The latest issue of the UK classic gaming magazine Retro Gamer is celebrating its 150th issue in a big way by counting down the 150 Greatest Games Ever as selected by readers. What’s so cool about the issue is that for many of the entries, they turned to those in the fan community to wax nostalgic on the greatest games. Several classics from the developer have made the cut. Just some include 1986’s OutRun with a piece written by Sumo Digital’s Steve Lycett, Shenmue with thoughts from the Shenmue Dojo webmaster, and (as stated in our headline) a write-up on Sonic the Hedgehog 2 by Sonic Retro’s very own webmaster Scarred Sun.
Seeing as the magazine is out there for sale right now both physically and digitally, I’m not going to spoil the surprise of the game’s placement or what was said, so you’ll just have to find out for yourself.
I encourage buying Retro Gamer anyway. They do fine work if you enjoy quality reporting, even if it’s a little more classic game focused.
Better than most of the crud run online at any rate. Looking at you Gawker.
For me… Sonic Adventure 2 > Sonic The Hedgehog 2
It’s no surprise I don’t like Sonic 2 as much as I used to back in the day and personally I think the game is very overrated, that’s not to say it’s horrible by any means but for me games like Sonic 3 and Sonic Adventure 1&2 are far more entertaining.
