It's time for another round of Pick One! This week, to celebrate Sonic The Hedgehog's 30th anniversary, we thought we'd take a look back at the history of the series on Xbox, which includes a lot of ports of older titles!
The original games are included in this lineup, then, but Sonic didn't actually make his debut on Xbox until 2003's Sonic Heroes, and the most recent release was 2019's Team Sonic Racing. So, which of these titles is your favourite?
Remember, you can only pick one!
Let's take a look at some of the highlights of what we're working with:
