Here’s another blast from the past. An ad for the debut of Sonic the Hedgehog. Although the Sega Genesis had been out for a while, it really didn’t “arrive” until Sega had come up with their own counterpart to Mario. That was Sonic and he had a major impact on sales.

Playing Sonic 1 now feels soooo slow, but at the time it was pretty fast paced gaming. I remember my cousin had a Genesis before I did and we played the hell out of some Sonic. I fondly remember beating it as well. Sonic was great because you could play it really fast and just roll through several levels. I still have my Sonic Mega Collection and pop it in from time to time.
