B4HD's James Batchelor writes: Obviously, I’m not such a caveman that I’ve never played the original Sonic the Hedgehog. When I was first discovering what these strange distractions called ‘video games’, I used to play a level or two while at a friend’s house, but being only four or five years old meant we were unable to get past Marble Arch, Zone 1.
Being the Nintendo fanboy that I was, I didn’t really play any of the sequels either. I never had a Dreamcast so the much-lauded Sonic Adventure games were never accessible to me. In fact, until recently, my most comprehensive experience of a Sonic game was 2008’s Sonic Unleashed. I know. I can hear you eyes rolling from here.
