Got it after all this time and my thoughts on it

     Well today I got a genesis for around 29.99 and well I asked the game store I went to (in this case game dude hope anyone from california knows about this place) and well they said they did not have not once but twice I called on my cell then asked in person when I got there I waited a couple mintues and bam I got freaking bloodlines (after all these years yay)  ;D Not only that but I got someother games like phantasy star II, revenge of the shinobi, and valis III over all some good games a cheap console all about the price of a current gen game not to bad.

      Now bloodlines is an awesome (genesis) game out of all the games I got for the genesis it wins in the sound, controls, and graphics department . The stages are just a treat to look at (even if it is slightly gross yay for dead bodies that are in half in chains  :rollseyes: ) , Boss battles are really good I believe I fought an odd flying rock creature that spun around making me a little dizzy which a game has never done before. It's just too bad I got my butt handed to me by frankenstein so this is all what I can say. Overall I like it cannot wait to get to this games version of dracula. Also if any one has an idea or suggestion are there anymore genesis game that would be worth buying like an rpg or action game?

Bloodlines is indeed awesome. Congrats on getting it, and a proper Genesis to play it on.

If you want a good RPG game, you can't go wrong with the Shining Force series. Both 1 and 2 are worth hunting for.

Shinobi 3 is perhaps the best ninja game ever made! Seriously, get it.

Just make usre you read a FAQ on it first, so you'll understand the controls better.

Get your hands on Contra: The Hard Corps. the action is fast-paced and the difficulty will leave you with a long struggle. You can choose four different characters to play and each one has their own types of weapon system or gimmick. The game also has multiple endings including a fifth secret ending in stage 3. Though not on par with SNES sounds and Graphics, this game is solid and Konami crammed a lot into it.

I like Shining Force I better than Shining Force II. The sequel was just too cartoony for me. But I love the series. I only have Shining In The Darkness for emulator and SFI for emulator, but I have a real copy of SFII. I have the entire series for the Saturn (Shining Wisdom, Shining The Holy Ark, Shining Force III Scenario 1, Shining Force III Scenario 2, and Shining Force III Scenario 3). I have both Shining Souls for emulator. I stopped caring about the series after Shining Force III, though. It lost its charm when Sega abandoned Camelot.

Everyone already mentioned all the RPGs that came to my mind for the Genesis, but I do have some recommendations outside of RPGs. A nice game that comes to mind is a fantasy platformer called Alisia Dragoon. You can read up on it here (since it's not really that well known): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alisia_Dragoon

Also, the Sonic the Hedgehog games are a must for the Genesis.

Glad you're enjoying Bloodlines, it was my First Castlevania game and It made me interested in the series.

Make sure you check out Shinobi 3 and the Phantasy Star games too.

Thanks for the comments everyone all those games are good recommendations I know about contra(simon boss with fish) the shining force series is one I have heard of but never payed  any attention too also the fact that it was made by camelot the creators of golden sun does spark an interest in me,shinobi of course my only gripe is somehow he moves slower than a belmont now I do not know how this is possible but it is. Also I was thinking romance of the three kingdoms or nobunaga's ambition if anyone has played those how do they play? As for sonic I could never get into most of them except for the first which I have for the wii virtual console but maybe just for collection. Just out of question what kind of shooters does the genesis has does it have gradius r-type or something else  ( no cosmic carnage since it is for the 32x  ;D). Phantasy starII I do have,three is common where I got it I just cannot play number one I hear there is some kind of add on to play master system games I cannot remember if this is true. Also the rest of the valis series I want to get except for the "X" versions yeah I do not like to really talk about those much  :-X. For every system there is that shooter and yes gunstar heros is one of them. I would just like to say thanks for recommending and even jogging my memory on some also if anyhas played musha I think could you tell me how that is again thanks all of ya  ;D

ECCO!
And ECCO 2: Tides Of Time

Great soundtrack. Fun being a dolphin, but harder than Hell.

Both Jurassic Park games. Just cuz you can eat people, although I remember it being a lot easier the first time I played it. I suck at it now.

Vector Man, graphics will blow you away (for the time).

Earthworm Jim and Earthworm Jim 2, one of the wackiest games out there.

If you get a 32X for god knows whatever reason, get Shadow Squadron and Comix Zone. Shadow Squadron was the only game I had for 32X and I liked it.
