There was a time when Sega made a significant effort to preserve the title of its legacy, allowing new fans to experience the game even if they predicted it. Fast forward to modern day and the company is only interested in re-releasing Sonic 1 and 2 on every platform imaginable (though not the quiet widescreen ports).
We have gone through many console generations without proper protection for this franchise and some titles such as the Neo Geo Pocket Color’s Sonic Pocket Adventure have never received any kind of rearrangement. This is what we want to see today – the title Sonic which is at least 15 years old and locked to its original hardware.
We’re not exposing any old games, these either need to be legitimately brilliant, are an important part of the franchise’s history, or have the ability to improve with modern hardware. (Sorry Sonics Schoolhouse, maybe next time)
Have you played any games in this video and are there any others you’d like to see again?
