Hey but without the soundtrack redo for Sonic CD we wouldn't have 'Sonic Boom'! Really great list though, Makes me want to go over to my friends house and hog the controllers all over again.

I'm going to read this article now. But if I don't see Lunar on here, you will fail ;)

Bartlebycs Apr 11th, 2011 09:04 PM

Guess you won this round. Nice:)

When I was a kid, I would get so pumped up by the "Sonic Boom" song. I was probably punching the air every time I'd play sonic cd. A couple games that I like that weren't on your list where:

Vay (really good rpg, I liked it better than lunar)
Sewer Shark (I hated this game, but liked it too, just because I'd show off to my friends that I actually beat it and got good enough at it to beat it in front of them)(not sexual)
Mortal Kombat (probably the difinitive version of the game)

I liked Popful Mail a good deal. Has anyone else played a Sega CD vampire game called "Silver Lode"? The internet seems to not recognize its existence.
Sonic Boom is a great song. I have it on my iPod as we speak.

Pentegarn Apr 12th, 2011 08:57 AM

Vay is definitely a noticeable omission

I did not see Shining Force 3 anywhere on that list either (other than as a footnote in Dark Wizard's entry) But it was a pretty good game itself. I liked the two main character's with two different stories coming together halfway through the game and combining forces.

Now that I look back on it though it seems that Working Designs managed to get a pretty respectable amount of success out of the Sega CD while so many other companies had no idea what to do with the same system

Dude. Ground Zero was so bad it was good. I loved how horrible that game was. :lol

Dimnos Apr 12th, 2011 11:26 AM

Although Dark Wizard kind of makes me want to install an emulator and play that.

MarioRPG Apr 12th, 2011 01:33 PM

No shout out to Penn And Teller's unreleased game? Anyway, I remember when I got my SegaCD. The guy at the flea market couldnt get it to read his scratched disc when i asked for a demo, I got mine free. Also, the fact it reads burned CDs is awesome. Thanks for the list, I'll have to check a few of these out.

SCREW Y'ALL; Android Assault, bitches

Shadowdancer21b Apr 12th, 2011 02:06 PM

Woops. It's Silverload and it's Playstation. Would explain my difficulty.

Mockery Apr 12th, 2011 04:27 PM

Good ol' Night Trap... such a cheesy FMV game.



SCAT SYSTEM DISCONNECT!

I would've said the Secret of Monkey Island should be on this list (since it's one of my all-time favorite games, but the Sega CD port of it was sadly pretty weak and the colors were reduced dramatically).

Dr. Boogie Apr 12th, 2011 11:04 PM

Vay I left off because I haven't personally played that one, though I've heard nothing but good things about it. Working Designs pretty much made the Sega CD, but they never really got the respect they deserved from Sega.

And yeah, I left Monkey Island off the list because it was a pretty mediocre port. Reduced everything with nothing really added to the game.


Also, honorable mentions to both Android Assault and Lords of Thunder, especially LoT for the awesome soundtrack.

Oh, I forgot one! Willy Beamish was awesome too. I know it was on pc also, but I enjoyed it on sega cd because it had voice.

Seven Force Apr 13th, 2011 02:01 PM

You Can Do Anything > Sonic Boom >:

PreApocalyptica Apr 13th, 2011 06:43 PM

It's funny, after reading this I turned on the TV and Game Over was on. I had no idea what it was at first and I said to myself, "Shit, this is like watching a Sega CD game!" Turns out, I was! Five of them, to be exact. What a terrible idea for a movie, spawned from a terrible idea for a game. Thank you, 90s.

Colicub Apr 13th, 2011 10:47 PM

I'm surprised no-one else has mentioned Robo Aleste or Wonderdog. Fatal Fury Special was pretty awesome too. And in terms of the Digital Pictures games, surely Double Switch (starring Corey Haim and Debbie Harry!) is the best of the bunch? Or the hilariously awful Dracula Unleashed.

Julio Apr 14th, 2011 12:47 AM

A console I certainly never touched. It wasn't all that popular in Mexico, as the SNES was a household name.

Danny 4 Eyes Apr 14th, 2011 05:09 PM

I had the set up of original Mega Drive and the Mega CD II. The games I consistently played were NHL '95, Final Fight CD and Road Avenger, man I couldn't get enough of Road Avenger, God only knows why. Maybe because it was a game, I could actually finish.

The_Punk_Hippie Apr 15th, 2011 01:31 AM

Didn't Phantasmagoria have a Sega CD port? That was an awesome game :D

Nick Apr 15th, 2011 08:49 AM

Awesome list of games here.

Phantasmagoria was eventually ported to the Sega Saturn actually, and yeah, that game is a classic with all the crazy kills. You can check out my article about the best Phatasmagoria kills to see videos of 'em all.

Did anyone else play Corpse Killer? My 11 year old self thought it was the pinnacle of gaming. Zombies and a hot busty blond? GAMING BLISS. Then I played it. I cried.
