Before SEGA releases the SEGA GEnesis Mini this fall, the company is looking for you, the fans, to tell them your Genesis story. Basically, if the Genesis in any way was a pivotal part of your life, they would like to hear about it. Whether you saved up a ton of money to buy one or bonded with your friends over it. Was there a particular game that got you through a hard time? Or maybe it was just your favorite system of all time. They want to know by having you send them a video of your story. We have the details for you below as you can submit to the link above.
In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the SEGA Genesis and this fall's release of the Genesis Mini, we invite you to send us a video clip sharing your personal story with the legendary console. The process is easy, as you can record and submit straight from your phone! Revisit that long summer vacation playing Phantasy Star IV, perform a cover of your favorite in-game song, share your amazing cosplay, do your best "SEGA!!" scream with your friends – we want you to show off your creativity and love for the Genesis!Send your clip by August 13th for a chance to be included in our compilation video!
