SNES > Genesis for a number of reasons.

Graphics were alot better on SNES..just look at SNES version of Street Fighter 2 vs the Genesis version.

Sound on SNES was a million times better than Genesis.

Games were more innovative on SNES, no they were not bloody...but I'm sorry blood does not make a good game.

SNES had Dracula X, Killer Instinct, Zelda III, Castlevania IV, Super Mario World, Super Mario RPG, Squaresoft games..all of which were awesome, Super Street Fighter 2, Star Fox, Super Punchout, numerous Neo-Geo ports that were superior to the Genesis ports, Super Metroid, Final Fight.....the list goes on and on seemingly forever.

The genesis had Sonic, Gunstar Heroes, Castlevania Bloodlines, and bloody MK....thats about all that springs to mind for me. And I also should mention that even though MK had blood on Genesis its graphics were fairly ugly and small compared to the SNES. Also..MK was an aweful game anyways  :lol

Once the MK games got somewhat decent with MK2 the blood was on the SNES games..so thats not really an issue.

im not basing it on blood in games, im just saying that that was cool considering most of the games were uncensored ( AVP and MK)

I still think the genesis is better  ::)

Well you are entitled to your opinion, but IMO SNES>>>>Genesis. I own both and enjoy the SNES more even to this day.

Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past is still the best 2D Zelda. It originated on the SNES.

Yoshi's Island is my favorite platformer ever. It originated on the SNES.

Super Metroid is considered by many to be one of the best in the series, and it originated on the SNES.

Besides those three, there's also great SNES games such as:
Super Mario Kart
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
Donkey Kong Country
DKC 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
DKC 3
Star Fox
F-Zero
Mario Paint
Super Mario All-Stars
Final Fantasy III (US)
Super Mario World
Mana series

The megadrive destroys the snes because

a) It has better action games ie Gunstar Heroes and Probotector. Not even the snes contra efforts come close to these.

b) It has better shooters without a doubt. Thunderforce2-4, just to name 3 (I could name 30)

c) It has better fighters. Streets of Rage 2 is the best scrolling fighter there is. Final fight...poor mans choice. (check out Gourmet Sentai bara Yarou instead:)).As for sf2 ackula buddy..graphics don't make a game, sorry. Sure te md version isn't so good graphically..but playability wise its a lot better.

d) RPGs...Shining Force anyone??

e) Who was making the best arcade games at the time...um...sega!!! Which machine got all the ports of these great arcade games....the megadrive!

The only area the snes rules the md would perhaps be in the japanese scene, without a doubt tbh. The sheer array of novel, exciting and enjoyable games that are so typically japanese is staggering and its always a pleasure to stumble across a hidden gem.

But gaming, like most things, is about quality not quantity. Give me an md and 30 games over a full 1000+ sfc set up any day!

As much as I love the Mega drive, saying that it has better games than the SF (Super Famciom) is unreasonable. The SF got over 70% of the market share then. Saying that the Megadrive is better is as good as saying SEGA developed and Published games (with few exceptions) are far superior than every other developer and publisher work put together at that time.

The fact that Nintendo alone put up a strong enough fight, even many prefer their line up over SEGA, is enough to invalidate this thread statement.
----------------------------------------
Gen 1. Magnavox Odyssey (For being the only one. the rest had games but were bulid-in)
Gen 2. Atari 2600 (approximately 500 games, that's as much as all games made for all console in that gen put togther, not to mention many were multi-platform)
Gen 3. Famicom (Enjoyed over 70% of the market share. Unless you prefer Atari or SEGA published games over all other publisher combined in that era.)
Gen 4. Super Famicom (Same ^^ as Famicom)
Gen 5. PlayStation ( And by far. PSX enjoyed 80% of the market share. Despite how much I loved the N64 and Saturn, PSX Approx 5,000 Vs 1,500 (including multi-platform titles) was an easy win)
Gen 6. PlayStation 2 (same as PSX)
Gen 7. Impossible to say
-360: Must multi-platform titles (Including PC and Console) and Best downloadable titles (Xbox Live).
-PS3: Best Exclusive titles.
-Wii: Best in Quantity and Ports.

No it's reasonable. Not saying superior. It's your opinion and I have mine.

Thus, Genesis > SNES in terms of Quality over Quantity. Hundreds of games ignored due to the overbearing and over hyped SNES that brainwashed an entire nation of children and teens. Nintendo already had a strong hold on the market and we blindly went with it. Just like Sony did with the PS2, which killed the Sega Dreamcast.

So, this is enough to invalidate your statement/opinion in this thread.

I am sorry. I respect your opinion and the MD does in fact have over hundred of great games (I can even name them one by one :D).

However saying the MD > SF is like saying SEGA published and developed games > every other publisher and developer work in that era which is unreasonable thing to say.

Japanese developers tend to pick one system and stick with it, while western developers tend to make their games on multiple platforms at lest that how it was then so there were always a system that gonna get must of the games while the other systems be limited with first party titles with few exceptions. So there was always a clear winner in term of quality and quantity.

Much like those kids and teen you mentioned ignored the less popular system despite the many "Gems" these systems has, you are ignoring the "Gems" available on those more popular systems. Because both the Super Famicom and the PlayStation 2 got their own share of "Gems" and let me tell it is a huge one!

Note: Please do not get this comment the wrong way I just wanted to illustrate and express my impression I do not mean to accuse.  :)

I just have to stick my big foot in here.  :lol
I love the SNES and love many of its games, but............ I would also have to go with the Genesis being the better, not technically superior, when it came to a better gaming experience. I just feel that the genny has tons more classic games than the SNES. Those games still stand the test of time, IMHO. And I still play both systems.
There is no spoon.
