Nintendo Land.

I have never even played a Wii U, but Wii Sports is just a tech demo. It's close to unplayable today and Wii Sports Resort is almost strictly better.

In response to those of you wanting non-Nintendo game mashups:

I have in fact done a few competitions between two games that weren't Nintendo franchises, but they get far fewer votes, considering not as many people on this site have played them. Even for the much more niche Nintendo titles, the votes are fairly low. I'm just doing the best I can to try and appeal to everyone's interest here, so that the community can vote as a whole.

I'd be happy to take suggestions, but it has to reach a point where we can't just throw in two obscure games that perhaps a great amount of other people on this site have not played.

This thread started out with games that have often been compared and ones that are usually well regarded by critics. So I thought it would be interesting to see which would fair with the community on here. Of course there's those games that everyone here has likely played or knows about, because they're popular. It's because they're popular, that it leads to a much better topic of discussion.

It's the mashups where everyone gets into the discussion and really puts forth their opinion and what they think in regards to the games at hand, when things get the most interesting; and when I personally think this thread is at its highest points. In order for that to happen, everyone needs to be appealed to so that everyone can get involved and express their views.

I believe in make believe~

This is a close one but I'd go with Megaman. I do think Sonic Colors and Generations (and to a lesser extent the Adventures games, at least when they first came out) are some of the best example of transitioning a game from 2D to 3D, but there was so much difficulty making that work for so many games between them. Now I love Megaman Legends, but it's not really much of a "Megaman" game which is why this was difficult for me to decide. It was not an evolution of Megaman as much as a new game they made that just happened to have Megaman in it. But Sonic has definitely had more games that have not aged the best so...yeah.

I hate Sonic. I hate him. I personally think of majority of the first games were awful. Yet Sonic Colors was fun (albeit not amazing) and Sonic Generation is one of the most fun games I've ever played. I prefer Megaman about 100000x more but I'm gonna have to give my vote to Sonic. It's evolved better but Megaman has the better aging games.

Mega Man. It's more consistent in its quality. Meanwhile, Sonic is completely all over the place, with quality all over the place and with games that have not aged well.

From the standpoint of which has evolved the best, I think that would be the Sonic series. For which have aged best though, definitely Mega Man. I personally love both series to death, but for this I guess i'll vote for Sonic since I believe the games are a bit more diverse (and controversial for that matter).

Mega Man: 6

Sonic the Hedgehog: 1

It's funny. I owned the Genesis during it's hay day, remember dropping $119.99 for the severely overrated Sonic the hedgehog(I had a better time with Castle of Illusion). Beat it. I then beat the sequal, played a tiny bit of Sonic 3, got Sonic Pinball for christmas(Not the game i asked for!lol) had the first Sonic on Game gear, finished both Sonic Adventure 1 & 2 on the Dreamcast and forced myself through Sonic 4 on WiiWare. What's my stance on the the little blue speedy hedgehog? I HATE him and his little obnoxious lover Tails.lol I gave the series a chance, but when i look back all i have created are crappy gaming memories.

Mega Man 2 ,1 , X, and 9 bring back so many wonderful memories. And as of late Zero 1, Mega man & Bass and MM:Dr.Wily's Revenge. I personally hate the flow and controls of the sonic series. 2D sonic feels sloppy, and once you're blazing through those gimmicky and flashy loops while being bounced frim spring to spring you're barely in control. the Sonic Rush series is without a doubt thee' worst offender! :p I can get the same effect by watching somebody on a rollercoaster.

If anything, i still somewhat enjoy the early 90's Sonic Cartoon. ;)

Sonic can be a fun platformer, Megaman is not. It only took me MM1,2,3,9,10 to realize Megaman ain't that fun of a game.

Sonic: 2

STOP MAKING ME HAVE TO CHOOSE!!!

They both have great main series games, and I prefer the spin-off games for both series.

With Sonic, we had Spinball (shut up, I liked it), Advance (greatest trilogy ever), Rush (don't question me), and Battle (go play it, now!)

With Mega Man, we had Battle Network and StarForce.

Plus, in defense of Sonic, although the characters can be really annoying, they're also (sometimes) useful (Amy and Cream whip my butt in Battle).

I'd have to say I had much more fun with Sonic, but Mega Man certainly isn't bad (OMG THE ZERO SERIES :O)

I think the Mega Man games have aged a bit better.
However, Sonic games have 'evolved' the most.

Hmmm... Tough choice, but I'll give my vote to Mega Man.

I vote for Sonic. The series is fun, isn't afraid to try new things (even if said ideas aren't always perfect), and I find it interesting to see how the world and characters have advanced over time.

Mega Man: 10
Sonic the Hedgehog: 5

I have not voted myself in the most recent mashups, but I'm giving my vote to Sonic.

I think, although Mega Man has maintained a consistent level of being great games, the Sonic series has evolved and changed with the times - while the classic Genesis games are still really great today. The series was willing to try new things, like others have mentioned.

Mega Man: 10
Sonic the Hedgehog: 6
