On account of nostalgia, I picked up the Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection for the 360 the other day. I thought it might be fun to play through Sonic 2 for old time's sake. It's like riding a bike, right?


I played through this game so many times as a kid that I had the thing memorized, but I've since forgotten where little robot creatures are hiding or where to slow down because lava or water is coming up. It's hard to believe that I had such an easy time with it as a kid, but the more I play it, the more it starts to come back to me.

Plus, I've gotten the chance to play some other Sega games that I'd never heard of before, like Phantasy Star and Streets of Rage. There's so much variety that it's easy to bounce around and not get too frustrated by one thing or another. Definitely worth the investment for less than 50 cents per game.
