Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Genesis / Sonic Team / 1992
Guessed by TruckOSaurus

The second game in the Sonic franchise was really the shining star of the series - Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is a nearly flawless achievement and was the best platformer of its time. This game just had it all: great level design, a fantastic soundtrack, great variety in the feel and look of each level (a great improvement over the first title was to not have 3 acts for every zone) and even some gorgeous visuals that look good even today, all made for a very memorable experience. There was even a multiplayer mode that was also a lot of fun. This was one of the biggest games of my childhood (maybe THE biggest) and I just have a lot of fond memories from it. I only wish they had kept Sonic in the right direction, but unfortunately after this game I felt like they slowly started pushing him more and more in the wrong directions, with it starting to become unbearable by the mid 2000s.
