The 7 Best Sonic the Hedgehog Games: Racing through Time

Sonic the Hedgehog has a long and turbulent history in videogames, but which are the best games featuring the blue bur?

Rebel_Scum158d ago

Generations over Mania? Please… Generations doesnt have any new ideas in the levels/bosses.

Also a top 7 of Sonic games shouldn’t have any 3D crap and contain at least one of the 8-bit titles.

Sonic CD getting snubbed is weird. Number 1 is definitely interchangable between Sonic 2 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles.

Snookies12158d ago

Nothing wrong with putting Generations over Mania. Generations had a lot more to it. Mania was just a bit too short, despite how amazing it was. They're both top-tier Sonic games though.

Profchaos158d ago (Edited 158d ago )

I don't think mania was to short given 1,2,3, knuckles were between 1 and 3 hours long.

Mania was 5 hours roughly

However i say the originals feel more repayable because they are so short

Profchaos158d ago (Edited 158d ago )

The 8 bit games were pretty bad overall do you mean the 16 bit ones

Rebel_Scum158d ago

Nope. Sonic 1 & 2 on the master system were great. Dont confuse these with the game gear versions either.

Profchaos158d ago

Top 7 for me
7 cd
6 mania
5 Frontiers
4 sonic 3
3 sonic 1
2 sonic and knuckles
1 sonic 2

Sometimes I feel like the Sonic Advanced games just didn’t exist with how much it’s always forgotten 😭

Chocoburger157d ago

Even as a Sonic fan, I didn't really care for those games, and getting the Chaos Emeralds were freakin' horrible. Even with an emulator and save states, I didn't have the desire to try. I also didn't like most of the levels or bosses either. Unfortunately, DiMPs aren't good at making Sonic games.


PlayStation 4 Emulator RPCSX Can Now Run Sonic Mania At 45 FPS

RPCSX, the newly announced PS4 emulator made by the wonderful people behind RPCS3, was shown running Sonic Mania at a whopping 45 FPS.

Really cool, hopefully, they can advance with this emulator pretty quickly. Their work with the RPCS3 was amazing given how notoriously hard that console architecture is.

walken7336d ago

Correction: it runs the intro screen and then turns into a green mess. Still cool progress, but who approves this garbage with click-bait titles?

Profchaos336d ago (Edited 336d ago )

Interesting watching this advance it might take a few more years but the community will be very thankful in the end after all Sony may have given us full PS4 backwards compatibility in the ps5 but they still haven't given us 60 fps patches and modes for a number of popular games like bloodborne.
I can however see Sony taking a stance against this emulator unlike rpcs3 which was emulating the PS3 as the PS3 was off store shelves and many games had no legal purchase route given psn doesn't have then entire PS3 library available. PS4 is quite different

Abear21336d ago (Edited 336d ago )

Own this from PS Plus. How ironic people spend their precious time, hours of their life they will never get back, trying to get games to run on hardware it’s not intended to when they could easily play it another way. For free no less. Every day things get more odd.


Why the Separation Between Modern and Classic Sonic is a Double-Edged Sword

The divide between both iterations of Sonic is now reaching spin-off territory, and the way Sega is handling it is both a blessing and a curse.
