If you are a fan of simpler games, then you will be interested in Sonic the Hedgehog. It is a game that has a very long history and has a lot of versions. However, some people say that the older versions of the game were much better. Usually, the older versions of the game are not played nowadays as much as before, mostly because there are a lot newer consoles that offer much higher quality gameplay.
Arguably the best version of the game series is the original one. The very first Sonic the Hedgehog game was probably the best one to ever come out. That is according to the feedback of many gamers. However, we can’t say with confidence which one is the best, but we can say that it was surely the most popular one. The first original version of the Sonic made over 15 million sales in the year of 1991. The second most popular version that came close to the first one was actually a sub-series version that was called Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games and it was released in 2007 for Wii and Nintendo DS console. That version had over 11 million sales just in the first year.
Sega systems were popular only for about 10 years after that people got interested in other platforms mostly because they have offered a different type of gaming, one that is far more advanced that SEGA provided. However, if you are a gamer that likes retro games, you definitely have a soft spot for the early SEGA platforms like the Genesis.
As you know, nowadays each person has its personal smartphone. However, 20 years ago the phones were a lot different just as any other gaming console. In 2006 the Sonic game came out for mobile phones. Even back then the phones were not considered to be smart, but surprisingly that version also gained a lot of popularity. Nowadays, there are different versions of mobile Sonic games but they are not so popular as the console games. After all, mobiles have limited capabilities and you can’t get the full Sonic experience from them.
Eight Generation Consoles
The eight generation consoles are all the consoles that were made from 2013 to present day. Those consoles are the most popular ones today and of course, there is a Sonic game for them. However, the newer versions don’t have nearly as much popularity as the first few ones. That is mainly because the entire gaming community has changed and people are growing up playing other types of games that seem more realistic. Only the true hardcore fans will know the feeling when you are playing a Sonic game, especially the original one of the SEGA Genesis.
