Happy Birtday Sonic the Hedgehog

Today everyone's favorite little blue hedgehog turns 20. When this little bastard was released into the world on June 23, 1991, the Sega Genesis became a must have and was starting to give Nintendo a run for their money. Not only was this the birth of a great and sometimes frustrating franchise, but at least to me, this was the true beginning of the console wars. It all of a sudden became Sonic vs. Mario over night. I remember sitting in the cafeteria in grade school and having an argument about who would win in a fight, Sonic or Mario.

Now, I know that Sonic hasn't been the nicest to us over the last few years. Wait, what the fuck am I saying? Sonic hasn't been nice to us since Sonic Adventure and that was well over ten years ago.That little fucker even teamed up with Mario a few times. Why Sonic? Why did you betray us like that? Making some dumb ass olympics game with Mario. That sir, is a slide against the video game gods.

But today I will forget all about that and just remember all those times I begged my mom for a GameGear so I could take you with me. Or sitting in the living room before school watching your cartoon, which most people say sucked, but I defended that shitty cartoon. So today I raise my glass to you Sonic and hope and pray that you can make a good game sometime in the future. We all know that the last few and the next one SUUUUCK! Happy birthday Sonic!

Oh, I know exactly how I and a few others I know are going to be celebrating this day. With a little bit of PowerGlove's So Sexy Robotnik! Check it out below.
