Now there’s an official place to play hacked Sega Genesis games

Post by Admin - AutisAwsome on Mon May 02, 2016 2:01 pm



http://www.avclub.com/article/now-theres-official-place-play-hacked-sega-genesis-236026

below are some excerts from the news page above

a few days ago, Sega completely revamped the Classics Collection. Now when you want to play Ristar, you can do so from a virtual living room, picking the game from your shelf of Genesis classics and plopping it into your digital console before it flickers to life on a fake TV. It’s a novel wrapper, for sure, but it’s nothing revolutionary.

The real news here is that Sega also added Steam Workshop support for every game included in the collection. That means users from around the world can upload files that modify these decades-old games to a single, easy-to-access place, and anyone who wants to download and play one can do so with just a few clicks. There are already more than 150 items in the Workshop, and as to be expected, it’s a mix of cheat modes, wacky hacks, and plenty of dubious ephemera from the golden age of unlicensed video games

But a quick glance through the available mods reveals an even weirder side. There are several unreleased prototypes of major games, like the earliest known version of Sonic The Hedgehog 2, which also happens to be the one contestants played on Nick Arcade. And then there are the unlicensed games. These are games that never went through Sega’s vetting process and were usually released in Asia and Europe. The most notorious of them steal elements from popular games, like Somari The Adventurer, which was originally an NES game that shoved Mario into Sonic The Hedgehog.


below are examples of what games are available as shown in the article as well







Oooooh! Shocked Very Happy :bounce: cheers

I am so happy about this! Now I can play these games easily and non-illegally and they will actually run on my pc without having to mess with funny files and such! Smile this is AMAZING news for me! What about you guys? Are you excited to play some of these games? let me know! Razz

that's because it was difficult to make games back then so they were only made by first party businesses
