    Genesis / Megadrive. The SNES / SFC may have Super Robot Wars, but I've stuck with my Genesis ever since I got the Sonic the Hedgehog pack (rectangular first unit; came with Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic 2), and it has Streets of Rage 2, so... :p

    I liked them both, but if I had to pick, I would say SNES. My whole reason for getting a SNES was Street Fighter 2. I am a big fan of the Super Mario Series, but when I heard that Street Fighter 2 was coming out for it, I was sold.

    I like both of them. :) But I'd have to pick SNES because it has more of the games I like. :)
    Having Chrono Tirgger and the Final Fantasy games on one side and Phantasy Star on the other makes it a difficult decision. :confused:

    I used to have a Megadrive, but I always thought I should've bought a SNES. So SNES it is. Chrono Trigger 0wnz j00!

    I'm surprised no one said "they both have their good and bad points", but I'm not going to. :)

    I prefer the Genesis over the SNES because of the quality of the EA Sports games. :D

    But SNES does have all those cool games.

    SNES, because of all those uber-1337 RPGs such as FF, CT, Lufia, SO, and ToP...

    But Phantasy Star was uber fun too, and Sonic series still is oodles of fun. :D
