Sonic 1 sold the best, so I imagine it was that one, even if 2, 3, &K, and 3&K are better.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was the game that people had to buy in case it was not packed-in and it offered two player split screen gameplay. It's not the best game either, but some people list it as such, which speaks for its popularity.

Wait, are we voting favorite or what we thought was most popular?
I'm very used to hearing about sonic 2, almost always praise at its basic improvements.
I hear great things about later releases, but I think it's usually just discussion more than anything about the history of the third sonic game.
My favorite maybe spinball for just some laid back gaming

I don't know, because I've only seen internet opinion, which is 2. 1 was the most successful, so you'd have to believe the one most people actually had was the most popular.

3 & Knuckles is my personal favorite. You can say what you want about how other games compare to the individual halves, but once you put them together, I truly believe there isn't a better platformer in the whole of the pixel cartridge era. I mean, what else gives you 3 distinctively different characters, with their own unique abilities that help them find secrets and alternate paths that the others aren't as likely to come across? Massive sprawling stages, 5 super modes, hidden final boss for a true ending(Sonic only), and it even has a save feature if you don't have an afternoon to spare.
