    When Sonic is on, he's on. Sure, times may have been kinder to Mario. But nothing stops blast processing!!

    Sonic 3 & Knuckles... FOREVER!!

    Both combatants primarily deal damage by jumping on their enemy's head. Sonic, however, is the the only one to have spikes on his scalp.

    Even if Mario wins, he loses.

    It can be argued that Mario has funner games. But as far as character goes, I have to head for the blue hedgehog of awesome.

    Sonic for sure!
    Mario may be able to grow from a simple mushroom, or hack fire or ice balls, but give Sonic the chaos emeralds and no force ON EARTH can stop him!!!

    I like Sonic games a lot more than Mario games, blasphemous as it may be considered.

    Mario has revolutionized gaming, and has managed to maintain high quality titles to this day. His only downfall is getting whorred out to side games, but Sonic is guilty of that to, like *Ahem* Mario and Sonic in the Olympics.

    Seriously, I love both though. Mario just has more titles to his name that are incredible.

    I'm pretty much going to have to go with this word for word. Since I prefer fun games to "good characters" (as in, I'm okay with not knowing basically anything about a character, so much as a game is fun), I went to go with Mario.


    Also I grew up with Nintendo, so my exposure to Sonic games is limited, even to this day.

    EDIT: Given the "subtle" emoticons in the poll, I'm going to go ahead and guess that you are on Mario's side.

    Mario. But I'm a born and raised Nintendo boy so I'm rather biased.

    Also, those emoticons in the poll aren't exactly subtle.

    Mario. I have yet to play a Sonic game that I feel compelled to play longer than five minutes.

    I voted Sonic. Mainly because the thread doesn't specify if its a question about who would win in a fight or who's had better games. I choose to interpret it as the former, and in that case, Sonic's abilities far outclass Mario's as he needs almost no help, while Mario is reliant on help from Mushrooms/Fire Flowers/whatever.

    In terms of games, then Mario gets the win, if only because the only Sonic Game i can say i liked was Sonic Heroes. The rest of them weren't my cup of tea. Still, i'd say a fast hedgehog is cooler than a plumber any day.
