    I got the 6 button contoller from Sega for the Genesis but haven't come across a game that supports it. What were they made for? Also what is the "Mode" button on the controller used for?

    This is a guess, the Street Fighter II games for the Genesis?

    As for the mode, a toggle between 3 button mode and 6 button mode? Also a guess...:)

    Lots and lots of games supported the six button. Mostly fighting games... I know Comix Zone supports it :)

    And yes, the mode button has a purpose... if you hold it down while turning the machine on, the six button functions like a normal three button. This was necessary for some games, Ristar comes to mind. It would randomly lock up if you used a six button on it.

    I know Mortal Kombat 2 + 3 supported it, I'm not sure about the original tho...

    MK 1 was one of the first games to support 6 buttons.

    I think it might have been unofficially supported... If I remember correctly, the MK manual and box mentioned nothing about 6-button support. Was the pad even available when the game came out?

    yeah, it was. I bought MK when it came out in USA, together with a 6 button pad which had just been released too.

    That's correct, I own Mortal Kombat and a 6-button controller so I know for a fact that it works! ;)

    I liked the button layout of those games-X, A, Z, C for attacks, Y or B for block (and a run button in MK3). It was rather intuitive. Too bad the ports of those games really suck. :)

    i have super street fighter 2 and it supports it. i probably have a few other games too, but thats the only one that comes to mind (besides wing commander for sega cd, which is barely playable without a six button)

    Shadow Squadron [32X], SamSho [Genny & SCD], and Fatal Fury Special [SCD] support the big6 as well.

    Popful Mail is an SCD game that don't like it much - many random graphical glitches.

    Graphical glitches due to getting garbage controller data... I'm not even going to ask.

    Doom for the 32x supports 6 button controllers. It mostly changes weapons.

    Streets Of Rage 3 also supports 6 buttons, let you do their finshing combo moves stright off (like Axel double kick) and back attacks which normaly have to be a different way (Holding B button for a while then letting go *e.g Axel Double Kick*, or pressing B, C buttons at once *Back attack*)
