1991. The year Sonic the Hedgehog spin dashed its way onto the Sega Genesis and ushered in the era of “blast processing.” My first console was the original NES,followed by the Super Nintendo, the Genesis’ direct competitor & I stuck with Nintendo consoles in my early gaming career but I always wanted to wander over to the dark side & experience console exclusives like Sonic the Hedgehog, Toe Jam & Earl, Comix Zone, Sega’s version of Aladdin with the hand drawn characters, & several others. But I digress. This week’s Nerdy Tunes Thursday is dedicated to RedShoes McFastBlurQuickzalez aka Sonic the Hedgehog.
If you have any suggestions for a future Nerdy Tunes Thursday, plant some thought seeds in our comment garden below or tweet us at @nerdworktweets !
