Genesis does what Nintendon't.

Sega is a popular manufacturer of video game hardware and software that rivaled Nintendo in the '80s and '90s. Homestar Runner and his pals allude to Sega games from time to time, and Sega tapes can often be found lying around in their homes.

In spite of many Sega references on the site, The Brothers Chaps revealed in an interview that they turned down a game offer from Sega of America. One of the reasons given was they had never owned a Sega console (but had friends who did).
