From 1991 to 1994, Sonic the Hedgehog was untouchable. Every game that Sega released received high scores and became best sellers. He was so dominant that it wasn’t hard to believe that the blue blur would eventually topple Nintendo’s Mario as the most popular video game mascot.
Then, after the award-winning Sonic & Knuckles, Sega officially lost its mind. The publisher, clearly under the impression that its franchise hero needed to evolve, cast him in a series of average to downright awful games. In addition, it committed unforgettable sins by releasing weird spin-offs that only served to mar a formerly pristine franchise.
On that note, here are the worst decisions in Sonic the Hedgehog’s troubled history.
