Perfect, quite simply.

Phantasy Star IV - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
The best RPG on the system and arguably of that era.

Bare Knuckle III - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
The superior version of Streets of Rage III. Easier than the overly hard SoR3, faster, plot unchanged and no silly edits on the colors and enemies/bosses.
The best Streets of Rage game ever released.

Beyond Oasis - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Also known as Story of Thor, it's the best Action/RPG of the Megadrive in my opinion. Gorgeous 2D sprites and great gameplay. Too bad it's a bit too easy and didn't have more content but it's still one of the greatest on the console.

A classic.

Mega Turrican - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Very underrated game. It's a great Run'n'gun game with exploration, some would call it a metroid-vania but a more accurate description would be Contra meets Metroid.
This is a sequel to the Amiga/Commodore games.
If you like Contra: Hard Corps, Gunstar Heroes and other games like those, go play Mega Turrican asap, it's the best of the bunch in my opinion.

Blood and broken bones...Ice cream!
Very fun and violent futuristic sports game.

Gunstar Heroes - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Arguably the best run'n'gun game on the system. Very colorful, great visuals and great in coop.
Even though i like Mega Turrican more, you'll have a lot of fun with this one!

Ristar - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Very underrated.
Not as fast as Sonic but the level design is as good as in the Sonic games and the gameplay is quite good.
Everyone needs to play this asap!

Vectorman - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Great little known gem that came out late on the Megadrive. Not many people played it because of this but it features 3D rendered graphics (like Donkey Kong games on Superfamicom), fast gameplay and good level design.
The game is hard but it's still a great game that you will enjoy playing if you don't mind hard games.

Virtua Racing - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Surprisingly smooth even though it was stripped of a lot of content and the visuals aren't anywhere near the arcade game. Fun to play with a friend, too !

Dune II : Battle for Arrakis - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
The best strategy game on the system. Not as smooth to control as the DOS version (pc) but still quite an achievement at the time of its release.

Another World - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
No game deserves its title more than this one. You'll truly be transported to another world while playing this gem of an action game.
All time classic.

Crusader of Centy - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Pretty cool Action/RPG game with similar graphics to the legend of Zelda. Story isn't as good, though and the design is a bit bland. Still very enjoyable.

MUSHA: Metallic Uniframe Super Hybrid Armor - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
M.U.S.H.A. Aleste is another great shmup among the vast library of the megadrive!
