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.

Bartlebycs Apr 11th, 2011 07:55 PM

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

Bartlebycs Apr 11th, 2011 08:04 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 07:57 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

Dimnos Apr 12th, 2011 10:25 AM

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

Dimnos Apr 12th, 2011 10:26 AM

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

MarioRPG Apr 12th, 2011 12:33 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.

Grislygus Apr 12th, 2011 12:38 PM

SCREW Y'ALL; Android Assault, bitches

Shadowdancer21b Apr 12th, 2011 01:06 PM

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

Mockery Apr 12th, 2011 03:27 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 10:04 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 01:01 PM

You Can Do Anything > Sonic Boom >:

PreApocalyptica Apr 13th, 2011 05:43 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 09:47 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 13th, 2011 11:47 PM

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 04:09 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 12:31 AM

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

Nick Apr 15th, 2011 07:49 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.

WhiteRat Apr 15th, 2011 07:42 PM

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.


Grislygus Apr 15th, 2011 08:05 PM

When are you doing phantasmagoria II?

and why the hell aren't you doing a series of all the horror adventure games through the years? I'd write that shit up in a heartbeat

Gix Apr 16th, 2011 02:26 AM

o'h man does this bring me back, loved lunar and loved working designs, but you forgot,"Vay" which i guess u can find on the ipad now..really want to re-buy all my sega cd shit now :P

k0k0 Apr 16th, 2011 03:31 PM

If you ever do a horror adventure game series, don't forget to include "I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream". The game freaked me out when I was younger.

bountyhunterseven Apr 17th, 2011 02:20 AM

i guess im the only one who REALLY liked the batman game....damn..

Grislygus Apr 17th, 2011 02:41 AM

Oh yeah, Harlan Ellison is the shit. So was Dark Eye... and this one game I can never remember the name of, involving a creepy town that turned out to be a simulation to test and see if you could CREATE a serial killer, the test subject being you.

toolz88 Apr 17th, 2011 09:52 AM

I didn't think anybody else would know about Earthworm Jim on the Sega CD.

k0k0 Apr 17th, 2011 04:48 PM

That game with the creepy town turned simulation was called Harvester, and it was pretty awful, but really great at the same time.

And Earthworm Jim on the Sega CD was the difinitive version of it. I could only beat it on easy mode to get the earthworm lecture when I was a kid though.

StalinBaby Apr 18th, 2011 03:46 AM

I guess you didn't get the game Panic!, because it may be one of the strangest games ever released in America on a major system. It doesn't feature much in the way of gameplay, but it is intensely Japanese and certainly something you won't forget. Go give it a try if you haven't played it yet.

Drew Bludd Apr 19th, 2011 02:23 AM

No WWF Rage In The Cage?



Look at that roster!
Yokozuna.
Big Bossman
The Headshrinkers!

Pandajuice Apr 20th, 2011 03:39 PM

Sonic CD definitely belongs on this list for the title song alone. "Sonic Boom" and the accompanying cartoon intro was so badass back in the day. Another game I loved that no one else seemed to was Mad Dog McCree.

Wyldflame Apr 22nd, 2011 02:58 PM

Really, no Shining Force?

monster_movie_night Apr 24th, 2011 03:45 AM

ugh I played sewer shark.If you was good at that game like koko it mean you suck balls.

SLjimbolian May 25th, 2011 07:12 PM

Oh how I would love for Sega to at least release a Sega CD Collection for 360/PS3 like they did for Genesis.
