As far as I am aware there was no game released for the Mega Drive/Genesis called Beethoven. There was a game called "Beethoven's 2nd" but I think that was released on another platform.

List Missing Star Control 2[edit]

I Don't have the Star Control 2 cart with me at the moment for the pertinent information, but it exits. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:56, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

Where does it exit from? (talk) 21:39, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

It would of helped if you provided the website url to compare to. Govvy (talk) 13:23, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

Bible Adventures[edit]

Why is this game included in the list when it's an unlicensed game? All games from Wisdom Tree are unlicensed. There is no Sega logo or "seal of quality" on it's cartridge or packaging. This game and other unlicensed games that may be on the list need to be removed.JeremeK (talk) 00:11, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

What makes the difference? This is the list of games made for the Sega Genesis, and if it can be cited reliably, I don't see why it shouldn't be included. The same goes for Ishido: The Way of Stones, Star Control, Turrican, etc., all titles Accolade developed before being licensed, not to mention the Taiwanese games listed, of which quite a few of them actually have articles.

Unlicensed games are not officially for Sega, and because Sega did not put their seal of quality on it, the games cannot be promised to meet Sega standards. Any cartridge which Sega did not approve was made by third-party companies to override the system's security which will mess up your console. This is what happened to Nintendo and the reason many people had to "blow" on the game and console's contacts.JeremeK (talk) 22:18, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

If the unlicensed games are going to be included on the list, they need to be labeled as such. JeremeK (talk) 22:20, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

There's nothing on the list that tells the viewer that an unlicensed game is unlicensed. I think it needs to be labeled that way.JeremeK (talk) 15:40, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

  • I wouldn't be against that as long as it's sourced. Maybe something as simple as an asterisk next to the title, since there's only about 15-20 or so on here out of 900. The trick is identifying all of them: Action 52, for instance, is a part of the Allgame list but I happen to know it's unlicensed, and there's nothing in the sources used to indicate that. Any title released in Taiwan exclusively is unlicensed, along with Oh Mummy, the Wisdom Tree titles, Pier Solar and the Great Architects, and five games from Accolade before licensing: Ishido: The Way of Stones, Mike Ditka Power Football, Star Control, Hardball!, and Turrican. I'm of the opinion that "the games cannot be promised to meet Sega standards" isn't an issue because this isn't an official Sega list, and also because quite a few of the unlicensed titles have notability - obviously the Accolade ones have some tied into Sega v. Accolade, and the Sega Genesis article has a section with coverage on recent Genesis new releases which are unlicensed: Beggar Prince, Star Odyssey, Legend of Wukong, and Pier Solar and the Great Architects, of note of which Beggar Prince and Legend of Wukong were originally Taiwanese pirate games. It's sort of interesting, I think, how the Genesis' unlicensed titles seem to have more of a presence in reliable source coverage than most other consoles I've seen.

Unreleased games?[edit]

Do we list unreleased games in here, or not?--SexyKick 13:32, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

  • If it's unreleased, I wouldn't because then it wasn't a game for the system. I've done cancelled titles before in List of Sega 32X games as its own separate, well-cited list, but that's a bit of a rare circumstance because those titles were killed due to the failure of the add-on. Here, it's not really the same given we're talking about games that were unreleased for any variety of reasons, which is normal in the industry. Red Phoenix let's talk... 14:09, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

"Genre" tag[edit]

I think games could be listed by genre also. (talk) 19:21, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Only if you can reliably source all 900+ of them. It would have to be indisputable from a source considered reliable from this project. Red Phoenix let's talk... 19:50, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
I don't think this would be a good idea. Alot of them can be subjective, and with that, comes unneeded edit battles and such. How would you classify a game such as Medal City? Gambling? Card? Simulation? etc. ~ Dissident93 00:57, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
