Blue Hedgehog with red and white sneakers who as to be the fastest hedgehog ever. We all know him as Sonic the hedgehog who was created by SEGA. Sonic the Hedgehog became very popular from the first SEGA Master system with the first Sonic the Hedgehog video game later also came on the handheld SEGA Game gear and SEGA Mega Drive.

Over the years, even more, games were produced and just kept getting better and better. From the first ever Sonic the hedgehog to Sonic 2 which introduced us to Sonics friend Tails. More games were produced and even cartoons and comics. Sonic has been a popular game and series which many children have grown to love. From Sonic with other characters from Tails to Amy and Knuckles and the evil Dr. Robotnik always trying to destroy Sonic.

Sonic is fast and if you played the games and seen the Cartoon you will know what I mean by this. In the game you collect items like in other games you collect coins in Sonic you collect gold rings. Every 100 you collect you gain an extra life and in some sonics, you gain a continue and also special stages to enter after completing the level. Sonic soon grew into other games like go-karting to even Pinball game using sonic in the pinball tables.

Sonic as to be the most popular game in all of SEGA's creations and now you can still play the classic SEGA Sonic the Hedgehog on the Xbox 360 or Xbox One on the game called Sega Mega drive Ultimate collection. You can also buy on Amazon and other stores the new mega drive built-in games with sonic on this new device like the old days in the retro world we use to play.

Called the New Sega Mega Drive with 81 built-in games, but there are also other known devices like this.

Great fun with friends and family with Sonic the Hedgehog

Annoying when attacked as you lose all rings you collect so need to collect them again




I have to like Sonic, because he was my son's favorite when he was little. I always liked his blueness anyway. Sonic and his sidekicks were very popular in our house back in the day.

Sonic has charisma

I have huge respect for mario series and it is indeed the brand image of nintendo for decades. But on the other end there is sonic which in itself is a legend game chracter. I love sonic more as I have played sega much more in my young days. While my only interaction with super mario was when I had a gameboy. Sonic had the same sort of games on PC. But mario was not released for the PC windows. Sonic R is my favorite sonic game.

Even though Mario is more well known amongst people, especially for the games. Sonic is my choice, because it's a bit more different and unique in a way, I like the whole aesthetic a bit more. There might be more people who know the Sonic cartoon though.
Posted by manmad on 04-15-2018

more appealing to me

I like the design a little more and I like Sonic's movement a little more as well. I like them both almost equally as I honestly don't really play either characters' games all that much but I think I would give the edge a bit more to Sonic just because I like his first game a lot more and played with it way more than Mario's first game. I think there are far more Mario games now though so maybe I will change my mind once I give the other Mario games a try but in overall design I just prefer Sonic a little bit more.

More fun to play

It is not as classic as Mario but I enjoyed playing it even more. The animations were better and had more game adaptations which I also enjoyed playing. I think that Sonic was just underrated compared to Mario but it was more fun for me. I even played more Sonic games than Mario games.

Who would have thought a plumber from Brooklyn would have the powers to do things like grow when collecting a mushroom to stars making him invincible and flowers allowing him to shoot fire out his finger. Yes, Mario Known with his brother Luigi as the Super Mario brothers who are plumbers from Brooklyn. Mario wearing a red hat and top with blue overalls and white gloves with the M symbol in his plumber's cap.

Mario is well known for Nintendo and as many games in its merchandise out there from Video games to cartoons and also as made a movie called Super Mario Bros in1993 based on the Video games of the super Mario brothers.

The games from the first Mario brothers to Mario 2 and super Mario brothers 3 and continues into Mario World and also Mario Kart where you control Mario brothers characters on Go-karts race to the finish. Mario has continued to grow even still in this day on age also onto the Nintendo Wii to the New Nintendo Switch. Mario is loved by many, Mario starting off small at the beginning of the game just simply hit the question mark block and collect a mushroom to double your size.

Need firepower, no problem collect a Flower for Flower power and blast your enemies with your firey finger. Not just that how about collecting a leaf, grow a tail and take to the sky and even collect gold coins.

Bring back childhood memories with the famous plumber from Brooklyn Hours of fun with great adventures which Mario Undertakes

Can be adictive playing these type of games and often frustrating.




This was quite a difficult decision for me because I love them both. I loved playing Sonic and Mario when I was a kid. But I had to go with Mario because I did play Super Mario a lot more than I did Sonic when I was younger. It was just so much fun and a great family game. The thing is that, there are a lot of different games for Mario which makes it even better.

Better quality games

When I was younger, I preferred Sonic the Hedgehog over Mario. Sonic looked a lot cooler than Mario (who's a plumber). Sonic was cute and had super speed.

But as time passed and I matured, I realized that Mario was a lot better. The Mario games were a lot more polished, had better gameplay and had more fun factor as compared to the sonic games. That's probably why Mario is still alive up to this day while Sonic is about to become extinct.

Posted by limberg on 02-17-2018


My vote goes to the Mario franchise because I have spent way more hours playing their games in comparison to Sonic. I did play a few Sonic games as well but I never got addicted to them or anything.

But Mario... it's just so much fun! You can play it a kid or an adult, it doesn't matter. The levels and the legendary music is just the best.

Better games.

I consider myself a lover of all things retro gaming. I grew up with a Super Nintendo, and even to this day, 90% of the games I play are from the early to late 90's. I may even seem bias to some degree since Super Mario World was the first game I ever played, but the truth is that Mario simply had better games. Even to this day, Mario has better games. I just recently played the first Sonic the Hedgehog game--which just about everyone loves--but I just didn't think it was a good game. For a character that's known for going fast, the pacing felt sporadic and the gameplay generally mediocre. His design is cool, but I just don't like the games.
Posted by Denis_P on 02-21-2018


I think Mario is lot better character. And the levels of the games are funny and enjoying too. Lot of fun while playing the game. And it was indeed interesting to play the game. I guess mario on the other hand is lot more improved over the years too.
Posted by overcast on 02-17-2018


I'm a Nintendo girl. Always have and always will, therefore it's pretty obvious I'll pick the most iconic Nintendo character ever.

Mario is so famous that even someone that has never picked a game in their lives knows about him, making him perhaps one of the most widely-recognized pop culture icons, and as such he deserves to win.

Posted by VintageRose on 02-20-2018


This is a game that you can never get tired of playing. I mean when I take out time to watch the lines and the efforts that the developers added to make it an amazing game, you get to see the need to keep playing the game. It is one that you will get to enjoy much more than the other games that we have out there.
Posted by Barida on 11-06-2018


The Mario universe is far more interesting and expansive than the Sonic'verse or universe. Sonic however had a good run as a SEGA character. They just never really expanded on the material beyond a few enemies, one arch enemy and a sidekick who never really evolved.

Mario Brothers

I've been a fan of Mario and Luigi since version 1 and that was a lot of years ago. Nowadays I'm still playing it with my kids using our PlayStation and it's fun hearing it's iconic music and sounds. I played Sonic too, but Mario games to me are still the best.

Across all ages!

Who doesn't know Super Mario? When it come to popularity, Sonic is far behind Mario. On a game play perspective, I think Mario has still the upper hand because of it's variation and user friendly controls and movements. Plus points the bonus stages that you can discover in each stage.
Posted by JB Fernandez on 02-20-2018

Greater variety

the Mario games have such a wide variety of games to be played which makes it fresh every time a game comes out. I also grew up with the classic Super Mario Bros. platformers so Mario has a special place in my heart.
Posted by treecko142 on 02-17-2018

Super Mario!

I think I'd go for this one because it is what I played often during those old days when it was still a popular video game. And I find it more enjoyable too and I like its background music. Today, when I hear Super Mario's familiar tunes, many good memories from my childhood days flashed back in my memory. I am already missing those days. I'm glad I am one of all people who have tried to play this wonderful game.
Posted by mitan143 on 04-23-2018

Super Mario!

Both are good and popular video games that had bee part of my childhood, however there's no one who can replace Super Mario in my heart. I remember playing this in our neighbor's DVD player because in our country, if you'll buy a DVD during the early 2000's you'll have a free Super Mario game DVD and a game controller. Now, it's included anymore in DVD sets. How I miss playing this game. Although it's already available in PlayStore and iOS I guess, the old version is still the best and it's irreplaceable.

Childhood game

Super Mario was the first game I played when I was a kid. It reminds so much of my childhood days. I remember that my friends and I were playing this on our family computer. So much fun to play. I find it very adventurous and enjoyable. Now that I am an adult, I still enjoy playing this game.
Posted by superlicca on 10-20-2018

My childhood

I've been playing this game ever since when I was a kid. I prefer this one than Sonic, though I was also amused by it. I just don't like Sonic's graphics and the gameplay itself, it causes me headache. I like Super Mario more cause it has pleasant vibes, cute characters and friendly graphics. It is also addicting and it's a great game overall.
Posted by Einalem on 11-01-2018


Mario is a classic game, I think I first knew how to play mario than know how to read.
Posted by allyn2017 on 11-07-2018


I choose Mario. I know him. I am familiar with him in super Mario game.
Posted by menchuuy58 on 11-22-2018


Sonic versus Mario which is better? Both of this games are great and fun to play. When I see this games I always remember the good times that I spend playing this games with my brother and cousins when I was a kid.

These two games are amazing and it is hard to make a decision but if I would choose only one between the two. I would go with Mario because I played Mario more than sonic.

Posted by antonToledo on 12-17-2018


I think mario and sonic both are interesting games. I find Mario one funny. The reason being it is hard too. And also funny at the same time. You can see that some of the time such games can be interesting for the fun part. That's what I have learned to work around with. So that being said, you can see that mario has it's set of the funny games that I enjoyed a lot.
Posted by overcast on 02-17-2018
I think both are really cool and really are two games that marked my childhood. But I have to admit that Mario was actually cooler. I could choose both options, but as I have to choose only one of them, then my choice is Mario.
Posted by hermessantos on 02-17-2018
Two great games that made childhood fun, wouldn't forget the Super Mario games and even the cartoons it was really fun then at least when watching with friends.Mario games have been really addictive and I keep playing as the came up with different version and names, Mario is really cool for kids.
Posted by lovely on 02-18-2018
I think I will choose Mario. I had a great time playing it in my childhood days. I and my friends always love to play this game together. One of us will be Mario and the other one is Luigi. We would try our very best to save the princess and kill the dragon.
Posted by anahbello1206 on 02-18-2018
This post actually reminds me of my childhood. I loved playing these games when I was still a kid and it was so much fun. If I have to choose which game I like the best between the two then it will be Mario for me. I used to spend hours playing this game and I can still recall my mum yelling at me for spending too much time in front of the computer. Even in my late teens, I was still playing that game. This game marked my childhood.
Posted by Pixie on 02-18-2018
This reminds me of the new computer of my husband’s brother. During that time, the home computer is a rarity since it is very expensive. My brother-in-law bought a new one and guess what? That brand new, expensive desktop was from Super Mario. Oh no, can you dig that? I was really disgusted because that computer could be used for typing and spreadsheet but over there, it was just for playing a video game. In fairness to Super Mario, I have to agree that it is an entertaining game not only for the children but also for the adults.
Posted by Corzhens on 02-18-2018
Well, I am not a gamer and I have never played these games, however, Mario is identifiable for me because of his interesting looks. sadly, I have never heard of Sonic. I never took interest in gaming since my childhood. When I was a child, we did not have our own computers. I did have access to computers in school, but at school we were not allowed to play games. I had my first computer when I was in late teens and by that time I was more interested in working rather than playing games.
Posted by vinaya on 02-21-2018
I like Super Mario because it reminds me of my childhood days. I remember I used to play it in family computer together with tetris. Even if its not as high graphics as the games today, for me its more entertaining to play this kinds of games. I also played the Super Sonic but it was in Playstation 2 so the graphics is totally different than that of picture above and it is also entertaining but compared to Super sonic I love Crash Bandicot more.
Posted by nekonieden on 03-09-2018
I prefer Super Mario because their adventures are far more interesting and challenging. It was an addicting game and it was the more popular video game in my generation. Of course, the graphics would be sub par by today's standards but back then, it was the best we can have. Besides the Super Mario game, I enjoyed other games on the cartridge like Cobra and sports games like volleyball and tennis. We had all the time to play them during summer and what a wonderful period it was! These days, I can't even sit down long enough to play SIMS.

I'm a Mario fan, I've been playing Mario games since when i was a kid. Now my kids and i are having a great time playing Mario as a family. Although i miss the 2D platforms, new Mario games in 3D are enticing and my kids love it. Mario games for is not only a game, it's part of my childhood and i consider it as a tradition.
Posted by fishbate on 05-11-2018
Mario and Sonic has been around for a long time and my personal favorite would be Mario. I already finished the game when I was a kid and literally repeat it many times. Me and my siblings we're addicted to this game and take turns in defeating King Koopa. Even at this age I'm at I still want to play the Mario Bros. game since I bought a classic game console which has the classic Mario games of course it wouldn't be a complete classic console if there's no Mario in it.

Botj games a really good. But, I have played mario more.

If Sega makes its long rumored comeback - then perhaps we will see some new SONIC THE HEDGEHOG games released.

I choose Mario. I love to play Super Mario in the computer. I am familiar with Mario more than Sonic.
