Console: Sega Genesis
Complex says: There’s a lot you can say about this title. The first few Sonic games were like the Rocky movies: The first three were amazing, and the fourth really isn't up to par, but you just can't stop yourself from devouring it (ayo!). In both cases, just when you think the hero might have lost it, the powers that be add a big bad villain (Knuckles, meet Ivan Drago), and after having fought each other for so long, hero and anti-hero put their differences aside and realize the true bad guy is Communism! Or, y'know, Eggman. Either way.
