I love both of these games a lot however sonic has always been my favorite. I started playing Sonic when I was very young. I played it on my Sega Genesis all the time. My favorite character was Tails in sonic. Do you prefer Mario Or Luigi? Sonic or Tails?

Ah, a timeless classic gaming debate.

I'd put it like this.

Sidescrollers - As much as I love Mario, Sonic has a clear edge here.

Open 3D world - Mario. Sonic's high speed aspect just didn't work out well with the 3-D thing. It's a lot easier to control and feels faster on a two dimensional plane.

I liked Sonic, but never was a huge fan. I'd have to go with Mario. Super Mario 64 is better than any Sonic game. I loved the hell out of some of the Mario games when I was a kid.

I feel like this should be a poll. As I like what I have played of both games, but I'm going to go for Mario now just because I've played a lot more of his games than Sonic ones.

I'll go with Mario. Sonic was great, and I had a lot of fun playing the first three games but he's got nothing on Mario. Super Mario Bros. 3 & Mario Kart 64 are just too tough to beat.

It would have been a poll but I forgot that you could make polls. I won't forget next time!

You can add a poll by going to the top of any thread you've created and selecting the "Thread Tools" dropdown menu. There should be an option to add a poll. Steve can show it to you I'm sure.

I am sure an S-Mod can add a poll for you. Get your other half on that!

Sonic was the first game I ever played when I got my Mega Drive, so it's safe to say it was love at fight sight. I never had a Nintendo, nor was I too fussed about that. I did like Donkey Kong which I played at my friend's house, but I could not get in to Mario.

I love Sonic, but I would go with Mario. Mario is more versatile and has many different types of games attached to his name.

I really liked Sonic but I really only played one game.

So its gotta be Mario for me. I played the hell out of those games when I was a kid.
