Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (16-bit)

From Sonic Retro

Page Title

I think the page title should be "Sonic the Hedgehog 2", without the "16-bit", because there doesn't seem much point to making "Sonic the Hedgehog 2" a redirect. At the very least, "Sonic the Hedgehog 2" should be a disambiguation page. - Hivebrain 19:42, 26 August 2006 (CDT)

I think the pages should at least have the (16-bit) and (8-bit) monikers, for clarity/accuracy's sake; however, "Sonic the Hedgehog 2" and "Sonic 2" almost ALWAYS refer to the 16-bit version; I guess that links done with those names could be piped to have the 16-bit address and have those two be disambiguations? ETA: Perhaps not. Over 100 pages link to "Sonic the Hedgehog 2." --Scarred Sun 19:50, 26 August 2006 (CDT)
I also think it should be called "Sonic the Hedgehog 2", because it doesn't have an 8-bit article, so putting "16-bit" wouldn't make sense. I'm agreeing with Hivebrain. If it is the only Sonic 2 article, then change the page name! 24.121.73.22 My Talk Page 23:42, 9 September 2006 (CDT)
That's incorrect, though: there IS Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (8-bit). --Scarred Sun 02:11, 10 September 2006 (CDT)
NOW there is. Before, there WASN'T. 24.121.73.22 My Talk Page 02:41, 10 September 2006 (CDT)
...what? It's been there, according to the History file, since September 2004. -Scarred Sun 03:43, 10 September 2006 (CDT)

I went there right when you sent me the first message on my talk page. It wasn't there. 24.121.73.22 My Talk Page 17:11, 10 September 2006 (CDT)

What if the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 page had 16-bit by default but kept a disambig on top and categories saying 16-bit? That's pretty agreeable. - Scarred Sun 23:26, 10 September 2006 (CDT)

Honestly, does it really matter if "16-bit" is in the title. I think it should remain, because when most people talk about Sonic the Hedgehog 2 they are referring to the version on SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive. The kind of processor the game runs on should only be listed in the title of the 8-bit version.-The Opinionated 11:34, 7 June 2012 (CDT)

The last time anyone cared was 5.75 years ago.
