The Sega Mega Drive / Genesis was the probably most successful Sega game console and for a good while a very strong competition for Nintendo and their Super Nintendo. Good competition means often the best for the consumer and in the early nineties it meant that we consumers got a lot new games and game series by Sega since they tried to compete with Super Mario and Co.

The with no question most popular and still relevant game character who saw its first game on the Mega Drive is of course Sonic the Hedgehog. Did you knew that Earthworm Jim and even Wonder Woman were first seen on Sega’s 16bitter too?
