If you were keeping count, there will be 42 games on the Sega Genesis Mini. So what do I think about this list? There are some games on this list I've never heard of before and played. I'm so glad to see four of the games on this list: Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Altered Beast, Contra Hard Corps, and Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master. Speaking of Contra Hard Corps, it's my second favorite Contra game of all time. I completed Super Contra back in October 2017, so I'm excited that Contra Hard Corps will be on the Sega Genesis Mini. As far as Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master, I'm looking forward to playing it again. I love the levels and music on this game. For some reason, there's no sports games on this list. As a cosplayer who loves watching sports on TV and playing sports games, there should've been at least one or two added on the console, such as NBA Jam and Tecmo Super Bowl. Other than that, I can't wait to get my hands on the Sega Genesis Mini. I'm also surprised that any of the Mortal Kombat games were excluded from the list. My favorite game from that franchise to this day is Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. It would've been awesome if they had it on the Sega Genesis Mini.
