The lights are on
If Wikipedia is to be believed, yesterday was the 20th anniversary of
Sonic The Hedgehog 2. Let's talk about the discolored hedgehog. Real hedgehogs are brown after all.
Are you still a fan of the red-shoed erinaceidae? I grew up in a Nintendo household myself, so I spent my elementary school days arguing in favor of a plumber who didn't spend much time plumbing. When I did get my hands on Sonic at a friends house, however, I always had a good time.
How do you feel about Sonic? Is he past his prime? Is he still a force to be reckoned with? Do you still get excited for each new release? Or do you let them pass you by like a high-speed blue blur?
Also, did you know that in New Zealand and the islands of Scotland, the hedgehog is considered a pest?

That's how I feel about him.
Old Sonic games had great music, graphics, sound effects, etc. I never really got into em though because the controls were a little sluggish
i personally love sonic
Never was a fan. To fast paced to enjoy what I was doing.
He's past his prime. He may have a decent game once in a while, but it's been a long time since I've seen a good sonic game.
I love Sonic. I used to enjoy the early 3D games, but didn't put any faith in the new ones (or even really play them). Going back to the first few 3D games, I realize they aren't great. Still love the originals, however, and am ecstatic that the new ones are pulling the series out of its slump.
Right now my love of the series is channeled into the Archie comics, which are great (and also introduced me to Mega Man).
I grew up with Sonic, and followed the games for many years, but looking at him now, I see nothing but a relic.
Honestly, Sonic games now are never any better then "OK", and im convinced thats never going to change.
I think he deserves a long break
