    It was 20yrs ago that SEGA unleashed their mascot Sonic on the world. Those of us who experienced Sonic the Hedgehog when it was first released were quickly drawn into school yard arguments over who would whip the others butt (Mario vs. Sonic). Now 20 years later Sonic has been featured in many games, a cartoon series, and has been merchandised into an iconic character recognized by kids of all ages. Happy Birthday Sonic!

    Quake also turned 15 yesterday. It seems to be a month of birthdays for iconic franchises.

    Hopefully you'll start making some non-shit games, Sonic. Sonic Colors was good, keep it on track.

    who would have though a mere hedgehog would become so famous (and strangely a blue one). the concept of sonic has never been replicated by any game (as far as my knowledge goes) and probably no one will want to challenge it.
