Today, is a very special day because it marks the 30th Anniversary of one of the most legendary game consoles of all time. On October 29th, 1988 the Sega Mega Drive was released and since that day the landscape of the gaming world had changed for the better. The Sega Mega Drive was the first 16-bit game consoles to achieve mainstream success. The Mega Drive was also the game console that pushed Nintendo to release the Super NES back in 1990 to compete with Sega. The visuals for games on the Mega Drive were simply amazing which made the console seem like it was ahead of its time.

We got to see games such as Sonic the Hedgehog along with the Phantasy Star which became popular during the early 90’s. Without the Mega Drive console it would be hard to imagine what the landscape of gaming would have looked like back in the early 90’s. The Mega Drive console will always hold a special place in the the hearts of retro gamers who grew up between the late 80’s and early 90’s.
