It's sad to believe that the best years of Sonic the Hedgehog are behind him...and so we won't.

Being avid Sonic fans who have gone through a lot of heartache and sorrow over the years, we refuse to believe that the Genesis titles were all the blue speed demon had to offer and we look forward to the future of Sonic, most notably Lost Worlds.

And while, yes, we know that there are plenty of OTHER Sonic titles out there (Mean Bean Machine and Sonic Spinball being some of the better ones), we decided to stick with the platformers, both 2D and 3D, instead of talking about ALL of his titles, as that would take forever.

So, without further ado, here are the worst to very best Sonic platformers of all time. We must warn you, though. Some of the worst ones, well, they're really, really bad. And just a word of advice, don't take any of this to heart. We all love Sonic. That's why we made up this list. We hope you enjoy.
