I would have Daxter in the top. He was ok in his solo on the PSP, but I never liked that "animal with an attitube" BS.

I actually found Daxter to be a pretty cool and funny character on the "Jak & Daxter" series.

Not sure why Slippy always makes the list, fact is, he was intentionally made as a crappy character.

Tails was alright back in the 2D Sonic days.

I think it's best we leave these games we're they belong...in the past

Secret Rings, Unleashed, Black Knight etc, they weren't the best at least enough for a remaster

Generations is getting one because they had something easy to shove Shadow into before the Sonic 3 film and it's probably the better ones they've did over the past decade or so.

Unleashed was one of my favorite P3 games would love a remastered version

Sonic 3 & Knuckles is peak 2D Sonic for me. Probably my most played Genesis game.

Chocoburger160d ago

No, not a divisive game. The visuals, levels, music, controls were all great. Having to buy Sonic & Knuckles wasn't an issue at all, just more awesome gaming made available to me at the time. I lived through that era, and I don't remember anyone complaining that they had to buy another cartridge just to get the complete game, if you enjoyed Sonic games on the Genesis, you were happy to get another one back then.

The only issue with Sonic 3 is that stupid freakin' horrible "BARREL OF DOOM!" all because Sonic Team didn't properly communicate to the player what to do.

This! This! THIS!!!

The only divisive thing about Sonic 3 was that freaking barrel.

Number1TailzFan160d ago

I had 1 & 2, I played 3 at someone else's house. When I heard about S3 & Knuckles I assumed it was the same game with just Knuckles added in and thought it was stupid, until I found out a while later it was much more. I wonder how much more they could've put onto the game carts, I know there were cut levels in some of the games.

is it divisive?

i think its the best 2d sonic.
