Sonic the Hedgehog is Empire Mag’s 14th Greatest VG Character

May 26, 2010

Empire Magazine has put the speedy blue hedgehog in a comfortable 14th spot in Gaming’s Greatest Characters list, here’s how they describe the blue one:

Sonic’s just your regular, blue teenage hedgehog. One who’s able to blitz across the screen at ludicrously high speed. Oh, and survive all the centrifugal pressure you’d expect to endure when spinning about on your rear as you perform loop-de-loops in bizarrely well-designed circles of earth littered around the golden-ring covered landscape. Just a blue anthropomorphised hedgehog. With a mutant flying fox and a floating, climbing Echidna for friends.

Sonic’s charm is in his swagger, his speed, and that shocked little face he pulls when he loses all his rings on a spike. Gaming’s answer to The Flash, his sheer speediness and unhinged desire for thrill-taking is what makes him so playable, a fluid, fun-loving mentalist who can roll into a perfectly spherical ball at an extreme pace. His dialogue may not win any awards, but he’s a super fast blue spiny hedgehog, what more do you want?

Sounds like Sonic, all right.
