I thought it might not be, but I don't know the difference between any of these games except "Sonic 2 good one"

1. Sonic 2 8
2. Sonic 3 0
3. Sonic and Knuckles 0
22. Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles 10
23. Sonic the Hedgehog CD 4

Well, it wasn't a COMPLETE stomp, as Sonic CD gathered 4 votes, but I guess it's pretty clear that Sonic 2 and 3/Knuck are the best Sonic games.

Next up:

31. Strider
9. Alien Soldier
32. Quackshot
25. Shinobi III

I still can't get over Strider's budget-assed attack "animation". Unplayable.

Quackshot does the Good Game thing of making your primary attack into a traversal tool, which earns it some legit brownie points. But it is not very fun these days. Which is also something I'd level at the original Strider. Shinobi 3 and Alien Soldier both just hold up a little better to me.

I'm sorry no one here had a single friend in the mid-nineties to enjoy Mortal Kombat with.

Legitimately why? UMK3 had every stage, character and fatality from 1 and 2 plus more. And all the genesis blood effects.

If you're arguing that the mechanics were smoother somehow that's legitimate I guess but I'll still make fun of you for it because it's early mortal Kombat and none of us were playing that shit competetively.

Shit just felt bad. MK3 always seemed kinda "slippery" in a way that MK2 didn't, maybe because of the run button?? It never caught on with us.

the problem is there are 4 games that need to advance this round and UMK3 needs it maybe slightly less than the rest

I mean, I don't want to just vote for Ecco and Ecco... but I can't in good conscience not vote for Ecco and Ecco

I know it doesn't stand a chance in this round, but Cool Spot has just way too good art and animations for a fucking 7-up brand platformer.

the best thing about licensed platformers in the 16 bit age was that some devs still put in the goddamn work
