The Terminator for Sega Genesis- Horror Retrogaming – Gameplay and Commentary

The Terminator for Sega Genesis- Horror Retrogaming - Gameplay and Commentary

This week's Horror Retrogaming pick is The Terminator on Sega Genesis. Its a platformer, but it is not a good platformer. It's like the Terminator Genisys of games. This game based on the 1984 movie (very loosely based) had extremely clumsy level design. As you'll see in the video, I encounter a difficult boss character before I find any simple enemies. Then, I make it to a door that seemingly can't be opened. The forces of Skynet are strong...and I only have ONE life. Wow.

Every Thursday, I put out a video in my Horror Retrogaming Series. In this series, I'm trying to illustrate how horror has been presented in gaming these past few decades. I will trace this evolution by playing adaptations of horror movies and books, early survival horror games, and any old school game that tried its hardest to actually be scary. I'm a huge horror fan, and this series is the flagship of my channel.

This game was captured from my live Twitch stream.

  • Good video man, this game can be a ball breaker that's for sure hahaha. I find the Master System version of it though somewhat fun sometimes, more than other versions of it anyway.
