15 SNES Games That Were Better On Sega Genesis



Quote
The Genesis version of Mickey Mania is better than the SNES version in just about every significant performance category.
It boasts better resolution, better animations, and, most importantly of all, doesn’t suffer from the bizarre load times that plague the SNES version of the game.
What’s really strange is that the Genesis version of this game also features new and extended levels not found in the SNES version.
I assume that there were some technical/development problems that prevented those levels from appearing in the SNES version, though I’m not sure why the Super Nintendo struggled so much with this particular game.

SEGA Mega Drive Mini 2 Trivia - Party Quiz Mega Q 2022



Quote
Party Quiz Mega Q 2022 was the idea of Miyazaki, who loved the original & declared that the last thing he wanted to do before retirement was write all the new questions.
He wrote all 3200 questions himself & M2 had to expand the ROM to fit em all, as the OG could only hold 3000 Qs
