    I'm not even sure that one would work, so let's be safe and use the genesis 3

    I never owned the six button controller as a kid, and I beat Street Fighter 2 on hard mode with just this. *End of brag*

    Playing a game on the actual console will always be better, simply for the nostalgia. It would be hard to understand for someone who didn't grow up in the 90's playing these games. But, you have to understand setting it was half the fun *That wasn't the case when I was a kid*

    I haven't played on a genesis since 1995, and a little over a decade later I'm 20 years old in college. It's around this age I long for the things of my childhood, something to cling on to when you feel like the world is rushing you into adulthood. And it's just awesome hanging around the dorm with five guys playing street fighter 2 and acting like 11 year olds again *Replace cool aid with beer*

    I'm looking at my Genesis right now, it's essentially on the ground beside my computer in my room. It looks like pitfall is in it now. Damn, i feel like playing the lion king.
