http://www.metafilter.com/104850/Over-70-Billion-Gold-Rings-Served wrote:Twenty years ago today, the gaming world saw the launch of a truly landmark title: Sonic the Hedgehog. Developed as a vehicle for a new Sega mascot, the fluid, vibrant, cheery-tuned wonderland swiftly became the company's flagship product, inspiring over the ensuing decades an increasingly convoluted universe of TV shows, comic books, and dozens of games on a variety of systems (all documented in this frighteningly comprehensive TVTropes portal). And while in recent years the series has turned out more and more mediocre 3D and RPG efforts, the original games remain crown jewels of the 16-bit era. So why not kick off this anniversary by replaying the titles that started it all for free in your browser: Sonic the Hedgehog (1991),Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (1992), Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (1994), Sonic & Knuckles(1994). Or click inside for music, remakes, and other fun stuff!

Music
Playable archives of the original music from every game in the series
Nearly four hours of remixed tracks in many genres from the pros at OCRemix.org
An orchestral medley from travelling concert series Video Games Live
CarrotAdventure's snazzy "Spin Dash" remix on Mefi Music
Fun fact: after years of speculation, the composer of the catchy Sonic 3 soundtrack was eventually confirmed to be none other than Michael Jackson (listen and compare).

Emulators and Fan Remakes
More Java-emulated Sonic titles for Genesis, Game Gear, and Master System, courtesy of TheSmartAss.info (previously)
The visually stunning Sonic Fan Remix (PC demo; Mac demo; previously)
Open Sonic, a faithful, cross-platform, open-source adaptation

Bonus: Melt your cares away with docfuture's ultra-chill playthrough of the original game, discussed previously (YouTube version: part 1, part 2). He also plays through Sonic 2: Special Edition on his LetsPlay page.

Ism's in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an -ism, he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon, "I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me."--Ferris Bueller, 1986
