SGM Super 30: Video Game #10

Sonic The Hedgehog

Yep, this thing's still going strong.

I cannot stress this enough ... as much as I love it, don't let "Sonic 2" be your first entry into the Sonic series. To this day, I can't make it through Sonic The First because I'm stuck trying to pull off a spin dash attack (pressing down and revving up by pressing the jump button like a crackhead), a move that wasn't introduced until Sonic 2. You'd be surprised at how much of nothing a spin dash attack does in Sonic 1.

But, this game had to come first and succeed, in order for my favorite entry to be developed. Therefore, it holds a place of honor.

And hey, at least this game doesn't have Miles "Tails" Prower.
