Just think about what would the industry would be like without this game
Sega would have gone third party alot earlier
Resulting in Nintendo having a monopoly on the industry
Nintendo would have never partnered with Sony as there would be reason to make SNES CD to rival the Sega CD
Thus, Sony would never have entered the industry
Anyone competition such as Microsoft with the Xbox would probably bomb due to Nintendo have all the third parties locked up+Nintendo exclusives

I thought this game had sold nearly 15 millions. Anyways, Genesis Trilogy are one of the best game of all times!

the numbers are from 1995, the ending of the mega drive support from sega, but the game sales up to 1998, was bundled with genesis/mega drive consoles. 15 m is right, i think, and 10 milionfor sonic 2.
