2 Nights Into Dreams

Set in a world where all dreams take place. The dream world has two areas: Nightopia and Nightmare. The game was inspired by Cirque de Soleil's show Mystère. When making the game, Sega researched dreams, REM sleep, and psychologists like Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. The game received universal acclaim. - ShuhBanggg

3 Skies of Arcadia

Arguably one of the best Sega games ever made. Centers around air pirates, floating islands, and pirate galleons that fly. - ShuhBanggg

4 Super Monkey Ball

I prefer the sequel. - DapperPickle

A classic. - ShuhBanggg

5 Shinobi

Critically acclaimed. A 3D game starring a ninja dressed in a black garb and mystical red cape. The cape stretches back as you run. - ShuhBanggg

6 Jet Set Radio

A cell-shaded game where you skate around and spray-paint graffiti on walls while escaping riot police. Includes both original and licensed music that combines genres like J-pop and hip hop. The game was widely acclaimed and received awards. - ShuhBanggg

7 Valkyria Chronicles

A dieselpunk setting based on WWII-era Europe. It's a military tactical game and was inspired by Band of Brothers and Saving Private Ryan. The game's visuals resemble pencil-drawn paintings in motion, and it has genuinely unique gameplay not found in any other game. It won several awards and inspired multiple sequels and manga titles and even an anime series. The game and its sequels have a cult following. - ShuhBanggg

8 Alex Kidd in Miracle World

Critically acclaimed. A colorful platform game. For a brief time, Alex Kidd was Sega's unofficial mascot. - ShuhBanggg

9 Ecco the Dolphin

yes!

Became a bestseller upon release. - ShuhBanggg

10 Super Monkey Ball 2

The Contenders

11 Vectorman

Essentially Wall-E. Humanity has polluted the earth so badly that it evacuated the planet and left robots to clean up the toxins, wastes, and trash. The game's main character is Vectorman, a humble robot made entirely of lime-green orbs. He is programmed to dispose toxic sludge by taking it into space and discharging it into the sun. The game received universal acclaim. Its gameplay is similar to Donkey Kong Country, but with hand-blasters and the ability to transform using power-ups. - ShuhBanggg

12 F-Zero GX

Forget What I Said About F-Zero GX

I Know Sonic Games Have The Great Soundtracks But This Soundtrack is Good

Both This Game and The Yakuza Series Has Good/Great Music Because Of Hidenori Shoji

This Captain Falcon game was developed by SEGA. In fact, the playable racer Billy has the character AiAi from Super Monkey Ball on his belt buckle. - ShuhBanggg

13 Captain America: Super Soldier

I know it looks and sounds like trash bin material, but it really is surprisingly quite good. It's essentially a poor man's Arkham Asylum. It's even voiced by the main movie's cast, including Hayley Atwell and Chris Evans. - ShuhBanggg

14 Bayonetta

My favourite video game of all time - iliekpiez

Received critical acclaim. - ShuhBanggg

15 Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing
16 Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games

Developed by Sega. (Was also published by Sega in regions outside of Japan.) - ShuhBanggg

17 Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram
18 Nights: Journey Into Dreams
19 Samba de Amigo

A really fun game, and I believe it received very positive reviews. - ShuhBanggg

20 Sonic Generations
21 Vanquish

A hybrid between a 3rd person shooter and a racing game. The game stars Sam Gideon, a soldier equipped with special white tactical armor. - ShuhBanggg

22 Clockwork Knight

Fun little platformer featuring a heroic toy knight named Sir Pepper. - ShuhBanggg

23 Shenmue

Not only best Sega games, but best game ever made.

Not only one of the most expensive games ever made at the time, but considered one of the best video games ever made. The game is an open world with a hyper-interactive environment and extreme level of detail. The game runs completely by a clock. Throughout the cycling night and day, characters have diverse routines and schedules they follow, shops open and close, buses follow specific timed routes, and everyone can be interacted with. The game is unprecedented (especially at the time), revolutionary, and has a cult following. - ShuhBanggg

24 Alien: Isolation

What!? I don't knew it is made by SEGA!

25 Ristar

A fun little platformer, along the lines of Super Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog. The main character is a shooting star named Ristar who sets out to stop a space pirate. - ShuhBanggg

26 Sonic Colors

Cubot was pretty funny

27 Penguin Land Penguin Land

Cute puzzle platformer where you play as a penguin and try to avoid polar bears. - ShuhBanggg

28 Sonic & Knuckles
29 Astral

The graphics are completely hand-drawn. The game is set in a mythological world centered around jewels and gemstones. Its main character is Astral, a boy created by a goddess from a single red jewel. Astral has a bird companion, and in cooperative mode, the second player plays as the bird. The plot begins with Astral being imprisoned on the moon, but he escapes to save a girl he loves. Overall, the game was widely praised, but critics agreed the game was too short. - ShuhBanggg

30 Bugs Bunny in Double Trouble
31 Shadow the Hedgehog

Didn't do very well critically, but I included it as a guilty pleasure. - ShuhBanggg

Why does this hedgehog have weaponry? - DapperPickle

Look! I'm edgy! LOOOK! - iliekpiez

32 Dragon Force

Critically acclaimed. Control an army and use strategy to lead it to victory. The pixel sprite work is very good too. - ShuhBanggg

33 Crazy Taxi

Was a huge bestseller upon release. - ShuhBanggg

34 Golden Axe
35 Samurai Jack: The Shadow of Aku
36 Dinosaur King
37 Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games
38 Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3
39 Panzer Dragoon

Fly around as a dragon rider, and use your dragon to shoot fire at targets and enemies. A really fun game. - ShuhBanggg

40 Puyo Puyo Tetris
41 Sega Bass Fishing
42 The Conduit
43 Beyond Oasis

This is what it would look like if Aladdin was made into a Zelda game. - ShuhBanggg

44 Sonic Heroes
45 Fantasy Star Fantasy Star

Received critical acclaim, and was revolutionary because it was one of the first RPGs for consoles. The game is sci-fi and takes place on four planets: Palma, a fertile agricultural world; Motavia, a desert planet; Dezoris, an ice planet; and Rykros, a dark world with planetary rings. - ShuhBanggg

46 Sonic Mania Sonic Mania
47 Bug! Bug!

A goofy platformer, and one of the first 3D platformers ever. Received praise for its graphics and colorful visuals. - ShuhBanggg
