    You can get something very similar to this without the HDMI with six button controllers that comes loaded with games and plays actual Sega Genesis games for thirty bucks at Family Dollar

                                BRUH... 80 duckets for this is nowheres nears a steep price point by any stretch of the imagination. Just 5 of these games are better gaming goodness than most of the cliche drivel that drops on current gen systems at 60 duckets plus! ALSO... the Sega Genesis was NEVER an underrated or underdog console. This is why millennials shouldn't be reviewing retro. You guys make unfounded statements based mostly on biased or just flat-out uninformed opinions. DO DILIGENT RESEARCH. Those of us O.G. players over 40 who LIVED this stuff know how things were, what the truth of the era is. PANSY

                                  @Rick Hoes that sounds great! We were definititley masters, i could do a speed run w gameboy terminator 2 etc. thanks for sharing, , lets just embrace this, were into the collecting age maybe

                                  @pacoyhamch Ha, how bout that! My lineup of genesis games in my early collection was Golden Axe, Thunder Force II and Altered beast which everyone had. I was a master at each of those because It was what I had available to play whenever I fired up my Genesis. One friend of mine had Super Thunderblade, Ghouls n Ghosts and Last Battle. Likewise he was better at playing those than I. Another friend of mine had Space Harrier II, Revenge of Shinobi and Madden Football. Between all of us, we were each able to play the majority of the launch titles and some of the best of the new releases. Later additions to my personal library was Thunderforce III, Whip Rush, Wings of Wor, Phelios and Shadow Dancer. GOOD TIMES.

                                  @Rick Hoes now that you mentioned it, yup trading worked really well, we all wanted to play more games, today we have too many games. And during that time, we were considered geeks for playing video games, now almost everybody plays video games, stupid masses

                                  @pacoyhamch for sure! Folks around my way had on average no more than 6 - 10 games tops for either their Sega Genesis or Super Nintendo. If you didn't share and trade, you just missed out on most of the best games of the era. I remember thinking back then at 30 - 50 duckets a game (70 for games with extra memory like Strider), my goal was to have an "extensive" library at 25 total games. Now with the mini, today you get Strider plus 41 other titles for just 80 duckets. That's a real value for sure. Especially when considering you could be wasting 100 duckets on the "special uber day one edition" of the 15th Call of Duty trash.

                                  Yeah i agree games were so expensive back then especially when you are just a kid, i owned a snes and my best friend owned a genesis, we shared the hell out of it, good times

                                80 bucks is a fair price considering the detail put into the system in addition it comes with 2 controllers and a strong line up. A lot of reviewers love the system but they never fail to mention the 80 dollar price tag which shouldn't be a reason to buy this morsel of reteo goodness.

                                  I've been using the updated AtGames Megadrive loaded with 200 games on the SD. I can't understand why people complained about it so much, it's perfect.

                                      I got my console today and it’s honestly what you’d expect, Sega Genesis in a small light package.

                                        Pretty sure there’s two versions one with six button wireless controllers and both support old carts

                                            Why do they never just re release the original model of Sega Genesis, Super NES and PlayStation?? Always a smaller cheap looking watered down version that isn't as good

                                              Sega Genesis mini actually has 45 games since Mega Man The Wily Wars is basically Mega Man 1, 2, 3, & Wily Towers.

                                                  I played with the three button controllers growing up. Not a problem for me.

                                                                                        Here is my take, the build quality is great, the emulation is good, controllers are decent to good (depending if you played the original) 42 games to include 2 exclusives is worth probably a few hundreds if not more, interface is decent, save feature included, ability to play different versions with different covers including Asia and European releases is well thought out to give it an extra universal marketing edge. Whoever is complaining stick to your cartridges, nothing wrong with that. The U. S market is extremely diverse and I believe Sega genuinely took the time to keep everyone happy. Remember Sega has not built official hardware in a long while and looking at the attention to detail on this really hope they keep going. If you can afford it, I think it's worth that $80, if you can't that's O.k too.
