Happy 25 years Sonic! Let's not start this article with the same old "he's had a rough few years..." speech you've seen time and time again -- let's celebrate some of the hedgehog's highs and some of the great things he's been able to accomplish in his time as one of gaming's most iconic characters.
And one thing Sonic's always consistently achieved greatness with? Music.
Even some of his worst outings are accompanied with a memorable soundtrack, with songs ranging anywhere from guitar fuelled high octane pieces to epic violin and drum tracks which accentuate epic boss battles.
So without further ado, let's take a look (and a listen) to some of the best songs from Sonic's recent outings. Get your headphones ready!
