Sonic the Hedgehog 2
by Masato Nakamura
While I was mostly a Nintendo guy in my console days, my best friend had a Genesis. We played the hell out of this game – especially the 2-player mode. Otherwise, one of us would grab the second controller and have Tails help out. He was especially useful when Sonic had few or no rings… I actually preferred this game over its successor, Sonic 3.
