I had hankering today to play Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Usually a big reason for this is just for the music and today was no exception. Sonic 2 has some of my favourite game music let alone music from the Genesis (or Mega Drive everywhere outside of North America). Despite the Genesis having less clever audio processing than its mortal enemy the Super Nintendo.
Behold, a few reasons why the Genesis Mark 1 had a headphone jack.

2 thoughts on “Work That Sega Sound”
Heh. I often get a craving for those FM synth sounds. The thing is that the only company that could really make that hardware sing was Sega, so far as I can remember. Now, you should take into account that I was a Nintendo kid, so I only really played the “best” MD games (which, in my opinion, were all Sega titles). Still, I have a stack of .GYM files right next to my .SPCs for emulated listening 🙂
Those make me want to go fast.
