Here's a big preview of Sonic. I know there's some Sonic fans here. I've seen a few submissions dealing with him and his buddies. Man I still remember playing Sonic back on my Sega Game Gear. What a disapointment that machine was. It was so much better than Game Boy for its time. I mean it was in color and the screen lit up. I would even say the graphics were better than the Game Boy games of the time. Maybe it was because the unit was a little bigger? It was just a shame to see it die an early death. But I did trade mine in towards the purchase of Game Boy Color when those first came out. The Game Gear games just dried out.
Anyhow, here's Sonic:
