Hello friends. Look at your right:
I've had this modded Nomad for a while with x-treme modded battery pack to carry an honest to goodness 3000+mAh cellphone battery for many hours of portable Nomad gaming. On that Everdrive MD flash cart I have every Genesis game ever made. I never owned a Genesis growing up, though I did have a GameGear but not too many games for it - I did love Ristar, and both my mom and I had a ton of fun with Columns.
The purpose of this thread is to seek advice of games to play on the toilet. I usually make one trip to the toilet per night, and multiple times on the weekends. For many years I have been playing my DS, or 3DS, or reading comics, or reading newspapers or magazines. I love reading so sometimes I have even found myself at my friends' or family places with no phone, or no materials, and I'll go under their sinks and read the labels on cleaning products or shampoo bottles. I sometimes have fantasies about being in the movie True Lies. However, now I want to play Genesis games on the toilet using this portable gaming system. I would appreciate any and all recommendations for fun, cool Genesis games. I think the only games I've played on any Genesis, anywhere, have been Sonics 1, 2 & 3, and...? I really have not played any Genesis games, which is pretty shameful.
I'll come back to review games as you recommend and post them. These don't have to be games I can finish in 5-20 minutes, as I can take the Nomad with me out of the bathroom if the gameplay is compelling. However, my Nomad does not have flash saving, so I might not be able to complete many if any of your recommendations. It does allow cart saving, so any RPGs or other games that had actual saving on the original carts, I can do. I like any style of game but I've probably played a huge amount, if not nearly all games that were cross-platformed on the SNES. You can still recommend them if they're different on the Genesis, I won't mind.
The only game I've played so far is Contra: Hard Corps. I picked this one because I remember watching a stream of Matt and Dee playing it and I think it had good music. This one was pretty fun though sometimes I get confused with the Genesis controller system (the Nomad has 6 buttons). Did it come with a three button controller first (or five button), and then move to 6 face buttons? Anyway, this one had good music, but I found it pretty hard. I barely beat the first boss (walking spider thing) however I very much enjoyed killing the long legged eel beast. I didn't understand the different characters. When things blow up, the sprites are gigantic and you can't see shit. I felt confused, and excited the entire time. I made it to the second level and then had to leave the toilet, and later, my apartment so I couldn't continue. However, I will be playing this one again.
Thank you in advance for your recommendations, I look forward to playing some fun, cool, classic (non-Sonic) games on this portable gaming machine.
