As the days go by and the technology develops more and more, we realize how amazing some of the classic retro games were. Sega is known as one of the biggest companies that has released some of the biggest games in the history of PC gaming, and that’s why I decided to put together some of the most popular Sega games ever made.
Among the most notable games released by Sega are Sonic the Hedgehog, Gunstar Heroes, Mortal Kombat, and Streets of Rage. Sega’s Sonic game series won multiple awards, including Best Platform at GamingXP’s Best of Gamescom 2011.
Here’s a quick review of some of the most notable and popular Sega games of all time:
Sonic the Hedgehog – Sonic the Hedgehog is a video game created by Yuji Naka and developed and owned by Sega. The franchise centers around a series of speed-based platformers and the star of the series is the blue hedgehog named Conic, whose life is often interrupted by the evil Doctor Eggman. Usually Sonic and some of his friends (friends like Talis, Amy, and Knuckles) try to stop Eggman and thwart any of his plans for world domination. The first game in the series was published in 1991 and gained great popularity.
Gunstar Heroes – Gunstar Heroes was released in 1993. It is a run-and-shoot video game that was developed by Treasure and published by Sega. Treasure’s debut game was originally released on the Sega Mega Drive / Genesis in the 90s and was later transferred to Game Gear by M2. In 2006 it was released as part of Gunstar Heroes: Treasire Box Collection for PlayStation 2. The game itself gained astonishing popularity during the 1990s and is still famous today.
Mortal Kombat – Mortal Kombat is one of the most famous names in the gaming industry and to this day it is still considered one of the most beloved video games ever made. It was originally developed by the Midway Games studio in Chicago in 1992 and is currently owned by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. The Mortal Kombat series is known for its high levels of violence and gory scenes, including its deaths (finishing moves that require a sequence of button inputs to perform). Currently you can find Mortal Kombat X in the App Store and Play Store, which is a modern version that has been adapted to mobile devices.
Sega is still known as one of the largest companies in the field of games, and many of its games are very popular today. It is responsible for some of the greatest classics in video games and as such is a major milestone in the gaming industry.
