Alright, I think it goes without saying that I’m a *major* Sonic The Hedgehog fan. So, it’s about time there’s a Sonic thread on Kinmunity. The first thing I want to talk about are Sega's announcements for the 25th anniversary of Sonic. It seems they're finally listening to fans and they've announced two new Sonic games. The first being Sonic Mania, which seems to be a continuation to the original platformer done right, rather than the terrible "innovations" added in Sonic 4. Additionally, they've announced Project Sonic 2017 which simply looks awesome. Sonic's future is finally looking bright again, and I'm extremely excited for this. New Sonic Games Announced Sonic Mania Project Sonic 2017* *despite appearance of classic sonic in the video, it is confirmed by Sega that this is not related to Sonic Generations. So, in addition to discussing the future of Sonic, I think this is a great thread for listing our favorite games.
