If you believe in God, you may want to thank Him for Nintendo‘s NES Classic Edition, because it appears to have catalyzed a trend of micro-retro-consoles that could bring joy to the hearts of millions. Sega is now getting into the action with not just one but two miniature Sega Mega Drive (aka the Sega Genesis) consoles, and they appear to be an improvement on the NES Classic Edition model in several key areas.

For one, both the handheld and the micro-console Sega Mega Drive come pre-loaded with 80, rather than just 30, games, and the micro-console is compatible with old Sega Genesis cartridges and controllers.  Here’s a full list of those 80 games, courtesy of The Daily Dot:
