GamesRadar - Next year will see Sonic's 25th anniversary come and go. A quarter of a century is a long time and surely he must be getting tired. After all, he's been running pretty much non-stop since 1991. His knees must be agony. He must have collected more rings than there are grains of sand on Emerald Coast's beach. Indeed, the certainty of this fatigue really hit home when I saw a plushie of Sonic in a shop window. He looked absolutely defeated.
