What's Your Favourite Sega Franchise

So which one is you favourite?

No argument that they are all classics but which one has the most appeal to you and why?

I would say Streets of Rage, many hours were spent playing those games.

Despite some absolute garbage for modern consoles, I still had to go with Sonic. The 16-bit Sonic games are still amazing.

This was a real hard one, but i went for Sonic in the end just ahead of SOR. Purely based on the fact there has been a lot more Sonic games made and although there has been some dodgy games here and there the majority have been good especially Sonic 1,2,3,Adventure 1&2 and Generations. The fact that Sega have never actually made another SOR game amazes me, especially with the current rise of retro style games on IOS, Android and XBLA.

I loved the Streets of Rage games but i had to go for Shinobi due to the sheer amount of time I spent on Shinobi in the arcade and revenge of Shinobi  on the Megadrive.

Toe Jam and Earl.  Probably the first game that introduced me to buckets of humour.  Loveable characters, crazy animation and some funky music.  8)

I love the original one, I always wished they had done more games like the first one. A Saturn version whould have been amazing.

That's why I didn't consider it because there are only 2 games  ;D
