Sonic the Hedgehog is a great old-school game that started the sonic franchise off, and was and still is fun to play. Sonic quickly became Mario's rival, with his high speed, fun game. The levels are split up into 6 worlds, each with three acts. You play through the level, collecting rings, trying to get to the goal. If you reach it with 50 rings, a larger ring appears, allowing you to play for a Chaos Emerald. Sonic must also face small enemies throughout the level, trying to make sonic lose his rings. There are also many intense bosses to face. This is definitely a game worth getting for the virtual console.
