I agree with most of the list, but I would remove Sonic CD from it. When I finally played it, I couldn't believe how bad it was. Level design was awful and the time traveling mechanic was so bad that I purposely slowed down when a time travel post appeared, and I cursed when i unintentionally activated one and had to endure the loading animation.
Sonic Unleashed is criminally underrated. Sure, it's not 100% perfect but once you get past the learning curve, there's a hidden gem beneath the surface. For years I avoided it because of the negative reviews. Recently I decided to give it a shot and almost rage quit immediately. Despite my frustrations, I powered through and I'm so glad I did. The game reminds me so much of Mario Odyssey. It's amazing how well this 9 year old game still holds up today!
The day time stages are the best Sonic boost levels of any Sonic game, better than Generations, Colours and Forces. I had so much fun with those levels.
