Compared to current generation games, The graphics may seem dated. However, Many of the games still manage to hold up to this day. Take Earthbound (Mother 2) as an example; It was originally made for the SNES, But many people today are still playing this game because of it's amazing story, Quirky humor, And interesting gameplay. Graphically, Many current games even try to recreate the look of these games, Such as the award winning title Shovel Knight. The Genesis is similar in this regard, With many classic games, Most notably the Sonic series. In fact, The game that many see as the return to the golden age of Sonic (Sonic Mania) attempts to recreate the look and feel of the old Genesis titles. Therefore, Both consoles have aged considerably well, Despite being several decades old.
