Why Sonic Is Better Than Mario

It’s an age old battle and one which divides generations, ruins relationships and destroys friendship. I am of course referring the probably the longest standing battle in video games, who’s better? Sonic or Mario?

Mario is clearly better than Sonic.

I am 35 years old and used to argue about this in school, oh and Sonic is still the best.

Haha yeah, the age old argument.

I always supported Sonic! YEARS ago I remember a gaming magazine cover featuring Mario and Sonic having an arm wrestle. If the quality of the games in the years to follow is anything to go by, the result would be that Sonic would now be a paraplegic.

It's a shame though; I still want Sonic to win. In my opinion, there has yet to be a Sonic game that can even rival Super Mario 64 let alone Mario's subsequent and equally impressive affairs.

Still- a true fan never loses hope. You can do it Sonic! One day.....maybe....

Mario still has good videogames coming out under his name. Sonic doesn't.

The end.

Sonic Generations and Sonic Colours would like a word. They were both brilliant and highly praised recent Sonic games. Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing was also very well received.

I just hope that Sega can keep him on the current upward trend.

Brilliant? Far from it, my friend. They were... kind of fun. But not that good. Even the 2D parts in Sonic Generations had strange physics, the jump was off and the spin dash was terrible (and don't even get me started on the final boss).

As a character, Sonic will always be cooler than Mario. I was in Japan for three weeks in August and I returned with some Sonic stuff, but no Mario stuff. Still, we have to face reality and admit that Sonic games nowadays are just not that good. Even the ones considered the best games are very flawed.

I'm just glad the author of this story actually used the word "Than" correctly :) and on topic....Sonic is clearly way cooler than Mr. Italian Plumber will ever be. SEGA!!!!

You mean the same Sonic that's currently sleeping on Mario's couch?

I am a Nintendo fanboy until my last breath, but we settled this one about a decade ago. The bottom line is that the Super Mario franchise was strong enough to carry Nintendo through their "hard times/ F* ups*. Sonic couldn't do the same for Sega.

That's more of a Nintendo is better than Sega argument than a Mario is better than Sonic one. The article talks more about the character instead of the game series.
- Sonic Fanboy, Sega pessimist

no one is better than the italian plumber who was made by japanese guys who could speak english and looks like a mexican.

Mario must have more hair on his back than Ron Jeremy...

DarkHeroZX2282d ago

Idk last time I checked sonic was fighting beings that could destroy the universe.

One of them made a smooth transition from 2D to 3D and back again, while the other...not so much.
