Video game icon Sonic first sped into our lives on June 23, 1991 on the Sega Genesis classic ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’; and gave new meaning to platformers everywhere. Since his initial introduction he has been in at least one new game every year meaning over 20 video game appearances by our favourite blue hedgehog. In addition to that, Sonic has also appeared in 4 different animated series as well as at least 2 animated films.
Sonic has been voted as among the most iconic and well known video game characters of all time, and he deserves the nomination having been around for as long as I’ve been gaming.
Happy Birthday to you Sonic, next year you’ll be able to drink in the US! But we’ll toast you here in Canada all the same!
We’ve enjoyed 20 years of your antics, and hopefully you’ll be back for more.
