    There's nothing SOLID about anything that AtGames puts out.

    I'm so glad SEGA dumped AtGames and decided to just make their own Genesis Mini.

    My Uncle Clark has the ATGAMES Sega Genesis Classic and he has no problem with it. If you have a quality problem, why not get an HDMI Adapter?

  • Mister Nikolai Belenspook

    I have the genesis mini on the thumbnail,works perfect. Came with 70 sega games, and wired controllers
    Edit: never mind, didn’t have problems with sound, or have the wireless crap,just honest gameplay with a mini console.

    If you think that Sonic sounds bad on the AtGames genesis, listen to Sonic Spinball's settings menu on the thing. Oh boy....

    in my mind Atari games have a smell, not a bad smell. it's like a hipster Portland basement bar smell or comfy ugly ass couch smell.

    I have the atgames Genesis flashback. It’s not bad, it runs fine and it actually has great games, and plays actual cartridges which is pretty cool, I have no problems with it at all but it comes with like 40 stupid not even Sega educational mobile games that none of my brothers or I even care about. We only like jacks pea and hidden agenda because the music is freaking hilarious.
    Edit: the genesis flashback I got came with wired controllers tho

      The genesis mini is way better than the nes and snes classic (yes I’ve played on them my friends have one) and it’s WAY better than the atgames one but to be honest the atgames one is a good deal for $20

      Shinku Quickman my dad had an original genesis as a kid and I played it when I was younger too so I do know what it’s like

      Sorry, but to anyone who's played the original Mega Drive/Genesis, that AtGames thing is a mess. Thankfully Sega pulled their heads out of their asses and finally ditched AtGames for probably the best company in the world at retro gaming ports, M2. The Genesis Mini that's out now I'd argue is better than the NES or SNES ones.

    To be fair, the lower sound quality of the genesis at games makes Robotnik encounters more threatening

    I never ralized how the bad the flashback used to be. I have a flashback 9 gold and it has proper wireless controllers, HDMI, Activision games and an SD slot to add more games. While it's not as good as using real hardware on a CRT TV it's very practical and good enough.

    The sound for at games was so bad I couldn't hear it in my right headphone. I'm not kidding, the rest of the video worked well, but specifically in the at games sound sample, it ONLY worked for my left headphone

    6:11 Composite not Component

  • Scrambles the Death Dealer

    I will never make the mistake of buying an atGames product ever again.
    Even my autocorrect knows what's up - I tried typing "atGames" and it changed it to "ashamed."

    Honestly, for the atgames consoles you should get the handhelds. Same crappy sound, bit muuuch better quality.

    Aren’t you glad Sega released an oficial Genesis mini now? With good emulation and an ok menu?

    I remember when my parents wanted to do a "family game night" and that she had bought a micro console but couldn't remember what system it was, my expectations were already low but nothing could've prepared me for the Atari Flashback.

    6:12 That isn't Component out, that's *Composite*. Component video uses three lines for video and two for audio, for a total of 5 cables. Composite just used one for video, and two for audio, making for a total of three.

    If you're not using an original console for nostalgia, just use a raspberry pi

    3:35 So THATS why we have Encore mode in Sonic Mania!

  • Mikuisgood12
    Mikuisgood12 Month ago

    Grab a raspberry pi for like 40 dollars and put retropie in it. It can run up to n64 (though N64 is buggy due to proccesor)

    The Atari Flashback series started out terrible - the first one was an NES-on-a-chip with some crappy ports. Then the second one was amazing - it's literally a version of the actual Atari 2600 hardware redesigned for modern fabrication techniques, and came complete with contact points on the circuit board to add a cartridge port if you so desired.

    Then atgames took over and they're just shitty emulation on an arm board :(
