On October 29, 1988, the Sega Mega Drive hit Japan and ushered in a new era of video games.
New, original battle systems and daring stories.
My favorite Sega Genesis game was always the original John Madden Football though.
Bonus questions: What are some of your fondest memories growing up with videogames? It'll always have a fond place in my heart, but Ecco the Dolphin was an evil evil game that was far too terrifying for my 5 year old brain.
