Retro Wrap-Up - Sega Channel | oprainfall

Another week is behind us, ladies and gentlemen. And to be completely honest—I’ve got SEGA on the brain. I’ve recently dug out some of my old SEGA Genesis games that’ll never find their way to the Virtual Console (see: Disney’s Aladdin [yes, I think the Genesis version is the superior one!] and more); I’m going to find a way to relive my past before long.

Speaking of my past: the reason I’m such a SEGA kid is solely due to having access to fifty games a month when I was young. I got to experience almost everything that console had, even an exclusive import or two! SEGA Channel, I salute you.

In the spirit of being a connoisseur, the oprainfall Retro Commercial Research Team—me—brings you a handful the SEGA Channel’s greatest TV moments here in the United States.

Here are the highlights from this past week:
