Sonic

The latter half of Nintendo’s 2020 calendar may have focused on another video gaming titan’s birthday, but Sonic the Hedgehog’s 30th anniversary is fast approaching. SEGA celebrates its 60th anniversary this year — as well as the Game Gear’s 30th — and has big plans in the works for next year to commemorate three decades of the blue hedgehog’s running, spin-dashing and generally being a thorn in Robotnik’s ample sides.

With that in mind, we thought it was about time to give the hedgehog a little of 2020’s spotlight. Sonic has an inarguably patchier 3D back catalogue compared to Super Mario, he’s still managed to score plenty of hits over the years, with some real 3D gems to his name.

Similar to our other reader-ranked polls, we’re asking you lovely lot to rate every 3D Sonic platformer you’ve played from the list below. We’ve included all the 3D games that have released on Nintendo systems (we’ll look at the 2D and side-scrolling games another time). We’re discounting spin-offs because 1) we’d be here all day, and 2) nobody wants to think about Shadow the Hedgehog again, right?

Registered Nintendo Life users can click on the stars below and rate the games out of 10. Much like our Top 50 platform polls, the resulting ranking (which we’ll publish soon) is created from those fluid NL User Ratings and is therefore subject to change. If you’ve previously rated these games in our database, thank you! If not, you can add your score to the game at any time, present or future, and it will still count and potentially influence the ranking, even after publication.

Gotta rate fast! Thanks for rating your favourites. We’ll be revealing the results in the near future, but remember: much like our platform Top 50s, the list will be fluid, so even if you miss out on voting before the results are revealed, you can still influence the ranking after publication.

Before you go...

Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation? How far should politicians be allowed to intervene in court cases? To monitor these issues as closely as we have in the past we need your support, so please consider donating to The Climax News Room.
