"Sucked" is a little harsh. Grew up with the little blue guy!

Sega of Japan sucked not Sonic nor Sega of America

I grew up with him too...getting stomped by Mario. Sonic does suck. Lol

jznrpg1342d ago

The first 2 were fun , but I lost interest after that. I wouldnt say those sucked at all, I cant speak for the other entries though.

If you compare them to their contemporaries... well.. the comparison isn't one they stand up to. Subjectively. They were, and will forever be the poor mans answer to Mario. Sonic makes LBP controls seem responsive and accurate.

hallsguitar1342d ago

Once you learned the levels you could call the controls good. I will agree with that.

WeAreLegion1341d ago

LBP controls are responsive and accurate. You just don't like the gravity.

I love Sonic, Sonic 2, Sonic CD, Sonic 3 and Sonic 3 and Knukles.
Hell, Sonic was so cool at one point that even Mickael Jackson ended up making music for the blue hedgehog.

shane_gc1342d ago

I grew up playing the crap out of them. Thought Knuckles was the coolest. Have you tried going back to them?

BG115791342d ago (Edited 1342d ago )

I still own the games and my genesis. But I usually play in transportations with an emulator on my PSP.

By the way, if you liked Sonic games you should try Freedom Planet. It's a good plateformer. It plays like Sparkster, but it definitely has a Sonic vibe to it.

Sonic does not suck Sonic 1-3 and Knuckles were superior platformers over the OLD Mario Games

Sonic Adventure series was also good as was Sonic Generations and Colors

People just like to hate on Sonic because of the bad games but never give credit for the GOOD games he has

shane_gc1342d ago

I find that statement to be irreconcilable with reality. To say that any Sonic game was structurally more sound than a Mario game of the same era is beyond me. The craftsmanship is on another level in my eyes.

dcj05241342d ago (Edited 1342d ago )

Sonic Colors is better than most Mario games in my opinion. And I had way more fun in sonic 2 than any NES/SNES Mario.

"Sonic 1-3 and Knuckles were superior platformers over the OLD Mario Games"

*Dies of laughter*

Maybe if you are only ten years old, you would have that perception.
