OnLive Released 11 SEGA Genesis (Mega Drive) Classic Games to the PlayPack


Yesterday, OnLive held a poll on their Facebook page to let the gamers decide the release order for the first week of SEGA Genesis (Mega Drive) classic games coming to the OnLive PlayPack. Golden Axe won the poll hands down with 366 votes, with Sonic 3D Blast (139 votes) and Comix Zone (90 votes) following distantly. OnLive also said that if they can get over 250 shares of the poll on Facebook, they will release all games together. It looks like this is the case, as OnLive today released all the games up for votes in the poll and even added an additional game, Gain Ground.

OnLive also tweeted, "Stay tuned till next Monday when we will do it all again with another set of @SEGA games and a tougher challenge to unlock…" It looks next week OnLive will require more shares of the poll to unlock all games together.

It looks as though the SEGA Genesis (Mega Drive) classic games that OnLive will release to the PlayPack are part of the SEGA 48-Game Mega Arcade Pack that is on Amazon. You can also find these games on Steam.

Here are the SEGA Genesis (Mega Drive) classic games released to the OnLive PlayPack today:
