Sonic The Hedgehog 3 Sonic The Hedgehog 3 released in North America on February 2, 1994, exactly 28 years ago. The Sonic 3 cartridge was purchased by over 1.02 million people in the United States. If you include Sonic and Knuckles, Sonic 3 was the 4th most successful SEGA Genesis game.  Of the original 3 games,  this was definitely my favorite entry in the series.

1994 Flashback: Tetris & Dr. Mario Released #SNES

26 years ago on December 30, 1994, the North American SNES version of #Tetris & Dr. Mario hit shelves. Seems like only yesterday.  Developed by Intelligent Systems and published by Nintendo on the SNES, the puzzle compilation saw success selling 6 million + copies and receiving mostly favorable reviews.  I have fond memories of this game particularly the Multiplayer options. Definitely one of the top 25 greatest SNES cartridges.
