For some reason I preferred Streets of Rage 1.

Some of my other favourites would be...

Castlevania: Bloodlines
Earthworm Jim
Earthworm Jim 2
Ecco the Dolphin
Mega Bomberman
Wolf Child

I prefer the Mega CD versions where possible (EWJ, Ecco, Wolf Child), but they're still great.

Shining Force II - A grid based strategy RPG that has a fantastic story, and looks beutiful.
Sonic the Hedgehog II- Sonic's best game.
Phantasy Star IV - Just as good as Super Mario RPG, but not quite as good as FFIII/ChronoTrigger.
Thunder Force III - A gem of a Shoot'em up.
X-Men 2 Clone Wars - Go get this. You'll love it. Trust me. ;)
Vectorman - A great shoot'em up/platformer.
