A few days ago, I saw the Sega Genesis Classic Game Console
for the first time and I realized that it would be a retro-gaming hit this Christmas.
AtGames has packaged 90 of the best games that were ever made for the Sega Genesis (80 games built into the console plus 10 more games in a "Bonus Cartridge") so they can be bought for about $65, and in some places, considerably less.
My son in elementary school loves Sonic the Hedgehog. He was Sonic the Hedgehog for Halloween. So, imagine how much he will love this console, because it includes these games:
- Sonic the Hedgehog
- Sonic the Hedgehog 2
- Sonic 3D Blast - Flickies' Island
- Sonic Spinball
- Sonic and Knuckles
I'm confident that this standard definition (480i) console is playable on the entertainment system accessible from the rear seats of our SUV. Several of the other retro games we've reviewed over the years at Operation Gadget have worked well in the car (such as Jakks Namco Arcade Classics), and this one should be no exception. So this will be great for post-Christmas trips to arenas that aren't in our neighborhood, as well as visits to family and friends in other cities.
