19. Sonic the Hedgehog (Mega Drive)

I've always been a Nintendo guy at heart, and the Nintendo v Sega/Mario v Sonic arguments of old always saw me favour Nintendo and Mario, but that didn't mean I dismissed Sega or Sonic outright, unlike others who considered Sega to be their nemesis. I played Sonic games a lot, and in my eyes the first one is the best. The Green Hill Zone, Act 1 is one of the most iconic levels in video game history, and I believe that it is there where Sonic is at its best. Sure later levels in this game and in others may have been more complex, but there's something about speeding through that one level that makes it stand out above all the others.

Number 18 was a Retro revival.
