    My roommates left it on in the living hear listen to the music for a sec. I come walking out and start playing the game. They both looked at me wide eye and said they didn't know you could play it.

    Damn potheads! lol

    I couldn't be bothered playing long enough to see if it has the intermission music after level 3.

    One of the greatest computer games ever Pacman.

    Wowwwwww.

    My parents will love this.

    I will swear an oath of fealty to Google if they ever do this to celebrate Sonic's anniversary. And what do you know, the 20th anniversary is coming up next year.

    Start planning, Googleheads! You shall now decide whether or not you have my favor.

    Sonic sucked though?

    Mario much better game despite not having speed or whizz-bang graphics.

    Also Mario was never lusted after by furries.

    Anyways this almost makes up for Google becoming the next pre-antitrust Microsoft.

    Opinions are like...

    :p

    Wholly relative.

    It was never even about speed for me. I have grown up with the game and so it has a special place for me. I'm sure Mario similarly has a special place for you.

    Also funny to say Mario's better considering your country's voted Sonic the best. :p

    Gee. I wonder why a non-furry was never lusted after by furries. :p

    Nope, my brother had a Sega.

    Only when I worked as a games programmer was the superiority of Mario apparent.

    When I got a GBA it was confirmed.

    Mario > Sonic.

    And let's not even start on Super Mario 64 (best launch game ever)

    Wonderful.

    You know, I don't know why I bother.

    You like Mario, fine. More power to you.

    But I'm not going to give your opinions the weight of the word of God. I like Sonic better, and that will never change. I also like Klonoa better than Pac-Man by a far margin; I'd prefer the former as Namco's guy.

    If you don't like it, well, tough cookies.

    I will still be advocating Hedgehog Day for Google.
