The characters are uninteresting, there’s way too many of them and the games are generally pretty shitty. Sure all the colors are pretty and zooming around town as Sonic can be entertaining for a minute, but other than that most of the Sonic games lack basic mechanics that…oh, who am I kidding? Just watch the video and let them explain it all for you.
