Power up Players! Thank you for reading my extremely delayed response to the Question of the Month hosted by our friends over at Later Levels! Each month other game bloggers and myself answer the question posed by Later Levels or the community. It’s a great way to get involved and I’m very thankful to Kim for letting me participate! I was working on the NaNoWriMo challenge in November, so along with less blog posts, i was unable to submit my answers for the poll. I still enjoyed the question so I will post my opinion and answer here and then you all can visit the Later Levels blog to read and vote for your favorite answer!
This month’s question was submitted by : Nathan!
Which video game character would make the best Santa?
The first character that popped into my head instinctively wa Sonic the hedgehog. After a careful analysis of my Sonic gaming history, I’ve realized that he would make a fantastic Saint Nick!
Comparison : Sonic Versus Santa
In most Sonic games, especially the early generation games, your goal was to speed through maps or “Zones” to stop the plans of the evil Dr. Robotnik or Eggman! In order for Sonic to accomplish this task, he had to find and collect the Chaos Emeralds so that he could use the powers of the united Emeralds to defeat his enemy and save whatever animals or characters that were under siege. Sonic also collected rings that allowed him to gain strength. Bam, that’s Sonic! As the games progressed, Sonic was joined by friends who would help him defeat his enemies as well. From this analysis, I can already see great qualities that would make Sonice an excellent Santa!
- Sonic is a master in searching for Chaos Emeralds! This savvy makes Sonic an excellent gift giver! He is able to search all of the best deals whether he’s at the mall or shopping online to find the gifts that everyone wants. You want an exclusive toy, if you were nice all year, Sonic will find it!
- Sonic is super fast and as far as I have seen a tank of endurance and stamina. Sonic can definitely take on the monumental task of delivering the presents all over the world in one night. He doesn’t need magic, all he needs are a few chilli dogs and plenty of water.
- Sonic’s entourage of friends would definitely assist in building the slay with Tails, wrapping the presents with Amy, Stuffing the Stockings with Cream and even picking the coolest toys with Knuckles. Sonic’s friends are definitely the “Elves” and “Toyshop workers” that help Santa fulfill the wishes of all nice children!
Those are my reasons for picking Sonic the Hedgehog as the best video game character that would work well as Santa! What are your thoughts? Do you agree with my answer?
