An Important Study

One more Sonic comic, because I've still been playing it quite a bit. As a kid who grew up without a Genesis, I didn't get to play a whole lot of Sonic. The only times I really could is if I went to my friend's house. Needless to say, I never got as good at them as he did, but they were always fun to play. Even so, playing Generations is like a burst of nostalgia. I remain in awe of the level design, which has given me a deeper appreciation for how a proper Sonic game ought to be structured. It seems so clear that this is how it was supposed to be all along.

This weekend we got another one of our roommates to give the game a shot. He's a guy who grew up playing Sonic games, but began losing interest around the time of Sonic Heroes--I'm pretty sure that was the most recent one he's played. After cruising through a few levels of Sonic Generations, he expressed an urge to weep at how great it was.

The next one may or may not also be Sonic-related, depending on whether or not I can think up something good between levels.
