For anyone who was gaming 20 years ago, this is is an absurdly surreal image to witness. Sure, There have been plenty of Sonic games on Nintendo systems since Sega bowed out of the console race, but Nintendo Power's retro-styled cover complete with classic Sonic still gives me chills. It really puts things in perspective. 20 years from now, will it really matter if Xbox 360, PS3, or Wii was the "best" system? No. It's the games that endure.
Sorry, I think I have something in my eye.
Anyway, I'm supposed to be reporting the news, right? The reason for the fantastic magazine cover is to announce the 3DS version of Sonic Generations. The cover also mentions a new Shinobi game, which is perhaps more exciting news than a new Sonic game since it's been 9 years since the last game in that series was released. All that's old is new again, eh?
Now I'm in a nostalgic mood, so let's get some discussion going in the comments. What are some of your favorite console war memories? Of course, they'll all seem silly in retrospect, but that's kind of the point. Let the absurdity of blind fandom be known, and hopefully fanboys and girls of current hardware can look in the mirror and see just how silly and petty the arguments are.
