E3 2010: Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Gets It Right
Donkey Kong Returns In Style

Mainstream Media Calls Fan-Created Image "Worst Video Game Of All-Time" [sic]

Sonic the Hedgehog Oh, mainstream media.  I admire your continued attempts to understand the video game culture, but you're just not suited to running articles best left to places like Kombo and 1up.  Thanks to one of my readers from Florida who sent me a slideshow piece running on the local CBS affiliate's website entitled "Game Over: Worse Video Games Of All-Time" [sic] in which the usual low-hanging fruit is plucked: E.T. and Pac-Man for the Atari 2600 are at the top of the list, for instance, along with other titles those of us who follow video gaming closely are sick of hearing about such as Action 52 (with The Cheetahmen which, for some ill-informed reason, the article lists as a Nintendo-created product) and one of the Legend of Zelda games for the Philips CD-I.  Get down to the bottom of the list and you'll find the 2006 release of Sonic the Hedgehog which belongs on such a list, but not when it's represented by fan-created artwork.  Slide 45 of the article mistakes some of the fantastic desktop wallpaper of classic games created by Mikaël "Orioto" Aguirre as an actual screenshot of Sonic the Hedgehog.  The next time the mainstream media wonders why modern generations do not turn to it for news in favor of niche websites, this pathetic slideshow should be on the list of reasons.
