The Genesis was Sega’s stab into the 16 bit world. At the time, the Sega was a great system with only the PC Engine to compete with. The Genesis (while becoming out-dated) is still in use today because of many classic games like Vector Man 2, the Phantasy Star series, and the Sonic games. The Genesis tried to stay on top of the video game world (which up until now was ruled by Nintendo) by making the 32x and the Sega CD. Even so, the Genesis couldn’t compete with the Super Nintendo. The last days of the Genesis had to come, but at least you can play all the ROMs you like on the Genesis emulators.
