Console owners out there have access to some older video games in one way or another but PC owners are often left out in the cold. The Sega Genesis Classics Series remedies that situation a bit today by offering a selection of 16-bit Sega titles that are playable on your PC.
The bulk of what's being offered are side-scrolling action games with a bit of strategy, puzzle, and a rail shooter to mix things up. They're all great games so pick one and have a go at it but you might want to leave Ecco the Dolphin for last because it's ungodly difficult. Here's the 11 titles available right now:
- Altered Beast
- Comix Zone
- Crack Down
- Ecco the Dolphin
- Gain Ground
- Golden Axe
- Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi
- Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master
- Sonic 3D Blast
- Space Harrier II
Each game is worth $2.99 to download with the exception of Sonic 3D Blast going for $4.99; you can also opt to buy them all in a bundle for $34.89. And because these are all old games, the system requirements are quite low: Windows XP, DirectX 9, 50MB of free space, and a 32MB graphics card is all you need to run any game so even those with low-end machines can get in on some classic goodness.
