As some of you know, I believe that Pole Position II was a poor choice to be the pack-in for the 7800. It was an okay game, but it didn't have the mass appeal like Super Mario on the NES did. I believe Ms. Pac-Man was the obvious choice from the early titles. It's a great port and was one of the most popular arcade games of all time. Some may disagree, but now I have PROOF!!!! This is from issue 85 of EGM with a cover date of August, 1996: Did you read that? It says that Ms. Pac-Man was a top 20 title on the Sega Genesis in sales And because of it's popularity, they where porting Ms. Pac-Man to the SNES And this was at a time when the Playstation, Saturn and N64 were battling So basically, a decade after the 7800 came out, Ms. Pac-Man was showing it's strength on the Genesis and SNES. Can you name any other classic title that was doing that? I didn't find any articles about PP II racing away on the Genesis and bringing in the sales. I'm not saying it would've made the 7800 anywhere near the level of the NES, but I wouldn't be surprised if it would've double 7800 system sales potentially leading to more games being made for the system and possibly a longer life.
