Sonic the Hedgehog (Master System) -- original 8-bit Sonic platformer.
Is there any value to this version? The Genesis version came out first, which meant as a kid I never even considered that the SMS port would be worth playing.
I've only played it for a few minutes on an emulator, but I enjoyed what I played enough to purchase the game. Obviously it's nowhere near as good as the Genesis games, but it's a very well designed platformer. The developers realized that they couldn't replicate the speed that made the Genesis games so iconic, so rather than an epic fail the developers wisely ditched Sonic's speed in favour of something similar to the NES Mario games.
