RATED: The Essential Sonic Game List

No Caption Provided

There's just something about Sonic the Hedgehog that has persevered against all odds. Despite the games themselves being in the dumps for the longest time, the franchise has spawned no fewer than four cartoon adaptations ( one of which still airs for an hour every Saturday Morning, despite being in reruns since 2006), two comic book adaptations (with multiple spinoffs), plus numerous other tie-ins, from spaghettios to music CDs. If nothing else, it's evidence that the Sonic franchise has grown to such a point that it can survive even if individual parts of it are failures. Honestly, it can seem a bit difficult to make sense of it all.

Ever wonder what games are worth playing, and which ones should be avoided? Well, you've come to the right list, my friend. If there isn't a game listed on here, chances are I haven't played it and/or it's probably not worth playing.
