Keep in mind guys that there are some people who still don't have internet in this world, so this compilation is probably a good alternative. There's also those who refuse to take part in any kind of piracy as well.
The issue I have with all of these collections is, if you were to collect every single one, you'd have way too many duplicates of numerous titles (namely Sonic the Hedgehog 1). Sega keeps trying to milk the cow with collections. Yes, one or two is fine for different franchises/genres, but Sega seems to keep releasing one or two a YEAR. It doesn't help that most of these build-up on previous collections, bringing up the '3rd Pokemon Game Problem' (IE - wait until the improved version is made instead of buying the initial release).
Paramount did this with the Star Trek franchise, to an extent, but is controlled and executed a lot better than Sega does with their catalogue of games. They love to milk out each series and movie onto any new film format (VHS, VHD, Betamax, CED, LaserDisc, DVD, UMD, HD DVD and Blu-Ray to be exact). However, they very rarely re-release a title on the same format, except for the Fan Collective DVD's. I will note, however, that if you buy Star Trek DVDs/Blu-Rays from a retailer, they are pricey as hell, and the collections, deemed to be the best of the crop, are a lot cheaper. Paramount knows how to control the flow of milk, which Sega cannot.
