Trying to buy a genesis but I might buy that bootleg rip off system that you can play SNES/NES/Genesis games on.

Favorite? Earth worm Jim, ToeJam and Earl series, Bubble and Squeak, and Shining force series. Also Sonic 3. Off hand I can not think of any favorite SNES games outside of Ranma, SF, and Mario :/

Yeah that's pretty sad.

The last time I checked, I have all of these older systems in working condition:

* top-loading NES
* SNES (still working since 1991)
* Sega Genesis
* TurboGrafx-16
* original Playstation
* Gameboy Color (still working since '98)
* Game Gear

I have a Sega Saturn, but my RAM cartridge doesn't seem to be working. I'll have it checked soon.

Also, I'm not sure if my Sega CD is reliable. It's difficult to set up, and the interface isn't all that intuitive.

I only have my SNES from when I was younger now. Everything else broke down.

I've been looking around for another Astrocade though, and I've been coming up with nothing so far around the area when I've been able to afford it. One of these days I'll be able to find one when I have the cash, though. Dang things are expensive when I can find them, and usually I don't have available funds for it when I do. It makes me really wish my old one hadn't been tossed out so I could've had it fixed instead.

They sell a similar model in Gamestop/Gamecrazy here. (not the same model)

Astrocade I can't help you with.
