I'm scheduled to be a guest on The Pie Factory Podcast tomorrow to talk about all things Sega Genesis.

I was wondering, which name did you like best: Genesis or Mega Drive?

I liked Genesis better as it meant the start of something great.

Mega Drive, to me, sounded like either a monster truck or 1980's Heavy Metal Band.

 

I think what you grew up with, can influence your vote however.

 

The guys at the Pie Factory Podcast, also thought Genesis was the better name.

 

Side note: I thought Nomad was an awesome name for a portable Genesis.
