Top 10 Things Sega Wants You to Forget

Similar to their rival Nintendo, Sega has had its moments that left fans scratching their heads or feeling a tinge of disappointment. Whether it's a game that failed to live up to expectations or a controversial incident that sparked public outrage, these are the moments that Sega would most likely want to sweep under the rug.
The Top Ten
1 Sonic 2006

How do you celebrate Sonic's 15th Anniversary? The answer is not this - anything but this. It's considered one of the worst games ever made, and people are right for many reasons. A lot of them have to do with it being broken, filled with glitches, and plagued by too many loading times, along with many other problems that nearly killed the Sonic franchise. It's definitely something Sega would like you to forget.

2 Sonic Boom Being the Worst Selling Sonic Game

Just when it seemed the Sonic franchise couldn't sink any lower, this happened, making Sonic Boom the worst-selling Sonic game ever made.

Oh, we didn't forget, Sega! We definitely didn't forget this piece of trash!

3 The Sega Saturn Was a Commercial Failure

Outside of Japan, it was actually the best-selling Sega console in Japan.

4 The Sega Saturn Died with Out a Real Sonic Game
5 The Night Trap Controversy

Along with other games of the time, Night Trap caused a huge controversy for its depiction of violence against women and other issues. The game was even pulled from stores.

Of all the YouTube video game videos I have watched, I have never heard of this. They must have done a pretty good job…

6 The Dreamcast's Short Life Span

Despite being a really great system with many excellent games, the Dreamcast was short-lived due to the arrival of the PlayStation 2 and the upcoming Xbox and GameCube. The Dreamcast became an afterthought and, sadly, would be the last Sega console.

7 The Number of Bad Sonic Games

While Mario continues to succeed with each new system, Sonic has unfortunately found himself in a series of embarrassing, poorly-made Sonic games. These include Sonic Labyrinth, Sonic Unleashed, Sonic R, Sonic 3D Blast, Sonic Fighters, Sonic and the Black Knight, Sonic Shuffle, Sonic Free Riders, Sonic Drift, and more.

8 Shadow the Hedgehog

Sega obviously had no idea what to do with this game. It didn't help that it allowed players to fire guns at enemies. Guns have no place in a Sonic game.

It also doesn't help that the character himself is overrated and steals the spotlight from Tails or other characters more deserving of praise.

Well, on the bright side, at least Sonic wasn't the one using guns, as was originally requested.

9 Batman Was a Boss in Revenge of Shinobi

I still can't believe they actually went to Marvel and got the rights to Spider-Man.

10 The Sega vs Nintendo Commercials

Even though Nintendo didn't really try to roast Sega through commercials, ironically, there was one commercial with a pop quiz about Super Mario All-Stars. The game contained four titles in one cartridge, featuring the seal of quality. The Sega fan taking the test failed miserably and couldn't remember his lines.

Wake up, Nintendo! You know that the Super NES is far superior in graphics and sound.

The Contenders
11 Sonic Mania
12 Sonic Free Riders

It would probably be the best Riders game if it actually used controllers instead of the Kinect.

13 Sonic R
14 Sonic Adventure 2
15 Taking Down Streets of Rage Fan Remake
16 Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I
17 Bayonetta
18 Sonic 3D Blast
19 Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by SEGA, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.
