stuff on eBay, but I previously played most of the games on emulators. Both consoles have a great library of games, and both are capable of great platforming (my favorite genre), so determining my favorite is almost impossible. However, if I had to choose only one, I say Sega Genesis because I grew up with it and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was my first game.

But aren't all debates polls, since they're just comparing one person's opinion against the other?
And on a related note, SNES, because it has Kirby Super Star on it (and Sonic is overrated)

SNES, because I've heard many awesome songs on it.

I choose the Genesis/32x/Sega CD combo.  That system pwns Super Nintendo anyday.

Don't forget to add the Nomad into the mix! (Granted the battery life sucked but the system was win. Even if it didn't support 32X and Sega CD It was fun to play Geneisis games on the go. Someone actually figured out how to raise the Nomad's battery life too as well as making it 32X compatible.)

I wouldn't mind a Genesis/Sega CD/Mega 32x combo with a Super Nintendo SPC processor. The SPC processor is what gives the SNES its superior audio capabilities.

Also, in some ways, the Genesis excels in graphics, in others, the SNES excels. Are there any SNES games that have the awesome parallax scrolling effects from Hydrocity Zone Act 1 in Sonic 3? I don't think so.

This is not to say, though, that the Genesis doesn't have any awesome songs. It has a lot, especially those from the Phantasy Star series.

Gamewise, I can't choose between either. Both are equally good in terms of games.

I agree with you there Mugendai. I grew up with both the SNES and Genesis simultaneously. As a result, my background culture taste in video games is mixed. I do enjoy the SPC on the Super Nintendo. In fact I ripped the whole soundtrack of Super Godzilla because people wanted it so badly. It came out very nice too. The Sound emulation is nearly perfect.

The YM2612 chip wasn't actually anymore superior or inferior to the SNES IMO. It just uses a different hardware than the SNES. It does have trouble with voices as they come out muffled but it still is a very good soundchip. The Genesis was meant to not only be backwards compatible with the Master System but it was also meant to mimic Sega-16 Arcade Hardware. the only bad part is that most ports of the Sega- 16 Arcade games were inaccurate or poorly made compared to their arcade version. In the early days of the Genesis, third party companies like Capcom kept the Genesis alive.

This is just a random fact that many hardcore Nintendo fans probably know already but, the SONY Playstation was originally Nintendo's idea. They were working on it with SONY until they backed out of the deal. SONY refused to let them and vowed to stop selling them their soundchips for their games. However it was ruled that this couldn't be done. So, out of an act of revenge, they dismantled the SONY-Nintendo Playstation and put it back together as the SONY Playstation.  Inadvertantly, Sega was caught in the midst of this Revenge plot and ended up becoming SONY's victim rather than Nintendo. Sega was already weak as it was. They were only starting to recover from the Massive loss of Sales that the Sega Master System lost them back in the day. This caused Sega to panic and release two 32 bit systems too quickly. First there was the Genesis 32X (Not really a system but an Add-On for the Genesis) which was rushed heavily. It never got to use its full graphics potential as it was short lived and many games in production for it were canned.  (Including Virtua Hamster which is about to be released by X-Cult really soon.)
Some other games, such as Doom 32X were released incomplete to meet the Holiday season. (Over half the levels from the original game are missing.)
The other 32-bit system is the Sega Saturn. The Saturn never caught on in North America. This was primarily because the SONY Playstation was taking the US by storm with its superior graphics. (Depsite the fact the Saturn was a 32-bit system, the polygon graphics were heavily grainy and pixelated.) The Saturn didn't even do well in the PAL region where before the Genesis (Mega Drive there) and the Master System had a hold on the market and Nintendo couldn't get a lot of leeway.

Surprisingly though, the Saturn mangaed to give Sega a comeback in Japan. Before the Saturn, Sega had almost no ground in Japan. Now however (especially with the release of Sonic Jam.) they managed to become better known in Japan. This helped them survive until the early 128-bit era. They released the Dreamcast. The Dreamcast had a hold on the Market in the US and was praised for being one of the first systems with online capabilities. (Yep, it had it before the XBOX 360, Wii, and PS3) However, when SONY Released the Playstation 2, things went downhill for Sega. The Dreamcast was actually only a 64-bit system, this is the reason why it was killed by the Playstation 2. The Sega Dreamcast also failed because (As I've heard.) the Dreamcast broke easily and the US Repair shop closed down which contributed to the mess. The biggest thing that killed Sega Though was the Genesis 32X. The failure to make it good caused many people to lose faith in Sega's credibility. That is why Sega no longer exists as a console making industry. They had a system already in the works that was 128-bit called the Blazengi, which used scrapped Samba de Amigo software, but it was canned when Sega went third party.

Its kind of sad in a way that SONY's revenge plot against Nintendo ultimately lead to Sega's demise as a console making industry....

Oh and actually I haven't played that game GARY. Actually I made a mistake when I said "Muffled"  The Game Dynamite Headdy's voices are anything but muffled. Maybe I was thinking of another word. Like, I guess lower in quality compared to the SNES' voices. It could actually have more voices on a game than the SNES could and more levels.

However, the Genesis had some inside Technical working that enabled it to run at high framerates with hardly any slowdown. It also had an assortment of other "internal goodies" as well. It was however lacking in sound quality (Despite this some composers such a Yuzo Koshiro, were able to pull off some amazing soundtracks) and had issues with color palletes in some games due to limitations.

No, both carts are the same size. (SEGA just never implemented 8MB Carts do to them not knowing it could be possible (No, no bankswitching is used in an 8MB cart on the Genesis)

Proof: http://piersolar.com

Sega Genesis = 8MB
SNES = 8MB

As for color, there's programming tricks that can be pulled off that allow for the Genesis VDP to give 128 colors instead of 64.  Though with the 32x, 32,768 colors can be on screen at the same time and then the Sega CD's 12.5KHz Motorolla 68000 can be used to run code while the Genesis's 7.52MHz (?) Processor can be used to run the music of all 24 sound channels and the two RISC processors in the 32x run graphics and matrixing.  The Z80 can be used to... read the controllers and transfer the data they give. :P

Let's not forget with the Sega MEGANET attachment we can connect and netplay on the internet (in theory) and we can extend RAM by using the 32x and inserting a RAM cart while the main game is run off the SegaCD.

Also, I'd love to see a Super Nintendo do this:  http://piersolar.com/pier-solar-video.php (Watch the first video)

Technical specifications are nice to throw around willy-nilly, yes, but what can the consoles actually do with them? Because I'm pretty sure the only good game for the Megadrive is Zero Wing. SNES on the other hand has Earthbound, Super Mario RPG, A Link to the Past, Super Mario World, F-Zero, just to name a few.

Before some of you Nintendo Fanboys start to harp about the Genesis' sound quality you'd better look at this. (Note this is a soundboard II mix and not an actualy Mega DRive Sound chip mix. However they are almost identical in terms of how they sound for the most part. The only difference with this version is the CD Quality audio since its part of the official OST:

NEVER EVER cite one source. 3 is good. For example:

If I were to say that x^2 = x, and just cite 0 and 1, I would not be putting up a strong argument.

If I were to say that cloning is bad (I almost spelled it cloan), I would say:

Human cloning is bad:
  1. The clone could not live up to parent's expectations
  2. The clone is not their child, so they could be harsh to it.
  3. It is still very theoretical and dangerous.

There is a decent argument. You may also want to state the other side as well. I know, it may not seem good, but it makes you look intelligent.

(I know, my argument is very concise for the sake of explanation.)

It was made using Sound Board II as it is from the official Streets of Rage Soundtrack. however it is almost identical to the way the Genesis version of music sounds minus the voice effects being slightly enhanced and the fact that it is CD Quality. However, the youtube video in low quality sounds just like the Genesis version of the music. I'll rip a version of the way it sounds on the Genesis and upload it somewhere if you aren't convinced still. Actually you know what. I'll do it anyway because I can!

Well, I was only 3 when the release of Sonic the Hedgehog Sega Master System II over here, and that was my first game, then Sonic the Hedgehog 2 came out, a while later, but when I was about 9, my brother had a NES, and the only game we had was Super Mario Bros 3, since the NES was highly old and we couldn't get any other NES games back then, then the SNES came out with Mortal Kombat Trilogy, Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, Street Fighter II: Turbo Edition, Super Mario World, Mario All Stars, and some other awesome games in my younger years, and we did have an Japanese version (I think it was) of a Mega Drive, and we had Mortal Kombat, and other games. I'm not taking sides, but I am a fan of both Sega, Nintendo. I grew up with Sega, but loved both Sonic and the Mario games when I was a kid. I do like other things, like Xbox, Play Station, but again I'm not a "fan girl" on one company/console like most are, but it's how I am. I've played a lot of good games over the years, but half of the names for the Master System, I don't remember, but I remember some, like Sonic the Hedgehog 1 and 2, Ninja (The one I used to play was difference, with the difference colored scrolls), Gangster Town, Rescue Mission, but the SNES, had one awesome game, my brother and I used to play was called, Zombies: Ate My Neighbors and I fucking loved that game as I thought it was funny with the little fuckers coming from cereal boxes with axes in a shopping mall it was great. There was another game on the Mega Drive, I don't remember the name but something about it well certain parts of it used to spook me shitless. Even now after all these years, (yes I still own 2 Dreamcasts), I was able to get a SNES and a Mega Drive II. There's a shop I know that sells old games/consoles, and I was able to get a few old games from there, but yeah I grew up around Sonic, then around with Mario, (Even I used to be up every morning watching the old cartoons, of Sonic and Mario), but there has been some awesome games on the Mega Drive and the SNES.

As a video game collectors , I would give the edge to the super nintendo but both system got instant hits.

The super nintendo got all the Nintendo Classic
The sega genesis got top quality arcade game made by sega themselves
Both system got killer game like street fighter , mortal kombat or the EA Sport Title

(the 32x is an addon to the Genesis/MegaDrive but is still considered part of the Genesis)

No offense Gary but the 32X is overrated. It would have been good if it had more games but it died off quickly and the selection of games it had were very few. Also number of good games such as Virtua Hamster never made it onto the market. Others such as Doom 32X were released incomplete. (Doom 32X was missing about half of the levels in the original version because of the fact it was rushed to meet the holiday season.) Also there weren't any good 32X CD games so it was kind of pointless.

The Sega CD is severely underrated on the other hand because it was capable of CD Quality Audio and just made things look better. Plus it had a little ability to imitate the SNES's Mode 7. (see Sonic CD's Special Stages for details.)

The only problem with the Sega CD was the lack of good titles. There were some and these ones are probably my favorites:

-Eternal Champions: Challenge From the Dark Side
-Both Ecco games as they are nearly the same as their Genesis counterparts. (the soundtracks were ruined by Spencer Nielson. I was hoping for CD Quality remixes of the Genesis Chiptunes from the Genesis versions. Instead I ended up with some Underwater ambeint sound type music, which sounds good but not spectacular.)

-Sega CD Jurassic Park. Its a nice little game but most people are mixed about it from what I've seen.

-Sonic CD (of course.)

-Earthworm Jim: Special Edition  (Has CD Quality audio remixes of all the tracks from the game which are composed by Tommy Tallarico. It also adds a new level called Big Bruty and some new items to the game. It even has the Intestinal Distress level that was in the Genesis version but not the SNES version due to cartridge space limitations due to the buffing up of graphic and sound quality. Also was released for Windows 95.)

-Wild Woody ( Okay, this game is actually a mockery among many. People say the game has one of the worst names ever. The game is generally seen as a collector's item. It was the last North American Sega CD game ever released. It ended up leaving Sega only to wind up in bargain bins. The game itself is actually pretty decent. The controls might be a bit confusing at first but eventually it seems like a really great game. If that's not enough, the soundtrack was composed by none other than the Heavy Metal Artist, Bumblefoot who is called Ron Thal in the credits. I've been to the programmer's website. He also programmed Sega CD Jurassic Park ironically. He doesn't really enjoy hearing the jokes made about this game since he worked hard on it while programming.)

Sega Genesis/Mega Drive. I grew up with it, and I personally think there are better games for the Genesis. Plus, I love the sound chip better than SNES' sound chip. (Yamaha 2612>Sony SPC 700) Plus call me crazy for saying this but, I actually like the 32X. xP
