Timeless or Trash: Sonic The Hedgehog

Before the 16-bit wars between Sega and Nintendo, the former struggled to find a mascot to rival The Big N’s Mario. Sega tried to compete with the NES with the Master System, using Alex Kidd as their go-to mascot. The Alex Kidd games were good, but the character didn’t catch on. At the end of the Master System’s life cycle, it released Sonic The Hedgehog. Sega then decided to get a two-year jump on Nintendo’s SNES by releasing the Sega Genesis, with an updated version of Sonic The Hedgehog. Sonic and the Genesis’ popularity exploded, and thus the 16-bit wars began. (Retro)

2D is timeless.. 3D is trash

Sonic Generations begs to differ. As do the Adventure games.

Dont forget Sonic colors. And it looks like Sonic Lost world is gonna be good to. So far it looks like 3D sonic is hitting its stride.

generations was OK.. The sonic adventures were OK as well.. Not timeless.. But i guess not trash either.. I think once the adventure series came out, they started putting all these stupid characters in it & it went downhill.. 2D versions were the best & the rest are forgettable

Good because it laid the groundwork for the 2D Sonics, but it has always been too difficult for me so I never actually beat it. Guess I suck?
