Mega Drive:

-Phantasy Star 2 (final fantasy rival, just better storyline, less romantic idiotic crap etc..)
-Phantasy Star 3
-Phantasy Star 4
-Wonderboy 5
-Wonderboy 6 (Monster World 4)
-All the Sonic Games
-Moonwalker

But as I said best titles are Master System only like Wonderboy: The Dragon's Trap, Phantasy Star 1 and Ultima 4

I won´t mention the obvious ones, or amiga conversions

Mega-Drive:

Gunstar Heroes
Alien Soldier
Dynamitte Headdy
M.U.S.H.A. (or Aleste , the same game)
Yuyu Hakusho (One of the best fighting games ever)
Moonwalker (Very cool game indeed, Burseg)
Quackshot
Contra Hard Corps
Kid Chameleon
Road Rash
Shining Force
Sunset Riders

Snes:

Out to Lunch
Cybernator
Super Punch-Out
Chrono Trigger (Not Chrono Cross, that's the Playstation sequel, Ian)
Parodius 2
Yoshi's Island
erm.......

PC-Engine:

Soldier Blade
Super Star Soldier
Wonderboy in Monster Land
R-Type

There are more I can't remember now... the PCE has an absurd amount of shmups, so if you like the genre, you will certainly do fine with a PCE .

My bad, they are exactly the same though at the beginning. You sure it's a sequel and not just a remake?

Did they release chrono trigger for PSX too? Maybe I have that, it's been too long since I DLed it.

I voted the SNES
I was never really that impressed by anything on the Megadrive apart from Sonic. I thought all th games seemed to have a very similar feel.
On the SNES though I realy enjoyed:

Zelda
Mario World
FZero
Secret of Mana
Killer Instinct
Mario Kart
Street Fighter 2
Super Probotector (I think it was called)

ALL YOUR BASE.......

I think Quackshot is the best game based on a disney character... athoulgh Master System version of Castle of Illusion is top notch too.

I am nearly sure Chrono Trigger got a PSX remake when Chrono Cross was released...

BTW, the game you call Unirally, Ian, it's probably Uniracers. And Final Fantasy sux, just doesnt sux as much as Breath of Fire.

I personally prefer the mega-drive version of street fighter 2 and Super Street Fighter 2 .

F-Zero is cool. Super Probotector is Contra 3 ?

Chrono Trigger got a port to the PSX in the form of a Square Chronology, which included a port of FF2-US.

PCE:
Ys book 1&2
Exile (very short but sweet)
Gate of Thunder
Lords of Thunder

The best PCE games were on CDRom.

Let's remember the PC Engine is an 8bit console with a 16bit VDP

That makes it even more impressive, because it kicks the living shit ut of the md and snes.

You know where my vote went to. I just *love* me turboexpress

I never owned any Bitmap Bros games for these machines as I always thought the Amiga versions were the best.
