The Sega Genesis in 1990 | Classic Gaming Quarterly



Episode 59 – The Sega Genesis in 1990. We pick up where “The Sega Genesis in 1989” and launch episodes left off. 46 games came out for the Genesis in 1990; some great, many good, and a few stinkers. Standout titles include Truxton, Golden Axe, Phantasy Star II, Thunder Force III, and Castle of Illusion. Obviously with this many games to cover they can’t all get equal screen time, so I tried to give more attention to the games that deserved it.

Show notes:

– Obviously everyone is going to have their own preferences as far as the 1990 lineup goes. I tried to focus on games that are exceptionally good or that have a compelling story in order to keep the flow of the video going. That means that some people will be displeased when a personal favorite game of theirs got limited screen time. Unfortunately, it is not possible to please everyone, so I focussed on the storytelling.

– The excellent website SegaRetro.org was an invaluable resource when researching this episode.

– As was shown in an on-screen credit, the footage of both the Phantasy Star II pocket guide and the Sega Arcade Power Stick were provided by Coury over at My Life in Gaming, as I do not own either of those items. As always, his collaborative spirit is much-appreciated.

– As usual, all arcade footage for this episode was recorded using MAME. The arcade overlays used in this episode were created by “Orions Angel” –

– The Die Hard Arcade footage was recorded using Mednafen, and is actually the Sega Saturn port of the game.

– The Mega SG console was released while I was producing this video. Some of the footage was recorded using a model 1 Genesis, while other footage was recorded using the Mega SG. I can’t tell which is which, which is a good thing.

– At about 25:44, during the “Genesis Does” commercial, I’m about 95% sure that’s “Malibu” from American Gladiators as the warrior with the broad sword.

– My wife served as player #2 for the Golden Axe vs. footage and the Forgotten Worlds footage. Thanks, Mrs. CGQ!

– The script for this episode was 8,834 words long. I don’t know if that’s long, but it seems like it. That’s a lot of writing!

– I got not one, but TWO Die Hard references in this video.

  • the EGM review crew really panned Herzog Zwei at the time…..shows that even "professionals" can go full r-tard 😉

  • Late to the retro party, but loving these vids and the read throughs. We’re the same age so I remember a lot of this also.

  • Phantasy Star Series – Waste of money…at least for me. I have tried them before, and they just define boring for me.

  • These types of videos are my absolute favorite videos to watch on youtube. This was masterfully executed in a very professional manor. I loved the little bits of humor here and there when you can't help but let your own feelings out for the subject. I loved Herzog Zwei and never knew it was a sequel. Will definitely be looking forward to more of your content. Thanks for making this.

  • what a good video! thanks for mentioning portuguese translated Phantasy Star. Not only one of the very best titles on Master System, but certainly one of the best RPGs I've ever played. Thanks to Tec Toy we had access to this game, because very few brazilians could speak english late 80s.

    A local rental store very gladly gave me Phantasy Star for my Tom & Jerry for obvious reasons. Will never forget that day.

  • I meant no disrespect from the last comment, I do thoroughly enjoy your content and you have a great voice man!!

  • “Thunderforce III is ridiculously difficult.” It’s one of the only shooters I can beat from start to finish without continues and I’m not the best @ shmups…

  • Alex kidd in miracle world released in 1987? Sure? Have you ever checked the title screen, bro? (don't mind me, it's my all time fav game)

  • It's taken me far far too long to get back around to watching these. I love these yearly instalments of retrospectives of the consoles after the launch and hope it continues into 1991 for the Mega Drive/Genesis especially. I was a little on the young side to fully appreciate the console market and innovations at the time and these always put me right there in the moment of what it must have been like to experience the console and the new releases.

  • Beginning of Strider says "C.C.P." with Cyrillic characters at 51.18. Isn't that Chinese Communist Party (China)? I know C.C.C.P (Soviet Union). I think Capcom made a mistake.

  • a fascinating video, but even as a big fan of this channel the notion that Truxton is anything even close to "average" makes me question your sanity.

  • "ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US."

    Love it. Thanks for the awesome videos. The nostalgia is hitting hard.
