As a kid, I grew up in the 16-bit era. From the moment I saw Sonic the Hedgehog running through Green Hill Zone all I could talk about was the Sega Genesis and how cool it was. That Christmas, my brother and I received our first brand new game system, a Genesis model one, packaged with Sonic the Hedgehog. Every other gift that year was either a game or an accessory compatible with the Genesis. Some were great, like Mickey Mouse’s Castle of Illusion, and some were duds, like Mario Paint “competitor” Art Alive.
