What is Sega Does?

Sega Does is a blog that will one day have a review / overview of every game ever released for a Sega console. From the obscure SG-1000 to the beloved Dreamcast, not one game will be spared.

 

This includes: worldwide releases, Japan-only releases, Europe-only releases, Brazil-only releases.

This does not include:  most unlicensed titles, most hacks that saw commercial releases in their home country (sorry Taiwan and Korea),  homebrew games.

 

Games will be reviewed in chronological order to the best of my abilities. I will be using the Japanese dates for most games, including worldwide releases. This is due to their specificity. American and European release dates include little more than the month and year of release. Japanese dates include month, day, and year. “My abilities” at this moment do not include Japanese comprehension. This hasn’t hindered my progress much thus far, but I better know some Japanese by the time I get to the Saturn.

This TokiMemo game doesn’t give its feelings away to any ol’ pasty English speaker!

 

Any games that have a release across multiple systems – like NBA Jam, which saw Genesis, Game Gear, and Sega CD releases – will be discussed in one gigantic review for comparison reasons.

Right now, the games in the lists are in chronological order, but they are still a work in progress. As I go through, I would like to add full release dates next to each game and perhaps some other information. We shall see.

I will also be writing brief features on the consoles themselves and any significant peripherals. Variants / systems like the CDX, Wondermega, Nomad, Pico, etc. will receive write ups as well.

Sega really wanted all of your hard-earned Clinton dollars.

Enjoy the reviews!

  1. Great work so far Dylan! I very much enjoy your reviews and podcast. I have a feeling that the popularity of your reviews will grow exponentially as you delve further into the Genesis/Mega Drive catalog.

  2. I’ll be very interested to follow your progress once you get into the Saturn; especially when you have to start playing and reviewing some of the Saturn “yellow label” and “red label” games – that should be a hoot! Great job so far man, I’m really enjoying your take on these games.

  3. I was wondering if you would ever consider doing an overview of classic Sega marketing? I was watching Sega commercials on Youtube recently and they’re quite funny and usually very over the top, in the best 90s style.

    • While I will mention it in a writeup, along with its games, I will not delve into specific games for two reasons: 1) I’m focusing specifically on Sega-developed hardware and the games released for it; and 2) the cost for the majority of these games is insane.

      Thanks for the question!
