It's really tough to make a "must-haves for all Genesis owners", since not all people like all genres. In general I'd agree with Link's list, and add:

Gunstar Heroes

Contra: Hard Corps

Castlevania Bloodlines

Dynamite Headdy

Beyond Oasis / The Story of Thor

Landstalker
 
In no particular order:

Gunstar Heroes

Bomberman

Sonic 2,3,and Sonic & Knuckles

X-men

NHL '94

Aladdin

NBA Jam T.E.

Street Fighter II Championship Edition
 
Let's see (in no particular order):

-Contra: Hard Corps

-Castlevania Bloodlines

-Streets of Rage 2

-Final Fight CD

-Sonic CD

-Guardian Heroes

-Sonic & Knuckles

First off, Link, Shining in the Darkness is part of the Shining series. It's the first one in the series. Second, Mr. Mort, Guardian Heroes is a Saturn game (although a VERY VERY VERY good game). I think u meant Gunstar Heroes....

Anyways, back to the topic. Toejam and Ealr is a classic. Zoop is a bad-ass puzzle game. Pit-Fighter is a good one also. Just get an emu and download a bunch of games to see which one u want.
 
Yes Shining in the Darkness is the first "shining" game

it also had a 3d dungeon crawler sequal, Shining in the Holy Ark, for Saturn, I believe.

Quite fun. and the same artistic style was used in the sequals Shining Force, and it's sequals.
 
Thunder Force IV, Streets Of Rage 2, Mega Turrican, Red Zone, Alien Soldier-(If you can find it! Only made in Japan.), Shadow Dancer, and my personal favorite: Shadowrun!-(I wasted many hours on this game playing on my Nomad.)
 
Alien solder was not just released in Japan. It was relesed globaly.

Anyways:

Good Games:

Shining and/in the Darkness

Shining Force 1

Shining Force 2

Gunstar Heros

Sonic 1-3 +S + K

Streets of rage 1-3

Alien Soldeir

Steel Empire

Helfire

id have to say...

REVENGE OF SHINOBI

SONIC 3 + KNUCKLES

DESERT STRIKE

ALADDIN

STREETS OF RAGE 2

XMEN 2: CLONE WARS (XMEN 1 SUCKS HARDER Acidics!!!)

NBA JAM

out of all the geny games i've played those mentioned have the best gameplay.
 
OMG i think there must be some confusion here about the xmen games.

the xmen game im thinking of is the one where u start off in the virtual training area which turns into a jungle and u play as gambit, cyclops, storm or wolverine.

xmen2 clone wars where u begin in the snow right when u turn on the megadrive, has FAR superior graphics sound and animation.

so are we talking about the same games here or what? maybe u mean the snes game? anyone else care to comment?

We are.

X-men 2 is way more grainy.

Plus it was too easy.

X men 1 had me confused for a month before I figured out Professor X was trying to tell you to press reset on the Megadrive >_<

Plus you play as Gambit, Wolverine, cyclops and Nightcrawler
 
My top three:

LANDSTALKER

FLASHBACK

WONDERBOY II
