Numbers 1-16 are in the same rank as last year
16. Sonic & Knuckles (w/Sonic 3 attached), Genesis/GC (1994/2002), Sega/Sonic Team
Here is just another Sonic game... until you couple it with Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and gain a real, full-length game, with 4 ways to play, all the most memorable stages in one package (Angel Island, Hydrocity, Mushroom Hill, Lava Reef, Flying Battery, Ice Cap), the most sublime Chaos emerald collection game (Blue Sphere) and the ability to not only go Super with the 7 Chaos Emeralds, but to enhance them all and go Hyper. A triumph of color and music, speed and platforming, the top 2D platformer on my list
Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.
