Sonic turning 20?


This is the type of stuff that makes me feel old. I remember when Sonic first came out! In fact, I remember when Sonic 2, 3 and & Knuckles came out. Groundhog’s Day will always remind me of when Sonic 3 came out and Sega unofficially renamed the day Hedgehog Day.

Back over the summer I spoke in depth of my feelings on Sonic and the (then upcoming) Sonic the Hedgehog 4 game that I gave up on, seeing that they are bringing the stupid game out in episodes and aren’t even selling it on the Nintendo Wii console. Good job Sega! But I digress. I still love Sonic, even if I feel as if I like his older version better then the skinny version that they now have of his.
