And while our little blue blur is great (most of the time); he wasn't always SEGA's only big series.
Video games have received a fair amount of criticism from popular media over the years, especially when it comes to violence and nudity. Those on the outside looking in only see what they presume to be nerds and geeks wasting away quality time.
