Sonic is cool but I find him too fast. Instead, I've always preferred Mario. Nonetheless, as mentioned in another thread, I did enjoy Sonic Spinball - maybe cause the fast nature of Sonic goes with pinball.
I really like the sonic games even though it might old already. The graphics and sounds of the game makes me feel great and amaze to it. It is really nice to see its wonderful graphics and visual effects.
I think it's a speedster character. And it is meant to work like that. It's not meant for mario competitor though. Considering his level of challenges and the issues. You can see that he has his own genre.
Back in the day when men were kids, I pretty much enjoyed playing Mario because it was among the best game back then. The background song of the game was really fun at the time, I can still remember singing it off heart then. It was a good game for kids.
Those were good old arcade days.And tech was not much advanced. And things were going good enough in many ways. As you can see that was indeed a good thing in many ways. Mario games developed and came a long way from that phase.
