I don't hate Sonic, but Sonic fandom is terrible because it have like: too much OC or Mary-Sues, too much porn or fetish art, shadow fangirls, shipping wars, recolors.
I hope Sonic Mania (new videogame) would be good and it could to love me Sonic again.
I never played Alex Kidd, but I thought it was pretty good.

Classic Sonic games were really great.
Some modern series like as Sonic Adventure, Sonic Advance, Sonic Heroes are actually good.

This good fanart but for me inside I think now that the sonic games have got some good or at lest okay ones. I think that the Sonic hate is getting boring now because we have Sonic Colours and Sonic Generations or even the Gameboy and ds games. I don't wanna sound like Sonic fag but I am already a faggot.

from what I've heard, Alex Kidd kinda died off a little by the time Sonic came by, due to them not quite getting the formula right even after Enchanted Castle. So when Sonic came by, and his popularity rapidly grew, Sega seemed to had dropped Alex. I always had an inside joke that Kidd went to become an assassin, trying to kill off Sonic, but just missing. Sonic does seem to be screwing himself over though.

Actually, it was because Nintendo was going to sue for a boss in Alex Kidd named Mari-oh in Shinobi World.

No matter how much I love Alex, Sonic still kicked his ass. I'm not even mad that he replaced him. I mean yall don't get it do you? Alex was made to rival Mario., but wasn't a okay platformer to push on through If he was placed in this gen SEGA would die instantly. I love Alex, but he wasn't too good to match up Mario. Only Sonic was. Because Sonic have chance.

Ah, man! I love the layout of this poster. I have to be honest, when Sonic went 3D the games pretty much died for me.
This said, I didn't know his origins were in a human character!

Um, why complain when Alex has appeared in not one, but THREE recent SEGA games: SEGA Superstars Tennis, Sonic & SEGA All stars racing, and Sonic & All stars racing Transformed. Not only that but he even has his own collection on the Xbox arcade called Alex Kidd & Co. SEGA has'nt forgotten him. And Theres nothing wrong with Sonic either.

sorry friend but sonic is a very shit. run run run and then what? Alex. has been forgotten because of sonic.alex ran, swam, guided motorcycle, speedboat, helicopter and had a lot of cool powers! it seems that Sonic has been inserted to the casual gamer .. "Look Ma if I hold down -> finish the level." -.- "

Excuse me? Sonic has never been about mindlessly running, except in a few select games. And while he doesn't have as much diversity in his gameplay as Alex did (likely because people complain whenever he tries to diversify), his games are a lot more interesting and fun in my opinion.

Just so you know, I don't hate Alex. I just think that Sonic is better.

You do not even have 15 years, shut up. You only played the blue fucking hedgehog, which runs straight and does nothing! A stupid game and easy, every time you slam on an enemy just collect the rings that will fall from the ass and you are safe. Only has colorful graphics with palm trees that move and the bees that go around for the children who like the teletabbies, is boring, and ugly .. and children like you need to stop defending him.

I'm 24 years old and yes .. Sonic's just colorful graphics with nice animations, animals that move in the background, for retarded children, there's nothing to do, press and hold the "right" button until the end of the level .. if you're going to bump into an enemy just collect the rings that you lose. fucked up!

Have you even played any of the games? I can assure you, there is a lot more to the gameplay than "hold right to win". But I doubt anything I say will convince you, so lets agree to disagree.

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the Alex Kidd games suck ass even more than Sonic? I'm not denying that Sonic has been crap for ages now, I'm not even a Sonic fan, but honestly- if I were given the choice between playing as a fast blue spiky cyclops cat who attacks with spin-jumps, and a monkey-eared Mario rip-off who dies to such trivial things as toy airplanes and falling down stairs and fights with rock-paper-scissors, I think I'm going with the genetically mutated freak, son.

I've played Enchanted Castle... 5 seconds in I died from attempting to drop-kick a toy airplane. And in that adventure game he dies from the stupidest of things, such as falling down stairs, getting into a suit of armor and being electrocouted by a computer. I know what the hell I'm talking about-  Alex is officially one of the gimpiest characters in gaming history. And yes, he was a blatant attempt to rival Mario.

Yes, I'm Italian but that does not matter, baby. Miracle World is very different from Enchanted ... but you've only played the latter ... so you have to shut up and put the hedgehog that runs in your ass ;D ok? bye

I love Sonic (sorry, he's my favourite franchise) but this is wonderful, especially the bosses, it's always nice to see fanart of things that to you (as in me) are just part of your childhood/life but to everyone else is obscure.

That's quite a great idea! (I will say that the latest game Sonic Generations made me love the hedgehog again though)
But it would be nice if they did bring the Kidd back...
