The Rock is cooking atm..
Was just wondering about how Sonic and Mario were introduced around the same time (if im not mistaken) and since they were kind of head to head, I mean Sega promoted Sonic as a way to combat against Nintendo's Mario, right? It's always interesting to see how far both franchises, gaming characters have come. Why do you guys think Mario trumped Sonic over time? What made Mario more successful, spawning off more sequels and more games and gaining a whole lot more notoriety? If anything, the premise of Sonic the Hedgehog had way more potential, meaning that the idea of a Hedgehog running at the speed of light, would've seem more "cooler" than a middle aged plumber that was italian? Hmmm ... What do you guys think attributed to Mario's success over Sonics? Just something I thought would be nice to discuss and gather opinions over
