Let's Talk About Sonic The Hedgehog

by Kyle Hilliard on Nov 25, 2012 at 12:47 PM

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?
