Mega Drive emulation is notorious for failing to reproduce the audio accurately, which has largely contributed to the AIDS-tier bang-wrong moronpinion that the Mega Drive has a bad "sound chip" or bad music.

It's also due to people failing to appreciate the myriad intricacies of FM synthesis. It requires a significant increase of programming talent to get pleasing results from an FM synth. But they can be amazingly expressive and intricate.

Comparatively, beep chips are much simpler to programme, and any cunt can string samples together in a tracker and get them to play in order. (I should know.)

Maybe you should try this, a rebuilt mega drive with modem chips that can scale up to HD with no loss of performance.

It accepts original carts and you can't put ROMs on it. Perfect!

It doesn't accept more modern controllers though so as well as the games you'll need an original (not included).

It will take ROMs through an Everdrive flash cart and there will be custom firmware soon enough that allows loading ROMs through the in-built SD card slot.

There's also a 2.4GHz version of the 8bitdo controller that's compatible with it (and the original hardware).

This absolute sub human scum is right on this front : mega drive sounds are the best sounds

Even in the actual hardware there's a good Mega Drive sound chip that sounds like your balls or clitoris are vital fuckitems, and one that sounds like you've been neutered (depending on the console model)

Enthusiasts sometimes get the old chip modded into the new console. My friend who made Sonic 3 Complete did this.

SNES EWJ is not a good version. Game feel is wrong and it is missing two levels

I have a real one and added a PAL/NTSC switch to it so that Sonic wasn't like treacle.  Then did nothing with it

I did this as well. I think the only game I own that can detect it and tell you to piss off is Jimmy White's Snooker, but even then you can just flip it after it's started.

Literally the only game I regret buying on the Switch is that Mega-drive collection with 20-30 games on it.

Maybe one and a half of them are better than dogshit. And that's the fucking sonic games.

The best games

Alright then.

Which is better:  Disney’s Aladdin on the original SNES or Disney’s Aladdin on the Megadrive Emulator.

SNES, Disney's Aladdin for Mega Drive is an extremely overrated, frustrating game

I'm sorry, guys. I played about 50% of the games for about two minutes each and they've been conclusively analysed.

SHINING FORCE II IS NOT DOG SHIT

YOU ARE DOG SHIT

I will play it for two minutes tonight, and do a thorough analysis.

For now, I think it's safer to store with the bags of Confirmed Dogshit.

Two minutes? All true gamers put the cheat code in that lets you name every party member at the start of the game and spend at least half an hour doing that.

The Mega Drive was a bit bollocks. The Sonics are timeless achievements but there's not much beyond them worth spending time on, especially compared to the treasure trove that is the SNES library.

Now the Sega Saturn on the other hand, mmm.

DEBATE TIME.

Which iteration of Mega-Drive hardware looks best? Of course, the correct answer is the Japanese Mk1 Mega-Drive:



DEBATE OVER, THANKS.

ALSO, LOOK AT THIS FUCKING GREAT LOGO TOO, THANKS:

I do find the "just use an emulator" responses a bit weird, because... I have used an emulator, for about a decade and a half. And now they've made a tiny Mega Drive with the proper pads that I can hack my favourites onto. And I can set it besides the SNES Mini, PS1 Mini, and it's just a convenient and aesthetically pleasing way to play classic games.
