A few days ago, we reported that Lidl will be selling the Sega Mega Drive Flashback for the very tempting price of €69.99 just in time for Christmas.

The news has certainly captured the imagination of the Irish public and the console is sure to be placed under more than a few trees before December 25. But what exactly is a retro gamer getting when they unwrap this most welcome of gifts on Christmas morning?

Well, along with the absolute classics like Sonic The Hedgehog (1 and 2), and the Mortal Kombat series, there are a total of 85 built-in games, most of which originally appeared on the Mega Drive, Master System or Game Gear.

The list is a veritable gold mine for anyone looking for a fix of nostalgia over the festive season and it's sure to have you messaging all your childhood mates to help you roll back the years.
