23 years ago today, the video game world was introduced to the one and only Sonic the Hedgehog. Before Sonic, Super Mario was the undisputed champion of video game mascots. The little blue blur changed all of that and to this day he remains an iconic figure not only in the world of gaming but in pop culture as well.
I got a Sega Genesis back in 1991 when I was 11 and Sonic the Hedgehog was my favorite game for it at the time. As great as that game was, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was even better. The highlight for me was Sonic CD which, to this day, is my favorite game in the series.
To celebrate this occasion, Steam is having a 50% off sale from now to June 30th on the Sonic Hits Collection. This collection contains pretty much every major Sonic the Hedgehog game you can imagine. You can get in on the sale and see the full list of games by following this link.
