    I WISH I could vote for sonic, but in recent years I have come to known that sonic has died....he died after that werewolf game, a sad sad death.... the other car was full of drunks! Yet I fear not! For Sega's Sonic Team is working on Phantasy Star! Perhaps they will redeem themselves in my eyes...

    Well, no matter how much the games suck, they sell well.

    Alot of casual games sell well and they aren't good enough to be called real games.

    Sonic is kinda cooler than mario, but his games have recently gotten less popular, even though they sold well.:argue:

    It's about the amount of units sold which was what I was talking about.

    But many plays a factor. Better games make more money as they usually sell more.

    Mario games were generally better and more interesting than sonic - that till nintendo started whoring mario out for every roll possible (Pinball come on now your scraping the bottom of the barrel now!)

    As for Tv series they both had them, but early sonic was rather more insane with a sort of "Ren and Stimpy" sort of art for the mostpart - not bad, but rather lacking in an overall driving plot. Mario (I saw little of this) seemed to be better constructed.
    More recently Sonic has had several more series (mostly independant of each other and of the original) which appear to be a bit more serious - not too much - but a little.

    in the end Mario on the N64 wins game wise
    Sonic I think wins cartoon wise
    mag wise no idea never read any of them

    and meh I still like Mario the game so its mario!

    Back in the good old days Sonic was 1000X better than Mario, yet nowadays when I plan on Sonic the Dark Brotherhood chronicles on being innovative and new, I get as BS game with an ending that literally tells you to buy the next ****ing game. While now games that are guaranteed good like the DS Mario and Luigi turn based games are getting a 3rd sequel that they deserve. I'm not saying Sonic is bad its just that recently Sonic games suck ass. Also how the hell can you criticize mario for being odd when THE SONIC SERIES HAS A ****ING FOX WITH TWO ****ING TAILS THATS ****ING GLOWING YELLOW! Seriously you can't talk about strangeness on both sides, also its saddening that no one can respect that both sonic and mario are cool, its either Sonic is a *** or Mario is a fagtart.

    I like both games, just prefer Mario. I would choose it over Sonic had I been given a hand held console to paly in a car journey or something.

    Have you ever played Shadow The Hedgehog? That game was alright imo. You have the option of being Evil, Good or Neutral (you can switch sides during the level) It's sort of like those "Which Way Books" where depending on which actions you take the next level (outcome) will be different, ie. Good throughout the level will take you to one level but if you were on Evil's side during that same level you will end up in a totally different level then if you had been good. (If that makes any sense). And in that game you don't have to go straight only...lol
