The Essential 100, No. 35: Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog creator Yuji Naka may have read The Tortoise and the Hare, but he sure as hell didn't pay any attention to it. Naka and his team at Sega shrugged off the lessons of Aesop's parable, electing instead to view the rabbit as a source of inspiration. What if slow and steady didn't win the race? Perhaps the fable had it wrong; what if the race to the top of the platform mascot mountain could be won through raw, unadulterated speed? Well, that theory was certainly put to the test when Sega pushed all of their chips towards a blue hedgehog named Sonic. (Nintendo DS, PC, PS3, PSP, Retro, Sonic the Hedgehog, Wii, Xbox 360)
