I remember seeing a picture several years ago of "The World's Tallest Console". It consisted of the first generation Sega Genesis and Sega CD, the 32X, the Game Genie,Sonic and Knuckles, with Sonic 3 plugged into it.

I was checking to see if anyone has that picture or the ability to recreate it?

Bonus points if you can think of a taller one.

It's important to add stipulations to this. I'd suggest that it should still be playable and that it should not contain any duplicates. I know the picture you are talking about, but don't believe I have it. – Dave McClelland Nov 30 '10 at 18:11
You'll be happy to know that this question is the #1 Google general (not image) result for the phrase, world's tallest console sega genesis. – John Rudy Nov 30 '10 at 18:19
Yep, I just searched on Google Images and found them, similar results as the non-image search. – Doozer Blake Nov 30 '10 at 19:09
Sorry, but although this stuff is fun, I feel that it is really more like gamer trivia and should be closed. – sjohnston Dec 1 '10 at 0:57
Thanks for the feedback and sorry for not checking google first. I just thought it would spur some interesting discussion. – th3m3at Dec 1 '10 at 14:28

What the heck is all that? :-) – Josh Dec 1 '10 at 21:41
The 32X add-on allowed you to play 32-bit games, instead of the standard 16-bit Genesis titles. I bought this in order to play Doom. The Sonic-n-Nuckles add-on allowed you to insert other Sonic titles, and play those titles as Knuckles instead of Sonic. – WEFX Jun 23 '12 at 2:39
