While owners of the original Genesis games included in this compilation shouldn't even give it a second glance, those new to the Sega scene will want to check out some of the games that made the system a 16-bit success. Looking at the roster of included titles shows that Sega delivered that magical "arcade" feeling in its early years, with some true classics that are as playable today as they were when they were released between 1989-91.

This is a very good compilation to get started with if you are a new Mega Drive fan. You will get to know some of the most famous franchises ever on the system. Too bad it is region-locked, but there is always the Mega Games 6 for Europeans instead. For old time collectors, it is an easy way to stock up on those classics you don't want to throw out loads of cash on separately. The two major disadvantages about it are the inferior versions of the Sonic and Shinobi games and the inclusion of Super Hang-On. The three other games aren't the best, but they are still worthing picking up once in a while once you are tired of the better classics. 6-Pak is at least three times better than anything by 2Pac and if you glue it on your stomach, the girls might love you.
