Since we had a fun thread about how Sonic CD has increasingly become a target for nitpick-y criticism, I thought I'd start one for the only game that's even more nitpicked than Sonic CD - that is, Sonic 1. I mean, it only has one good level, the rest is just a crappy Mario knockoff that punishes you for going fast! Why on EARTH do people like this game? How did it sell over 20 million copies? It's OBVIOUSLY the worst game ever. In all seriousness though, my main problems with this game are how inconsistent the difficulty level is and how you get no reward for collecting all the emeralds. Otherwise it's OK and a fine start for the franchise.
