The Blue Blur is not by himself, his girlfriends name is Amy Rose. He also has a robotic brother named Metal Sonic. Many people speculate as to why, after 20 years, countless comics, movies and television programs Sonic remains both popular and extremely addictive to new generations. Many assume that part of the success of the brand is the fact that there are constant updates and new game releases that keep up with the requirements of modern gamers. In addition, the fact that Sega welcomes the development of open-source flash games using the character means that many gamers are introduced to the character before needing to buy the game. Regardless of the various reasons for its success, Sonic the Hedgehog continues to net a massive amount of revenue for SEGA. The simple game MO includes the classic system of various levels in various settings. Levels ascend with increasing difficulty as new powers are adopted and points are accumulated. The simplicity of this system and its fresh permutations mean that a Sonic fan will never run out of interesting new challenges. In addition, as the games are only released every two years or so, many have turned to the flash games freely available online.
Sonic the Hedgehog is here to stay for years to come and continue to break the boundaries of modern video gaming. This is evident in the fact that his popularity now far surpasses his original rival, Mario. Team Sonic, at SEGA have made it quite clear that they intend to continue pushing the boundaries of what this blue little spiky character can accomplish.
