68. NBA Jam
69. Pac Man 2 the New Adventures


72. Strider
73. Clayfighter
74. Earthworm Jim
75. Mickey Mouse in Castle of Illusion

77. Shadowrun
78. Road Rash
79. Kid Chameleon
80. Quackshot
81. Thunder Force IV
82. Wonder Boy in Monster World

Alright, I hope I eliminated all the duplicates.

I retired Gunstar Heroes from the list, for two reasons:

1. It's a strong contender for the number 1 slot (with good reason) and so I feel the poll will be more interesting without it, and
2. It's the one Genesis game that I actually have played all the way through, multiple times, because Brentai made me.

Anyway.

Starting with 82 is ... manageable. We'll do groups of 9, vote 4. I'll give the lucky last one an auto pass.

Alright, first up!

28. Monster World IV
60. JURASSIC PARK
39. Arcus Odyssey
27. Dynamite Headdy
30. ToeJam & Earl
75. Mickey Mouse in Castle of Illusion
36. Streets of Rage 2
2. Sonic 2
65. Splatterhouse 2

Vote for 4. I'll leave this up for a bit since it's the first one, but then go to the usual 48 hour voting cycle. Ties auto-advanced at this stage.

Remember, I will be actually playing (and giving my thoughts on) the top ten finalists.

Streets of Rage and Sonic are the only ones on this list I've actually played.

I still don't get Toejam & Earl, but I think someone told me it's a procedural collectathon?

Toejam & Earl is functionally a real-time roguelike (with a k) without the RPG elements, right down to every item type starting out unidentified. It can be a lot of fun but you have to be okay with getting randomly dicked over.

Splatterhouse 2 is hard to recommend as a "game" game, but it's so intensely what it is that it actually winds up kind of impressive, especially for its era.

Sonic 2 is what happened after Sega thought "what if we made Sonic again, but not shit", and then did it.

Streets of Rage 2 is still best-in-genre, don't @ me.

I'm not gonna challenge Go Straight or Expander. I mean, I've never played any of these games, but I routinely listen to those two tracks.

There's no good reason to ever play Sonic & Knuckles or Sonic 3 separately, so count my vote for Sonic & Knuckles as a vote for Sonic 3 & Knuckles.

Well if you absolutely need to hear those couple songs that are only in Sonic 3 and likely uncredited Michael Jackson songs there's that.

There's no good reason to ever play Sonic & Knuckles or Sonic 3 separately, but if you're only going to play one half of the game, Sonic 3 alone is the better one.

Reminder that "Sonic & Knuckles" and "Sonic 3" both having 8 votes just means "Sonic 3 & Knuckles" actually has 16.

Altered Beast is weird: it's not a good game - levels 3 and 4 are REALLY awkward - but it's a badass looking game with its huge character and HOOOOARGH IM A WOLF and the music changes to let you know that yes shit is going down
