Sonic 3D: Flickies’ Island. Traveller’s Tales. (1997) Sega Saturn

Hi, my name is Jamie and I like to shitpost about Sonic games because it offends the sensibilities of the people out there that can’t see how terrible Sonic’s legacy truly is.

And after the many successes of fantastic games such as; Sonic The Fighter, Sonic R, and Sonic Adventure I thought I’d try a game I had never heard of.

I’ve been bashing poor Sonic on here quite a bit. It hasn’t been intentional, I’ve genuinely gone back to Sonic R and Sonic Adventure because I loved them as a child.
