Console: Sega CD
Complex says: Sonic CD was one of the first titles for the Sega CD, and while Sega was mocked for their use of CD games, haters were silenced by the win that was this game. It was everything you wanted from the franchise, and was the first of the series to feature 3D gameplay—and with no bugs! Even better, the joke was on all the other console makers when they followed suit and started using discs for their games, using the Internet for online (yes, Sega thought of doing that first, even though no one used it because you had to listen to crackly phone noises every time you used the Internet).
