The Sega Mega drive/ Genesis arguably has a better library of 2p simultaneous/multiplayer couch co-op games than the SNES, and here we take a look at 50 of the greatest.
Rules for making the games list are:
PAL/NA games only, no Jap Megadrive exclusives (GA 3) / no Kor/Rus exclusives/ homebrews.
No Sports games, they're a whole different kettle of fish.
No lightgun games, not good for emulating and not much chance of you and a friend having the blue & pink justifiers.
Must be simultaneous ,no tag team (WWF) or taking in turns.
No Sonic 2 ,Tails is useless,a dreadful co-op game but brilliant 1 player ofcourse !
These are not listed in any particular order (too difficult to judge) but for what it's worth SOR2 would be my number 1 choice and had many hours of fun on SOR and Golden axe 1 & 2 too.
