Relating to a conversation I had recently, regarding that poor maligned Sonic hedgehog.
Sonic 2 remains simply one of the greatest games ever, up there with other defining classics such as Doom as games which STILL have unique qualities to them no other game can rival even after 20 years.
But… well, you probably know the sad story. I was told he was now forever an icon for furries, manbabies and lax standards in corporate games development. Somehow, I couldn’t argue against it.
