Sega was a juggernaut back in the 1990's, and I still love the Sega Genesis! It's one of my favorite video game consoles.
Over the years though, Sega has had some major downfalls, specifically the latest Sonic the Hedgehog games.
However, they want to win you back.
Being a '90's kid, I can't help but remember my childhood, which felt like it ended on December 31, 1999. After that date, everything felt older ya know?
If you listen to me on air or read any of my blogs, you'll know that I am quite the gamer. Before you were Playstation or Xbox...
You were either Sega or Nintendo.
Playing NBA Jam on Sega Genesis is still one of the funnest things that I do with friends. For pretty much my entire life, I played only 2 player games with my friend Jon. Until we discovered the 4 player adapter later in life that allowed 4 players to play on screen.

However, I really don't think there was a time where Zombies weren't popular. Night of the Living Dead made zombies pretty terrifying...you know what made zombies fun though? This game!
25 years...that is a long time am I right? What were you doing 25 years ago? Were you even born yet? I was born in 1987 (making me 26 years old), and my first game console was the NES. I loved that little grey box...it introduced me to the 8-Bit world! Mario, TMNT, Back to the Future...you name it, Nintendo had it! As I got older, I wanted more awesome graphics, and a neighbor (my friend of over 2
Video games and violence seem to be a match made in heaven (or hell...whatever works best.) Violent video games have been around since video games were even created. When most think of a violent video game today, they think headshots, guns, grenades, and maybe a chainsaw. We forget though, before we grabbed a gun in a video game, we grabbed 2x4's with rusty nails, lead pipes, and the good ol' fist
