With baseball season in full-swing (see what we did there?) Old School Gamer counts down five baseball games you’ve got to play on the Sega Genesis. So go dust off that controller and play ball!
World Series Baseball 98: One of the last baseball games released on the console and easily one of the best visually. It definitely pushed the hardware as hard as it could.
Sports Talk Baseball: The sound is awful, but it was a blast back in the day.
RBI Baseball 3: One of the best cartridge-based baseball series ever. This is easily the best version on the Genesis.
MLBPA Baseball: Before Triple Play and in-between Tony LaRussa, EA tried super hard with this entry.
Hardball!: The Accolade team doesn’t get nearly as much credit for their sports games as they should. Many of the developers on this one ended up at EA later in their careers for good reason.
