Yes, there's actually a bunch of Sonic games (opens in new tab) on Steam. They're easy to miss in the piles of other action games, but 2011's Sonic Generations deserves special notice for its thriving mod community. That's right, mods and Sonic is a thing, a pair as expected as hedgehogs and racing. The latest user-generated triumph is the Unleashed Project (opens in new tab) , a massive port of some of the daytime (read: good) levels from the console-only Sonic Unleashed.

The added Unleashed zones stick to the classic Sonic setup of racing blindingly fast along courses while collecting rings, and they thankfully leave behind the horrible Werehog segments and tedious medal collections. As a bonus, everything looks gorgeous on the PC thanks to high-definition textures and an "unleashed" framerate. (I'll get my coat.)

Spin-roll over to Mod DB (opens in new tab) for a lengthy FAQ on what you'll get on downloading the Unleashed Project.
