Console: Sega Master System

Sonic’s characteristic zippiness was pressed into frequent service to sell whichever technological wizardry Sega was flaunting this season, but the hedgehog’s lo-fi debut still managed to make a compelling case for the Master System’s own austere assemblage of chips.

Featuring gleaming design, an expansive soundtrack, and a solid succession of levels that weren’t afraid to divert from the Genesis formula, the game offers plenty of challenges, variety, and admirable replay value. And it really did go pretty damn fast, at least after you picked up the game’s sole pair of Speed Shoes.
