100 Underrated/Less Known/Hidden Gem Sega Mega Drive/Genesis Games!

*NOTE* The intro song is a sample from a Beastie Boys sample of an old Spanish song called El Rey Y Yo. You can find the sample here:

Here we go with 100 more MD/G games, this time of the underrated/less known/hidden gem variety!

Calling these “hidden gems” may be a little misleading; in my experience, I’ve found that MG/D fans are a hardcore and passionate bunch and are very familiar with most of the library. If you are one of these MG/D fans, there’s probably nothing here you haven’t seen before.

If, however, you are new to the MD/G or only have a cursory knowledge of the platform’s more popular titles, then you’re in for a treat. There are some real gems here – certainly ones I had never heard of and some of them are truly amazing. True, most of them tend to be more of the arcade/action type (I don’t think there are any JRPG-style games on this list), but sometimes that’s all you need.

Please note that I explicitly omitted any titles that were on the recently released “MD/G Mini Console”. So titles like Alisia Dragoon, Beyond Oasis and Kid Chameleon – which are widely regarded as hidden gems – are not here. I did that because many of you who are watching this video probably own the MD/G Mini, and don’t need to see those titles again.

As a personal note – as someone who did not have a lot of MD/G experience before making this video – this was one of the more enjoyable videos I’ve assembled for this channel. I was simply blown away by some of these games. I hope you enjoy watching as much as I did making this!

And to celebrate this video, here is a steam key for a game! 2LCLE-8H9IK-BZTIJ – if you claim it, please comment below and let us know what it was!

  • NOTE: The song used in the title sequence is an old Spanish song called "El Rey Y Yo" – but then sampled by The Beastie Boys for their song "Hello Nasty". Read the description for a link to the sample.

  • I desperate to find an adventure multiplayer platformer game with 4 playable character in it. I only remember two character, one of them can shoot fireball from his and the other one shoot wind. Btw sorry for my bad english ; )

    Ps: I thing the character name is Kuratau,kidabaw & ayame if I not wrong

  • Decap attack, Flicky and Yu-Yu Hakusho definitively shouldn't be on that list.

  • Is Flicky underrated? Haha… No way. It's famous and addicting by the way.

  • 39. Generations Lost, I used to play this a lot as a kid and I couldn't remember the name so I can try to play it again today, you're my hero of the week!

  • is Zool well known or you just missed out on a friggin' AMAZING game?
    Everyone please check it out. It's actually the first game i owned for the genesis.
    Good call adding bubba n stix, it's a surprisingly fun game with cool puzzles and a killer soundtrack. Garfield is not well known? awesome game too
    What about boogerman? is that well known? it's a total classic. cool spot? dynamite heddy?

  • very nice!, i've played some of those games before but forgot their names haha
    now i know them again, thanks pal 😀

  • Travellers tales had some really good graphics for games between 93 to 96. There so colorful and animated

  • So I been trying to find this game for a long time but with no luck. I only remember that the game was 2d, you came from a little hole, looked like a vacuum cleaner a lil bit. You had to collect points, round things and watch out for the enemies.

  • This was an enjoyable trip down memory lane. But there are quite a few on here, that are far from 'hidden' or underrated. 'Gaiares' and 'Gleylancer' for example. Any self respecting side scrolling shoot-em-up fan with a mega drive knows about these, the console shined in this genre and they are some of the most sought after titles now. James Pond 3 was a massive hit. I got bought this on release, and it was never underrated either, high scoring reviews all round, the best of the series.
    Granted, their are a few maybe considered underrated on here , but I'd put that down to personal preference. The more I watched this video, the more I see it filled with absolute 'classics', sometimes I thought maybe you've only played Sonic & Streets of Rage, to deem this list worthy of it's title description.

  • Gynoug is GREAT side scrolling shooter I never hear anyone hardly mention. It was also called Wings of Wor here in the States.

  • I've been losing my mind trying to find a game that got deleted with the rest of my wish list.
    Hope it's on here!

  • Listen, man. I do appreciate your video of good games. But… I seriously doubt any system can have 100 'hidden gems'… Doesnt make any sense

  • Oh man what wonderful list. Games like pulseman, Ranger X, elemental master… beautiful works. Thx for the memories.

  • It’s criminal how under appreciated Chiki Chiki Boys is!… the games was developed by Capcom and had some of the best music on the Mega-Drive. Not to mention is addictive as heck!
