This rant is about a company that has brung me into the world of video games, a company that alot of people hate, so if you don't like SEGA or Sonic, please leave.
I have been a fan of Sonic the Hedgehog since I was a little boy. I don't remember exactly how old I was, but I do remember having a SEGA Dreamcast, and I had Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2. I also had a Sony PlayStation 2 and I had Sonic Heroes, Sonic Riders, Shadow the Hedgehog, and Sonic Mega Collection Plus so I could play old Sonic games. This was before I had Internet, so I didn't have stuff like Kega Fusion or Gens or other Genesis emulators, In fact, my dad was the one who introduced me to Sonic, which introduced me to video games. When HE was a child, he had a SEGA Genesis and he said he loved playing Sonic games on it. Before my father told me about Sonic, I don't remember ever playing any video game. Sonic the Hedgehog was the first video game series I liked and I still like it today.
And at the same time I was a hardcore Sonic fan, I was also aware that SEGA made a lot of mistakes, and that led to some serious shit. Despite SEGA making a ton of bad games, glitches, and even redesigning their flagship mascots ONLY for a spinoff series, making Sonic's arms blue, a minor change that pissed no one off except for a certain fat manchild who pepper sprayed a GameStop employee. Despite all that, I still love Sonic the Hedgehog because when I was a toddler, his video games always cheered me up from a bad day, Sonic games were always there for me, and I loved playing Sonic Advance 1, 2, and 3 on my Game Boy Advance.
If anyone from SEGA is reading this, I wish you and your company good luck and I hope you feel better about yourselves and your company. You might have lost alot of your fans, but you haven't lost me. Sonic will always be my #1 favorite video game character.
