It's 876 games overall. I assume the 713 games were the ones released in an specific territory which I suppose it's North America, the one which received the most releases.

You're not including oddities such as the French specific SECAM release of Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine are you? Never understood that release haha

One game I rarely hear mentioned is Decap Attack. It's a solid and fun side scroller, exclusive to the system. It was completely overshadowed by the hype and release of Sonic, but it is a solid Genesis exclusive title, that clearly bridges the 8-bit to 16-bit eras.

I don't know much about the new releases. I'll have to google it. I know xenocrisis and tanglewood but thats about it.

Nope. All standalone games and not different variations. You can watch them all here:



It summarizes 869 games though. I suppose the 876 games information (which actually comes from Wikipedia itself, check it out) is accounting some unlicensed games the VGL video doesn't.

You can add this for a start but there is about 30 new games over the last 10 years

Ton of new games no joke

I think just as official as any other since EA did this and others with no license from sega.. and there counting those on the old lists..

Ha! I'm surprised that game even came out Ian! It had been in limbo for quite a few years.

So I guess I'll add in the Streets of Rage series to this. (All 3 of them)
