Is Sonic fast enough to catch the success that continuously eludes him?

Oh Sonic, what has happened to you? At one time Sonic was considered the most popular and well-known video game character of all time. His original games on the Sega were fast paced, exciting, and hugely successful. You zoomed through the game's stages collecting rings and saving the poor critters trapped by Dr. Eggman. Then consoles got better and Sonic’s games got worse.

The worst Sonic game of all was Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) which was full of bugs and looked awful. The game even featured a romantic relationship between Sonic and the human protagonist girl… like what? Sonic is a hedgehog! Anyway, people still remember him for what he was. We will see how long Sonic can ride the wave of fame from his past.
