For the free copy of Sonic The Hedgehog 2, simple head to the Steam page and claim it. You know what's great about it? It's part of the SEGA Mega Drive and Genesis Classics which has Linux support and it has the ROM file too. Actually, all games in that full collection should have the legal ROM files for you to enjoy and the whole collection is on a big sale!
SEGA actually has something of a special place in my heart. When I was young and in hospital, back when the SEGA Mega Drive console was still quite new, I remember a bunch of the nurses looking after me wheeling in a TV with one hooked up to it and a copy of Sonic the Hedgehog - good times. Sonic sure did help me get through a tough time. I ended up actually getting the console eventually too, along with titles like Sonic The Hedgehog 1 / 2 and more. Was such a great device.
