Best genesis game ever________I uploaded a version of the rom here: rcimaginations.net/ECCO2.zip, it's legal since the system is discontinued. Genesis emulator can be googled.

lmao I remember when Ecco first came out it was the most uber and advanced game ever. (before most of you ytmnd'ers were born....like 1989 or whatever)

However much I love the Ecco games, I won't lie... They scared the sh*t out of me. The aquatic calm yet unsettling music mixed with the idea that the only way a being could save the world is to do it underwater... I don't know. 5'd, anyways.

5 for Ecco but it wasn't the best genesis game ever... I'd say it's the Shining Force series or Streets of Rage 2.
May 22nd, 2006

That's...it? Besides, SHINING FORCE is the best Genesis game.

I don't know what this game is but the music is disturbingly epic for a game about Dolphins, therefore I feel this justifies a 5.

@people whining about nothing funny@So I decided to make a serious ytmnd for once, get over it. I thought Ecco was a kickass game, so I decided to dedicate a ytmnd to it. If you don't know what it is, maybe you should google it, get a rom, get a genesis emulator, and play it.

lol: i find it funny how people smart enought to realise that while the game rocked, but how this ytmnd sucks are imediately downvoters. Please explain why this ytmnd is good? Hmm the game is good? well that dosent explain sh*t. The game is good, the ytmnd sucks, go back to gradeschool if you dont have the inteligence to figure this out. Using this logic, every sonic ytmnd should be in the top list. So dont upvote a crappy site cause you like whats related to it.

Thank you boonw for explaining why this sucks, i just couldnt fathom why these goddamn children would 5 this crap
May 22nd, 2006
(0)
lol, downvoters fail. People are voting for the concept here, not the quality. The original Picard ytmnd had absolutely no redeeming qualities other than a song(probably made by someone else) and a picture. Yet, the concept was great, and people liked star trek, so win. The feeling wouldn't be quite right if I mixed in some random fad like NEDM to make the ytmnd funny. This is mostly for nostalgia effect, and if that's not enough for you, tough.
May 22nd, 2006

What the hell was the purpose of this? I wasted my time waiting for something cool, not freaking dolphins! And the game was easy asn pointless.

YTMNDS don't have to be funny, they just have to entertain. That's why this site should have a 5 average.

To Gerund: Just because someone liked a title doesn't make them a Fan Boy. P.S. - Stop acting as a noun and do your f*cking job.

Worst game evar. Worst music evar. Worst system evar. The SNES had way better gameplay, graphics, and music.
