The Sega Genesis

To those unaware, this is the second model of the Sega Genesis released in the 90s. I owned this model instead of the original. Later I owned the model 2 of the Sega CD (which I will discuss at another time) which broadened my gaming horizons even more. This piece of hardware:

Kept me out of trouble

Fun to play

Has some legendary experiences even games today can’t replicate

Helped me bond with others at school

Helped my reading and writing

Expanded my vision in the gaming industry

Helped me boost my confidence

My though processes amplified

Helped my thought processes with other debates (Genesis vs SNES)

However, according to Fox News:

Your kids will grow up violent

Social interaction reduces to 0

Video games in general are bad just because we said so

Mortal Kombat is too violent for kids and needs to be adjusted

Today marks the original release of the Sega Genesis (Mega Drive in Europe). I’d like to take the time to thank Sega for helping me through the beginning of my adolescence until I obtained the PlayStation.
