Today is the 21st anniversary of the release of Sonic the Hedgehog on the SEGA genesis; but more importantly, the birth of a Video Game icon. Sonic is my favorite Video Game character. One of the first games i played was STH (1991)! I was captivated from the title screen. But Sonic attracts fans not just from video games; Comics, shows, merchandise, and even movies make Sonic everyone’s favorite hedgehog. Sure Sonic has had some lows, but he got himself up and moved on. And we stood by to support him.

Happy Birthday Sonic! May you always be way past cool!
